Keep making the same mistakes
I left a long term partner of 10 years 8 months ago. For the last 6 years there was no intimacy, no sex, we were essentially just close friends.
10 months ago I sort help from a therapist and medication to help with anxiety after a breakdown with a colloeague at work, and this started me thinking about the issues in my relationship.
Once I made the decision to split up and move out on my own, I have felt incredibly lonely, as we no longer have the friendship. This is especially hard when my fiends and family are in another state.
I have turned to online dating, but this has been an endless round of having my heart broken. After having had no intimacy for so long, I sleep with someone far too soon, and have them skip out / ghost me.
Im just so over feeling used, judged and disposed of, and alone, but I never learn.
There's not much else we can go on here, so perhaps what sort of activities, hobbies or places do you like going to, if we know this then I'm sure we can offer more help, but at the moment I would stay away from online dating, as it's not going to help you at all. Geoff.
hi Gelatobear, thanks so much for getting back to us and what you are doing seems to be great, plus you have been talking to your friends in Sydney and by deleting all these apps is a positive way to move forward.
I do hope that we can hear back from you as you do have a support base right here so please remember that. Geoff.
