    Been with a man for 1 yr now just gone!

    My husband passed away 2 years ago. A year later I met a man who I fell in love with and from his actions and words also fell in love with me. He was always available and we were just like a normal couple. He had his place, I had mine and things were great this way for both of us. He had a part-time job at a car dealership, however he was involved with something else which I kind of knew but did not ask too many questions. We discussed it and I knew at any time he might have to pick up and leave but he would be back. He has lived in this area for 16 years. The other day he explained how sorry he was but had we could not see each other as he did not want to put me in danger with what was going on in his other life. I am so heart-broken and depressed. When my husband passed I had time to prepare, however this is worse as he has just walked out of my life with the explanation it is to protect me. He is 70 years old and I am 60. I am deeply depressed over this.

    sorry for your loss but if you knew he was involved with another person that was a red flag from the beginning………..my honest opinion is that I would not have gotten involved with a man who has someone else in his life. I also think that it was too soon for you to be that heavily involved with someone. I lost mine in 2013 and it took me 3 yrs to finally get around to being with another person. the dating pool in our old years is harder than the young kids. many people are set in the their ways.

    Sounds to me that he wasn’t completely sure what he wanted. You sound intelligent and I’m sure you will find someone else with less drama

    I guess you learned the hard way, but be careful about falling on love with someone who isn’t completely available for the relationship!

    I’m sorry that you had to learn the hard way about falling on love with someone who isn’t completely available for the relationship! As much as the break up hurts, it sounds like you’re going to be much better off now that it has.

    I think it was to soon for you to get into a love relationship. This man was not honest from the start and you were to sad and lonely to recognize it. There is something nefarious going on and you are lucky nothing else happened except a broken heart. Keep busy doing for others until your heart is mended, then you will find a quality partner.

    OK- I lost my husband in 2007 and for all of you telling this lady that she got involved in a relationship too soon – you need to step back. No one knows how much time someone needs before getting involved in a relationship again. That being said, it sounds like this man is someone who you need to walk away from. Take a breather – see friends, and flirt on dating sites again if you wish, but don’t let your life be ruled by this relationship. Men today seem to feel it is OK to just walk away from relationships with no explanation. Do you really want someone like that in your life? Consider yourself lucky and as Jeamlouose said, keep busy doing other things.

    I agree with above:
