    He says he is "Emotionally Unavailable"

    We met online and met in person 3 months ago. Hit it off great. I am 44 never been married single mom. He is 46,divorced 2 yrs ago. We’ve met each other’s children, have a great sex life, etc.
    As he separated, he dated someone for 5 months seriously, then she left him with no explanation. Now he is still getting over her almost a yr later, still has to see her on occasion at work and realizes he probably isn’t ready for dating yet. But still wants to see me, even if we don’t have sex.

    He continues to reassure me that I am attractive, everything he is looking for in a woman, etc. He communicates his feelings articulately, writes poetry, has a great job, lives nearby, loves my daughter. It’s all perfect, except he just can’t feel enthusiastic. He has the capacity to be so romantic, it just isn’t directed at me because he is still consumed with getting over 5 month girl. Sees a therapist about it.

    I am frustrated n trying to be patient. I want to support him, but need more
