I was in a situationship with a recently divorced single dad since September. I’m also a single parent. He ended things with me at the end of last month because he said he was no longer able to prioritize our relationship. He is also dealing with so many things with his kids and ex wife that is completely out of my control. So I can totally understand where he is coming from. However I still very much care about him and I miss him so much. We did not end on bad terms at all. We still talk here and there, and we have hung out once since the break up. I still want him part of my life. I don’t want this to end but I am afraid that I need to take control of my happiness and just move on. I can’t wait around for him, and I know that if I do I am putting myself through being hurt. I don’t want to go cold turkey on him but I just might have to give myself some space. I have been feeling so down and lost without him. I thought we had that special connection since we both lived similar lives. I want to be there for him. I once even wanted to heal him through this divorce. But I cannot control what he does, what he decides to do and what he wants from me. Maybe just maybe if things are meant to be in the future they will be. I need to accept that things happen for a reason. Things will all work out the way that they are supposed to. I wish him nothing but the best. I hope we can one day make it work. But for now its time for me to close this chapter.
