Being brave here. Over time the sexual side of my marriage disintegrated, a lot I believe changed once we had children, time and energy waned. Grabbing a few hours kip became priority (wrongly or rightly). Since my exs affair and eventually meeting someone myself my sexual being has returned! Intimacy and closeness has become hugely important to me, I actually enjoy it . Do others feel the same?
lol - well done Maisy, am afraid I am nowhere near that yet, or even want to be
I know in the scheme of things I am very early days, left stbx a year ago last March but as we are having to go down the court route (his choice) i am afraid that meeting someone else is very low down on my do to list. I think once I am actually divorced, I need to find me before I look for anyone else.
However, if Mr Right does not come along, i have my horses and my cat and that will do fine for me
Nice to hear that sometimes it can happen though - good luck to you
May be I have been lucky, I don''t know. Met my beau 10 months ago through internet dating!!! To be honest I tried it as a distraction really was probably very offish with him in early days but overtime began to trust him , something I never thought I would do again. I am more aware now and just take each day as it comes.,but enjoying it , 2 years ago I couldn''t eat or sleep for months and it felt like my life had ended, but now onwards and upwards:)
My stbx has met someone through internet dating - feel sorry for the woman really as his true colours will come out eventually, however like I said it is nice to hear that there is life after divorce, perhaps even for me, but for the moment I am enjoying my independance
Hi epitome it''s strange really I feel in a way I should of also had complete independence before someone new. But i also had no idea I would meet someone so soon that I would grow to trust. My whole family have met him except my dad, for some reason I can''t tell my father. I''m still his little girl and dont want him worrying anymore than he already has about me. Do others feel the same when it comes to their dads?
Maisy, I am sure that there is no time scale to meeting someone who makes you happy - I do believe that if you are not looking for Mr Right, he will just wander into your life regardless, no matter how you meet
I think it is purely your respect for your Dad that stops you introducing them, when the time is right, it will happen.
Unfortunately I lost my Dad when I was 21, the year before i married, he missed out on seeing both of his daughters get married - but I do know what you mean about not wanting him to worry about you
Yours is a happy story and it is lovely to hear as many posts are full of hurt and sadness, thank you for making me smile tonight
