I'm not broken hearted, but I am sad and unsure what to do. No word from Henry since Thursday, and no response to my very kind text on Sunday. Many relationships don't make it, thus I'm not surprised. But I thought we had a chance since there was a huge connection on many levels, and we always had so much fun when we went out. However, I don't think he has ever emotionally dealt with his wife's death; his twins turned 18 Friday and that seemed to throw him into a tailspin. I can't really forgive that he didn't respond to my text, nor let me know that he needed a break/wasn't ready to date, but I will wait a few days, then send another text, a more direct one. Personally, I believe he needs a new anti-depressant and some counseling. After four years, he shouldn't be melting down and withdrawing the way he does. :( At least our six months together have been mostly great and have shown me that I can enjoy a new relationship. It will be tough to move on, but not impossible. My friends and my daughters will be there for me. In fact, I already have Alison lined up for a Happy Hour! I'm still deciding if I want to date some more or just call it good. Right now, I'm on the fence, but leaning toward taking a dating break myself. Too much effort, too much uncertainty, too much awkwardness, too much pain.
