I certainly have been in one.

Two weeks ago I ended my relationship with my BF of six mos. Though we made trips to see one another in the beginning, we hadn't seen or been together since the end of March. Due to money. He lives in MD. I live down here in Fl.

Though it was a short time to be together, only six mos., (we had known each other for a long time previous to coming together) we had hopes and dreams of a future together. I really loved this man, and still do. But for the life of me, I just couldn't take being in the long-distance relationship anymore. It was killing me. I began to feel like he had second thoughts, cold feet. Afraid of commitment by finally moving in together up there. He denied feeling any of that.

Anyhow...it's been two weeks since we have spoke. I miss him. I feel like the lowest loser in my life right now. It's summer, I'm not working (I'm putting this off until school begins again) my daughter is gone spending time with her Dad (my ex), and I'm alone. This is horrible.

What can one do to make it easier? I do not go out to bars and stuff...so that's out. I don't have any close friends aside from my mother. I feel like a recluse. I alway's thought that once I was single again (after my horrible 19 yr. marriage with the ex) ..I would glory in it...love it. But let me tell ya...it sucks after awhile.

Go window shopping, or go hang out at the beach. Go do something that you havent done in a long time. Do something special for yourself like get a haircut or a massage.

Find some singles groups at churches or with some group and get out there and start meeting people and doing things.

I htink it is an excellent time to find a charity or cause you believe in & get involved. Nothing makes us feel more empowered than making a difference & it is a great way to meet people that you have at least 1 common interest with. I know it can't be easy & I am not trying to sound like it is simple - but a journey of a 1000 miles begins with just one step & as long as you are stepping - you are moving toward progress. I hope you are feeling a bit better & hope you give an update soon.
