I can relate a little bit to some of what you wrote. Last week I got in touch with a lover from my past - he broke my heart 26 years ago! He lives far from me, so we've been emailing, texting, and sharing photos. Been in contact just about every day for a week now. He is turning out to be a fun friend to have in my life, but he is stuck in a very unhappy marriage. And there are moments when he reveals how sad and lonely he really is, but then when I ask him to elaborate or answer a question that his comment brought up, he covers it over with a "just kidding" or "no, I meant ___" kind of response. It makes me either want to shake him or save him -- or leave him alone altogether, because it's too painful for me to see such a vibrant, creative being settling for an unsatisfying life.
