Don't be sorry. Anybody would be feeling sad going through the stuff that you are dealing with.
You have nothing to prove to anybody. Ultimately relationships end or change all the time. No matter how any of us structure our relationships, going through change is going to happen. Sometimes the change is good but other times it's not wanted and is hard to deal with.
Poly works, swinging works, monogamy works, having no romantic relationships at all works. They all work. For periods of time. For different people. At different stages in life.
But none of them can stop change, prevent loss or stop us from feeling lonely and sad.
I hope that the grief starts to life for you soon. I find that it takes a few months for me usually before I start to feel better again.
