Two years ago I had four relationships. Then my wife died. I was in a severe state of depression for a little over a year. I ended the remaining three relationships. I have been single for the past two years. I am currently using this time to work on me.

This is not the end of the world. Take some time to recover from your divorce. One should always take some time after a loss. Decisions made during grief are almost always bad ones. I've made my share of those bad decisions.

Use this time to get some priorities straight. Being "not single" should not be a priority. I'm not out beating the bushes for a mate or three. If I find someone(s), I will. If not? Then I have to be happy with myself.

Remember, it's always darkest before the dawn.

Thanks for sharing, Vinsanity0.

I agree it must have been hard. I would have never guessed you are currently single since your signature shows you're into an LDR.

I hope you have the right people to support you at the moment, and if not, you now know you're not alone being in this situation!

This forum is not a suicide hotline. The members are not crisis counsellors and should not be asked to provide advice as if they are. You've been given links to professional resources. Use them.

If you want to read other's stories, you are free to do so; you can even start threads with specific questions. You don't need to make a post that basically boils down to "if you don't give me what I want I'll kill myself". It's no more appropriate to do that than it would be to say " if you don't give me what I want I'll kill my neighbour".
