@MariaW:  awww muffin, i was single when I was 30 and 31. But, you are a lovely lady, I know. and when your least expecting it, someone will walk into your life & flip it on it’s head. and remember, anytime is the right time for Mr Right. Women can be strong on thier own, and we need no man to make us whole! they should only enhance whats there. ^-^

It sounds like you are glad that you walked but still in contact with your SO, its okay to still feel things about your x after all you cant just shut off your emotions after a breakup. But still being in frequent contact with the other person can be painful and keep you from moving on. Mr Right might be just around the corner! Get out there and strut your stuff aka go buy a smokin pair of shoes 😉

Lots of love and hugs!

It takes at least 6 months of no contact to get over a breakup!  I know it doesn’t seem like it, but it really does get better with time, no joke!  I was 32 during my last breakup, and I experienced all the things you have. The guy definitely didn’t want marriage or kids, and I was so resentful that I wasted my remaining fertile years with him. I’m 34 now and getting married in three weeks:-)


(to a different, much better man!)


Plenty of time for kids, plenty of time to find the right guy, plenty plenty plenty.  But you gotta heal first, so you’re doing everything that you need to right now by just getting through that.  Believe me, once you find the right guy, it won’t take very long at all.

By the way, I really like the book- It’s called a breakup because it’s broken!  It’s super empowering.

Hey! I haven’t looked at the waiting boards in a LONG TIME. I am so glad you walked MariaW, you are so brave, but you know in your heart you did the right thing. If he wanted to be with you, he would be coming hell or high water, you know? Keep at it! You will find the person that deserves you!!

@MariaW:  Aww, I’m sorry you’re feeling so bad! I was in my early 30s when I left my (now ex) husband. And I still struggle with the ‘omg am I too old to have kids?’ feeling even now, at 33, with current FI. I’ll gladly lend you an ear (eyes?) if you need or want someone to vent to/commiserate with. *Hugs*

It’s nice to see you around here still. I was wondering how you’ve been. Ya know I’ve gone through the same emotions since I walked. I worry a lot about fertility. It sucks to realize you’re in a stage of life where you thought you would be settled down by now. The dating game is rough! I had a lot of icky dates so far, then I actually took the last resort route and signed up for eharmony.

My 2nd date from that site I met an amazing guy. Happily dating 2 months now 🙂

I still have the occasional friendly chat with my ex, he still tries to reconcile with me, saying I was the best. Yet he could never put a ring on it? So lately I’ve cut it back since Mr new guy came in the picture. It kinda reminds me what my bff says. To get over the old guy you have to get under a new one lol

I’m sure you’ll find your match soon, your eggs will be fine 🙂

@MariaW:  It’s okay if you’re not ready to put yourself out there. That’s normal. Everyone needs time to get over a break up.

Do you have to talk to your ex? I feel like things  might be easier if you cut him out for a bit so you could figure your emotions out and move on some. You can go back to being friends in 6-12 months.

You’re not too old for kids! Don’t say that! Plenty of women have normal kids between the ages of 35 to 40, and who knows maybe you’ll meet Mr. Right in time to pop one out before the age of 35, depending on when you feel ready to date and when you meet the person for you. 😉

@NickiBee:  I’ve been lurking around these boards for a while, so I am familiar with your story. I assumed you and your ex had gotten back together, but man are you strong to have not taken him back! Congrats on finding someone you think is special. You deserve it! 🙂
