You are one strong woman and I stand by you putting yourself first. Lots of woman have a hard time doing that. You’ve done the right thing by pulling back until he understands your needs as you have of him. Good luck and I wish you well!

@UnhappilyInLove:  It may not feel like it at the moment but it sounds to me like you made the best decision for you. I’m sorry that you’re going through this pain but you deserve to be happy without having to jump through hoops to please others.

After a 15 year relationship, I left my first husband.  I gave myself 18 months to myself before I even considered going on a date, and guess what? I picked exactly the same kind of man.  Not cool.

Years of not dating (and I mean more than two) and now I’m with a man who adores me for exactly who I am, not who he wants me to be.  Yes, it is possible to fall madly in love after a long time but it’s uncomfortable at first because we’re not used to being celebrated for simply being who we are, 

Be kind to yourself and give yourself some time to just look after you.  If it’s meant to be, it will be,

Good luck! It sounds like you know what is important to you and that he’s not willing to compromise. Relationships shouldn’t be one-sided!
