Comment on A Break-Up Vs. A Bad Start – They Didn’t Break-Up With You (NOT Your Ex) by Holis.
I met my ex 1.5 years ago when he was finalizing his divorce. This was my first time dating someone who was still married. Things were great until after the divorce finalized. He became distant and sad most of the time. I tried to be supportive but after a while I became resentful and ended it. We recently reconnected after a year of no contact. He says he felt overwhelmed and scared of the new life ahead of him and lost sight of us. I told him I want to take things slow but every now and then, I keep asking myself if it was us or if it was the divorce. We were together for only 6 months.
