years ago and over the past year or two she has lost any romantic
feelings for me whatsoever.
I am feeling a bit numb. There is a twinge of hurt festering
inside. There is also some relief. I had feared this would blow up in a
bad way where I would have to be afraid of what she might do and the
stress that would follow. When our lease expires we may still live
together in a new place but we would have separate rooms. There are 5-6
months before any decisions have to be made on that front.
I am now, for the first time in 12+ years, single.
