Wine, chocolate, Gavin and Stacey....Must be bad!

Feeling rejected! Needed to ramble on to someone and I picked you!! Been separated from my husband for a year and a month. DDs are 9 and 7. It's been a tough year, but recently I feel like I've turned a corner and really found my confidence again! Ended up meeting this guy, just a few weeks back. I know it's not been long, but I REALLY liked him and he's REALLY fit! He treated me well in the short time we were together and I was so happy.

So....he dumped me! Well, said he needed some "space" so I knocked it on the head as can't be doing with being messed around. I've been hurt badly enough before. He hardly put up a massive fight for me! So, that's it....over. I know I'll be fine, but feeling really sorry for myself tonight. Why can't life be more simple?!!

Life is rarely simple. Wine chocolate and TV however make things better. Keep going and it'll come right at some point...

I'll have the wine and chocolate but not Gavin and Stacy.
I don't know what it is but Stacy's voice really grinds my gears and Nessa is such a arsehole self centred person.

I know its not real.

Give me Doc Martin or House or OITNB. smile

Op, in my head you sound like Stacey. <forgets point of thread>

I've heard of Doc Martin and House, but not Orangutan In The Next Bed; I don't know of that television series.

I think it's Oysters in Teriyaki No Bacon actually.

Orange is the new black.

It's a Netflix show and its brilliant.

Seen all of Orange is the new Black....loved it! I don't think I'm much like Stacey. I'm old for starters! Meeting him tomorrow to have...."closure!" Fed up, but I know I'll be ok. Just need to get tomorrow over and done with.

Hi Jezza, know how you feel. I broke up with my P 5 months ago tomorrow (see, still counting... :/!!). I sit on my own after dc have gone to bed & watch tv & drink wine. Then i often read MN & more & more often i think 'thank goodness i don't have all that man shit to worry about!'. Yes, i feel lonely, but I'm content with my life, i adore my kids & can't be doing with the stress of relationships at the moment. You are not alone, but life isn't that bad without a shit bloke in it!

That's a lovely message Shouldknowbetter. I defo wasn't ready for a relationship until recently, just couldn't bare thinking about the complications of it! But something seemed to click after a year's separation. I'm not really sure I'm ready now, but I did really like him and was willing to take a risk to be with him. It does get easier Shouldknow. I know now that whatever happens I will be ok because I have overcome so much already....that gives me confidence.
