Older man

I have fallen for an older man at work who has the most beautiful voice and impeccable manners, he makes me feel young and happy again!Sadly nothing will ever come of it because he is too old for me(twenty five years older than me)and I am in a long term relationship which I feel would be impossible to leave for various reasons.
I feel that life can feel incredibly sad and lonely at times.I think of him often and he always makes me smile and right now it all feels unbearable.I guess the only way to get over him is to avoid seeing him,which I am able to do.I just feel so down about it.
Anyone else really connected with someone but was unable to be with that person?How did you cope?

"I am in a long term relationship which I feel would be impossible to leave for various reasons."
OP, you would not be looking at this man if you were happy in your relationship. Put this man to one side, it is a fantasy you are using to soften the harshness of your reality. But either fixing or ending the relationship you are in would soften your reality far more.
