Wow, thank you so much for sharing this interesting story. I’m so sorry that you’re still heartbroken. I had a similar experience when I fell for someone after I separated from my husband and I was much more upset about him dumping me than my marriage ending.
I think it has to do with the fact that I understood why my marriage was over but with this new guy, I didn’t understand why he wasn’t interested in me anymore.
Logic won over though. If I couldn’t get through a few weeks with this new guy then there was no chance of a long-term relationship. He just wasn’t right for me.
