Break up after 1 year of dating a great women - Need Help and Advice
A little back history, I was married for 16 years before my wife died 3 years ago. A year after her passing I decided to see what it was like to start dating again. in March of 2017 I meet this incredible women on Match.com. We it hit off immediately, We had everything in common, at least I thought, Her husband had passed way 3 years ago, She had a daughter in high school, I had a son in high school. We saw each other constantly 2-3 times a week, texted each other good morning and good night, and talked on the phone once a day. We went on mini vacations to together through out the year, our kids met and I met her entire family. We spent Holidays together, Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years. The shortly after the new year everything seemed a little different. Her best friend who had supported my girlfriend through her husbands passing quit her job, the same place that my girl friend worked at. A week later my girlfriend decided to quit because she didn't enjoy working at the location without her friend. My girlfriend got another job at the same organization as her friend but differ location. She still was very unhappy even with the new position, A couple of weeks later her friend said there was an opening at the same location and that my girlfriend should request a transfer so they could work together. My girlfriend but in the transfer and was happy to be working with her friend. Around this same time, this same friend was also getting a divorce from her husband which they had been together for 16-20 years. My girl friend could see how devastated her friend was; no eating, sleeping and worried. During this whole time my girlfriend and I continued to see each other several times a week, had fun and still never fought about anything. We had plans for our 1 year anniversary and Easter with her family. On the 2nd weekend of March 2018, my girlfriend and I went out of town for the day, It seems like she had fun, eating lunch, and just enjoying something new. We got back mid afternoon-and I would her I would talk to her that evening as always. I received a text a few hours later saying that she was going to go out with her friend for drinks and would talk with me in the morning. She still texted " I Love you" and I did the same. The next morning I received the worst text I could imagine... "Can we talk" I know something wasn't right. We meet at Starbucks and she said that she has had a good time with me this year, has grown in our relationship and feels that she needs to grow individually and feels that our relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend has come to an end. She says its not another man, and she doesn't want to date anyone. Over the past month I can't sleep, really eat and feel like I've lost my soulmate for the 2nd time in 5 years. I tried calling and she has blocked my calls and text. I feel so lost and need guidance.
