Wow ! thank you so much !! you have made me feel alot better about myself and you are absolutely right ! I will let him go and move on with my life and will try not to look back , right at this very moment my son is the most important and that's my focus from today onwards. Thanks for building my confidence level up coz it has gone up 1 notch.

You can't keep someone that doesn't want to be kept.

It is hard, but you just keep going day by day and move on without him.

So sorry to hear that. It must be really difficult especially if you are still in love with him. But let him go. It will not make for a good relationship to force him to stay, and will give your son a bad representation and role model for what a great loving relationship is suppose to look like. This guy will have a lot of resentment towards you if you try to make him stay. He will leave either way. Better to have it on good terms, since you have a child together, and you will always have to deal with one another.

He may leave, and realize how much he does love you. But in the meantime, you need to move on and not wait for him to come back. Good luck, and so sorry to hear about that.

Wow, well I'm sorry that you have to deal with this situation but this happens all of the time. Stay strong and hold yourself together. First of all, as much as you may want to; you CANNOT make someone be with you. And you SHOULD NOT want to be with someone who doesn't love you. I know its not that easy but you have to let that man go. Trying to keep him with you will only make matters worse and plus, that's not healthy for your son. If he wants to go, you have to love him from a distance and let him go.



There is an age difference but that means nothing. You can still move on and maybe one day he will see that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. But don't wait for him. Move forward, love yourself, and stay strong even when you feel the weakest.
