I am 65 and my partner, who I have lived with for 3 years, is 67. A week ago he told me that he needed space so that he can figure out if he would be happier living alone. He went on to say that I have done nothing wrong and listed many positive traits he sees in me. He said that he does love me. He has done this in past relationships. He says that he is the problem and needs to figure this out. He lacks empathy when I am tearful. When I see him, it breaks my heart because I just whatnot hug him and ask why we can’t fix this. So, on Sunday I asked him to go somewhere away from me to figure it out And he did.
I was widowed before I met him and had a very tough grieving period. I can’t stand another heartbreak.
if we break up, and I am fairly confident it is going that way, my whole life will be turned upside down...again. I live in his house, and have put my heart into making it our home.
I know what I am looking for from this group. I just feel so confused.
