    Ugh. I broke it off with my wife last month, and it's been rough. I was OK until this monday when she told me she would like to see my casually once in a while when I move down to Orlando. This started a whole flood of doubt, regret and led to depression. Although I am thrilled with the idea of hopefully working things out over time as separate people, I don't like the whole uncertainty of it all. I still love and care for her, but I know we both need to grow as individuals. I'm honestly scared that she's going to find somebody while I'm going to be alone and yearning for the good things we had together. Wow. That was kind of theraputic.

    If I am not prying, why did you break up?

    She is very intense when it comes to her emotions. Every little thing that goes wrong seems like the end of the world to her. I just couldn't handle it after a while and had to make a decision. She would also fly off the handle if I upset her - I now understand some of her anger/frustration towards me, but some of it was uncalled for. This led to me shutting down and not talking about my feelings because I didn't want to get yelled at... And here we are...

    I don't know if this is just me missing her "presence" or if it's just normal to go through this during a breakup... This is my (being totally honest w/ strangers - weird) first and ONLY relationship and first breakup. Boy I went all out the first time around :hs:
