Ladies, you are all speaking to my soul. I know all you say to be true. Despite all his BS, I feel deeply he is a special person but he has to deal with his issues before he could ever be man enough to have another chance. It's sad to me for someone who has so much to offer to miss out on something great right in front of him. I know in the end that it's so much more his loss but I do still feel that connection. It's a process. Him continuing to reach out doesn't help. I've already started to meet new people but I'm just not there yet to get too excited about anyone else yet.
