Sux Dave, but there's always another one. Just wasn't meant to be. Nothing good lasts forever.

I'm very sorry to hear you're sad Dave, but, hear me now and believe me later...time heals the pain. Please, give yourself the time.

Thanks Sam and JV, we have all tasted heart break at one time but one can never get used to the way it feels at first.
This ain't my first rodeo, I know the risks of falling for someone I met at a bar. I'm no saint but I have always been faithful to the woman I am with.
When a girl stays out all night it's a safe bet she ain't baking cookies at grandma's house.

To add insult to injury my xgirlfriend told me today my beloved Sophia (dog) is in very poor health and things are looking pretty bad.
Boy I tell ya, when it comes down it comes down hard.

Visited my folks today after Karen pulled her all-nighter just to talk with someone that cares and my mom didn't know who I was.
Tell you what, I'm holding my head up and going to plow straight into this cluster-f**k called life and take whatever it throws at me.

This pic was taken several years ago and is hard to look at right now.

Geez. what else can go wrong. My mom had Alzheimer's and toward the end didn't know who I was either. Some things you can fix, some you can't.

How about focusing on Sophia to see if you can help her?

It's truly amazing how whether I was 16, or 46, the breakups have always hurt just as much. You'd think it would get easier after the 20th one, but nope! I've learned my partial healing time is about 3 months. But, losing my dog hurt more than any one of the women. Lots more fond memories of my dog, which I can't even remember every girl's name lol.

Final note: I see the future and it's wide open.
Didn't say I can predict it, just saying I won't allow myself to be hurt again...at least with this girl.

At this point in life, broke, sad, alone and gas in the horse.....open the candy jar I'm going in to the elbow.

Gonna take a big broom to run me out.

Edit: I spent over 30 mins last night explaining how we are giving it another go.
I was using a phone so it took a long time and then lost the whole thing.

women are like buses Dave, they'll be another one along in 12 minutes, best thing to do when you pick one up is stick by the four F rule, that worked well for me after my divorce in 95, when you get my age, 70 plus, then start thinking about a serious relationship!

I'll come back when I am on my computer and tell the latest.
Typing on this phone is tedious and annoying.

Pete I like your advice, that be why I am early 50's and never been married but was with my last one for about 20 years so I know what the married life is about, just minus the paper.

Probably shouldn't worry about a keeper for awhile. From my experience the independent one's are the flighty one's, they can get by without you and if they look good finding another guy is easy. Some people can't stand to be alone.

Sammy's right Dave. Hopefully, you can fix broke and sad fast, but I would put off working on the alone part for a while. It's a delicate time for you right now. Easier said than done, I know. Last thing needed is a rebound thing going on.
*Edit*...Oh, did I just re-read that you decided to try again, with her?

Mr. Viking,

Oh boy, when they hoist the red flag, run like hell! Good job. A life of pain is no life at all.

Hang in there.

Best regards,

Bonz

Karen and I are hanging in there but stress levels are high.
Finances are extremely bad, not sure what we are going to do.
I may have to sell some of my treasured posessions like one of my guitars, some knives or even my Fender guitar amp (pics under "Blues Deluxe" thread.

On top of all this my beloved Sophia is gone.
My x-girlfriend had her cremated and ashes in a beautiful wood box, possibly rose wood?

As I said before I will find a way, baby needs a new pair of shoes 8)

Thank you guys for the kind words and spiritual support.
Means a lot to me.
