I’ve mulled this one over for a long time. What will I do when she goes on a date. Believe it or not, I still have hopes that she will fall back in love with me, run home, and ask for absolution!
Honestly, I just don’t know what I am going to think when that time happens. I’m trying to prepare myself for that eventuality, because, unfortunately for me, it will happen. She wanted the divorce, and she wanted to start a new life, and therefore it stands to reason that she will be dating, and probably soon.
For all I know, she’s already been on a date, but since I am not contacting her (other than immediate family business) I honestly don’t know.
My son also realized that she will date, and he hates it. He feels that his mom should be with his dad, and not with some strange man. I’ve tried to tell him that people move on, and he has to accept that. For that matter, so do I.
So what’s the bottom line? Honestly, I don’t know. It is something that I will have to deal with, and I’m still not sure how I will react. I hope that I can be supportive, and understand that its part of the circle, but I also know that another little part of me will die when she goes on that first date.
