Hi everyone. I am new to this forum but had a bit of a problem and was seeking advice. I was married for 10 years and have 3 small children with this man. 2 years ago I got Breast Cancer and my husband and I divorced. I was devastated because I thought that the cancer would finally make him care and love me the way I needed. Wrong. He has moved on and dates like crazy.
I am now single and battling cancer (alternatively), and raising my 3 children. My problem is this. I start dating men and they are very attentive and say that they will be supportive, stand by me etc, etc. Then, it just becomes too overwhelming I guess and they back off. Should I just not be in a relationship? I am asking too much to want companionship? I am only 36 and don't want to be single forever, but maybe my life is just not set up for me to meet a caring man. My friends tell me to just heal myself and then worry about a relationship. It sure can be lonely.
