Re: Separated wife only wants to be friends
You need to date, and get back your life. You have been manipulated and I cannot help but think that the minute you are in a new relationship, suddenly her attitude will change. This, I have seen before. For some reason, be it punishment or screwed up personality, she is torturing you. A new relationship will do wonders for you, and frankly her reasons for ending the marriage hold very little water. I may be talking out my a## here, but she has been used to you as a dad and bank, suddenly she will have to compete. Suddenly there is someone younger and prettier. Suddenly you stop coming when she calls. Essentially, you have been her spouse when she wants without all that sex and cohabitation. This has sent many a woman without crystal clear reasons for divorce either back to the ex, or into therapy. One of my wife's girlfriends admitted that she sought the divorce to punish him for a number of perceived slights. She never considered that he'd go out and find someone new. She thought that they were tethered together. He as a whole new life, with his kids and without her. He is happy, her, bitter and angry with herself and anyone that she felt encouraged her to split.
