I've read some of MrPack's thread and it's definitely been helpful. Still have a good bit to work through on it, but it's been great to chart his and others' journeys on here and see the light at the end of the road.

I am still living with my STBXW and hoping this is the lowest part of all this because I cannot see me going much lower.

Good luck with the future and keep us in the loop on the online dating, I have not been on a date with anyone other than my STBXW for over 12 years so not even sure how to date anymore.
I can completely and totally empathize with this. I was with my STBXW for 11 years, and she was all I ever wanted or thought of in a romantic way. My fear is that when I do meet someone I really click with I will not have the skills to actually make a move.

My new roommates threw me a welcome dinner tonight and while the food was great and overall it was a good time, it made me realize just how much my life has changed in the span of 7 months. As I sit here writing this, for the first time in a long time I have that anxious feeling that is very reminiscent of what I felt right after she left. I still really miss her and I think being around a bunch of other people was jarring and reminded me of all that went up in smoke.

Sigh, I really thought I was done having bad nights but I guess at least a few more are in store for me. There's been a ton of change for me these past few weeks so it's probably just now catching up with me.
