Good discussion. I'm struck by how randon it is, the timing of people that come into our lives with whom we find mutual attraction and availability. My STBX has great traits as well, but it is hard to tell yet how my new BF compares with him -- not sure I would want to try comparing, but I just know I really like the way my new BF is seeing who I am from a fresh perspective, free of all the baggage and judgement my Ex brings to his view of me and our relationship. I like this feeling of a fresh beginning, but hope to avoid past mistakes. We'll see where this goes, and I am taking it slowly but having romantic attention form this new and outstanding man has dome wonders for my recovery from the loss of my marriage -- just feels good to affirm there is joyful life and plenty of options to be found after divorce, and it is not the end of the road for me. That's progress from feeling like my life was over and I would never feel happy again. Feeling greatful and more optimistic today!
