I feel like this might stem from the fact that I grew up taking care of myself as my parents were very hands off and pretty bad with emotional support.
Anyone else been in similar situations and gotten over it? I (F27) met a guy (28) online and while we were online everything was perfect, so sweet and understanding and convo flowed easily.
I received the message below from Mike, a 53 year old guy who has been both widowed and divorced, and who has some words of wisdom for men over 50.

It's kind of like hanging out with your platonic female divorced friend and hearing her perspective on your divorce and your love life issues. I'm heading into the permanent separation stage with the outcome being divorce. However, she does not want to proceed until my divorce is finalized. Should I forget about her or text her from time to time?I'm not sure whether she had expected it but she was really nice about it even though she did not want to meet personally, she even apologised and encouraged me to continue what I was doing.After that we had a few more conversations and said good bye.
