    ...when you are "forced" to quit job after 4 years officially for something better, secretly to avoid seeing exactly the one person you care the most in your life. Well done, good job! Okay, now what... I can't seem to remember what is the reason to get up in the morning anymore.

    I just don't know anymore

    Wife of 17 years left me (35M) last summer. Dating apps are soul crushing someimes; I've had no luck. I have no idea what to do with myself.

    That sounds really rough. It's a cliché but time really does help heal and sort things out, you just have to move through it. Small world though, I work near Nisky at the aquarium in Schenectady, if you want some tickets PM me, always happy to hook up a fellow ETSer.

    Anything keeping you tied to where you're currently living? I'd recommend a change of scenery if possible.

    A 2 year old and a 5 year old. I love my kids more than anything, but if we hadn't had them I'd be gone. . .

    I'm so sorry. And yeah, a lot of my single friends have mentioned that dating apps can be a trash experience.

    This seems to be an obvious question, but for some folks it's less so: have you told friends/family/coworkers that you are interested in getting back into dating and ask them to help you out? Something as simple as "hey, if you know anybody who is single that would be open to dinner or coffee, can you help me get connected?" I know blind dates are somewhat intimidating and sometimes our social circles don't know us as well as we would think, but if you think about it dates from apps are basically blind dates too.

    Anyway, I know that seems obvious and you've probably already done that but I actually struggled to ask people I knew for dating help and I'm glad I finally bit the bullet and did it.

    To continue with my pity-party I have become super introverted following an unusual amount of loss including, but not limited to, two of my closest friends (practically brothers) committing suicide and my mom dying suddenly from terminal cancer... I am clinically depressed and was diagnosed with PTSD. I don't really have any friends anymore and my remaining family is not very close. My depression is what led to my wife leaving me. . .

    It's not a pity party my guy, you are grieving and have a heavy load to carry. I'm so very sorry.

    Jesus Christ everything about everything is so good right now. February of this year was the darkest year of my life, and to bounce back to this time period being the most fulfilling in every single way (emotionally, mentally, sexually) is absolutely incredible. I've never been so happy in my life and it absolutely terrifies me, I didn't know it was possible to be this happy and it feels way too good to be true.
