Ugh. Dating.

Coming up on two years in November. I just started to think I might want to try dating. I'm just so lonely and sad. Not what I expected for myself at 37 years old. I can't imagine anything ever being like what I had again but I can't go another day with this gaping hole in my heart. I went on a couple dates with someone and its all so confusing. I compare everything to what I lost. Has anyone started dating after their loss? Does it get any easier? Is it worth the hassle? So many mixed emotions…See More

Thank you. I feel I bad for Tom because I know Jimmy's death destroyed him, he has no family and now he's battling cancer himself. I feel guilty for upsetting him with the picture and have been worried how it's affecting him. But he ripped out my heart by both what he tried to do and his horrible words. I want to support him because Jimmy wouldn't want him alone, but now that trust is gone, I don't know if I can. Thank you for understanding.
