So, I made it public. Grateful to be in Ravishly magazine warning about the dark side of loneliness: https://ravishly.com/recognize-emotional-abuse.

My big recurring theme, I never thought loneliness could make me so crazy. (I’ve since moved on, reflected and even met someone kind and amazing. (Thanksgiving with his mom—-oy!).

Amazing article, blog. (I'm using a laptop with small keys and I keep hitting the wrong ones) 

Sometimes I will read a blog that "Wakes me up" and yours did that.

I thought of my own choices the past year. Yes, I have been in some relationships the past year to medicate my pain and loneliness. I don't drink, use drugs, so I guess finding a person to ease my agony is similar. From a man, or myself, it's not about missing sex! It's hearing her breathe next to me at night, watching her sleep, listening to her sing in the shower! That is what I miss the most! I miss sharing my thoughts, dreams, goals with her. I want that back!!!

Grief is a long walk through Dante's inferno. I am gradually making my way through the muck. 

Thank you for your courage to share this with us-I am honored.

Nice article, and yes you deserve someone who fits you emotionally and isn't abusive.  Everyone does.  Just be careful out there in the pool, there are sharks out there as well.
