The secret diary of a single parent bloke
I can’t handle being in a relationship. My relationship with Jody has become strained, and I know that it’s all my fault- I never expected to fall so in love with somebody so quickly, and I just can’t cope. I think she’s having similar issues too, which is adding to my anxiety. I’m constantly worrying about whether she’ll leave me, what she’s doing, whether she’ll go back to her husband…
For the sake of my own sanity, I’ve ended the relationship. I feel desperately sad and lonely, but it was the right thing to do- for both of us. She didn’t seem surprised at my decision, I guess she thought that it should end too. I’ve shocked myself at how quickly after the end of my marriage I’d fallen for someone, and I think I may have loved Jody more than I ever loved Katrina. And now I might never see her again, and that feels unbearable.
I don’t know if I’ll ever feel this way about anybody again. I think she was the right person at the wrong time.
