Relapse
Hi all! I was suddenly divorced about six months ago after my wife met someone else. It was a great shock for me. Slowly but surely I felt better because I saw other people and broke all contact with my ex. I started enjoying my life again as a single man, dated a few girls etc. Now, six months down the line I started missing her like crazy, I can't sleep at night and just wanna be with her and nobody else. What can I do to get over this sudden relapse? Any advice will be welcome.

Dear Mango, Randy's right. After some distance in time, we tend to look back through ose-coloured spectacles, remembering the happy parts of a failed relationship, and forgetting the unhappiness and why it broke up. So don't just reminisce about the Good Old Days --- remember equally the Bad Old Days, congratulate yourself on having made a good decision --- and continue with the rest of your deservedly happier life.
