I am feeling so alone right now. I recently split with my girlfriend of 15 years because we have nothing in common apart from our 9 year old son. For years now we have been like housemates who barely tolerate each other. I met some friends that I had known online for a while last October and they made me realise I have friends who have a lot in common with me and that are me realise how little I had on common with my girlfriend. One of my friends became very close after I confided in her that relationship was over. This friend is married with 2 kids but she seemed so unhappy with her marriage. We spend hours each day messaging each other and she sitter she was thinking what life with me would be like. Now she has become distant and won't admit whether she has had second thoughts or if she is just scared of ending her marriage (something she has admitted in the past). Now I have been left hanging with no way of knowing where my life is headed and I feel like ending my life to stop the pain of being alone.
