    Last week my partner of 14 years told me he doesn’t feel the same about me anymore and he’s met someone else. He said he’s experiencing something called limerence, which causes infatuation and obsession with someone, and as far as I know if just a form of love.

    They became penpals in March and have since become extremely close (his words). He hid this from me for months and I just thought he was depressed. She lives in America and is coming over in a few weeks to see if they feel the same in person. It is tearing me apart and I’m trying to get head around this.

    We have separated and I’ve been at my Mum’s for the last week and just come home today, he is making arrangements to stay elsewhere now.

    I am absolutely devastated to say the least. We have a beautiful 2 year old boy who is keeping me sane.

    Just wondering if anyone has been through similar?

    I’ve not heard of it by that name but I have experience of that with my now ex husband. It was usually one woman after the other.
