    Hi, my (ex) partner told me today that our wedding in November is off and it’s all over. Devastated doesn’t even come close. We had a bit of a rocky time 2 years ago which she now says she can’t get over.

    We have a 6 year old boy and I can’t be without him for a day let alone a few days. I know there’ll be no issues with seeing him but it’s killing me along with  the fact that I still love my partner madly.

    I’m a 48 year old man and at the moment I feel like a snotty 15 year old who’s been dumped by his first girlfriend.

    I have no friends apart from work colleagues, all my friends moved out of London years ago and we don’t really see each other these days. Just the odd text etc.

    I <b>never</b> thought I’d feel this alone.

    Hi Chris.

    Welcome to the forum.

    It’s understandable that you devastated, as you’ve only just been told it’s very early days, maybe your partner will have a change of heart but if not in time you can and will get through this. You are blessed with having a son who will also find this difficult as well but it’s great that there will be no issues with seeing him so while it’s terrible what’s happened it could be worse even though it doesn’t feel like it atm.

    Hang in there mate, things will be ok in the end.
