You see, I did get involved with someone before the final decree (but after separation), and it has been the basis for accusations of adultery against me ever since. What I noticed is that I was giving myself to him, but I wasn’t following my heart.
If he directs me to a dating site, then I will follow. Perhaps he will direct you to simply as he has directed me. ” Instead, we should be looking for the wise decision. We became close, and I really thought something would eventually come of it.
