I replied in your other thread.
I am HD, ex is LD although this was not how he was at the start of our relationship.
I am a communicator, he isn't.
I am touchy feely, he isn't.
I loved him, he loved me but in the end (17 yrs later) I ended the marriage. It was not about sex, it was about the lack of intimacy and connection. He told me he loved me but one day it dawned on me that if he truly loved me he would have fixed the problems.
He knew what I needed to be happier and to feel connected yet he chose to ignore my needs.
I would do it again without hesitation. It was the most painful thing I have done but coming out the other side has been amazing. I had a huge amount of self realisation to go through, lots of reading and thinking and taking responsibility for my own part in it all.
It is almost 3 years post separation, I am deeply in love with a wonderful man. A new relationship was of no importance to me at the start of this journey, my goal was to be whole and happy but then I accidentally met him and we are a fantastic match.
All the best to you, keep chatting and build up a support network, you will need it.
