Thank you for the lovely and thoughtful response, Stephanie! It’s tough out there at any age!

One of the theories I have for his sending the song aligns with your take. Again, I doubt I will ever know. But I’m at peace with that now. The time we did have together was very limited, but beautiful.

Regarding dating, I have made a conscious effort not to become bitter. The few times I have felt myself slipping, I pull out of dating entirely until I feel more like myself.

I read some of your pieces and you are very talented. I sort of share stories, but you write like a true writer!

Best wishes to you on your search!
