This sounds like a letter from the love lorn but nevertheless I'd like to hear your reaction.
I wrote you last year when my wife decided she had to move back to her home in Arkansas. She told me early in our relationship, about 3 years ago, that she had major depression. I think that she had decided to quit her antidepressant by then, thinking that she could get out of her self described life of being secluded for 2-3 weeks at a time. Our relationship included good sex and we were very happy. She then started wanting to spend more time in Arkansas, however I think she tried very hard to be happy with me. She complained that she just didn't fit in here in Oklahoma. We never fought, but neither did
we ever really discuss her feelings. She kept saying that there were things going on inside her but she would not discuss them.
We divorced, then started dating again for about 4-5 months, then her son demanded that she quit seeing me or it would be the end of the son/mother relationship.
I have communnicated with her ever since, by card, letter, e-mail, and telephone. She seems to enjoy me to that point, but does not return the effort, which has always been her personality.
I love this woman very much, but am I expecting a miracle thinking she can ever be a mate that can give love, not sex.
I have read that people with depression need a good relationship but they throw out signs to their mate that they don't.
I currently date, and am sexually involved, with a wonderful woman. From my mental standpoint, is it useless to stay involved with my Arkansas ex-wife.
