Good morning and thank you so much for your message. I realize it's difficult to reach out. Please know I honor your courage.

My name is ***** ***** I am a psychotherapist in the Metro Boston area.

Oh dear, I am so sorry your relationship did not work. It sounds like she was looking for something she was not seeing in you. Obviously she has moved forward in dating others.

I'm pleased you are still friendly and I believe this will be incredibly helpful in possibly moving things to the next step. I would let her know you are responsible, "taking care of business" and managing your life in an adult-like way. I get the sense she needs to see this prior to considering a relationship in the future. I would also let her know you are working on yourself and would love for her to consider dating you again. Please tread gently and respectfully. It sounds like while the two of you had a nice relationship in the past, but she may be hesitant.

Her comments about moving to her area for yourself means she does not want you to move for her as she is not thinking of a relationship with you at this time. This does not mean this can't possibly change in the future.

Have I answered your question? Is there anything else I can do to assist you further? I want to ensure you are pleased with my service. I also gently request you provide a star rating for me. Of course, we can continue to talk after the rating is provided.

Please take good care of yourself and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Warm regards,

Therapist Leslie
