I've frequently stated that part of what makes it hard to proceed after a relationship ends is obsessing over the details and analysing so that you end up finding more things to try to blame yourself for and wish you could have done differently. I am all for a little introspection if the idea would be to move forward and use whatever you find to empower yourself to make better choices that lead to your happiness.

You might go there believing that things could be different because it's the internet and also you've pinned your hopes on it, but as we all discover at some point, if we do not address the things that trouble us, we can proceed from relationship to relationship, date to date, pubs to nightclubs to the local hobby cub to online dating, but those difficulties will still follow us if they remain unresolved.

Error number one was to join a dating site right out of a seventeen year union and absolutely green round the gills. I was drawn right in to a relationship which ended in marriage after eighteen months and fast decended into verbal and emotinal mistreatment. After two profoundly sad years of union and being stuck because I had become involved fiscally I found passwords written on a sheet of paper and logged onto his msn account to find a hoard of prostitutes on his friends list. Deeper probing revealed dating websites and connections going back to when we first met. I played him at his own game, contacted one of the women who told me all, confronted him and told him it was over. Then I found out about his little custom with his webcam (urgh), wasn't hard to set up a bogus account, hook him in and view with revolt what followed.

What was the most hilarious regarding the second: while this man was, in reality, younger than me, his unhealthy food and smoking lifestyle, in tandem with his seriously enormous bowel, made him look older and in 'way worse condition than me!
