I realize that being alone is better than being with the abusing, lying, manipulating, conniving jerk....but I get remorseful that I wasted so much time on him when I could have been out there happy and finding a non-narc.
I don't get sad about being alone but I do fear it. Who wants to grow ole alone without companionship?
Plus, I have two children 10 and 13 and I often think that's a lot of baggage for a "normal, nice" man to take on.
Just sharing a fear of mine.....
