    The caller with the girlfriend he met online, please get on with your life in the meantime, especially if she is not letting her Ex go. You seem to be a very caring guy, and it sounds like you really like her but if she’s not willing to stop communicating with her ex and try to concentrate on you two developing a relationship or at least getting to know each other better I suggest you go your way and let her go hers.

    Dr. Sherri you should start your own counseling network. Whats so amazing about you is how giving and loving you are to others . Your gift from the Lord is to counsel.

    To Sharon, how long it takes depends on your investment in him. It took me 4 years to stop thinking of someone I had contact with for 4 months. Is this guy just a player? Maybe he never intended on getting married? Non committal guys just keep everyone on a ‘friendship’ basis so he can come and go as he pleases. They will put everyone in the friend category to protect themselves. My thoughts would be to come and go just the same as he does. Maybe he got scared and feels hemmed in? If he feels you have had no life outside of him it may had scared him. Is this a possibility?

    Re: sloppy wife
    Check out great resource for mentally or physically challenged people who have difficulty managing house work. Very encouraging. Can start small and work increasingly difficulty levels. Some people simply do not know what to do or where to start.
