It will be a longer journey from just yesterday to today.
I truly believe a loved person can not be replaced so quickly or at all.


Everybody has really lovely stories, certainly worth an evening of smiles.
I believe you are quite right... along with, I believe that turning off the switch to a loving, caring, giving relationship should not be easy, and if it is... well!!!

So true. Getting the letter on Monday night gave me a wobble (as I don't want to interact with him for a while - everything's too raw), but I'm ok now, and I know the emotion of it all will be like a moving river. I went out last night to see a friend's show, and work is busy, so I am keeping busy thankfully.

I'd like some romance in December, I think, so I need to start going on some dates!

Re: Basel Love Stories - Inspire the Newly Single

Its nice to hear that there are second chances out there.
My wife of 14 years has just pulled the pin on the marriage ending grenade this April, and is now beginning to make the final move out. It's taken this long for complicated work reasons (We work in a boarding school)
I am still in that painful, gut wrenching period, when I cry myself to sleep most nights if I sleep at all, and reading how many of you have managed to move on is encouraging, but how do you get past that awful, pain riddled, phase I'm currently stuck in, to then move on, if indeed we can't work out a way to be together.
I did not see me as single 41 and stuck up a mountain with almost no female company coming.

Re: Basel Love Stories - Inspire the Newly Single

Why call it a second chance? A new relationship is a new chance, not a second one or a third one. It is never easy being alone again, especially after a long relationship, but the way I look at it, if you or the other person were so unhappy that a break-up seemed to be the best option, isn't it better that way? No one benefits from long-term unhappiness. I know I didn't and although leaving the comfort and safety of a long-term relationship was probably the hardest thing I have done in a long time, I am no longer sorry that I did. There is no easy way to get past the pain of losing someone - I found that crying, screaming and drinking copious amounts of gin worked miracles, but also throwing away old photographs, cleaning out the closet and rearranging the furniture helped. So does moving to a new flat where the other person has never been before and will never step in to, ever. I am 43 and you know what, it doesn't frighten me in the slightest to be on my own. Better this than being miserable.

I split up with my boyfriend yesterday. Hopeful stories of finding new love In Basel would be appreciated right now. I'm 30 and a lot of my friendship group is linked to him.


When my sister was about 18 and once again at the end of a "relationship" my mother told her "Darling, you have to kiss a lot of toads". She brought home a LOT of roadkill, but she did eventually find her prince. They've been married 30 years now.


I would say my mother's advice was sound, although I might add "Learn to differentiate Toads from Roadkill before you start kissing."
