Want To End A RelationshipFirst, my thanks to all on this forum who helped with their advice on separating from a sexless marriage last year.
That has been accomplished and I`ve been on my own for 18 months now.
Problem is, I`ve become involved with a woman who while very nice, desiring of sex and with whom I share a lot in common, is essentially broke and always will be.
I don`t want to make this about money, it sounds trite. But, how can a relationship have a future when one party never has any money, just went bankrupt, doesn`t have a steady job, and by her own admission cannot handle money at all. She`s in her 50`s and has been forced to move back in with her aging parents.
I`m now retired and want to pursue more travel and such. She`s not in a position to accompany me unless I feel like footing the entire cost, which doesn`t seem fair.
So, my question is, how do I tell her in the kindest way possible that this relationship has no future. I hate hurting people and am looking for the least painful exit for her sake.
