My son’s ex girlfriend sends me heart-rending messages since their relationship ended

DEAR DEIDRE: MY son’s ex girlfriend sends me heart-rending messages since their relationship ended. It has brought back terrible memories of my divorce, when my husband left me for someone else. 

I am a 55-year-old woman. My son is 32 and his girlfriend is 49 with two grown-up daughters.

My son lives with me and is a very hard worker. He’s been on and off with his girlfriend for five years.

But he couldn’t seem to commit to her. I can’t help but feel for her.

He’d work weeks on end without seeing her and then she found out he was messaging other girls.

She broke it off and he is heartbroken, but also doesn’t want to get back with her.

DEIDRE SAYS: The pain of our kids’ relationships breaking up is one of the surprises as they grow up – especially as it’s tapped into the terrible time when you divorced.

But it’s not your life, it’s your son’s. Best to gently stop contact with her.

She will recover sooner, and be more able to move on, and so will you.

You’ll all be happier in the long run.
