Dear Roe,

I have just broken up my relationship and I am devastated. My marriage ended a number of years ago and I thought I would never find love again. Just when I least expected I met an incredible man, one of the most beautiful men I have ever known. Our friendship blossomed into a beautiful relationship. He understood me better than anyone, he was gentle, supportive and so kind. After a couple of weeks of knowing him, I felt like we had been talking for years. I didn’t think love like this existed and had never been happier.
