Dear Roe,

I have recently broken up with my girlfriend after being together for 2½ years. We had had a very difficult, but loving relationship, and now that I am out of it, I feel a constant sense of guilt and loneliness. She started dating again very quickly after our breakup, and has reconnected with her old friends and renewed her social life (something which I had always encouraged her to do during our relationship).
