I been dating this guy who lost his wife to a weird bacteria. He says he can't get any closer because he does not want to go through the pain of losing somebody close again. Not sure how to handle this. Thanks.
He's going to have to do some serious therapy in order to get past this. Until that time he won't be truly available for you or anyone else. Give him some space and time, and maybe it will work out. If not, move on.
