Dear Polly,

I love your column. I read it all the time. It always feels like I can apply bits of what you say to my personal story. It’s reassuring in a way, because it means that we are all going through the same things.

I am now 36. My last relationship was six years ago. It lasted seven years, including two years long distance between France, where I was, and New York, where he had found a job. It was a very intense and passionate relationship that ended very suddenly when I finally found a job in NY to join him. I went anyway and had five incredible years. I grew a lot personally, made new friends, explored my artistic side. I am a scientist by profession and an artist at heart. I am drawing, dancing, and writing. I get inspired by live art performances, and museums feel like home. I truly enjoyed the New York city life. Most importantly, I became very successful in my work. I channeled the breakup energy/anger into my science.
