Hi, Dr. Love.I find your answers so compassionate that I thought I’d ask you for some wisdom about a relationship problem I’m having. I am a 35-yr-old with a lot going for her. I’ve been divorced for a year and don’t have a problem getting dates. Unfortunately, I am sterile (premature ovarian failure) and pregnancy is out of the question, barring some sort of miracle, although I’d love to adopt.I’ve hesitated to get involved with anyone. Recently, I thought I’d met the perfect guy: fun, charming, successful, handsome, etc. He just got divorced. Also, he happened to be adopted, and I thought maybe he’d be more open to the idea of adoption as a result. Well, for one reason or another, I got a period around the time we started dating. He said he was willing to throw caution to the wind because we hoped that I might be able to conceive, so I went off my HRT and we tried.What was I thinking? He said he was sure I was the right woman for him and that we were destined to be together. He also reassured me he’d be open to adoption. Well, I am usually a practical girl, but I saw this as maybe a possibility to get pregnant and let him tell me these things.But the period was just a fluke; I didn’t get another, and my hormones indicated menopause. When we found that out, he took a step back. Instead of talking about a family together, he was telling me we had to go back to casual dating. Although he cared for me, he wasn’t sure he could deal with not having a natural child of his own after all.Meanwhile, I was torn apart with grief; I had hoped so hard for a child that I did not even think about what would happen if it didn’t work out. I guess I didn’t want to jinx it.To make a long story short, we dated for a little while after that, but he would refer often to my infertility and say it was a problem. I also think his very recent divorce has a role in this, but I’m not sure. He was also recently contacted for the first time by some members of his birth family, so maybe that also lent a hand to the confusion.I am not sure what to do with this. I told him I was sterile on the third date, and he says that wasn’t soon enough. I am at a loss as to how to approach this in future relationships.
