Well Hawthorn just told me unequivocally that he wants to be single and there’s no hope of us working it out.  His reasons are that being in a relationship “does something to him” and he just can’t treat me “the same” if we’re in a relationship.  He stated that he is not going to see his previous therapist, as he’s sure a therapist would also tell him that he needs to be single.

I guess I’ll spend this week starting to formulate a plan about where I am going to live (though he has ‘generously’ said I can stay here through August when the lease is up).  Fortunately I  had a therapy appointment tomorrow anyway.
