This was me
. That problem was resolved by him killing himself in our flat. While i was there. Sleeping. Now I have different problems, mainly what the heck do I tell people?

After a completely crazy few weeks, I'm about to go back to work and to lead a normal life again. My question is, when/how do I tell people what happened? At work, most people just know that it was sudden. I don't want to lie about it because I'd have to make stuff up about heart attacks or something then would probably get bored and just blurt it out. Also, I don't want it to look weird that I'm not really grieving the loss of my beloved companion; I'm fucking pissed at this asshole who did this to me, his family, and friends. I've been mentally divested of the relationship for a while (the papers were going to be served that week), but if work people don't know the whole story, it's going to look horrible if I start dating immediately or are just not very sad.
Speaking of dating, my initial thread contained an inaccurate self criticism that people interpreted as me being hideous and morbidly obese. (I'm 6 feet tall, 145 lbs.) One of my reactions to this has been that all I want to do are physical things (run, get spa treatments, and fuck). How can I tell any guy about this? Won't they run screaming in the opposite direction? Again, I don't want to pretend I just got divorced.
