I'm not sure how to handle co-workers, old friends, neighbors ...etc. I was married for 20 years and have known many of my co-workers for that long. Only a few at work know I am recently divorced. I have had people mention or ask me questions about my H, but I somehow change the subject or answer without really answering. They will be shocked that I left my marriage, and more so when they find out I'm now with a woman. I don't advertise my personal life especially since I am "the boss". What makes it more difficult, is that I'm in a relationship with a woman who works for the same company but just at a different location. She has the same job title as I do...we have the same boss. We are not looking to advertise this relationship, but at some point our employees will find out and possibly our boss and others higher in the company. just not sure how to handle when people ask "if I'm dating?" I guess I could be upfront without details.
It's also odd for neighbors who used to see me walking my dogs with my H now see me with her, and they havent asked any questions...but I always expect it.
