No offense man, but when you say stuff like this:

I cannot commit to caring for anyone else. And I am not interested in being "cured" to the point where I could care that much about someone else.

...it makes me hope that you don't have sex with anyone else again. At least not until you can change your attitude w/re to dealing with someone else.

Do you recognize the cyclical pattern here? How your wife's abuse led her to abusing you, and how that might lead you to abusing someone else, albeit in a different way?
