I'm a 66 year old widow (two years in July) who is moving on with her life. "Dating in Your Sixties" is a book I simply *must*write. What trip it's been! Fun, funny, sad, pitiful, intriguing, stimulating, engaging...pick your adjective. It's been all these things and more.
I still haven't found Mr. Perfect (yeah, yeah, I know... he doesn't exist)! but I have found Mr. Comes Very Close. We'll see how things proceed.
I haven't gotten much more computer literate over the years. If I had, I would post a picture. Anyone who wants to help, please feel free! I need all the help I can get! :)
I'm looking forward to getting acquainted with all y'all.
Harriet, It is just as hard for me to fathom the why's behind the rejections I received over the past twenty years. At first, there was cuddling, etc but waned over time. He moment building on the next creating more and distance each passing year. Everything I've read does not lead me any closer to an answer when the other continues to claim to love me, but fails to really demonstrate it in any way. Words without action have little meaning.
Thank you for your response and question. Yes, my last child is finally grown and off to college. This will be her fourth year and she is majoring psychology. Funny, she calls almost every day and shares her life, both good and bad. In ways she seems to need me (us) more now as she is thrust more into the real world. I've struggled for the very questions you have asked, since my daughter left, and still the answers are not clear. Do I have the energy again? Will it be worse, or pretty much the same? Is it really possible that it could actually be better? I hope the group and conversations will converge at some point with my own thoughts and a new decision will be made. Thanks!
