"Ice creAm! Yes!!! I forgot to mention always having to tell your child "no" when they would ask to have their friends over. It was so painful and unfair. Not to mention, at least for me, lack of intimacy for five years. Actually 5 1/2."

"Slick haha I will agree! Regardless of age! There is an over abundance of men who live at home or don't work or haven't seen a mirror in years, it's a very very thin pool of choices! Lol"

"Thanks, it ALL makes perfect sense even tho u all have a different angle. My mom and dad were married 48 years. She was 67 when he passed 5 years ago. She too prolly wouldn't mind a companion but the thought of another man in any fashion she…"

It was horrible. It was beautiful but it's so final now. He's gone. I feel like I'll be a zombie forever. Or this person who doesn't care about anything anymore. I know people move on but not all people...
