OK - so I'm a single lady in my early 70's in pretty good shape. My husband of 28 years was a diabetic so our intimate life was kind of limited. First 7 years we were married, it was all good. When he was diagnosed with adult onset diabetes, (genetic thing), that was then end of a sex life. I learned to reign in my sex drive. I loved him & wanted only him, even if it meant no sex. He passed away in August, 2016 & guess what? My hormones are in full gear.
I guess you have to be lucky to meet someone who will become important in your life, just as you were lucky to meet your spouse.
I would be very sad indeed without the new man in my life making me coffee every morning with a love heart in the foam. He knows I struggle at times with the past, such as flashbacks to hospital horrors.
Perhaps it all depends on your life's journey whether you find anyone else. And remember there are pluses and minuses with every relationship.
I just read the article and it made a lot of sense. I have just done an overseas trip and I think being able to see things from a distance has helped get things into perspective. it also made me see it is a couples' world.
No, I don't feel like dating yet but another year on could make a difference I'm sure.
