To cut a long story short, I was widowed very suddenly 18 months ago. He was the love of my life, my soulmate and my best friend. We met 12 years ago through "Internet dating" and ended up getting married after a year of sharing time between our respective homes then eventually he came to live with me. No point in messing about at our age!!
I now find myself at the stage and age (62) that I don't want to spend the rest of my life alone and crave male companionship. I have tentatively looked on some mature dating sites and someone has made an initial contact with me. We have briefly chatted but we are limited to how many messages we can send without having to pay for subscription. He has now asked me for my phone number but I am being very cautious about it all.
To be honest, I really don't know how I will feel speaking or even meeting another man. He does seem quite nice, and yes, he is a real person. (I checked him out to make sure he was not a scammer). Am I being disloyal to my late husband seeking out someone else? I have family around (not my children's father) but they are all so busy with their own children and work that they tend to forget that I sit at home night after night on my own.
I just want to have what I had before...... a loving relationship, companionship, someone to come home to after a day at work, someone to talk to, give me a cuddle when I am down, someone to love me. You get the gist of what I am saying?
Is this wrong of me to want someone to love me again and me to love them after what some may consider a short time of grieving?
