My husband died suddenly nearly 2 years ago.
After 10 months I started a relationship with a divorcee who was totally unlike my late DH. He is cartoonist & a journalist...DH was a retired lawyer and quite sensible..
I was smitten and extremely attracted to him this man. The intimate side was off the scale and it took my mind off my terrible grief. My DH and I hadn't had that close intimate relationship for some time before his sudden death...we even had separate bedrooms for some years, although we did cuddle sometimes.
This latest relationship blew hot & cold, mainly on his side, and probably due to the fact that he lived extremely modestly, whereas I'm quite comfortable. His lifestyle was living in the moment.
Anyway, we finally and mutually broke up recently and it's brought back the intense grief I felt in the months after widowhood. The loss has been triggered in me.
We were both in our late 60s, so it's not as though I have youth on my side. He made me feel free & young again, although his actions were very inconsistant
I'm a busy woman with many interests, yet I yearn for the physical closeness we had. Are my feelings due to delayed grief for DH or are they real feelings for this unsuitable man?
