I had a wonderful day

I was married for 22 years to the guy I thought was the love of my life. Been divorced for quite awhile. When he left, my heart was never the same. He took my trust, my confidence, and even a bit of my self.

BUT
Tonight, at age 66, I had a date with a guy that was 70. I felt like I was 25 all over again!!!! Yes there will be a second date.

How sweet. It's so nice and comforting to have a companion especially when you're a little older in age. Would you ever get married again or just have a rest-of-your-life partner?

I was divorced in 2016 and thought
Old 06-14-2018, 08:26 AM

I would never find someone to be with again. But, like you, I took a chance. Am now dating an almost 70-year-old for over a year. I am 68. We joke that we are 14-1/2 again, because that is what it feels like. We never stop laughing and are pretty much living together, though we each have a home and no plans to sell either. If I ever were to say I had a perfect relationship, this comes VERY close. Sometimes, he says, "I wish we had met 20 years ago."
But I doubt I would have been able to appreciate him then. Our backgrounds, educational levels, experiences are so different. But none of that matters. Just hoping we have another couple of decades together.
