Relationships after 60
After 37 years in a marriage, I find myself alone, not having that someone special by my side, sharing my feelings and dreams and counting on them no matter what.
My husband of 37 years passed away unexpectedly. I have 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren who have their own lives. Now, what do I do? It’s now 7 years later and I still ask that question. I went through the normal process of depression, anger, wanting to be by myself and pretending I’m okay when I’m not. I started to date 4 years after his death. I was definitely in unfamiliar territory. It was awkward, uncomfortable and also a bit exciting. I met some very nice men and I also made a lot of mistakes. I now find myself questioning if I’m making the right decisions for me. I’ve realized that finding someone you care about really isn’t that difficult, but finding someone that has the same dreams that you have and who you really care about is much more difficult. I’m starting my journey and decided to have fun along the way!!
