Dating man over 50
It took a couple of months for us to get more serious.
Plus, after my dad died, I thought, ‘I don’t have a dad to walk me down the aisle.’ A year-and-a-half after the split, my friend set me up with Alan, a guy she knew from her daughter's school.If I wanted to buy someone or myself a gift, I did. And what my grandmother says about love is true: What doesn’t happen in years, happens in minutes.”How it happened: “I’d been a nun and left after six years because I wanted to get married. He’d been divorced, had no children and was happy being single.It was refreshing because we weren’t pushing into each other into a relationship.We planned to hike a mountain for our first date, but it was pouring rain.I opened the door, took one look at him and said, 'I'll get my rain coat.' There was chemistry, but more importantly, a beautiful connection.
Later, a spiritual advisor told me I survived because I ‘wanted to experience love.’ When I was 49, I had foot surgery.
