Yesterday I had the most gorgeous night out ever, and I met my date on Facebook
I am 68 years old and I have been widowed for 6 years now, and I thought my romantic days were through. I retired three years ago, and that was when I became almost a recluse.
I'd sit home all day watching Tv - my favorites are NCIS and The Voice, and I mostly stopped seeing my friends.
The only people I interacted with were the supermarket employees or bank tellers. My daughter and her family live in another state, so I rarely get to see them at all.
While they were here on the 4th of July my teenage granddaughter logged me into Facebook on my iPhone and helped me with my profile. I started finding dozens of old friends, all the way back to my school days, and I was delighted.
Three weeks ago a man asked me for friendship and I accepted. He is a friend of an old friend, and about my age.
We started talking every day, and eventually, we were talking all day! 'Jack' is funny and kind and after a few days he wanted us to meet, but I was afraid. So we skyped and he is just as handsome as his picture. Finally, he managed to talk me around and last night I met him for dinner.
There was this instant physical chemistry between us, and we had a wonderful dinner. We couldn't stop talking and laughing, and afterward, we went for a walk and he asked me back to his place for a drink.
Well, we ended up making love and it was just magical. He made me feel like a young, beautiful woman, He brought me back to life again.
He has already messaged me this morning, telling me he wants to see me again tonight and tomorrow and forever.
I'm a little frightened. I'm falling in love with 'Jack' and I'm afraid of being hurt or disappointed. Should I slow things down - I've known him for less than a month? Or should I just live this moment for what it is worth? I'm in need of advice from ladies experienced in romance!
