I find the idea of dating very difficult after spending my whole life with my husband, who died almost two years ago. I am ready to open my life and heart, and share a new life with someone. I have an amazing family, and 5 beautiful grandchildren. My two sons live in New York, and my daughter lives in Athens, GA. I try to visit as much as I can, but the truth is, my life is really here and their lives are so busy with young children. I am very cultured, well traveled and intellectually curious. I have no clue how to really start doing online dating! it's all so different, but I am very adaptable, and I have time to figure it out! I attend almost every classical music, theatrical performance and art exhibit in Sarasota, and have a great group of girl friends, to keep me social. But it would be nice to share some time with a person who also has experienced some of what I have. I love to meet people, and go to new places. People have said to me, that I can have a whole new life, which is hard for me to imagine after being with someone for so many years. While I will never forget my husband, my sadness is not the same now. I feel ready and excited to meet someone to read, travel, and share intimacy with.
