70 year old man, 55 year old womanPage 1 of 1    
I met a very intelligent semi retired professional 70 year old man, whom I adored, we had much in common. He was attentive, intelligent & known well within his field (also my field of expertise). We enjoyed each other's company, and I am a young blonde, young at heart, but very compassionate. After a while, we eventually had an intimate encounter of sorts, although at no time could he perform any any way, at all, other than sweet words which were enough for me at this time!! He was on Detrol, Viagra, had a knee replacement & a pacemaker & more! None of that mattered!! I felt badly but reasurred him of his esteem in my eyes & worthiness in my eyes. He eventually went from my home to his home town & told his kids he loved me, (about 150 miles away), but continued to write love letters, IM's & tell me how he was telling his kids about how much I meant, and he had been making plans for the future. Within 2 days he went to see a "therapist" who advised him to back off -- it was too soon for him "and we had a whole world ahead of us." I don't know where I stand, but I am hurt deeply. We had so much more in common (including a career, grandchildren, etc). What do I make of all of this? We had a faith in common as 70 year olds, dump a young 50 year old, after sex, for just the encounter & lie extensively about their feelings and reasons? just to prove a point? Help me out!!! Please.

I am sorry to hear that. I hope you two can get back on track and that you two will continue the great relationship that you had before. You sound like a vary mature woman and you sound like you have a great heart and that is really special. I hope things work out for you two.

Best of luck to you.

I wouldnt say 50 is exactly young and I wondered in reading your profile if you did not select him because of his age thinking he would not reject you. Whatever the reason he decided to "back off".. so let him and try not to take it personal an old man with a knee replacement, on viagra, a pacemaker ( and all the other stuff you mentioned wrong with him)... that he decided you werent what he wanted. it could have been he had someone else interested that he liked better.

Hate to say it because it sounded like a good start, but I think there is no therapist. Just his kids worrying about sharing him and the inheritance. At his age the kids attention and approval are everything. And if he's not strong enough in his feelings for you to stand up to them or a therapist. Its likely over. Even if he was, and any of this is valid, it would be a rough time dealing with suppose ably grownup kids, who think more about themselves than they're dads happiness. Seen it happen a couple times and not just in the tabloids. Just my take considering how you describe the situation, and in spite of sounding like a canned response that doesn't ease the pain, you're still too young and pretty to have to worry about finding someone else. Hope I'm wrong and it works out for you.
