Since losing my dear wife three years ago I have felt desperately lonely

SENIOR SADNESS

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE losing my dear wife to cancer three years ago I have felt desperately lonely. I hate being on my own.

I met a lovely lady through friends last autumn and we planned a week’s holiday together in a cottage near the sea this summer. We’re now in a “bubble” together.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.

I am 78, she is 64 and we have fallen in love.

We tried to have sex but I couldn’t get an erection, which disappointed us both.

Is it due to my age?

Or could it be guilt – thinking about my late wife?

I do feel bad but want to move on.

DEIDRE SAYS: You have nothing to feel guilty about.

Your wife would want you to be happy, not stuck in lonely misery.

Loving someone new doesn’t mean you forget your wife.

Love is not a finite quantity but expands with our hearts. 

My e-leaflet Great Sex At Any Age will help but do see your GP in case this is a symptom of an underlying health problem.
