Finally Admitting It

I am a retired Educator of African-American decent. I have two adult children and have been married over 40 years. We have  a good marriage, finally. After looking back over the years, I finally can admit that I have been attracted to women for many years. I am 62 years old and I'm thinking that I may never have an experience with a woman. Don't really want a relationship, after 40 years, I don't need that. Just want a friend to share. Are there other older women out there you feel as I do?

Hello.<br />
<br />
I am a 37yo divorced woman who fell in love with my 58 yo best friend. She has been married fro 33 yrs. I believe she is in a similar situation as you. She knows of my feelings for her. I told her a week ago. She is taking time to think. I think I may have stunned her with my honesty and disclosure. I can only imagine what it must be like having been married so long. And then your dear friend discloses her feelings for you, when you've married decades. Wow. Plus, I'm a beautiful, well off young person as she says - I'm not sure she saw this coming. I think is she is incredible. I didn't ask her for a response. I don't expect or want a rlx, I understand she is married. She was kissing me, so I needed to put some boundaries in place. Simply saying, there are many others out there. Check out askjoanne.net btw for more situations like yours.
