Widowed for more than six years, I decided to seek a man who might spend New Year's Eve with me. That was my goal as I signed on to a respected dating site. Very soon I was matched with this intriguing Steed who lived several states away. The New Years date never materialized, but there followed two years of a long-distance love affair which changed me forever. Charlie romanced me, enchanted me and took my heart as no one had ever done before. An actor, an attorney and an athlete in his seventies, he had his way with me, thank God! I used to say to him, "Can you believe it, all this passion, all this delicious lust at our ages?" My lover's quick response was, "Why not…we should be doing this in our nineties and when we are a hundred." When Charlie held me, I thought all things were possible.
