My husband and I raised three very independent young ladies together. We found time for each other and the girls activities. Sadly, cancer intervened and left me a widow. THat was over three years ago. I am searching for another longterm relationship. My at present male companion is a 5 year old mixed breed shepherd cross breed dog. Not too much of a conversationalist or hand holder which are two of the things I miss. I also travel freuently and don't enjoy going alone. I am anot unhappy, but am unfilled.
