Dear Dr. Hedda It’s hard to know where to start. I’m not sure if I am still carrying around old issues or if this is a new one. I’ve been divorced for 3 years now. The divorce was a very unhappy and scary experience. I never expected to be alone at 63. I found out that my husband had been cheating for years. The most difficult part for me was that I never noticed he stopped caring,. The feelings of betrayal and loss were overwhelming. I went through a long period of time doubting myself and blaming myself for his...

Dear Dr. Hedda I’m in my early thirties and for years I have been watching my friends fall in love, marry and have families. I kept wondering when my time would come. Oh I’ve dated several men but never felt love. Maybe, I thought, I’m supposed to have a career and I would never fall in love. Then two years ago, at a fund raising garden party,...

Dear Dr. Hedda I’m in a situation that is very new to me and I’m a little confused about my feelings. I’ve been divorced for almost four years now and I started dating again about 2 years ago. After some searching around I decided to try online dating. At first it was a big disappointment to me. I was meeting a lot of men, nice men, my age range, but no one made sparks fly. I had a lot of one date dates. Then recently I men a younger man online, very much younger And he was terrific. Smart, funny, attractive,...

Dear Dr. Hedda So after much nagging from my friends I signed up on two different online dating sites. Big mistake. 90% of the men in my age group are also on two different sites so one would have been enough. I have had 12 meet me dates in the last two weeks. Is it just me or is everyone disappointed. I made my online “profile” honest and clear about who I was and what I was looking for. Another big mistake. Most of the men I had “meet me” dates with where not exactly the person they said they were in their...

Dear Dr. Hedda I’ve been single for a few years and I miss having a man in my life. Friends have “fixed” me up with several nice men but none that made we want to see them again. A few months ago I signed up with one of the on-line dating services that specializes in my age group. I went out with 4 men from this Service. Three were definitely not what their profile stated and one was just plain not my type. This doesn’t count for the 2 men that stood me up. I tried all the things my single and married friends...

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of reading “Dating Advice From Men.” Sorry, Cosmo but I don’t care if Sam M. thinks it’s sexy when girls “think like men,” are “awesome,” and “super interested in you.” Despite your persuasiveness, I’m probably just going to be myself, and think with my already awesome lady brain, and be as into...

Dear Dr. Hedda It’s complicated. Fernando and I have been married for 14 years, and it was a happy marriage until four years ago when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. His treatment was successful except for the fact that he developed “chemo brain syndrome”. His main symptoms are forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating and irritability. As a result of these symptoms he lost his job at a chemical research lab. This led to a severe depression with suicidal thoughts and it made our marriage difficult. He would snap...

Dear Dr Hedda: The nicest thing has been happening to me. But let me give you the back story first. My husband, Frank, died 2 and 1/2 years ago. It was a nice, comfortable marriage. I’m now 63 and alone. So after trying out different ways of meeting men and starting dating again I joined two dating services, went to a couple of local singles events, started taking tennis lessons and that’s when the story changes. After about two months of lessons I got set up for doubles play. I was matched with this very attractive 46...

Dear Dr. Hedda: This is hard to explain. When I think about it I get stuck between two outcomes. This is what happened. Three months ago I found out my husband was having an affair. We’ve been married 14 years and this is his first that I know of. I found out through a friend who saw him out one night with another woman. My friend said that their behavior indicated they were intimate. She saw a lot of touching and kissing. I never told him I knew but the anger in me kept building. Why didn’t I confront him about it...
