In my 70s and totally lovesick. Just can’t stop thinking about her and it’s actually affecting me mentally and physically. Anyone else in my age group ever had this experience at this age and how did you cope with it? Thanks for your help.

Hi, I am 66, my ex of 7 years left me 2 years ago. It triggered a major depression I haven't recovered from yet.

Thanks very much for your replies. Just communicating with someone helps a lot because it seems like this is an unusual problem at my age. So Fairy Lucretia, yes there does seem to be some interest as we are good friends. Now for the BIG complication. I am married and she is a good friend of both myself and my wife. Yes, I've tried to suppress my feelings but they just won't go away. I feel so trapped because I can see no way out but again, my feelings for her just will not subside. Can't see any good way forward at this point. Very much appreciate any feedback.
