Dear Annie: I’m a 70-year-old woman, still attractive and athletic. I have been dating “Sam,” 74, for nearly three years. When we met online, I clearly stated that I wanted to get married in the near future and that I had three cats and wanted a man who loves animals.
Sam is a nice, educated man. He treats me well, and we do a lot of different things. However, he still talks with his ex-wife and ex-girlfriend regularly. He says his ex-girlfriend is lonely and has a sad life. I could deal with that, but his ex-wife was the “love of his life.” He says they have a lot in common and she is fun to talk to. Occasionally, they see each other. I don’t like it, and neither does her boyfriend.
