I am 53 and the woman I am interested in is 50. I want to move forward with the relationship. I have known her a few years now and I rent an apartment from her. She is divorced and so am I. I have very strong feelings for her. I want to tell her how i feel but do not want to push her away. I feel like i have to get this off my chest with her so I know what I have to do. I am not getting any younger, and need a healthy relationship with someone.
Dear Taking a Chance,
Does she seem interested in you? So, I would suggest that you tell her how you feel. If she is on the same page, then great for both of you. If she declines, be prepared to be respectful and to let it go. Since you’re renting an apartment from her, I assume this is someone you want to maintain a good relationship with regardless so be honest but respectful whatever her answer may be.
Wishing you luck and love.
