Sex dating for men
They see each other most days, but Carole says: “It’s more exciting seeing each other when you don’t see each other all the time.” David was keen to avoid the compromising involved by sharing each other’s space.
“You don’t want to be in a close, tight relationship again with all that involves, with all the sort of mundane things.” Throughout our research we have repeatedly heard how this second chance at love and sex was entirely unexpected.

Solange, 79, from Wales told us: “I might have been in my 40s when I had an inkling of what it was.

David and Carole live opposite each other, having moved down to Hastings after their respective partners died.
