I recently lost my wife of 35 years to cancer. My depression doesn't completely stem from that, but it definitely added to it. It's pretty complicated, how I'm feeling. One issue I am having is the constant craving for intimacy. I'm not just talking about sex. I'm talking about connecting with someone on a deep level. A good description would be like the after glow, after sex, I guess. I'm having a hard time describing it. Where I married my best friend, intimacy was not really her strong suit. We had great sex but there wasn't really the intimacy that I'm trying to describe. I hope that makes sense to whoever is reading this. I crave intimacy so much I find my heart reaching out to women on TV ads, even. It isn't hard for an ad for a dating app to get their hooks into me. What has saved me, to this point, is I don't have the money they want. My last issue I want to post here is... I loved my wife. Like I said before, she was my best friend and partner in every sense of the word. I lost her only 2 months ago, yet I already find myself searching dating apps, falling for Instagram scams, etc. I don't want to dishonor the memory of my wife. I really did love her, but I find myself with this craving. Is it too soon? Am I dishonoring her memory?
