My best friend of 35 years is a man (I’m a woman). We are in our mid-50s. We love each other and have for some time. We have just been waiting for the other one to say it. So, finally we have both admitted to one another we’d like to try elevating our relationship to the next level. It’s going beautifully. We enjoy each other so much and are spending our weekends together and have begun a physical relationship. We are happy. Truly are! We want to go to Texas together in the fall to a game, and he has asked me to go with to visit his family. He says he is happy and fond of where his life is going. How does this man feel about us?
