I'm not sure how to make a very long story short. I'm 50 and my mom's 73. Divorced, kids and I lived with my mother. We share expenses because she can't afford to live on her own and frankly it worked. However, my kids are now grown and on their own. I never dated on a regular basis when the kids were growing up because I didn't want men in an out of their lives. Now however I would like to have that company, but I now spend more time watching over my mother. And believe me the men out there don't want to hear that you live with your mother and I'm not a friend with bennifit type. I feel so guilty because I want a life of my own, or such to have someone special. What suggestions are there.
