Q. Two years ago I met the man I’m in love with. We met online. At that time, both my parents were diagnosed with cancer, and being their only daughter, I took care of them, commuting to them almost daily. Meanwhile, my relationship grew over phone calls, e-mails, and texts. For nine months he called and was a wonderful source of support and encouragement. He lost a parent to cancer, so he knew what I was going through.
Our relationship grew as our conversations became daily, intimate, and thoughtful. Months later we met in person and it was truly love at first sight! I’ve been separated from my husband for a few years but I never brought any man home. I have a daughter so I am very careful and guard my private life from her.
