Dear Aunty Lisa,
I'VE been meeting a man at my church for s ex but we can't go public about our relationship as he is the priest. I'm 37 and widowed. My husband died 12 years ago in a road accident when he was on his way to work. He was 35. We sadly never had any children.
I'm a Catholic and the church has been of great help to me since he passed away and I get involved with the women's groups and preparing the church for services. I've made lots of friends there. We had a new priest join us from a different area. He's 42. Everyone likes him.
He has a way with people and his sermons are always lively and thought-provoking. He's the sort of man who can light up a room as he chats to people.
I arranged to put my father in a home as he suffers with dementia and I was very upset about it. I was having a moment of sadness in the church when the priest came in. He sat with me and comforted me. He was wonderful. I called round to his home the following day with a pie I'd made by way of a thank you.
He invited me in for some tea. Our conversation got very deep — me talking about my husband and he about a girl he'd known in his teens. He said he missed relationships most of all. He said I am an attractive woman and I should think about dating again.
