True Welshlion ......maybe keeping the ‘romance’ out of the relationship would be easier ... I would not want to turn down any forthcoming companionship or fun for my final years though .... i guess one doesn’t know what will happen, until it happens ....

"And therein lies the rub because once you get into a romantic relationship the other person will, more likely than not, feel obligated..."


The other person also has a choice about starting a relationship with someone they know to be dying,
If they choose to do this, then surely there is no 'obligation' from their point of view, but just a desire to spend the last couple of years with someone they love.

I sort of agree with Elias
My hubby sadly died a few years ago, have had other relationships since, but have found the older ones want looking after, whereas the younger ones are after your property, maybe I never did find Mr Right.
The thought of being someone’s carer and they being mine is a no.

If all your family affairs are in order, then I would say yes .

And become a carer by default.....
