I was married for 33 years, since I was 18. I waited a year after my divorce to start dating. I've been dating one man now for about 6 months but I'm not sure it's going anywhere. We enjoy each others company, lots of chemistry, but it almost seems "too" comfortable. No one has said "I love you" yet & I'm not sure I see it coming. I feel like I want to continue dating this man but not close the door on other options either. I don't want to lose a good man either. Am I crazy to think someone my age can find mad, passionate, true love? Stick with this and see where it goes? Or move on? What to do, what to do?

I think it's possible to find mad, passionate love out there. But you will have to increase your chances by dating different people. Not all at once of course.
Ten years ago I got divorced after 20 years of marriage and started dating. Had two serious relationships but I didn't feel totally enthusiastic about them. Last August out of the blue I was contacted by a women I knew 30 years ago, looking for a long-lost mutual friend. Together we both worked on tracking down this friend, and while doing so found out she was divorced and we just started talking now and then by phone.
Long story short, I flew down to meet her and we just had so much in common. But the thing was that she had withdrawn from dating because she felt the man she was looking for wasn't out there. She wanted someone who could relate to her on an emotional level and all the men she met couldn't do that until I came along. The fact that I could relate to her on that level turned her on so much. She is everything I would want in a woman, and we love each other dearly. I have never felt such a strong sense of "fit" with a woman before.
So, what I'm saying, is that someone special is out there. You may have to date a few, but your chances will only increase if you see more people.0
