DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-year-old male. I have had erectile dysfunction for five years. I am sure this was the cause of my last divorce. I like to date women, but when it's time to initiate a physical relationship, I usually move on.
When I showed no interest in sex, one woman asked if I was gay. Another went so far as to ask me to "prove it."
I have a heart condition, diabetes, and the medicine I am prescribed prevents me from taking Viagra.
Abby, how do I handle this gracefully? -- JUST WANT TO DATE IN MODESTO, CALIF.
DEAR JUST: You don't owe these women an explanation unless you're considering a committed relationship. I see no reason to disclose your medical problems before that.
Continue dating. Don't isolate yourself. Many women out there are just looking for companionship, too. You will find someone. Trust me!
