I've been married to a woman for 30 years… but I have suddenly started fancying men | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: ALTHOUGH I’ve always been attracted to women – and have been married to one for 30 years – I have suddenly started fancying men.

Now I want to test the waters by dating a guy but I don’t want to wreck my marriage.

I’m a man of 55 with a 54-year-old wife. We are happily married and have a decent sex life.

Yet lately I keep imagining making love with men. I always considered myself to be straight and I have no idea where these same-sex feelings have come from.

I would like to try a dating app to see if I am actually gay, or if this is just a phase.

However, I don’t want to break my wife’s heart.
