DEAR DOCTOR K:

Here is the daily Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle for September 10: 20130910pzdxl-a.pdf
I am a 75-year-old man who lives in a gated community. For the last eight months I have been seeing a woman who lives nearby. We are starting to fall in love.
Our problem is her 95-year-old mother, who lives with her. Her mom is pretty healthy and has some money, but she's scared to be left alone. Because of this, my lady and I have difficulty finding private time.
Adapted from a recent online discussion.
I have been dating "John" for the past year. He has been divorced for two years from "Heidi," his wife/partner of 30 years. They had no children and she lives a few states away, but they are "bestest buddies" and were in contact almost daily until I put my foot down.
Many of her calls came in when we were together: in bed, having dinner out, etc. I told John how I saw Heidi's contact as interference in our relationship. John finally told Heidi not to contact him unless it was divorce-related.
I recently found out they are still in contact. I told him today if he wants a friendship with his ex-wife that is fine; however, I don't want to be a threesome.
Am I overreacting? Why can't they move on? He says they are just friends and he is so glad she divorced him to give him a second chance at life. I see her as a ball and chain.
