Ask Amy: I don’t really know her. Is it a bad idea to let her share my bed?

Dear Amy: I have a woman friend whose lease is up at the end of the month. She asked about moving in with me. I’m retired, never married, and we have gone out about three times as friends, but I can see spending the rest of my life with her (she is 20 years younger).

The house I own is small and I have a male housemate, also retired, living in one of the bedrooms. The other bedroom is for his home-based business. There isn’t any place for her to sleep, except in my bed.

I don’t know much about her. She has an ex-boyfriend who seems to bother her, which is one reason she wants to move. She is also filing for divorce from her husband in another country.

She works two jobs and keeps strange hours.

We haven’t been intimate yet, but we both want to be.

My life would really change if she lived here.

I don’t know if just being friends and sleeping in the same bed without being intimate will work, while we are still getting to know each other.
