The question I have, though, is why she doesn’t want a sexual relationship.
If it is due to intimacy issues, any form of relationship beyond a casual friendship may be challenging.
The end of a working life signals a loss of colleagues and team spirit.
The end of a relationship, through divorce or death, is harder to recover from.
There are groups for flirting and meeting and friendship of every kind.
Make finding one true friend your goal, by all means, but there is a world of friendship out there and if you simply want to meet all kinds of people, then your options are much wider than somebody who is looking for a true and complete love. Make it a goal to find groups in which you share an activity or discussion or create something with others. On you will find there are more then 1,500 groups of all kinds in London alone who share some kind of interest. There are walking groups, art groups, groups for vampires and for learning Vietnamese, groups for chocolate, photography, laughter and culture, groups for hiking and volunteering, groups for atheism and Christianity.
You live in the middle of London, which is a huge advantage.
On your doorstep are more social and cultural opportunities than I could shake a stick at.
You could have philosophical and religious reasons for choosing to deny the sexual part of yourself. You could have boxed yourself into the corner of thinking that your body no longer bears inspection or that it might not function in the way it once did.
Or you might not be able to face the idea of an elderly male body not functioning as it once did either.
