Losing the love of his life from cancer has Duane Chapman rethinking his entire life.
“When your spouse dies, as a man, I mean as me, so generally probably everybody, you’re released from that obligation of being married,” the man known best as ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ told PEOPLE Now in a recent interview. “So your mind and you go crazy. And then after a while, you realize that never will no one ever love me as much as she did. And I will probably never love anyone else as much as I loved her.”
Fans will recall that Chapman’s wife Beth Chapman passed away after a battle with cancer this past June. She was just 51 at the time of her death.
And no, he has no plans to start dating again anytime soon.
“Not that I have, but you know, it’s not worth it,” he explained. “I don’t want to tell the whole story about my mom, my dad and my life and all that stuff again to a new person. Not yet.”
And yes, that means no sex.
“Sex is a thing like almost in the past right now,” he said in the same interview. “I’m not having it and I don’t care. It’s weird.”
Indeed, Chapman finds himself at quite a sad time in his life right now as he tries to deal with the reality of the loss. Luckily, he has many people who are there to help him through it.

“If I’m completely alone, then I start thinking about it and crying,” he said. “If I’m around people, it’s a little easier.”
