How do i get things sorted
(((((((Min))))))) and big snogs to ya.
Min is right, it is bloody tough especially when people tell you you're lovely etc. I spend a lot of time on my own at the mo and sometimes need a cuddle and would love someone to take care of me and tell me everything will be alright. But I've had that and lost it and sometimes think that I wont get it back, or if I even really want it again.
I've wonderful friends who are looking out for me so I embrace that. If anything else happens at the moment, it's a bonus.
Don't be down though Slowfoot, things do happen and you can make them happen too.
Aw Min. Made me really sad to read that and I remember feeling that way and it's crap!!!
Bessie mate is a bit the same... I think she's really pretty, she's clever (senior registrar dentist in a hozzie), she's funny, kind, lovely, she's interesting (has heaps of interests/hobbies), own house (very very lovely cottage), a bit quirky (owns a 6ft python), lovely family, not at all unhinged.... but she can't get a data with a nice man for love or money... She's done the dating websites (where most men in their 40s wanted to meet women 20 years younger than themselves... what's that all about??), speed dating, singles dinner nights, singles activity weekends... but she says it all feels so contrived. Likewise my my other bessie male mate has been single for coming up to 8 years now and he'd make someone a perfect boyfriend. He's loyal, friendly, a great listener (counsellor!), has a really fab moral code and would never cheat on anyone... again women just don't seem to be interested...
I think I was just really lucky that after years of wubbish, and just about to give up on relationships, I've met someone absolutely sterling, and I do count myself very very lucky for that and don't ever take it for granted.
Seems like everybody has a great best mate who's single. We should get them all in a room together.

I was single for two years after my marriage ended.
I was fit, healthy, member of a running club, owned my own flat, financially independent, not unattractive (so I'm told).
During that time I had two dates.
Then I met my lovely, lovely, Squeeze (at a forum social!)
So although it's not by any means guaranteed, don't be too dismayed by the fact that some people take longer to find their "significant other" than others.
Just cos it hasn't happened yet, Min, doesn't mean it won't ever.
I might end up being in the same position (not missionary unfortunately ). I split up with my long-term partner in May and a friend asked me if I'd met anyone I'm interested in since the split. Although it's a bit soon for me to be thinking about getting back into a relationship I said to her "What if I never met anyone?". It's definitely a possibility.

I s'pose I could always go on one of those sites selling plastic battery-operated items.
And separating the nutters from rest is an interesting experience. At least if you get it wrong you come out with some tales to tell .... thank you but I don't want to hear about your mother's bunions ...
Men in their 40s and early 50s generally want to meet women in their 30s. Must be the kudos of having a yonger girlfriend. Not sure what that leaves for those of us in our mid 40s ...

When I've been on dating sights I sent my limits to 5 years either side. I've seen women who were younger, same age and older than me. My ex is 4 years older than me, so it really doesn't bother me. If you are attracted to someone, age really doesn't matter. My sis in law for example is 14 year older than my brother.
