    Being Single

    I hate it. Was married for 18 years now divorced for over 2 years. I’ve tried to get back into dating scene but very hard for me. I tried match.com but it’s herendous. Soliciting for everything on there. Duplicate Fake profiles etc. I’m just an old fashioned type of guy. Is that so wrong?

    what is making you to get back to the relationship again, why do not you enjoy many woman then you will not feel alone and have plenty of fun time with different woman. Some man likes to get different woman smell. those kind man can not be with one woman.
    and what made you not to get a woman since you are old fashioned guy.

    Hi If you go back down the posts your find some with some good ideas on how to find the new partner your looking for, and not a web site insight, so what your mid 40's to 50 years old, its not to late to find the partner your looking, but its not bars you need.

    Try looking at the things you like to do and see of you can find clubs that deals with them, see if you can find a partner there.

    RE: Being Single

    first off, you are hardly alone. dating later in life can be pretty taxing. second, maybe you need more time to define yourself, for yourself. you can do that now, because you have no distractions that a serious relationship requires. just hang out wherever and find out who you are NOW, get your confidence back, and then, if interested, do a little casual chasing by meeting people who do the things you enjoy doing. don't push it; let things happen, and if they don't, don't sweat it. time will take care of all that. good luck.

    RE: Being Single

    you have lost touch with what it is like to date. It is not what it used to be. You may want to self-educate yourself on what a modern dating is about, read some forums and adjust your expectations. Yes, especially your expectations.

    Here is a list of very good quality and insightful articles on dating and relationships written for men BY A WOMAN: https://beluckyinlove.net/for-men/

    Also, are you sure you are ready to date? Many people put an equal sign '=' between rejections and their own self-worth. Others expect to hit the jack pot right away. Some are not sure what they are looking for and others hit a pause button (out of fear) every time they think they found 'the one' . Do any of these sound like you?

        Okay. Who would like to use those dating site??? How many was successful to get GF or BF or mistress. Not only single person use those dating website, from my knowledge people who having relationship with wife or husband or Girlfriend or boyfriend those kind of people love to search those website and try to find a person ,so that they can cheat on their relationship. Specially, men or women who has enough money and not worry about his or her partner or previously got use to on those before committed with a relationship those sort of people like to get into this and try to find one or many persons for their enjoyment. Very rear people use those for actual relationship commitment. Most of the time single people fall in love with their college/university friends, or coworkers or neighbor or can meet someone from gym or meet someone from vacation place or so on. But so far I know people who use dating site want to meet and want to commit actual relationship, those number of relationship is limited. Most of the people specially married people use those dating site just for fun. So from my point of view I really do not think people use it for serious business, they more want it for fun.

        Despite what you think, many people do actually find love on dating sites. Just because you haven't seen it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

        I see, many people can find really love as many they want. One gone and another one is on the way.

    RE: Being Single

    I agree with you. It sucks to be single. The dating sites are awful. Most people are looking to hook up and they lie about everything. Maybe try getting involved with your church, or other activities that get you out with people. I just figure if God wants me to have another mate, it will happen. I quit the dating sites along time ago. And Plenty of Fish is one of the WORST! I would love to find somebody normal.

        I lost my partner in 2014 and started dating sites last year. What a waste of time and money. All the guys want is to hook up for a little sum sum....when I want to have a laugh I read some of the profiles and response to emails. I am still looking and is wondering what is wrong here...,20 years later and what was normal is not anymore. Wants and needs plays a bigger picture now with the opposite sex and we need to make the changes that is why I have decided to focus on me and I could not be happier. If I meet that special someone then I will give it 100% till then.... no settling just to have someone. Cheers and hang in there we will find that special someone someday.

        I totally agree. I was only married 3 years, almost 40 yrs ago, but never wanted to do it again, but I do like going out and having fun, just not alone. I looked into Plenty of Fish, since someone suggested that, everyone wants a picture or they won't even talk to you, and I never did post it, after YEARS I got three interests, one seemed nice, but too far away, one wanted marriage, I didn't, and one was in his 20s, wanting an older woman because they were more experienced???? 35 years older??? Sheesh! Everyone looking seems to want someone to do outdoorsy things with, or whatever, and marriage, none of that is me. I just want friends, to go and do things with now and then, go off on a weekend trip, have a drink, whatever. A friend told me about Meetup.com and I like the idea of it, lots of different groups, so I'll probably go that route at some point, but basically, I just keep busy and feel like you do, that if God wants me to find "someone" then it will happen. I take jewelry classes, glass classes, have a space at the antique mall, and am looking into getting an EBay site. I have a big house and yard and lots of animals (2 dogs and 7 cats), so it all keeps me fairly busy, even so I do get lonely now and then, but it's short lived and better than ending up with the wrong person. I'm fairly happy, and while things could be better, they could also be worse. I'm pretty open-minded so wouldn't mind meeting the right person, and maybe that will happen someday, I mean I'm not dead yet, so anything is possible, until then I'll just keep busy and try to enjoy life, and that's the best advice I could give anyone who's looking.

    RE: Being Single

    Hi I was in similar situation. I wanted to be with someone as a couple. But when I stopped concentrating on this (advice of friend) and started thinking about what I enjoyed doing or might like to do it all changed. I joined a couple of groups one was walking which I love another was a book club getting together to talk about particular book we read. I made some good friends and connections for a happy life eventually meeting my now partner (who shares my passion for walking) that was 12 years ago. Create a fulfilling life it all fell into place for me.

    RE: Being Single

    Hello anonymous,
    I can relate with being single and hating it. Dating sites are nothing like when we were younger. I'm in PA & 47, if u feel like chatting online. My email is: melh_ @ hotmail. com, but just take out the spaces. Hopefully there are other non-crazy ppl out there in the same "boat" as us!

    Ttyl,
    Single cat lady in PA
