I’m married to a 78 YO man and am not happy. This is my second marriage and I married him because I was on the rebound and lonely.Now 19 years later I’m so unhappy. Is it too late to start over again?I’m 65 and not happy.
I am a 65-year-old man who is realizing that after 30 years as a contributing professional - even partial retirement took away a large part of my connections being single things from casual intimacy going out to dinner chatting online has been altered.I am realizing I need this connection I miss more of the female connection- not necessarily sexually but the intimacy of listening, talking laughing.This is my first try at seeking this missing piece. I have my family grandkids businessThanks for giving my post a look!!
Hello everyone, Yes I am feeling alone, I have been a Parent a Single Parent and a Step-Parent, wow you say, well yes.I married, and we had a child, then after the second child my wife died leaving me with two children one aged 5 months the other 14 months old, we survived until my girls were about 4 and 5 and I met and got married to another single parent whose girls were aged 12 and 14.We were together for about 25 years and we are now separated on friendly terms, but both living very different lives.I live in a one bedroomed flat and feel very lonely at the moment, I know that this Covid-19 does not help my situation but it's like this all the time, virus or no virus, I still talk to my daughters and we Facetime each other often as we still have that special bond, and they are not happy that I am on my own.I am finding it very difficult to go out to meet someone as I don't feel good enough or good looking enough to make someone else happy. I have registered on Silversurfing dating but I really don't feel that it is as good as it says it is, and feel that there are a number of Sharks just waiting for me to fall into those waters and be eaten alive, so any advice would help.Thank you in advance.
I wonder if anyone has had any experience of lies being told about them on social media?In this case, a woman is claiming to be a victim abused and harassed by the father of her baby. In fact she is now refusing to let him see the child, despite promises to the contrary. She has repeatedly blocked him from sending texts and messages and he has respected this throughout her pregnancy. During the time he had contact copies of his texts show nothing but care and concern for her health and a wish to be a good father. She allowed him to see the child once and again once for the half siblings who loved her while she was in a relationship with their father. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. Then the accusations and blocking began again and he is afraid to contact her in case she makes more accusations, upon which she accused him publicly of abandoning his child. Now she is posting photos of herself as a strong single mother who will bring up her child without the father and is refusing to name him on the birth certificate. He is devastated and his mental health is suffering.Does anyone know what can be done to help him be the father he wants to be to his child? Her cruelty to both him and the child is terrifying but she seems to have all the power.
I lost my husband 4 years ago in a car crash. I actually wasn't pressured to get back and date again.Lately, I feel the need to be loved and be with a man. Are there still good men out there or I should just forget about dating again, kindly advice?
My son's big wedding had to be postponed until next year. In the meantime they have arranged a small registry office wedding in a few weeks time.Until he met his fiancé I always had a very close relationship with my son but recently he has become more and more distant. I have tried my best to get along with his fiancé and have no idea why they are rejecting me. Due to Covid there are only limited numbers allowed at the registry office. My son's fiancé's mother, brother and his wife have been invited along with my daughter and her husband...but no invitation for me and I'm devastated!I'm trying not to let it bother me but it is so painful....I don't want this to affect my future relationship with them but I know it will.Does anyone have any advice?
The man = single - no girlfriend, in 60's, at work he finds me as soon as I arrive. He then finds me throughout the day. He has found out loads about me and shows a great deal of interest in me. He is an intensely private man and lives on his own.He remembers everything I tell him and he talks about me a lot. He says I make him nervous - he is a little shy.Me= widow in my 60's- like this man. He was in a really angry mood one day and I didn't realise. I asked him out and he said "I don't think so".Since this he has carried on asking about me and seeking me out at work. Recently, he asked whether I still visit my husband's grave which I thought was odd. He is so private that he doesn't always answer questions people ask him but we know he is definitely single, no GF, not gay, and lives alone.He seems to have had a very bad life via his mum/dad/siblings. What is this man up to? He constantly looks out for me and my safety. I like him but I am confused.Is he just playing silly games?I could do with some good, friendly advice.
