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.
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 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!!
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?

Some things to look out for if you want to try online dating.Remember, these sites are businesses, there to make money, not to find you love. I have tried several, all the same, even the so-called free ones, will want you to pay to access members.Okay, so you take the leap and wow, you get loads of hits on your profile, messages too. You answer, but get few replies...why? Because many of them are fake profiles. this could make you disillusioned, worse than what you were..I am a male, 68 and considered okay, I do not have 2 heads, so thought someone may be interested...anyway. the warnings..guys and ladies,if you see a username with a number such as "honeybun12345" its a dodgy one, from members usually in Eastern Europe, who will want you to give them your personal email or direct you to another site, they want your bank details, avoid.Don't confuse this with a genuine member who puts their date of birth after their name such as "sue220954". The crooks put numbers with the usernames, to keep tracks of their input profiles. also, avoid all messages saying "hey there" same crooks.Guys - if the ladies look as if they have just appeared in a glossy mag, they probably have fake pics. ladies, if the guy falls in love with you after a few chats, ask yourself, are you really that irresistible?Don't be taken in, that he is in the US military and moves about, don't send money for their sick kids or for airfare, so he can come to visit you. common sense, yes, but we all need to believe and it's easy to think people are as honest as ourselves.Good luck. Forgive any typing mistakes, have my damaged right hand in a splint at the mo.
Hi anyone out there. Has anyone used the Silversurfers dating site recently? If so I would be interested to hear from you about your experiences, as I have just paid up for 3 months. Here's hoping I get some replies lol
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.
