Hi Vdogg, I am so sorry if I said something that discouraged you. I need to clarify what I mean about my loneliness. It hasn't been something that has affected my whole life. I guess what I mean is I have had various times of loneliness in my life but it was never a constant thing. It was during times like when I got divorced and when my Mom passed away, but those are times when one does tend to feel sad or lonely. I guess when I posted I was at a very low point and was letting too much negativity get into the way. I am missing my son because he is gone for the summer but he will be back in Aug. And I probably will wish he was gone again
(lol). Do not give up hope in meeting someone. As Karen said it happens when you least expect it. Yes, I have been divorced for sometime and I didn't remarry but that was out of my choice. I have had several relationships over the years but I really did not want to be married anymore. The opportunity was there but I did then and do now prefer being on my own. That's not to say that I don't have male
companionship because I do. They are friends who I can get together with for a movie or dinner. My son is 36 and he has only had one girl friend and only had a few other dates. But I have told him when he worries about getting married that it will happen because he is open to it. So much has to do with ones attitude towards the goals they hope to achieve. You are young and you will have opportunities. If you can join a group or find activities that involve men and women you can make friends and who knows you can meet. Doing something like joining a volley ball league or softball or soccer is a good place to meet people. I know it takes effort but it pays off in the end. Do you go to church?
Many people who go to church meet others and they may have a group for young adults. Please know that I care and that I hope you will feel better about yourself. I know you are a good and valuable person and you can come here anytime and have friends who will respond to you. This is a very caring group and even though I am older there are friends here of all ages. Try to take good care of yourself.
Just another note to say most young people now a days are getting married much later, in their late 20s or 30s. So please don't be discouraged.
