After going through a devastating divorce about two years ago, I moved back to my hometown. Since my return I haven’t had any relationships with men, and I just want to know – will I EVER be happy in a relationship again?
Other parts of my life are satisfactory (though my finances are awfully tight). I just wish I could find a man who cared about me. I am not looking to be married again. I am just kind of lonely – I miss touching another person and being touched. I was born on 7/13/52 in Syracuse. Thank you.
Life after divorce can be a tough adjustment, and getting back out into the dating game even more challenging. But, getting back out there is the key!
I don’t see you facing the rest of your life alone, but I do see that there will be more than one relationship for you to explore in your quest of finding a companion. While you may not be looking for marriage, it will eventually be staring you right in the face. This time around, it will work.
Even though this is not your future husband, you have a “practice man” coming your way in late December of this year. He presents as a very nice man, one that you are compatible with. He is most likely a widower or has an ex-wife who has passed away. I think you meet him at a party or social event that is being held in a large room or a banquet hall. It may even be a wedding reception. So, be sure to accept any invitations that come your way!
This is gentle relationship based on mutual interests and respect but it is not going to blossom into fiery love. It is two people coming together in order to restore faith in romance once again, which opens the doors for each of you to find the people you are meant to be with. It’s really rather sweet.
