I'm 38, female and I've been single for just over 6 months now. I was in 2 relationships for many years and the last one was on and off for a couple of years but I finished it last year as it was going nowhere.
Due to my age I feel like I'll probably be single for a good while if not forever and I need to know how to come to terms with this completely. I'm fine with being single right now (apart from the celibacy, I DO NOT enjoy that at all!!) but I'd prefer to not be single forever. I think once you're over a certain age in this country you can kinda forget it. I'm not into online dating (can't stand the thoughts of it) so I'm not doing anything to find someone. I get on great with men and def think they are attracted to me...its just that they are all unavailable (in my workplace at least).
I'm pretty happy 90% of the time but sometimes I can get a bit low during that other 10% of the time and feel lonely (hate to admit that).
So how do I get past this? Does it get better with time? I'm still only kinda newly single.
