I have been thinking a lot about this lately. I have been divorced now for almost 15 years now. I had dated quite a bit after my divorce. However, in the last 6 or 7 years, I completely stopped dating.
The reason that this has been on my mind is because I am nearing the scary age of 40 (this October). I am way overweight and need to really lost a lot of weight. I am more then 100 pounds overweight. Plus with my health issues, it just doesn’t make it easy.
I miss having someone to go out with. I miss waiting for them to call. I miss getting excited as they are on their way to pick me up. I just miss the thrill of dating. I also miss just knowing that someone is there. I am just afraid that if I wait too long that I will end up alone for the rest of my life.
