EndlessNemesis Posted November 7, 2017 Share Posted November 7, 2017 I'm about a week away from my 32nd birthday and I have more or less been single now for 6 and a half years (my previous relationship lasted 4 years). During this time I have dated, had flings and even one relationship which was official for all of 3 months before it fell apart. A couple of months ago I dated a girl for 5 weeks and I was crazy about her but then suddenly she changed her mind about me and basically ghosted me. I hardly ever meet women that I really like enough to date or see a future with, I find it difficult because I own a small business and everyone I work with are 20 or so years older than me with wives and kids. I moved away from my friends to be closer to work and I don't know anyone where I live. In January I broke up with a short-term girlfriend and I was so depressed and desperate that I joined some groups as a way of meeting new people. I made some new friends who I see sometimes and a few of the women have flirted/expressed an interest in dating me. Unfortunately I'm just not attracted to them, even though they are nice enough people. I have a good job and make good money, have a nice place, have lots of friends (although they don't live nearby)... However I feel so dissatisfied with my life as I'm lonely, almost every evening I go home to an empty house. I've been told by lots of women that I am so handsome/good looking and I generally consider myself to be a fun, positive person as well as very kind and caring. Somehow despite all this, on the rare occasions I meet someone that I'm attracted to and who feels the same way about me - it never lasts longer than a few months. All of my friends and family are partnered up and I feel like there's something wrong me with, that I'm unwanted. I've become so depressed recently that I have lost all motivation to do anything. I wake up every morning on my own and go to sleep every night on my own and it seems like nothing ever changes or ever will. Should I just accept that this is my life, that some of us are destined to be alone? Or do I need to lower my standards and date someone that I'm not really attracted to? I'd welcome any insights into what I'm doing wrong. Link to comment
