I was in a game room this evening and the chat was about an older man (60) whom was rejected by a woman in her 40's. Apparently, she honestly told him, he was too old for her. He was complaining about her rejection of him. Sixty years old may not be old to some women and it will be to others. How can he complain when she was honest with him? People rant and rave all over about all the liars and cheats they find online and yet, when they hear the truth, they don't want to hear it.
Personally, I quit looking. For younger, for older, for any man. No one is going to want a woman with a child such as mine. One whom I am not sure won't always be living with me. I can't go anywhere on the spur of the moment. My mentality is no longer that as a sex object but as only a MOM. Somewhere along the way, I lost myself. I am no longer here for me, I am here for her. Do I resent it? Sometimes. Then I say to myself, I'm not losing me. I'm gaining another version of me.
I just hope that most of these unhappy people online find their happiness. If they don't, learn to accept what is there and make the most of it or change it. It's up to us in the long run anyway, right?
