I am one who is very young-spirited, open-minded, friendly, patient and kind, and very down-to-earth. I find myself in somewhat or a strange place in life; my son (one child) is a grown, independent adult, I’m divorced, no grandchildren, and absolutely no family around me. I’d like to find a “mate“, “companion“, “boyfriend“, or whatever you want to call it. However, because I feel young and think young, I find men my age and older seem to look old, dress old, and “act old“. Younger men, of course, are primarily seeking younger, more fit and attractive women. I’m just wondering if any of you can relate to what I’m saying. It’s like I don’t really fit in anywhere.....fortunately, I’m blessed with great female friends who are always there for me no matter what. I’m finding there are many women in their 50’s who are in similar situations. We all thought we’d still be married and enjoying the golden years...lol lol; playing with grandchildren, and enjoying retirement. Instead, we‘re single, out of work, broke, and don’t know which way to turn. I AM going to school to study what’s always interested me, and doing whatever personal growth and self-improvement I can to remain confident during these rather unusual and difficult times.
