Losing a love

I lost a "boyfriend." I met him online almost a year ago, and we went out a couple of times this summer. We have talked everyday since, either online or on the phone. But whenever it seemed like we were getting close, he would push me away with hurtful words. I feel guilty talking about this loss, but it hurts too, and I need help to stop thinking about him. We are senior citizens, and that's another thing that makes me feel so bad. The chances of me meeting someone else is pretty slim.

You will find someone else
by: Sue

I know this feels sad for you but this is just part of life. We meet so many people during our lives - when we are younger we accept that many people pass through our lives, shaping us, enriching us, teaching us, often hurting us - when they leave us we have learned from the experiences they gave us.. However, the older we got the more we feel we have to grasp at each chance of happiness that comes our way, regardless of the source, forgetting that even in later years, not every person we meet is destined to remain in our lives or be good for us.
There will be someone else for you, I guarantee it.
Keep looking and remain happy,
Sue x

Losing Love
by: Judith

Dear losing, you didn't loose a love on his part. You were sucked in by his lies and deceit. I bet he came on real strong right away which is a warning sign. I believe that God will put someone in your life at the right time. But, If you don't put yourself out there like go to dinner clubs or social events you won't find someone. The online dating scene is full of fraudulent folks who lie about their age, looks and marital status. They all aren't that way but the honest ones are few. I joined Seniorpeoplemeet.com and most of those folks don't lie with their pictures. I have had so many guys interested in me because of my picture but they respond out of my age range or out of state so I don't bother responding back. If they can't read my profile instead of being pulled in by my looks I don't respond to them. I'm picky and will not settle for less than what I need in a person. Being desperate to meet someone clouds your judgement. I'd rather be alone than be with the wrong type of guy. Thank God you didn't have more time invested in him.

Please don't beat yourself up because he wasn't honest. He is a jerk and not worthy of your sadness.
