I was married for a couple of years when I was younger and am now 57 years old. My spouse and I had two children, but then he realised he was ***. This occurred thirty years ago, and I've been single ever since, whereas he has since gotten married and departed the country.
It did not deter me from dating other males, so I have always gone out alone or with friends. It can be difficult at times, such as on vacation when I am the only woman eating brunch alone. I am certain that people murmur about me. Shirley Valentine, I'm coming!
Numerous pastimes allow me to meet new people, but I have never encountered anyone special.
I'm typically the only Black woman (in the village, if you will) and I'm just under 6 feet tall and on the heavier side, so I stand out wherever I go. I'm also incapacitated now, which is yet another obstacle that hinders my progress. I've attempted online dating, but the only men I seem to attract are over 70 years old, which is not for me. I have no idea what else to do.
Thirty years is a very long time to not hold someone's hand, let alone for any other reason. Many years have passed, and I'm still in the same position.
I've lived in approximately seven distinct residences over the years, and I've never had sexual relations in any of them.
My friends can't believe I'm still single, as I have a wonderful personality, am very funny, and am a beautiful woman.
Any advice is appreciated.
