Maybe, who knows? To not at least try is to give up in life. God helps those who helps themselves, not those who quit. Attitude is everything, so when loneliness and dispair hit you, remember God is with you and you are not alone, ever. I struggle with loneliness as well, but I can always remember that He is with me and find peace.

Hi Bob

Valerie was 16 years younger than me

She had her PhD and I had some College

We lived 600 miles apart

I had 9 children she had 3

She was beautiful I was (Well you decide)

We both were self employed

That is just some of the junk that had to be discarded as it had no bearing on our spiritual and emotional relationship. We just had to get to the basics of us

Still, I believe this is a terrific resource (not the only one) for fellowship, and learning to better understand ourselves and the (Catholic) process to finding our futures. We just need to beware of the modern tendency to expect fast results - especially from electronic environs!
nicely said David.... and to add,, i believe disappointment is from our own unrealistic expectations and wants. If we stop and think how often we have found joy in unexpected experiences we'll come to realize that we have to sometimes let go of those "too defined" expectations and just give someone a chance. biggrin Praying

I'm recently back here after about 2 years of absence. Still not much luck in making new friends. I'm not so sure if I'll ever meet someone here but if it is God's will then it will happen :)

Love this Joan! Reading posts like yours helps to remind me not to set those (sometimes high) EXPECTATIONS when using this site. I am slowly learning to appreciate anyone I come into contact with (which is not many). I certainly do not want to 'tunnel-vision' myself.

Hope you are surviving this massive heat there in AZ!!

Thank you Philip. Yes, just get to the basics.

IF true love is found, forget about all the junk. From Collin Raye's "Not That Different" ...
I laugh, I love, I hope, I try
I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry
And I know you do the same things too
So we're really not that different, me and you

I like Marges comment. I met my Connie and married her after 5 weeks. That marriage lasted 35 years of absolute joy. Cancer took her away in 2007.

I joined CM and met many wonderful and beautiful women. I met Valerie and it took about 5 months for us to become engaged. 600 miles created a logistic problem but we married regardless of Distance, Educational level, Age difference or Financial Structure. We were absolutely happy and planned to move to Ireland (On a 6 Month Visa) to Write several books on subjects that interested us. March 23rd of this year Valerie Died in a home accident.

We had 5 1/2 months of beautiful joy and spiritual Blessings. My point is forget the junk and just go for it. You would be amazed at the absolute joy can be had with a little effort.

I invite all to visit my Bio and be encouraged with life. God love all and keep you safe

Philip
