I guess I don't understand why people get so worked up about being alone on Valentine's day. It is just another day in the big scheme of things.

Try dealing with the loneliness and sadness of losing a spouse through death. Now that's what I call being truly alone.

Cheer up.....

Yup -- it's been commercialized with a lot of hype. It's a good way to sell chocolates, greeting cards, and other gifts. It's never bad to give recognition to your Sweetie, but that can be (and should be) done every day.

One needs to be strong even when alone. It'll help one become stronger when the right time comes.

Don't abandon hope. If it's meant to be, it will happen. Although you feel alone now, it could amount to being saved from a worse fate -- being paired with the wrong person and not realizing it or finding out until it's too late.

With Valentine's day coming up, I was just wondering what folks not in a relationship would be up to. I might try to get together with some friends, either on the actual day or maybe on the weekend. Or maybe I'll treat myself to something nice.


On Valentine's day(as well as other times) how do people cope with being lonely? I'm sure this topic was (and is) being covered in other forums, so I do apologize if I am repeating this. I'm feeling very discouraged, having grown tired of ignored emotigrams, email conversations that stop out of the blue(ok, said other person may have met someone else, but when will it be my turn?) When I am in a better frame of mind about this, I think that there are as many ways to meet people as there are people.


But does it seem like everyone around you is pairing up right and left?

If there is something I can do to my profile and or pictures, I will. But as far as my looks, sorry, it's what God gave me, and God doesn't make junk.


As far as pics, I'm more than a little challenged with getting new pics taken and on computer. I have a CD coming from a trip I took in Las Vegas, but I don't know when I will get them because the friend putting the CD together is very busy. Once I have the CD, I do know what to do with it.

I've heard folks that met on here say they never got discouraged. Um, really? NEVER? Come on, not once? People who met on here also have given advice on searching for their mate. Wonderful pointers. But the thing is, some people have been doing these very things for years and still have not found their special person.


I want to get to a point where I either find the right person or be ok with being alone. Will continue to put myself out there, and if I end up alone, I at least know I tried . Thanks for the chance to vent.

I've heard "Loneliness is a state of mind" .. If you're not in that state, you won't mind! laughing laughing laughing

Keep busy and don't allow myself the time to dwell on it. With 2 jobs and being in 15 activity groups with always something to do this isn't very hard.
