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?
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.
You put into words some of my 'on again & off again' venting emotions! While I am, for the majority of the time, OK with my aloneness, I tend to get impatient with be 'alone'.
I have decided that I am going to spend Valentine's Day evening going to our parish's 7pm Mass and then be with Jesus in front of the Blessed Sacrament. What better place to be and to pour out my to Him!!
Blessings to you
