Carl; If you can let that thought go, keep your mind on other thing's like Jesus and prayer, involvement in church related functions or volunteering at events etc, etc. you are sure to find someone. A man in his 40's is still very young. Don't give up but don't dwell on it!

Susan, these are perfect additions to all the other suggestions!


I especially like the last one about being judged. When we can't share our truest feelings, needs & problems with someone that denotes a lack of intimacy & signals the downfall of a relationship. To actually experience non-judmental listening, well...that's when love is truly expressed.

Sometimes men like to "fix things" & haven't learned how to really listen without giving solutions. All we women need is to vent sometimes, know that someone is empathizing with us, will give us a warm hug when we need it, the assurance that it will work out (without condensation), showing confidence that we have the knowledge, experience and/or power to persevere all the while letting us know that we can rely on them for whatever help we need.

That's because most men are goal oriented and view helpfulness as being able to fix something. It's not that we don't want to listen, it's that we want to be useful, and accomplish something! I do understand though because some of my guy friends are clueless and if they don't have the solution (eeks in some cases it's unsolvable) they bury their heads in the sand.
