During that time though I began to make friends in the forums,and have fun..lighten the mood :smile
The second month was easier settling into letter writing with friends, having chats,and being in the forums.
Now I am chatting and messaging with a very nice man,taking things as they come.
Perhaps for most people the first month is the busiest and the hardest?
I have prayed diligently and I think God is telling me no. That is hard to accept, but will work on doing just that. Widowhood is a lonely, lonely life; wish it could be different.
Thank you for your post. I know it can be discouraging, especially when a person you're interested in doesn't respond in kind. I tell myself that timing is everything. It may seem unproductive right now, but every note that you send out and every response that you receive is preparing you for that special person.
I think it takes great courage to send this type of post, and it takes much faith. It takes faith because you're remaining on a site that, although has not yet yielded dividends on a potential relationship, it's keeping you connected to your faith and to God.
Continue to put yourself out there and know that your post inspires others who could be experiencing the same thing that you are to stay the course. I know that someone very special - in God's time - will see your gifts and uniqueness.
This is at least my 3rd time on the site, and I'm only on here now because someone paid for my subscription. And I do find it discouraging when I search profiles, and they are the same people who were on before with just a few exceptions. Just keep praying, and God will show you the way!!
