    Best thing I can give you as advice is, embrace your loneliness! Get comfortable in your company. I feel very lonely at times, I’ve Ben single 13 years, I have friends and children. Though I share a lot of my life with them, I can’t share certain things like I’d be able with a man in my life. I’ve come to except over the years that though being lonely sucks, it’s better to be on my own, then with someone who isn’t right just doe the sake of having someone. My escape from it is reading, it keeps my mind busy and stops me from feeling sorry for myself when the loneliness kicks in. You’ll find your thing to help manage it. But it’s in you, not anyone else. Hope this helps x

    No, he was the only man I ever introduced to my children (my eldest is almost 18 now and my other child, almost 15) I won’t be doing that again. You see, it was a very big step for me to take anyway. Thank you for your time and your words, I really appreciate that Anita.

    I’ve learned I won’t ever trust a man again, I’ve learned that no matter how much I try, I’m not built to be with anyone, it hurts far too much to allow someone into my heart just to have them rip it out because they’re too selfish. I’ve known this man a long time and honestly believed he cared for me, I would have never risked myself otherwise. So it’s very hard to believe there is any man out there for me.

    I had my children very young with a man who was very abusive. I chose to stay single and raise my children alone. The reason why I accepted his reasoning about not wanting to go out because of his weight, well I trusted him and his words of love for me. He knew I hadn’t any experience with relationships, he said he understood my behavior of trying to push him away and he promised he was going to stay with me.

    Sorry, what I meant was, I’d always make time for him, accommodate him in my home. I am a bit of a contradiction, I’d push him away, by questioning everything, why didn’t he want to go out with me, why always my place, I’d get really upset and angry, and tell him it’s not working out. I’m not happy. He would always either call round or call me to convince me to try. I felt very wanted when he was with me and confused and unwanted when he wasn’t, I hope I’m making sense?
