I have been divorced for two years now. I have not had one man interested in me. People tell me I am fun, pretty and loving. I am a good mother. I work hard inside and outside of my home. I have tried internet dating. I have asked for "fix ups". The bottom line is, for whatever reason, no man wants me.

I have given up on finding someone to love. My question is for anyone who has found herself in the same situation "How do you deal with the reality of being alone?". Seriously, I am only 36. I am too young for this.

I had completely stopped looking for some one and had come to terms with the idea of being alone when a friendship turned into something more. I was 42 and had a 15 year old, so age doesn't really matter. Developing good friendships, allowing myself to grow as a person and be happy with myself all helped me be content with my life. I think being happy and satisfied with life makes a person more appealing, but more importantly you are happy and satisfied.

It's vitally important to just get out of the house and meet people. Go to bars, even if it's not your thing, get used to it and make it your thing. Go to the people. Take the first steps and know that eventually things will fall into place.

I say that's better than having the wrong men interested in you :-)

Enjoy life. Try "meetup" type groups that get you together with others who share your interests. Start taking lessons to learn to play the musical instrument you've always wnated to play.
