Am i a loser for online dating old guys dating young girls
People always ask me why I am still single, I get all the popular comments, like “Oh, that’s a shame, still single at your age”. There is nothing wrong with me, I’m athletic, been told I am attractive, outgoing, and I enjoy sports, and all sorts of out door activities, and have a great circle of friends, so why after all this time have I not met anyone? I’ve dated on and off for a few months to a year, only to have things crash and burn for one reason or another. I’ve tried the online dating, only to become seriously jaded by it all. I’m tired of friends telling me that when I least expect it, I will meet someone great, well, I have not been expecting it, and it never came. 🙁 Dear Lauren, I’m reminded of a story that Rich Gosse, the founder of American Singles, once shared with me.

‘Well, there are a number of people out there who are socially awkward.
There are a number of people who are somewhat weak and needy.
And if she dumped me, I wouldn’t suddenly get dumber.
All of this is me saying that there’s nothing wrong with being single.
…Despite the title of my second book, , being single is a fine state of affairs.
I’ve been that way for 35 years and frankly, I’m a little anxious about getting married.
That said, most single people (including myself) DO want to get married.
