Day 423

The Dating Dilemma

Proposition: It would be nice to have a regular partner, someone with whom you could come home and have dinner and review your day, someone with whom you can travel and share experiences; a person who supports you when you're blue and shares in your joys.

Proposition: Trying to find this person later in life is very, very difficult. When you're young, you're less encumbered. You may have a career, but it's not your life; you may have family, but you're not a full-time caregiver, you may live somewhere, but you don't expect it to be forever.....

Proposition: Most women aren't really free. They have to work harder to earn their money, they have to spend more time with their kids, they have more responsibilities to parents and friends, and then there are those who truly believe their pets are like their children....

Proposition: Finding that partner is like entering the lottery. The chances of success are very, very slim. You can go on lots and lots of dates for years and years and have nothing to show for it.

Proposition:Participating in the lottery with the hope of success is futile, at best.

Proposition: So is dating. But what are the alternatives?

    Don't give up, Rav. I'm interested you don't mention sex which has been the making and unmaking of your relationships in the past. I can see how difficult it is for you and I'm really sorry. It's not an easy one. I always think that if I were alone I'd pursue my interests and meet people that way - we'd meet cycling, in the gym, on top of a mountain, in an art gallery, in a painting class... something like that. I know there are a lot of lonely, vibrant women out there and one of them might be right for you so just keep sifting. xx
