I am lonely. It is one of the unexpected effects of divorce. When I first got divorced, I knew it would take some time to get over it, to become accustomed to the new reality, to figure out what it was I wanted out of the next phase of my life. I was 40. I thought I had time. Now, I worry the window closed.
I do date from time to time, but nothing ever seems to last. Most of the time, it feels more like an awkward job interview that does not result in an offer. It can be insidious too - the more things do not work, the more I want to chase finding something (and someone) who will, the more they do not work, and on and on.
