do you think i'll ever meet a man if i have 2 kids, no family and work fulltime?

i am separated from get this: a major depressive disorder, severe alcoholic, in mid forties, abusive all the ways, husband. this may be permanent, or long-term temporary at best. if it lasts, hwo will i ever meet someone or let that person find me? i dont want anything frivolous. i dont see how it would ever happen but i really dont mind because i am over the whole love thing now. i want to be strogn and smart for my children. i will be 40 in the fall and feel old and dumb to want to go out even tho i am extremely attractive and petite. who knows. what do you say?

  • I think that you'll meet might be a littler tricky or atleast different than it was pre-hubby and pre-kids. There is someone out there for everyone, just try and be patient and he'll show up one way or another. Keep your head up girl! :)

  • I feel the same way sometimes. I think it'll happen, just takes time and patience.
