No love life

I do not feel like I need a man to be happy, but I have been feeling lonely a lot lately. I have tried dating off and on the past few years with virtually no luck. I went on one date and it was awful (we watched the news...politics that I did not agree with) for an hour.

Really the only places I can meet people are work and dating sites. I can not go out often or late at night due to my babysitting situation. No one at work (that is single and willing to date someone with a kid) interests me . That left me to online dating...which hadn't worked out either

I have only had one official boyfriend. Ever. Then my daughters father, who i was never technically dating. I feel like I am destined to be a cat lady and die "alone"

Had anyone ever been in a similar situation? Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong?

Quoting kkat117:

Have friends set you up, join a single parents group, get involved in a church group, try a different dating site. I'm like you and happy single, so I've chosen the fwb route for the first time in many years and its working out great.

I was a single mom of 3 little ones, i dated a couple guys after my divorce (keeping in mind i was married @ 18 & prego), i divorced @ mid 20's. Any way i was like you & didn't know where to start. None of my dates worked well until my bro hooked me up w one of his friends. Been together 3 yrs now 4 kids combined.

I'm happy being single because that's about my option too and I work with all women if it happens it happens

I was just wondering today if I will be alone for the rest of my life. (okay I was actually wondering if I'll ever have sex again). :(

OMG, I worry too about being a 'cat lady' w a drawer full of vibrators.
I have been separate from H since early summer 2012, and I have only been on one date. And, sexless for a year :(

I think about just finding a FWB, but that is super unlike me. I was w my H for 17 yrs...and never cheated.

If you continue to try and get out and makes friends and stay busy you will end up meeting someone.  That's the point OF finding someone.  Join church groups, go to meetup.com.  Check into DivorceCare.  You will meet new people (like I did) and more than likely make new friends via FB connections (like I did).  Sitting at home and feeling sorry for yourself won't help.  Get out even if it's by yourself.  Call your gf and get some GNO's started.

i tried different dating sites and had no luck...did date one guy for almost a year, but in the end he was a flake...I gave up at that point and once i stopped trying i was introduced to my current BF, and we are talking marriage/kids!!

I'm in the same boat...I'm a single SAHM so of 3 (I do in home daycare) so I'm sure my chances of meeting a man are slim. I have really been enjoying being single for the most part but there are nights I wish I had someone there with me. I'm sure you aren't destined to be alone...it will happen in time and when you least expect it.
