I feel lonely. I kind of want to go back to online dating but I’ve never been successful dating that way. Anyone have experience with this?
What do you think of online dating? - Anxiety and Depre...
I have done one to learn how to solder, one about real estate because I volunteer with homeless people and I have a writing group because I am writing my first manuscript. Been doing more volunteer work and going to community events. Reached out to some friends I lost touch with. Mostly I am focused on social interaction. My anxiety prevented that for a long time but I am pushing past it now. Not all the time but way more
I think it's a viable option, in many ways.
Gives a person time to get to know someone a bit. may be better to socialize, as I dont think you can make a romantic connection just happen , but you never know.
Just be very careful, as many of us are extra vulnerable, and can be taken advantage of.
Good luck. I agree that its good to get out there.
That one success story is so appealing. I’ve heard those too. When I was dating heavily, I was a total mess, so I know my emotions impacted all of my interactions. I’m much different now, stronger but able to be vulnerable.
BTW I’m sure you don’t need a makeover. There is someone out there that will want you just as you are💛
Yes, that sounds like a healthy approach. I see people who look for companionship to fill a void, but a relationship usually can't fix that. By the way, I saw your weight and health post but I couldn't respond to it because I wasn't in the group. I just wanted to let you know you've done a great job and you look great! I actually have the opposite problem with food, where I can't eat if I'm stressed and that leads to all sorts of other health issues.
I read that it takes about an average of three years to recover from a divorce. It sounds like you might be ready to move to the next step. I thought about joining a dating site just now since my divorce was finalized 2 years ago and I almost panicked, so I'm definitely not ready. Keep us posted! I can live vicariously through you for now.
Sounds fun.. I never tried online dating but does this mean I can date everyone and anyone online.. how cool

I’ve done mostly online dating since my divorce. It was hard getting out there and investing all that time with two kids at home and working full time. I have been in a relationship for over two years now and we met on tinder. It can be a very anxiety inducing process. You just have to be aware of that
I couldnt go on a dating site after watching Adam Sandler's twin movie..
Love bucket oh hell no....
I’d say it’s a lottery online. I have guy friends addicted to it literally for girl crack !! I’ve made make friends on it. You can’t take it seriously & know they’re dating sleeping with other women. I was so naive at first. Not saying don’t do it. It’s just as you know you have to make them work for it. And they still might leave due to the crack mentality. & even organic dating you don’t know if they’re on line. It’s crazy how careful we have to be now. I think I met two nice guys great guys online in my attempts. Here’s to girl in control.
I think I was addicted to it for a while years ago. I loved the attention, especially when I felt really bad about myself. I started my profile yesterday and could see my selection criteria had changed. Day one felt better than before. I’m going to stay open and hopeful since I’m different then the process could be different 😊
I started a profile yesterday but I’m going to keep my goals of going out socially everyday. The one guy I communicated with yesterday was interested in knowing more about all my meetups and volunteer work. My writing and interests in comedy. This time I want to not rely on online dating but hopefully it enhances the fuller life I’m leading
I met my partner online it was literally love at first site we moved in together a month later and 18 months down the line I’m happier than ever and he’s so good with me constantly in pain or ill and really supports me. It’s not always disaster stories just be so so careful when meeting anyone. I told my best friend, told her where we were going and even text her his car registration number just in case. Have fun but just be careful and you might get just as lucky as I did good luck x
It’s a strange feeling especially because I went into it think he is not my type at all lol rock music moheikan etc etc but after talking for a few days he was really sweet so I thought well don’t judge a book by its cover and see how you get on and we connected instantly there were no awkward silences we laughed and chatted all night and it just felt right if that makes sense and we just couldn’t wait to see each other again. When we did 2 days later he asked me out lol and from then on we spoke to each other all night every night and we stayed together at weekends, he lived an hour away so after a month it was like why don’t we just get our own place and move I together and that’s what we did and we’ve been inseparable since lol. Don’t get me wrong we have our moments and argue but at the end of the day we always sort things out straight away and we both know how the other feels it’s nice to finally have that
Aww bless you believe me it really helps when u find that person I was with my ex for 8 years and I literally wish I wasn’t now when I think back over all the things I went through with him, whereas now I can literally be 100% myself and he loves me for who I am anger issues and all 😂😂😂 like even after 8 years with my ex I’d never walk round the house in shorts or anything like that because I have horrendous stretch marks on both my thighs yet now I practically live in pj shorts or night shirts and don’t even worry about my legs it’s a great feeling when u don’t have to worry about what the other person thinks and you can just be yourself because you know they love u no matter what and everyone deserves that and your mr right will come along maybe he’s just stuck in traffic lol x
