Hi all mentors
I am a 57 year old woman, divorced and living a full and interesting life except for the lack of a close loving relationship. I realize I am far from alone in this situation and there are many people with far worse problems. However I would love to hear from other women and men who may be facing the same issue or have previously been there. I have many friends, mostly female, and close relationships with my adult kids.
I have made mistakes and bad judgements and been hurt by a few dishonest and insensitive men. I have tried Internet dating sites, a professional introduction agency , and the oft recommended ''join a bush walking club''! Any ideas really welcome, mentors !
