I gave up on online dating this year. Even if I meet someone online I cant meet them IRL with covid so whats the point. I may come back to it later but its tough when you don’t work. The most common thing people ask is “what do you do”. Shortly followed by “where are you living”. And both my answers to those questions just aren’t desirable.

My attitude has shifted toward accepting that I’m perennially single and probably will be going forward.

I have noticed phases, but this time, I think my body is slowing down too, or more to the point - I have less desires, or simply just urges…

I still wonder if I’ll blush in front of a woman while she’s far younger than I, like when I’m in my 60s… But I think I’m safe from those occurrences… I just remember them!

Fears of FEELING like a ‘dirty old man’ are what I’m talking about! Lololol.

im single, happily single, but havent ruled out a relationship. i have a thing for miranda, a women from my hometown, at the moment, but i haven’t seen her in a year. last time we spoke, she was also single, but i didn’t hit on her. she gave me a hug and it was cordial. im not the most desirable choice though, having to live in subsidized housing in the future, and not willing to work more than 10 or 15 hours a week. kids are out of the picture for me, so that is another thing working against me. i don’t want to and have never tried online dating, i prefer meeting people in real life, but i no longer go to parties or bars, so i rarely socialize. and the thought of hitting on a women at church, just seems like would send me straight to hell. although i’ve had people like my caseworker tell me, church is a good place to meet someone.

i’ll probably hit it off with someone when im in an old folks home haha.

Divorced and will never be in a relationship again. No desire in the slightest.

Both yes and no. I want to be in a relationship, but I’m struggling to find stability to be up for it. Have to be able to manage my own life before I invite someone else into it I feel.

I am single. Do look at dating sites occasionally, but I am happy single, and can afford to live at the moment

All is good here.

Not sure I’d find someone willing to put up with me to be fair!

Have been single for so long, I probably have some habits from living alone for nearly 5 years.

Same here I have never been in a relationship. And I dont think I’ll ever be in one either because I’m just not desirable. Especially now that I have my mental illness

I’m single by choice. I’ve had suitors, but I don’t want to do the whole “I’m lonely and you’re lonely, let’s be less lonely together” thing because it only turns toxic.

I don’t really have room in my life for a partner anyways.
