I am Single but all my Friends are in Relationships! (I have no one to go out with.)

Dear Sybersue,

I am so happy to have found you on YouTube and your videos answer many of my questions about dating & relationships! Although, I haven’t seen one that can help me with my question.  That is the reason I am here on your advice column/blog asking for advice. (I hope you will film one regarding this issue for other people as well.)

Here is my question:

I am a 38 year old woman who wants to meet someone special to have a committed partnership with but I have no single friends to go out with.

All of my friends are in relationships and I am tired of being the 3rd wheel! It makes me feel like I am a burden to them and that they feel obligated to let me tag along. (Or they feel sorry for me which is even worse!) I appreciate their support but I think it is wearing thin on them. I try not to complain but sometimes I just can’t help it.

How do I get up the courage to go out alone? How can I meet new people?

Part of the problem is I am at the “in between” stage of being too old to for some venues and too young for others! I am at a loss of where I can go out for the evening and not feel insecure because I am by myself.

Every time I try to force myself out the door I become anxious and fearful of how others will look at me. So once again I stay in my condo watching TV every evening.

I have tried online dating and find that it is more work than it is worth for the most part. It lacks the sincerity of meeting someone face to face and I find many people are just talk. It’s very annoying to me when I have to spend so much time chatting with one person that I never even end up meeting!

What is with that anyway? How do people have so much time on their hands to do this cat & mouse dating game?

I am still hoping that I may be able to have children one day but I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I may have to do this on my own eventually. I am OK with that but it would be nice to meet a man who would like to have children. I am also not opposed to him having children from a previous relationship.

Although I hate going out by myself, I am depressed staying home all the time! I am very lonely & frustrated. What should I do?

Thank you! Angela 🙂

Don’t Fake who you are to be in a Relationship!

Talk Show Host Susan McCord & Guest Co-Host Andrea Wesley talk about a subject in this video that seems to affect so many people today.

Are you faking who you are just to be in a new relationship? Are you frustrated out there in the dating market and fed up with things not working out in your love-life?

Dating today is as annoying as Hell and some men and women have all but given up on the whole concept of finding a lasting partnership. The big problem with this is; people are not being authentic to who they truly are, because it doesn’t seem to work!

Let the games begin!

Both sexes start acting the way they think someone would be attracted to them; therefore losing themselves in the process.

How long can you play the role of someone you’re not?

Learn to stay true to yourself to attract someone else who is also true to them self. It can be a long road trying to meet that person you have a genuine and reciprocated desire to be with; but in the end it is better to be in a REAL relationship than being in one that is made up of a phoney pretense.

You are a great person just the way you are and don’t change anything just to please someone else. Take your time and don’t give up on love because it is there and available for you when you are ready to accept and be the true version of yourself.
