I’m fed up with be­ing alone


Iam 70 years young and have been di­vorced since 1975. My heart was so bro­ken that I never got mar­ried again. As I get older, I feel in­creas­ingly lonely and would love a com­pan­ion to go on hol­i­day with, or even just out for din­ner. I’ve got a lovely niece, but she has her own life and it’s not the same. I would like to find some­one, but I’m from the old school of dat­ing and would never go on­line. How else can I meet some­one? Eva, Lon­don I un­der­stand your fears about go­ing on­line. If I were in your po­si­tion, I’d be use­less at on­line dat­ing! I agree with you that, as you get older, you want com­pan­ion­ship. But, in or­der to meet peo­ple, you have to get out and about, be­cause they aren’t just go­ing to come to you. I’ve got a friend who swears by ball­room danc­ing – why not try get­ting up close and per­sonal, like they do on

Strictly Come Danc­ing? Find a hobby you re­ally en­joy, and hope­fully you will meet some­one while you’re do­ing it.
