It’s sad when love goes

I confess that I’m feeling sad because I’m not in love anymore. It was like a constant that was always there, even though it was mostly heartbreaking. Now that I’ve realized that I don’t feel the same way about him, letting it go for one last time feels bittersweet. Now I have to get my mind wrapped around the idea of meeting someone new for the first time in so long. It’s daunting but exhilarating all at once. Single guys in your 50’s, I’m looking for you!

You should.

Stay with your wife, that is, and stop trolling older men to make you feel good about yourself...or to make up for your daddy issues.

In the same boat

I am in my 20s and haven't been in a relationship yet but have had many crushes. One of my most recent ones was my friend who is a few years older than me. I thought he liked me back and it turns out he didn't and was just friendly. I wish I would have known this all along to avoid disappointment months ago. At least he was nice about it and we are still friends even though he moved away.

My current crush is probably closer to my age and I wish I would have had the courage to start talking to him earlier than I did, but there's still some time if I ever become more confident. It's weird because sometimes I'm confident (mostly around people I know) and other times I am very shy (especially around guys and people I don't know that well, etc.) looking away even though I think he is really handsome and want to ask him out. This is giving me so much anxiety, lol. I wish I could magically be able to look people in the eyes for longer and talk to them without looking away hahaha. I know that nowadays girls don't have to wait for guys to ask them out, and we should just ask them, but I am terrified. Help! :)

You suck you never gave me a chance.

You may tell yourself that so you can live with all the fear that runs your life around love. Still if you looked honestly I was never given a fair shake. So I guess I should thank you for showing me how awful and unjust you really can be before the next step came and was locked in tight with someone who only saw me as a toy for their sick emotional relaese. So yeah guys run, but you won't because you'll want that which I waited for to be sure this time. I didn't land that next step because she was so not over the fear hill. This hill will eat you alive gentlemen you've been warned. Oh yes of course it's all my fault I never faced any of the challenges she needed me to meet. Funny though she was so off her rocker around this that she really did fail to see these were not my obstacles to overcome but hers. I wished so hard and prayed so much that this special woman could find her way. I waited in darkness and total fear to see if a hope of love so strong could be enough to turn the world a little. Sadly no I failed because she failed herself.

Blessed are the meek

They will inherit whatever the brave have no use for, and leave behind. Along with whatever the bold had taken for their own, used up and threw away. So scraps, leavings and rejects, mostly, with the odd, rare gem mixed in by accident, buried deep in the muck.
Yeah, the meek will need all the divine help they can get.

The military has an old saying - the bullet doesn't care if you're ready. I find that the universe (multiverse?) is like that more generally. You get what you get when you get it. If you don't take the chance, it'll pass you by. Seize your opportunity when it arrives or be damned. Regrets are forever, and sins of omission are far worse (and longer lasting) than the naughty sins. Fear of embarrassment is nothing compared to that.
No sympathy. No excuses. And often, no second chances. This isn't a Disney story. More like the Brothers Grimm.
Take. The. Risk.

I gave this guy way too many chances over a very long time. As for fear, it’s definitely not me that’s the fearful one in this situation, so whoever you’re writing about it’s not me.
