I joined this forum few weeks ago and did quite a few posts.
However, sadly Ive tried to reach out, pour my heart out to reconnect n build friendships. But av bn unsuccessful in both fronts.
I guess that could be due to a number of reasons, such as people av had bad experiences in the past in such a way that their perception of everyone is negative, perhaps my demeanour was unappealing, perhaps people av become so independent that they would rather not av relationships etc.
At least I tried, I came, I saw, but I never conquered. But if any of my posts inspired any, then that’s a good thing.
I realise when it comes to reconnecting with people, it’s out of anyone’s hands, as u can’t force people to be ur friends if they’re unwilling to.
It’s amazes me though that alot of people on here winch about loneliness as single parents, but when an arm is extended, people freeze.
I guess I must embrace the reality that I am gonna be lonely forever.
Without wishing to sound rude, I expect it’s possibly because your posts are mostly all the same, quite self pitying and woe is me. People have responded to you but I think you only want to talk about how lonely you are and how you will never find anyone despite pouring your heart out. I’m not entirely sure that this is the best place to look for someone, I see this as more a place for practical advice. If you want to find someone, try being more upbeat and make interesting conversation. Sorry to be blunt! Posting a ‘this is my last post’ post is a little attention seeking. There don’t seem to be that many active members here anyway. Maybe some kind of dating site is more what you are after? Good luck.
Ah Richard, don’t be beat! I’ve seen ur posts and I thought you came across as a nice guy, though for myself, I like many others on here are just maybe too busy holding their own lives together, working, managing kids, hectic lifestyles and the posts get over looked. I think sometimes the site might benefit from a ‘chat room’ facility which could benefit those in a similar position i.e. Lonely once kids are in bed, personally I get home from work, attend kids sports club, eat tea on the go, and flop into bed ready for round 2/3/4/5 tomorrow 😁 I think when the time is right, I’m sure you’ll meet someone but until then just be you
