Lost and lonely
I am relieved to be out of a loveless mariage and will not go back for anything in the world. However, I get really lonelymost of the time. I am not necessarily looking for a partner, but that may help. I just am doubtful that I will love again. What do single people do, to meet people. How can I pass the lonely hours and fill them with happiness? I am not srongly opposed to pubs, etc, but it is not appropriate to go there as a single (old) lady. My back is real bad right now, so squash is out. I would even do voluntary work, just to meet people and keep busy. Please tell me how other people cope in this situation.
