I am 47 years old and still single. My friends have already grandchildren yet i remain single up to this moment. What do you think is happening to me, whenever i plan to have one, it always ended to nothing. Could you give some tips and strategies so that i could have one? Thanks in advance.

I always ended up frustrated. Maybe am just too choosy that's why i stayed single. but am still hoping that somebody could give me good strategy to have it realized. I hope too soon. Thanks for your time. More power.

Ok, now I understand your question. Then I would advice you to visit the singles or dating website, go to gatherings like churches or social meeting when you can meet people from all walks of life. Try to be flexible and not too choosy. Don't dress like a forty something lady, dress like a girl, u know what I mean! dress like you are now 25 years and keep a smile in your face so that people wont mistake you to be too serious. If you see a guy you fancy and he doesn't seem to notice you, start a conversation with him - ask him about the weather and anything general. Someone will show up soon or later. Happy dating and I wish you the best.

I am just like you. I don't know anything about attracting anybody either. I don't know how they do it. Some say you have to make it happen while others say just let it evolve naturally. Me I have no clue. I don't know what makes a realtionship work. I am sure there is someone who does.

Have you been married, statickery? Sorry but I didn't quite understand. Church or single dances might be a good way to get back into the dating community. Maybe a co-worker knows someone single or that someone knows someone else who is single and looking. Networking usually works well. Marriage is not for everyone. Maybe you are trying too hard to find a man who is perfect. Everyone has imperfections. Try not to get frustrated but instead enjoy life.

Yeah, that's true. I am enjoying life. To the fullest to be exact. Thanks for your concern.

marriage is a very strange thing. there is no person that has no stain. you must have a very high standard. if you wanna say goodbye to the single life. you should low your standard and try again. i think you will be successful. good luck.
