I have blogged here to share my experience that may be of value to others. I am 73 years old and have been married three times. I was betrayed in all of them, but somehow I got enough faith in the possibility of friendship, that I began dating again and Lo and behold I have found a true love probably for the very first time.
The men that I chatted with on this site restored my faith in men again. I thank all the good men here for that. I also gained faith in women again from the many good women that I have known here. This site was here when my life was in ashes and now I may be better than I have ever been. My idealism has been restored. I think I have been restored.
I just want to say that life goes on and love is always possible and it is also always precious. True friendship is a treasure worth seeking, and romantic love is just as bright and shiny at an advanced age as it is at a young age. Somehow all the betrayals burnish my hope now. I may be wrong as I have been in the past, but right now I have faith and hope. I do not want to make the people who are alone sadder; I do want to give them hope in new possibilities of all kinds.
We may not have much time and I have to face that, but at this age, we all have to learn to live in the moment and to treasure them and I try very hard to do that, yet I don't want you to think that misery has to last forever, and I do want to believe that love can last. Well, we all just have to live and hope for bad things to end and the good will last.
I hope I have restored some faith here in new visions and new possibilities at any age.
