I'm feeling a little melancholy. I'm 38, been divorced for 8 years. Ex-husband got married and had a kid in the blink of an eye. My close friends are all married and/or have kids. I'm feeling like I'm missing out. I don't even want the conventional marriage, kids scenario, just a loving compassionate partner to share life with. I'm feeling left out from life. I have tried online dating and going to mixers but nada.

It's been so long since I even had a fun flirty relationship with anyone. The only guys hitting on me are married. No prospects anywhere....sigh!
