Don’t ever be afraid to ask about it, they may not want to talk about it at the moment, but come back at a better time and discuss it together, don’t be scared to let them know how you feel. I am 44 years old and entering the dating scene again for the first time in 25 years. I am not doing the online singles sites…that is just scary to me. I am new in town, with a few happily married friends. So much of my time was taken up with caring for someone else that now I just don’t know how to fill that time. Thanks for highlighting an important principle for women over 40 seeking love: You will not find it unless you do something differently. It’s called Match.com, it’s open 24 hours a day, and it costs a lot less than getting on a plane and hoping to sit next to a 45-year-old eligible bachelor.
You don’t have to be single if you don’t want to be, Loriann.So, it’s not that their replacing them, and it doesn’t mean they’re over the loss, but nobody should have to spend their life alone.Talk to your parent about it, and they’ll tell you how they feel.Your parent just has to have some fun time to get things off their minds..!!– Laura, 16 My mom recently started dating, and it’s really hard to adjust to.
