When i was recently separated, I was sitting around one night and I got a call from a friend of mine, asking me to meet her, her husband and “some of his work buddies” at a local bar. I walked out the door in a pair of jeans that I probably couldn’t get one leg into today, and a sleeveless top that showed off my slim (at the time) arms.My kids were on vacation with my ex, so I had no child care issues. When I walked into the bar, my friend came rushing over to me.
Hi all, I have a girlfriend who was telling me that she met a nice young man but she does not want to have a relationship because she thinks he is too young for her.
She keeps saying he is the same age as her younger brother.
I really think she is worried about what other people will think.
It didn’t matter how skinny I was, I was the big 4-1.
I was officially “middle aged” and in need of Botox and eye glass “readers.” Why would someone want me when they could have one of the million 30 year olds living in the city? I felt like a failure: I managed to screw up the most serious relationship I ever had. I couldn’t even manage to save my marriage for the sake of my two very young children. There’s a lot of guilt and self-hatred that goes with getting divorced.
