I wanted to fall in love, get married, and have kids.
My life didn’t turn out the way I thought it would and I had NO idea that I would end up in my 50’s, single and dating again.
It’s not the best place to be, but it is better than being miserable, I’ll tell you that.
If you’re someone who got it right the first time and married the man of your dreams, had children, and now are enjoying your older years with the love of your life and grandchildren, well…. You can count your blessings right now that you’re not still out there, but you might get a kick out of reading this anyway.
I made plenty of bad choices along the way and it didn’t go the way I wanted it to go, but the blessings aren’t over yet, nor is life over yet.
Growing up and starting to date, I had the same dreams as most all my girlfriends.
Dating in my 50’s is a whole different story than when I was younger in my 20’s and dating, as I’m sure my other single 50’s friends will agree.
