angel2206 :  Me!!! I called it off at 36. I thought I was too old to find someone new. I was completely wrong. I did all the websites, sports teams, volunteer, holiday parties, speeddating, singles parties. I threw BBQ’s. I was out every night with a different guy. Not like *that* just dates/meet up for a drink/dinner. I had to cut myself off at 4 times per week for dates. I went to concerts, the world series, all the trendy restaurants. I was really trying to find my man. I met my Fiance 6 months after I called things off on Tinder. He looks like a soap star he’s so handsome and nice. Wedding planned in Maui for August. I never looked back. My ex was a complete jerk who wasted my time and I am glad that he is gone. If I at 36 could juggle guys in a city where people settle down early, you could absolutely do that at 32! Prime dating years are ahead.

  1. angel2206 :  My Mother!  She was engaged to a doctor and met my Dad  (another Dr.) and immediately called off the wedding.  She later married my Dad and they were married for over 50 years before she passed away.  He passed 5 years later not marring again and told me the only time she ever broke a promise to him was when she died before he did!

You still have tons of time. My Fiance was divorced at 44 after 22 years married and is getting married again (to me!) At 48. My boss’ mother is getting married at 81! You’re never too old to find love.

I met my first love and we got engaged. We were planning our wedding when we broke up. I was devastated, heartbroken, etc. I was 32 at the time. Couldn’t wait to spend my life with him and have babies and all that good stuff but alas, breakup was for the best. He got into drugs and I question his sexuality.

I met someone else after him and we became friends and couple of months later, he told me how he felt and we’ve been together since. We live together and have a puppy together and he has told me he has every intention of proposing and calls me the love of his life. I love him and he’s a better man than my ex will ever be. The love I feel for him is different from my ex and I questioned it at first but it turned out to be a great thing.

Don’t worry, you did the right thing. Just focus on yourself and you’ll find the better half when you least expect it.

Yes! My Dad actually! He was engaged to a woman that he had been family friends with his entire life and ended up ending their engagement. He met my mom about a year later. My parents are still happily married 25ish years later and had 3 kids 🙂
