I am a 50 year old man and my life is a lonely one. I have 3 children from my marriage but I never see them. I know they have their own lives to live now and their own families. I remember when I was younger I also did not visit my parents a lot due to work and my own family commitments, just the way it is I suppose. My daily routine of loneliness never changes. I wake up make breakfast, walk to the local store then sit in a chair all day.
My ex wife left me for a younger guy and is now living somewhere abroad. I have tried dating through the dating websites but the women are too unapproachable. I did manage to go one one date with a woman I was talking with for a month but that was a complete disaster. I have looked online for groups for lonely people but there is not a lot in my area.
What does a lonely 50 year old man do? Is there life after 50 or is this it?
I always liked playing my guitar and writing songs but can not seem to find the push anymore, everything just seems like a huge effort, I seem to have lost something inside. Anyway suppose I will just keep going on.
