I see couples together everywhere and wonder why that can’t be me

DEAR DEIDRE: I SEE couples together everywhere and wonder why that can’t be me. I don’t have the confidence to talk to women and ask them out.

I’m a 56-year-old guy. I was married for six years but the marriage ended 20 years ago.

All the dates I have been on since have been fixed up by my friends. I’ve been to clubs for divorcees and on dating sites but nothing works.

One woman told me the only reason she wanted to be with me was to give her kids a stable upbringing.

I’m so lonely. What am I doing wrong?


DEIDRE SAYS: You are probably giving off an air of neediness.

Focus on the women you meet, not your own needs. Ask them about themselves, their day, care about what they think and feel, show interest in their chat and their problems.

People love being asked about themselves, will enjoy the conversation and you don’t have to impress.
