      Hi I’m the opposite. Can’t find a nice woman, 67 now, and still useless with the opposite sex.
      Hope you have luck in your search Beverly, I’m going to Eastbourne Friday for 10 days, must say I hate eating alone at meal times.
      Would not go to a restaurant alone as I feel like a spare part, or they stick you near the toilets!!!
      Anyway onwards and upwards , every dog has its day I’m told

      David in Kent.💞🏐😛

      Went into POF again recently, after 3 years and the same profiles are still on and active. Strange.

      Thanks for all comments, did eat with my brother as he was down of part of the time.
      Due to covid, get breakfast delivered to your room so no contact with other guests!!!!
      And no maid service during stay, weather’s been varied but very hot, walked a lot, drank too much, but enjoyed the break, last day today 18th.
      Regards David 💞💞🐱

      Young lady like you should have no problem finding friends

    • Paul007 21st July 2021 at 2:22 am

      Maybe your expectations are too high. Or maybe there are no nice males anymore. Define nice male

    • Chrisdmids 21st July 2021 at 6:26 am

      As has been said, dating sites matches 100+ miles away. I tried a long distance relationship and doesn’t work. I can’t find anyone who shouldn’t be single. Actually sad about it. Love myself and don’t mind my own company but just want someone to be my partner and feel like I’m missing out and getting old

      • Countrylife 7th October 2021 at 2:06 pm

        Don’t you think the very concept of “looking” puts an immediate pressure onto two people just getting to know each other & discovering what they have in common & if they enjoy each other’s company. If I get to know the person & like & admire them, & really enjoy their company, then I might think of them as possibly more than just a friend.
        And then that’s a whole new topic in itself!!

        • Chrisdmids 22nd October 2021 at 2:58 pm

          Yes hard one! Like someone and you don’t want to risk that by becoming more than friend’s might ruin what could have been a long great friendship.
          So are you a farmer?

        • Countrylife 22nd October 2021 at 3:46 pm

          Think the getting on is key!!
          No, an interior designer who has a Smallholding, horse, gists & chickens but would love to live on a farm! I live in a barn so that’s as close as it gets!

        • Chrisdmids 22nd October 2021 at 4:04 pm

          What are gist 🤔😂😂
          Yeah I would have loved to be a farmer or something with animals and outdoors. Lonley goat herder or something 🤔
          I’m a furniture restorer and do some work for interior designers.

        • Countrylife 24th October 2021 at 10:55 am

          Very nice. I like mixing styles. I’m very eclectic! I’m retired unless I fancy doing the project. I mainly sculpt these days.

        • Chrisdmids 24th October 2021 at 11:13 am

          Wow! What’s that carved out of?
          I’d love to retire but can’t afford to 😔

        • Countrylife 24th October 2021 at 11:37 am

          It’s ceramic. Hand built & fired stoneware clay so it can go outside. About 3/4 size.
          I’m sure you’d still want to restore pieces even if you did retire!

        • Chrisdmids 25th October 2021 at 5:50 am

          Yes if I get to retire I’d still do it.
          Love it, might have to get some clay

        • Countrylife 26th October 2021 at 12:17 pm

          You should-I hadn’t touched clay for over 20 years. Started sketching again & doing some life drawing.Really enjoy it. Not sure I’ve the patience to restore furniture!

        • Chrisdmids 26th October 2021 at 12:37 pm

          All in the prep. I can draw but just don’t have the time. Knackered when I get home. So old 🤔🙄😋

        • Countrylife 26th October 2021 at 3:45 pm

          You old fart!

        • Chrisdmids 26th October 2021 at 4:03 pm

          Long day with over three hours travel every day 😔😋 53, fell 83 😒 don’t have a life either so just work, food, film bed repeat 🙄🙄🙄

        • Countrylife 26th October 2021 at 4:12 pm

          Oh dear. Certainly don’t miss the 2hr commute but 3 is pushing it! Relocate?

        • Chrisdmids 27th October 2021 at 5:46 am

        • Countrylife 27th October 2021 at 6:45 am

          Oh dear. It’s been hard for many people & very unpredictable of late, Hope it all works out fir you.
          But how shallow on the last bit!

        • Chrisdmids 27th October 2021 at 4:21 pm

          Don’t mind if the river is a bit shallow 🤔😋 you know I’m jokin right? Never been materialistic but be nice to actually have money left the week I get payed 🤔

        • Countrylife 27th October 2021 at 9:49 pm

          Ha! Yes I know your joking!

    • esther.bray23 28th July 2021 at 9:39 am

      Yes I have found this too. Badoo is not a good dating site. So I have just a simple purely friendship relationship with a local man in the town I do my shopping at. As he is Autistic and health problems it is difficult to have a more comfortable relationship.
      But he always able to me some of the time.

    • creative. 12th August 2021 at 11:48 am

      Hi, Beverley- from Creative Peter. I am positive like you, but this dating site is not full of people like that, hope to hear from you, although I need to join fully in next month or two. Agree with Compass360 about you meeting someone. Regards

    • Ric 15th August 2021 at 11:15 am

      Hi Bev

      Just perusing the answers to your question and thought mmmmm?

      Well for me having tried dating sites 9 years ago I was lucky, for within 3 weeks I met the ‘Perfect Girl’.

      We decided to meet soon after and have lived together since BUT I always felt that her previous life experiences would eventually come to the fore.

      Soon she is leaving and moving back to Portugal her motherland alone as in my sixties I think its best I let my ‘Perfect Girl’ go as I can’t do anymore to make her feel safe and loved.

      We do love each other and its sad that I am losing the companionship but people come and go in life enough to leave a memory that remains good or bad, providing the experience that allows us to move forward a much wiser person.

      I was married previously for 27 years and that ended finally for she found someone much uglier but richer. My thought pattern from the caccoon I had created in marital bliss urged me to find my ‘Perfect Girl’,as abive.

      Finally, I have come to realise its time I learned to look after me and discover things I have always wanted to do in my life for me and not try to improve the life of a another by putting my own life on hold.

      Love yourself Bev and find your own beacon of perfection – Perfection is in the eye of the beholder not the person.No one is perfect only perfect moments that collectively create a harmony.

      Stay away from date sites as since my luck of 9 years ago, they have become a breeding ground for scams and over inflated egos of people who want to waste the time of some very lovely and vulnerable lonely hearts.

      Instead , for me as mentioned on a different item on RestLess, I am going to travel next year under less restrictiive Covid criteria visiting and possibly meeting like minded folk and so breathing that air of perfection that is the self’.
      Enrich yourself with an experience of culture and vision that will undoubtedly brin you the ideal richness you seek….
      Good luck Bev.

      The only man who could ever turn me, is Elon Musk, but I guess he’s too busy saving the Planet! Lol

      I’m also having trouble finding a female partner, or even just someone to have a casual chin wag with.

    • Anonymous User (no longer active) 4th September 2021 at 12:18 pm

      I am Michael a widower find it difficult to understand you have a problem meeting the right man you are a very attractive young woman

    • Chrisdmids 5th September 2021 at 12:00 pm

      Any luck yet? 🤔🍀😋

    • Paul007 6th September 2021 at 11:13 pm

      There are a lot of us about

    • Loveforever 9th September 2021 at 9:48 am

      Hi,give me a link,maybe you are waiting for me,I am single.love

    • Eddie107 10th September 2021 at 1:49 am

      Hi Beverly, hope you’re well

    • Jojo b 10th September 2021 at 8:08 pm

      I know the feeling it’s hard out their since covid.

    • TNT 11th September 2021 at 1:17 pm

      I like the colour of your lips in your profile photo

    • Brad_66 11th September 2021 at 1:33 pm

      It’s more difficult in your 50’s. I’m talking generically. People become so fixed in their ways. I’m including myself in that btw. Still, one day…🥰

    • goldfish63 11th September 2021 at 8:35 pm

      Keep looking and don’t give up, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet that prince lol 🙂

    • Gerard371 17th September 2021 at 9:54 pm

      Someone said in one of the replies, join a walking/hiking group. I agree,
      besides getting out and socialising, and going to some nice parts of the country you might never go on, on your own, you do tend to find that most of the people are single, and over a few walks you get to know them. No guarantee of course, but at least better odds than on a dating site, where you don’t even know if the profile is really of that person. Plus you also make some good friends, both male and female.

      • Be Be 10th October 2021 at 12:38 pm

        I agree Gerard, meeting in social situations is fun and you just never know if someone special could be there😊

    • Tim17 19th September 2021 at 7:34 pm

      I would say it’s hard for both sexes to find a new partner maybe easier for women I’ve been single in uk for years I agree with the another ere women like bad boys normal are boring they think now I’ve got use to bein single my advice to u is just enjoy life u never kno wats round the corner

    • Kazzy62 15th October 2021 at 6:22 pm

      Yes I got the same problem funny enough

    • Smileyday 17th October 2021 at 7:02 pm

      Give me a boring male any day. Who needs a bad boy when you don’t know where he’s fishing with his ‘rod’ let them go find a bad girl where they can fight it out amongst them-self and give as good as they get whilst us ‘boring’ ones can enjoy our later years and have fun along the way 😊

    • Superdaz 24th October 2021 at 11:34 am

      Don’t worry… it’ll happen when you least expect it …good luck x

    • Silv 30th October 2021 at 2:36 pm

      Hi Beverly,
      I know that feeling. Every time I think I found someone I think I would get on with and have a lot common, they end up doing or saying something that really makes me question my choice.

      It happens to the best of us . One day I’m hoping, but if it doesn’t happen life still goes on with or without a man x

    • Tereron 30th October 2021 at 5:26 pm

      Absolutely know where your coming from. I’ve been on other sites with lots of scammers. It’s so hard

    • magicmark20 3rd November 2021 at 11:42 pm

      Just stop looking and one will find you

    • Bazza99 4th November 2021 at 7:27 am

      I’m fortunate, I have ladies banging on my on my door all night but they are trying to get out not in.
