I am 54 years old and had three bad relationships in the last 20 years. I would like to try again.?

I have been by myself for the last two years and would like to find someone to date. I have had bad self-esteem problems but I know I am a good person. What is the best way for me to find someone who I can find a decent relationship with? I am very afraid of being hurt again, but I am tired of being by myself. This is a problem that doesn't make sense to me because I never used to feel this way. I have one friend that i watch movies with after church but nothing else. Why do i feel so stuck?

    The thing is that if you go looking for relationships " afraid of being hurt " you've already jinxed yourself.

    If you just go out looking for fun and companionship and don't give a shyt , that's when you will find the right person.

    Source(s): anticipation and expectations screw things up, just " wing it " and see what happens.

    I am not sure if yahoo answers will help you. You need to talk to a counsellor to explore why you feel stuck and other current emotions.

    It is good that you haven't given up on dating. Have you tried internet dating?
