Feeling discouraged, lonely, maybe even a little hopeless...

I don't do OLD and never downloaded one but I talk to as many people I find interesting when I am out doing anything as allowed by Father Time.

My advice: get out of your comfort zone and approach guys in person that piques your interest. Rejection sucks but it gets easier the more often you do it. After you get over the anxiety, it's fun, exhilarating, and you never know where it can lead. The whole stranger-danger thing is a bunch of shit if you use common sense.

Also do stuff that makes you feel good/attractive about yourself. Do it for yourself, not to meet someone. A confident woman doing their own thing is a huge turn on.

Some of the most intense and insightful relationships I've been in are one's where I least expected them to happen. Don't worry too much and enjoy this roller-coaster journey called life.

Good luck!
