What God calls us to do is to take the hand we have been dealt, and to play it the best we can, in His grace and with His guidance.It is also true that, statistically, older singles marry at much lower rates than younger singles. First, the older singles figure includes all of the people who for whatever reason don’t want or intend to marry. It also gets more difficult to marry as we get older, because it gets more difficult for older singles to find each other.This happens for various reasons like not being in an area where there are singles in your age group, or being too busy to be out looking, which underscores why Catholic Match is such a great tool for meeting other Catholics. The list of biases goes on and on but that’s all they are… One way to help this along is to pray to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit, particularly wisdom and understanding.But sometimes not meeting anyone worthwhile can actually come down to one’s attitude toward and level of hope in actually finding someone special. Be honest with yourself about the things that are holding you back because if you’re not, you’re being dishonest with someone you date. Our heavenly Father is generous with those who ask for these gifts and they can help you overcome any doubts or lack of ability to trust that might be lingering from your past relationships.

Your heart should be completely available to give to someone else when the time is right, so take the steps you need to take now, before the right one comes along.

Someone needs to say this—we are not all meant to be married. There is no fairness or equal opportunity in the dating world. I also think most computer dating sites should not take anyone over 50.
I am a tough sell since most women will not date men over 55. There is just no real dating market for you that late in life. —Timed Out Dear Timed Out, Well, in one sense, I have to agree with you.
