I did consider trying Meetup before the pandemic, but forgot all about it. Since that stuff is pretty much done and over with here in Norway I might give that a go. I see there are a few groups in my city!Can't wait to come back here tomorrow and see your "Day 44" post You got this!
Regarding the loneliness thing - yes it's tough
I'm married now but I lived by myself for many years so I know that feeling
Kind of cliche but have you tried meetup or any equivalent where you are?
Regarding dating - how about dating apps?
People have mixed opinions on them
But they have one major benefit - the relationship is clear from the start
No need to try to convince a woman to go from friends/coworker/acquaintance to a romantic relationship, etc.
From the start you both know why you are there
Just a thought - I know people have different opinions on these apps, so maybe it's not for you
Thank you also for your recent support - really appreciate it and has helped a lot
Regarding dating apps, I never really tried any. Have been hearing a lot of bad things and quite a few good things also, so I’m very much undecided on the whole thing.
But I guess there’s no harm in trying, it’s just such a huge step putting myself out there, you know? I’m so unfamiliar with meeting anyone in that way, as far as I know dating traditionally isn’t really a thing where I live - though that has probably changed with Tinder etc.
In any case, thank you for the suggestions! There’s definitely a lot I can try - and I guess that’s my biggest fault - I never really try.
