Agony Aunt answers your questions, July 16, 2017

Dear Aunty,

I am 28 years old and alone. Despite my best efforts I seem to be unable to find a lady to share my life with.

It seems that it is very easy for others but, no matter what I do, it goes nowhere.

I have joined local clubs and go out regularly –  nothing has happened in the romance department.

I am coming to the conclusion that I’m the problem and have recently started thinking about a future alone, which has made me feel really low.

All my friends are partnered up and I am constantly battling the urge to withdraw. Am I destined to be alone for ever?


THIS seems to be common problem these days. In a world where we are all time poor, socialising has become more hit and miss and much more difficult.

I’m not sure the Boys’ advice is correct. Volunteer groups are certainly not quasi dating venues. One should only become a volunteer for the right reasons. Do the pubs and link up with your friends for meals out and movie nights.

Get to the footy or cricket ….there are plenty of gals there. Spread your wings a bit. And just a small tip; lighten up a bit. Dating is supposed to be fun and exciting.


BY YOURSELF is not bad. You have to go to the right places Join a volunteer club; that’s where you might find a caring soul.
