In need of love

I am desperately in need of the love of a good woman. It’s hard trying to find this. Ain’t life a bitch? I know, regardless of the MS, I’m a good catch. I’m a gentle guy, with a heart of gold. I just need a chance to let a woman know me for the person I am. Damn it, I’m worthy of someone special.

You can’t hurry love, you just have to wait,
Love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give’n’take…….

The Supremes sang it all really. Patience, Pete.

Someone will come your way.. I found partners through the Outsiders club. I say partners, yep there was the pain of rejection when things didn’t work out, but at least it gave me experience and confidence to look further afield..
If that lot on the Undatables can do it, so can you 😀 Don’t give up

The best way to get love from another is to first give love to yourself. Man, woman… they can’t love a person who cannot love themself.

@pottypete I’m with you – the day I was diagnosed I thought, there go my chances – the only woman I’ll find now is one with a pathological need to care. Added to this is the social isolation of being too tired to get out and meet people.
However, I get good help from a Mental Health Nurse (of which I am one), who encourages me to explore avenues where I might feel comfortable getting out and meeting people. It might not have got me a ‘bird’ yet, but I am socialising more than I could have expected.
As for the rest, like the others have said here – I guess you have to wait for the right person to see your qualities.

@kraheera is right…

Every now and then I take a read of this as a reminder..

Sorry I haven’t replied before, but my laptop is in dock being repaired. I’ve just got my old one out of mothballs. It’s slower than me, lol.

I know that love comes along when you least expect it. I’m just fed up not having someone to share life with. My male lodger’s ok, but not my dreamboat, hahahaha. I need a woman.

Chin up @pottypete … All I can say to this is that you rarely find love when searching… it always seems to come when you least expect it…

(it’s cliched bu true)

So maybe the best advice I could give would be to get out there… meet people, mix it up a bit, join a club or two.

Do it for yourself though, go along to things you genuinely have an interest in… you’re more likely to meet someone who you have common ground with for a start!

Maybe volunteer for something where you’ll meet people… a local MS group, a community clean up project…

Saying all that… I met my lovely girlfriend the old fashioned way…. We had a random and very unexpected snog at a gig!

She turned out to be awesome… and we’ve been together for nearly a year.

Lol @JustJones . It was a bit tongue in cheek. Yeah I’m desperate, but I’m not so desperate as to actually search for it. I have a fairly good social life, when the MS allows it. It’s more about having a bonk, wink wink.
