I’ve been holding off writing this, because I had hoped the dilemma would have solved itself by now, or at least there was a less public way of appealing for help.
But no there isn’t. Not for me or the hundreds of thousands of others who are suffering a similar fate. By which I mean singledom.
Don’t laugh, I’m deadly serious. When you are literally all alone in the world life simply isn’t worth living, and that’s a fact. If I had a pistol right now I would prefer to shoot myself in the head than face yet another day without there being some significant other here to give my existence a point. Okay I grant you there is a small minority who chose to be single, but on the whole we ALL need company to function. And by that I mean to be able to do ANYTHING. Being single is like being hobbled, living in a state of stasis while more or less invisible to the rest of the world.
And before you start writing with worldly (and esoteric) wisdom, forget it, I’ve had a shed-load over the last two and half years, mostly from those who have no idea what they are talking about, mostly from those in smug couples.
Miss Right is not going to suddenly appear in Almonaster and see only me. The only answer therefore, as with everything else in life, is to be proactive, shout it out, until Ms Right hears and makes contact.
So here goes. Either you, or someone close to you (your partner/ friends/ family/ colleagues) must know other single people (at least one). Go to them right now (before you forget) and tell them all about me. Give them the link to my site (https://elpocito.wordpress.com), Facebook page (http://facebook.com/phil.rooksby/), and then get them to promise to make contact (firstname.lastname@example.org). Do that and know you have helped two trapped souls be free again.
Please do this, or at the very least copy and SHARE it on whatever social media you are connected to. One day there will be a GOOGLE or FACEBOOK for single people to meet up (why has no-one thought of this?), until then we each have to do what we can for ourselves.
Many thanks in anticipation.
