I’m desperately craving company and can’t go on living without a partner – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: NEIGHBOURS ask me how I survive so alone. I am reasonably good company, I’m told, but alone evening and weekends.

I worry the life I lead means many potholes ahead.

I am a fit and active man of 58 and my last serious relationship ended – her choice – five years ago.

Ten years ago I gave up drinking and lost some of the friends I had back then. No fall-out, just a different lifestyle for me now.

I work in town but live in the country, and some weekends I might not talk to anyone outside of shopping.

I tried online dating but there’s a better chance of winning the lottery than meeting the right person that way.

Social dances for my age group are all couples.

I crave company and long for a partner around my age. I can’t go on as I am now.

DEIDRE SAYS: Building on personal interests rather than searching for a partner is often more successful.

Try volunteering where you are likely to meet good-hearted people of both sexes.

And how about joining Ramblers, which has active schedules across the country (ramblers.org.uk)?
