When feeling lonely it is better to feel lonely alone
'Tis heartbreaking being lonely amidst a crowd
Descending into bottomless lurid crypts unknown
With no one to listen to the cries she cries out loud
Standing aside looking in viewing a life mislaid
Imagining different chapters diverse paths taken
Mercurial rare random glimpses of love betrayed
Afloat in a fickle mist of dreams so long forsaken
The future is known already written on the wind
Past not forgotten remaining to torment and haunt
Piteous wails like the woeful sound of a lone violin
With solemn perverse mockery often they taunt
Unrequited loves misplaced passions burning heart
Cursed by a hostile antagonist thrust into seclusion
Damned by rejection a once blithe spirit torn apart
Melancholy realization of life’s shattered illusion

This is post Number 500!
It's time to bring out the streamers! Pop the cork on a couple of bottles of champagne! Let's blow up some balloons! Yeehaaa!
My mind is a blank. I wanted to tell you a story, but I can think of not one amongst my many hidden away in the depths of my memory.
I read an article last weekend about "on-line" dating. Has anyone succumbed to joining such a dating service?
A friend of mine has, a few times, and she keeps trying to talk me into doing so. I stand firm and determined in my resolve not to do so. I have nothing against such sites. They're just not for me. I admit at times, just out of curiosity, I've scanned through RSVP's site, but I will never join in, nor put my profile up for all to see.
These dating services are growing in popularity from all reports, particularly in this state of Queensland with its high concentrate of single men in the central and northern regions working the mines and in the construction and engineering industries. Also the Sunshine and Gold Coasts have high membership due to people who have made a lifestyle change. They're often separated or divorced.
I guess as we grow older our choices of meeting people become diminished. The pubs and clubs hold little appeal. So, where else does one go to meet people of similar interests? Sporting clubs, for some, I guess...I'm stumped...I'm not the one to be giving advice on where and how to meet people as I'm the world's most dedicated recluse!
I can see nothing wrong with meeting people through the internet as long as all the guidelines and safety requirements are utilised.
As the Relationships Australia Director of training Paul Simmons said..."The important thing is not how people first meet, it's how they move on from that point."
I agree. (What is a "Relationships Australia Director of Training, anyway?)
