Although I'm not as concerned about not being married before, but maybe that's because my first girlfriend was divorced. Either way, I don't have to worry about potential girlfriends having been married or having kids if potential girlfriends don't even exist.

I’m sure potential girlfriends do exist. You can’t dismiss it completely! Why don’t you try dating apps?

I've tried apps, and didn't get much luck. I tried dating sites for 9 years, and all I got was the one girlfriend when I was 29 that lasted 4 months. Lots and lots of potential that always falls through before anything can even come of it. It's so mentally exhausting, and only makes me feel more hopeless and despairing about my loneliness.

I dismiss it completely because giving up on it hurts less than holding out pointless hope, and every time, in a moment of weakness that I try again to meet someone, it ends with me being hurt and left alone yet again, almost always before we even meet.

Same here. Have tried dating apps, and sites like eharmony for almost 20 years. Hate to think of how much money I have poured in to them. None have been a success. Only times anyone even responds is when they are scammers wanting money. It is as bad as ‘real life’.
