I would like talk about any of you who may be in their 30's or 40's and have never been married and are yearning to settle down and get married and start a family.

Are you frustrated because you can't seem to find Miss Right? Are you longing to be a father? Have you lost hope that you will ever find someone to settle down with and spend the rest of your life with? Do you have a lot of friends, but you still feel lonely and long for true love and companionship with a life long partner?

Have you fallen into the trap of thinking that you need to be married and have a family to make your life complete and happy?

Now, let me give you some advice concerning these problems:

1. First of all, it's a big mistake to depend on someone else to complete your life and bring you happiness. Being happy is a do-it-yourself project. True happiness comes from within.

2. Please don't sit around in a dreamlike state and look at the world through rose-colored glasses thinking that marriage and a family is the key to your eternal happiness. The fact that around half of all marriages end in divorce should give you a clue that marriage does not guarantee happiness.

Don't get me wrong. Marriage is a wonderful institution as long as you find the right mate. And I can't stress to you enough that marriage is very serious and you must make the right selection of a lifelong partner. Don't just jump into marriage prematurely because you think you're getting older and it's time to settle down.

3. In the mean time, while you're waiting for some special lady to come into your life and you settle down, please try to find happiness and fulfillment in other areas besides from intimate relationships with women. My suggestion would be to become involved in helping others through charity organizations, volunteer work, community activities, working for political causes, church activities, helping the needy and the hungry, etc. It can be extremely rewarding by helping others. It gives meaning to your life.

I'm a prime example of being of service to others. I gain
enormous pleasure out of helping men find love and romance
through my articles and my products. I truly believe this is my life's calling. To help men succeed with women. God knows it's a jungle out there in the dating world and us men need all the help and advice we can get.
