DEAR DEIDRE: SURELY I’m too old for love now? I’d like to settle down and have a family but I just can’t find my Mr Right.
I’m a 38-year-old woman, I have lots of friends and I’ve been to so many weddings lately which helps underline how very single I am.
I’ve had two long term relationships – one three-year-relationship and the other lasted two years and ended a year ago.
I’ve only recently started to feel strong enough to go out and socialise again, but I’m not into casual sex and I’m quite picky.
How do I shake off the feeling that I’ve missed out on something good in my life?
I belong to a book club, go to yoga and I’ve got a job I am passionate about, but I never meet anyone I fancy.

DEIDRE SAYS: Focusing on finding a partner all too often seems to make them scarce.
Instead of fretting about what’s missing, look at what you can do to make your life full and meaningful.
Ask yourself, “What am I for?” Do you love animals or connecting with people? Do you enjoy sport?
Would you benefit from taking up an entirely new interest that you can really get stuck into?
Check out the royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk to find out how you can make a difference.
When you’ve stopped worrying about attracting Mr Right, he may well be attracted to the dynamic and fascinating person you are growing into.
