You're Almost Signed Up

Some say their peers are always attached to their cell phones, looking for better options. My advice is to continue the online dating — because you never know.

You should also try to pursue some activities that put you in groups of people of all ages. I know you want to meet someone who's ish, but it might be a year-old friend who knows your match. In my own life, I've learned that having close friends of different ages helps me feel like less of an outlier among my peers, and reminds me that I can wind up sharing plenty with someone, even if they're in a different phase of life.

Everyone needs a girlfriend!

Having older and younger friends makes the world seem bigger — and a lot less lonely. Stop looking for peers and focus on looking for people. The bigger your world, the more options you'll have. That's why Love Letters events are open to everyone.
