She was my fiancée and we were together for 20 years, but she ended our relationship after meeting someone else.

Her life moved on, but I’m stuck.

At 54, I have no children and live on my own in a tiny one-bedroom flat.

I hate going to bed every night alone and waking up by myself too.

I crave that special feeling of being in love with a woman.

I have so much to give to the right person.

I try to remain positive and keep telling myself there is someone out there – I just haven’t found her yet.

But after several knocks my confidence is at rock bottom.
