I know after breakups people tend to worry about being alone forever, but I'm seriously afraid that it'll happen to me. I'm 33 years old and my girlfriend of two years just broke up with me. And, I just can't help but think that it's just not in the cards for me. The older I get, the more it seems like having a family and a wife might not happen. It's an incredibly depressing thought and was wondering how other people felt with this thought.

I feel that way too. My boyfriend broke up with me a year ago. We lived together. I had dreams, I had hopes and I thought he saw a future together - at least this is what he told me. Well, it was a lie. Mire than two years together, I thought I knew him well... I was so wrong. Leaving the details out, the break up was very painful on my side. He's in my thoughts every day. I still cry sometimes, thinking of what he put me through. I don't see myself dating anytime soon. I'm simply not interested. I'm so afraid of opening my heart to someone as I did with him, and of getting hurt again. And I feel time goes by... I'm getting old alone.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Just be aware that these are self-fulfilling concerns (if not prophecies).
Man, be cool. Be laid back. Get an online dating profile. Do volunteer work. Have a life as full of bliss as you can make it. The world is full of chicks who would love to get with a guy your age. As you get older you realize how many girls in their early to mid 20s are actually most attracted to guys in their 30s and 40s. Seriously. But you do have to be (relatively) attractive, not just physically, but emotionally and mentally as well.
So man up my friend. :) With respect. It's your life. Find your love. Good luck. :)0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
