Sad about being alone for so long

So I was basically crying about how lonely I have been the past year, not dating one woman the entire time.

Does this mean that my dating years are over, or is it just that I need a certain break and am keeping myself alone on purpose? I’m only 55 years old, so in the sizable scheme of things I should still be in the dating pool.

I’m just fine with being alone for a little bit, although I don’t want to be a 67 year old who has just given up entirely on dating ever again. My aunt is a Heating and A/C tech and basically just works on ductwork while my friend and I were in the day and then goes home in the evening to babysit her niece. I don’t want to become jaded the way she is because living alone the rest of my life just doesn’t sit well with me. I met some ladies at the heating supplier shop where I work, although I mainly spend most of my time in the back of the locale working on heating and cooling devices and programming wireless temperature control units for clients. I am not going to meet anyone if I don’t change my attitude, so some heavy inner self labor is in order for the next few weeks. Anyways, today I am heating and cooling my knees because I am experiencing some pain in both of them from 40 years of playing beach volleyball. I am basically going to have to quit the sport I appreciate though because I have basically killed all of the cartilage in both knees at this point.
