Radio star Bianca Dye reveals dating struggles as a single woman in her 50s after hoping for a baby in her 40s: ‘I felt like such a failure’


Bianca Dye shares how dating is harder than ever now that she’s 50 and single.

The Sea FM radio presenter and media personality says she feels «vulnerable» when meeting men, even as she seeks companionship.

“I probably shouldn’t be walking right now. My headspace jumps from ‘I’m so excited to share my life with someone special’ to ‘I’m a perimenopausal, moody, bloated hot mess right now,’” she tells Stellar’s Something to Talk About podcast.

Bianca explained that she had recently planned a hot date only to cancel at the last minute.

“I panicked. I pulled out the pin. I felt like such a failure,” she said, before adding that she left the man a seven-minute voicemail message explaining her cancellation.

To her surprise, the man was impressed that he had ‘heard how honest I was and how vulnerable I seemed’, she said.

However, things didn’t work out between the pair, with Bianca admitting: ‘Alas, I’m still single’.

The TV personality was previously in a long-term relationship with businessman Jay Sandter, but the pair have since split.

At the time, Bianca described her then-partner Jay and his ten-year-old daughter Madi as her family.

In 2020, Bianca said she was planning to get pregnant before turning 50 using egg donation or a frozen embryo she shares with an ex-boyfriend.

But she said the star said at the time that she wouldn’t have felt like she was missing out on motherhood if the pregnancy wasn’t meant for her.

“If my fertility chapter is closed, it’s almost a relief because I did everything I could. As Oprah Winfrey says, “I am the mother of many,” she said.

Also in 2020, Bianca spoke to Stellar about the huge impact her previous miscarriages and IVF attempts had on her physical and mental well-being.

«You’re then expected to go to work and act reasonable while surrounded by people who say they get it but don’t unless they’ve been through it too,» Bianca explained.

“I found solace in posting on social media and communicating these issues on radio and television.
