Of course, when you do meet, take basic safety precautions."Tell a friend where you'll be and when you expect to be home, and meet for coffee in a public place," suggests Dr. He may have seemed great, but loses interest, or is dating someone else, or has problems you will never know about.Second, you can compare what you like and don't like.Maybe one guy is very funny, but you enjoy another man's intellectual stimulation.If it's truly awful, take a step back and wait some more. Gadoua, who runs dating workshops for women, asks them to free-associate words that come to mind when they think of "dating." Not surprisingly, words like "awful" and "dreadful" come up.
So it goes without saying that the odds are in your favor that your dried up raisin of a heart will eventually heal enough to try this love thing again.
Says Gadoua, "too many women hide behind their kids as an excuse not to date." Be upfront and respectful, but don't apologize for wanting to date.
