Scared to start dating again
However, if you wait too long, some things happen that make dating more difficult.After some time, you start to enjoy the freedom that comes with being on your own. If you don’t feel like making your bed, there’s no one there to get mad at you for it.I’m not saying I can’t or won’t; it’s just hard to imagine caring enough about someone to want to make room for them in my life.There are some advantages to being on your own – advantages like getting up to pee in the middle of the night and not falling in the toilet because no one has left the seat up.
Going on a date and not knowing the rules because the last date you went on was 20 years ago, can be a really scary thing. Weeding through hundreds of guys who probably want to make a suit of my skin, trying to find that one gem who not only is not a serial killer, but who also chews with his mouth closed can be daunting.
My last date before I got married was at a time when people didn’t have computers or smart phones. Only doctors had mobile phones and they were as big as a shoe box! And which of the trillions of online dating sites should you use? The first time I saw the commercial for that, I thought it was an skit! When I first got divorced I felt like I couldn’t do anything. I didn’t know how to change my furnace filter, change the string on the weed whacker or fix my washing machine when it started leaking all over.
