Is Your Confidence in Point? Do You Feel Good About Who You Are? Jump In!

You have to feel confident about who you are and what you stand for before you can delve back into snagging a date. Why? Because confidence is 1) a great way to capture the attention of someone else and 2) the best way to protect yourself from getting emotionally hurt. Make sure you love you before you try to find somebody else to love you.

Make a List of What You Want and Hard Limits—This Will Be the Start of Your Dating Profile

After a divorce or breakup, you have a pretty solid grasp on what you DON’T want in a partner. You know your hard limits. But DO you want? Make a list of expectations (on either paper or with Olympus dictation equipment.) Include your solid boundaries and some things that you are looking for. Example? If you love an outdoorsy type, but never want to date a smoker, write that down. It’s a good start to rediscovering the kind of person you want to be around.

Your friends are sure to know the best dating websites and apps. The latest in tech advances are some of the best dating methods; ergo, listen to the tech-now generation.

So, go on a date even if you have second thoughts about putting yourself out there again.
