I wanted to ask you what’s a good way to get back to dating after years off the market?
Dear Starting Over,
I don know how long it’s been since you’ve dated but times have changed. Due to technology and social media, there are many options when starting over. There’s online dating and speeddating, and even meetup groups for singles.
The approach you take depends on how much time you want to invest in dating and what tools work for you.
So, venture out and feel it out. Sign up for a free trial on Match.com. Attend a speeddating event in your city (if you Google speeddating, you should find these events). Try free online dating sites like OkCupid. Join Meetup groups for singles in your city. You can also join Meetup groups based on hobbies and activities.
Bottom line, you have to be proactive. You won’t meet someone sitting on your sofa. It’s about networking, mingling and putting yourself out there. That’s the best way to reenter the world of dating. But you have to be ready. If you’re not, it’s all in vain.
Love strongly and wisely,
