Be upfront with people, don’t lie and most of all, be yourself.
Too often divorcees spend their date nights talking about what went wrong in their last relationship. If you’ve got that date then enjoy it – keep it light, have fun and leave your ex firmly in the past. Do you know how many times people fail before the make it? Have some fun with it, take the chance to take yourself less seriously. Look at yourself like you do when you think of the mistakes you did 20 years ago – smile!
Call up some of your friends and go out together – there’s safety in crowds when you’re just starting out again.
Look into local groups such as book clubs, cinema clubs or try something new!
Take note on the qualities about your ex that you liked, and note their qualities that you absolutely could never live with again, and drove you to near madness.
