how did you start dating after a divorce?

I have been single for almost 2 years and have entertained the thought of "dating" but when it comes down to meeting people I dont know where to start and sometimes get cold feet. I was with my ex for 11 years before the nasty divorce. Where did you start? Did you ever go threw the cold feet thing?

  • Good morning to answer your question. I was newly divorced after a marriage of 13 years and was working in a stock room where we sent out parts to be plated by another company. I was bored one day and didn't have enough parts to fill a box for shippment so I had to add in cardboard as a filler. On the top one I just wrote Hi hope you have a great day today with a big smiley face. When that shippment came back and I opened it there was a note written on cardboard from them saying hi and thank you for the note it helped brighten up a very boring day. Every time I sent out a shippment I included a note in the box and always got one back. We wrote back and forth like this for 2 years before we actually meet. It helped to really get to know some about the persome who I was talking with in the notes. Long story short we got together and were married for 14 years. now that has ended and I'm with my DH who I meet on the internet

  • the cold feet thing is normal just take it slow and dont jump in the sack with him too early. let him wait a while,get to know him. if after 2 months he hasnt gotten any sex and he looses interest then he was just chasing the panties thats all. i know 2 months may sound like a long time especially when u are both attracted to each other and spend lots of time together but it sure helps weed out the ones who just wanted to toot it then boot it...

  • I started earlier than I expected to. I was at a restaurant/bar with some friends watching the Celtics in the finals last spring and I said something funny and heard a guy behind me also laugh. I turned around and we exchanged a few comments and later he started talking to me more and asked for my number. Been dating him for 5 months now.
