  • Take a deep breath. Remind yourself there is nothing to be so nervous about. Its just a date. NOT an arranged marriage. Dating is like riding a bike. This date is not your Ex. Your also not a teenager going on her first date. You have to want to have a nice time. It's common to be nervous about a date after being married and divorced, but you have to move forward with your life. You'll be fine, and so will the date.

  • My best advice is to have fun! It sounds like you've earned it. If he's a very nice guy you should have nothing to worry about. Relax and have a great time.

  • You will be fine just be yourself and don't tell him everything about your life before him on the first date. don't mention wanting a relationship just have fun.
