I'm writing you today to ask your advice on my love life.
I've been single for a long time, in fact the only real relationship I've had was a train wreck and ended with me feeling like I never wanted to date again.
I've realized that staying alone for the rest of my life is silly and I've been ready to be in a relationship again for a while, but to me online dating is just as useless as going to a bar, and I feel like I don't know how to find anyone in my day to day life.
What do you suggest I do, and do you have any tips for me?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Ending a relationship is tough and it takes time to heal.
It sounds like you are ready to get back in the saddle again. Do you have any hobbies? Pursue those. There is nothing like a shared interest to start a spark. Look at www.meetup.com for something you may be interested in.
There are lots of groups ranging from hiking to playing chess to spirituality for people of every age. Check out your local paper for activities going on in your area.
And if you don’t find someone right away, don’t despair. When you are doing something you enjoy people of both sexes will be attracted to you when they see your enthusiasm.
You want to find your best friend; someone you enjoy conversing with every day about a multitude of topics.
Someone who supports you in your career and encourages you to be the best person you can be.
Even coffee shops can be a place to go on the weekends. I have seen lots of single people at them on a Saturday morning or night.
