Getting back into the dating world

Let’s face it. The idea of dating again is scary! The dating rules have seriously changed since the days of land line phones and actual face-to-face conversation. With today’s social media craze, meeting someone the good ole fashion way just isn’t the same anymore. If you have been out of the dating scene for a while, chances are you may need some catching up to do.

Take these tips into consideration when jumping back on the dating train.


Get Text SavvyGet technology savvy

In today’s society, we are all about using the latest technology to communicate. Hardly anyone uses the actual phone to talk anymore. It is either through text messaging or through social networking such as Facebook. Make sure to brush up on your social networking skills so you can use these free tools as dating resources.



Online DatingDating Sites are a Do
Back in the day, dating sites were pretty frowned upon and if you had a personal profile, you probably considered yourself and anyone on it “desperate.” Well not anymore. Dating sites have gotten so popular because it is the easiest way to meet an array of different people. Sites like eharmony.comhave matched thousands of couples and have had a huge success rate. Try it out. It’s safe and secure and you don’t have to go on a million dates before finding Mr. right. You can narrow down the list by their extensive profile background.


Don’t expect too much

Just have fun with the experience of dating again. Don’t go into the situation thinking you have to find your husband by the third date. This is your chance to start from scratch, so make every date an experience. Take the dates as “free interviews” and figure out what you like, what you want, and what you definitely don’t want in a potential spouse.



Don't Bring Up Your Ex!Leave your EX out of the conversation

This is not new news ladies! We all know how easy it is to bring up your last relationship. DON’T DO IT. If you still have the tendency to bring up stories of your ex, then chances are, you aren’t over him and you have no business being out on a date. Yes it’s so easy to bash the hell out of him to your new fling, but that’s only going to make yourself look bad (and sometimes a little crazy). If he brings up your last relationship, just keep it simple and tasteful as to why it didn’t work out. He doesn’t need to know how much of a douche bag he was or why he cheated on you multiple times. The past is the past, so let it be and move on.
