When life plunges you back in the dating pool you can follow these tips to push away those normal jitters.
Don’t think: I’m too old, tired, or fat to do this. Do think: I just turned back the clock for a second chance.
Don’t think: I save time by laying out exactly what I want. Do think: Discover the person in front of me.
Don’t think: I have no clue how to relate to a new person. Do think: I can use the Internet to learn how to flirt and try out my answers about my past.
Don’t think: I should be wiser by now. Do think: I’m braver, and I’ll get better at this.
