I lost my husband in '01. We were 30 years old. I knew him since I was 12 and then later in our teens we started dating and then married.
I've dated a few times about 3 years after my husband's passing and it was definitely way too soon. I decided to enjoy my children and dedicate myself to them while they spent the last few years home before college.
I'm finally ready to date again. I mean I'm really ready. But I am clueless. I don't know how ppl meet ppl to date. I've tried a couple of online sites but doesn't really seem to be for me. I've had a long road with my weight loss goals and my health goals and my healing after the loss of my husband.
I feel ready to "get out there" but I am not quite sure how to meet men that I'd be interested in dating. So how do you get back into it, especially after some
weight loss but not all the weight loss.
I feel myself considering waiting until I hit that magic number because I have some body image issues. Case in point, saw photos of an old friend on Facebook recently, my age, and wow. She looks fantastic and I immediately felt defeated. I thought, "well, if she is still single what chance do I have?". Which btw I know is ridiculous because I am very aware that I have a lot to offer. But why do those initial thoughts cross my mind??
no I'm not serving snacks at this pity party lol honestly, i'm really not having a pity party, I really want some input here. Give it to me straight.
