Dating... how to get started

(5 Posts)

I'm ready to start dating again after my divorce, but am getting nowhere fast! Many reasons behind it

Work from home 9/10 so rarely meet anyone new
Hardly any single male friends /friends of friends
Naturally introverted and not great at selling myself

So! I set up a profile on tinder first, only ever had contact from weirdos! Deleted that and created an account on POF, the only guys who contact me are oddballs / pervs - so far! I've been through tonight and updated my profile a bit which I hope will help.

I also went to a local singles night last month, which was ace fun - but I was so nervous I just made a dick of myself mostly!

Any advice from seasoned pros would be welcome! I've never really done the 'dating' thing. My ex-husband was originally a friend made at a hobby. I no longer have time for hobbies!

No help from me I'm afraid, just wanted to say I am in a similar position. I work from home, my friends are all in relationships & I don't get out much. I've tried OLD but they all seem to be a bit odd or very unphotogenic.

Hopefully someone will come along with some ideas we haven't thought of.
