You don't have to be lonely.
You don't have to be scared.
What should you look for when you start dating?
Trust and honesty should be at the top of the list. If a
man doesn't have this, the rest of it doesn't matter much. Love can't
survive without trust. You need someone who you can rely on always to tell
you the truth. Otherwise how do you know when it is the truth and when it
isn't? This is the foundation that relationships are built on.
Explore his interests and what he is looking for. Try to
see if you seem to be on the same page not only on interests, but about
general attitudes. You don't have to agree on everything. Relationship deal
breakers are also known as non-negotiable boundaries in relationships, where
compromise is not an
option for a relationship to continue. For instance, you may be
looking for someone to spend a substantial amount of time with and he tells
you he plays golf everyday. You may want to spend more time traveling, but he
doesn’t like to travel at all. He may be a bigot and you take people how you
find them and treat them equally, irrespective of race, religion or ethnic
background. These are "deal breakers."
There are many Internet dating sites.
eHarmony is good, as
it allows you to get to know each other before meeting. Be sure to follow
all the rules of the site -- these rules are there for a purpose.
