It's been almost 10 years and I can still vividly remember how nervous I felt when I went out on that first date after my divorce. My rocky marriage had taken so much of my self-confidence, I found it impossible to believe that any man would find me attractive or think I had much to offer. I felt fragile, insecure, vulnerable and really scared.
That said, I do recall there was a tinge of excitement inside me, something that was afraid but also eager to come out and admit the hope I had for a better future and of course, the possibility of falling in love again. Basically, I was a mixed bag of emotions. So, last week, when I received this email from a recently divorced reader asking for dating advice, it brought back those conflicting feelings I think so people find when they decide to put themselves out there again for love and romance.
