Your friends tastes and yours might differ, you might actually be insulted with who they have chosen for you to take out on a date.  You might end up thinking your friends do not really know you.  It is best to remember your friends have your best intentions at heart, do not feel insulted or let down.  You never know their friend might become your friend eventually you might not fancy him or her however if you both have the same circle of friends you might hit it of mentally.

Feeling Lonely – Dating After The Affair

It is very difficult getting your life together after finding out your wife, husband or partner has had or is having an affair.

It is terrible situation to realize you cannot trust the person who is closest to you in the world who you may of spent decades with.

The feeling of rejection is terrible, music has no meaning.   Some music will set you off as well.  You feel as though your heart has been ripped out.  You are screaming on the inside.  If you have friends or relatives who have been married for years they do not understand what you are going through.

If you have children with your partner they have not only done the dirty on you they have also done the same to your children and the effect of the betrayal will affect them especially if they teenagers.  You may choose to date an older or younger partner and your children may try to follow your example.

Recovering from the devastating news you have been rejected and replaced by someone else is all about acceptance.  It is a good idea not to say anything bad about your partner.  He or she might have a change of heart and want to come back.

It is a fatal mistake to say anything negative about your partner to your children.  This could end up really back firing in the long run.

Do not start dating straight away.  Give yourself time to recover mentally.  You could end up being with someone who you normally cross the road to avoid.

When you are ready to go out dating again the most important thing to wear on your date is a smile.

If you are attempting online dating take a good dating profile picture in good light.  One of the most important things in the picture is the background.

Tell people where you are going on a date.  Meet them in a public place.  Make your own way home.

Ask for advice from one of your friends about what you are thinking of wearing on your date and if it is suitable.

You never know your partner might have left you because you look a mess and they never had the heart to tell you.

If your partner has left you and really slatted you verbally their home truths might be true.  See if you can learn from their criticisms.  Some of them might not be totally true though.

Some people put others down to bring themselves up and so do not take it all to heart.

Sit down and ask yourself are you ready, is there anything you can change to make yourself more datable?  Take a look at your previous relationships.

Be fun to be with, make interesting conversation.

Take the first step to finding a new you and a new relationship.

Dating for the lonely hearted

It is not ideal going to bars for anyone who is single, most times you come away feeling sad and lonely (drink is a depressant). If you are aged around 40 you might not fit in because you might be older than some people out but still young enough and attractive enough to have a good time.

Lots of singles who frequent bars are just out to have fun and not looking for any long term commitment and at the end of the day why shouldn’t they.

Some of your friends may try to match you up with their friends or work or single acquaintances. They might have good intentions however these types of situations rarely work. I should know someone tried to match me up and the poor lady was not my type. If no one else wanted her why sould I want her. It just never would of worked. I was young then it would have been like something from a version of the 1970’s Inbetweeners.

Night clubs are not the like they were years ago, there is no longer slow dances at the end of the night. It can be very funny at the end of the night when you see the lights come on and every one scatters. The lights can be very unforgiving. I am no oil painting either.

Online dating is better (You are sober). You can take your time. Find other singles who live near you. If you think someone is not all that they seem to be you can chat to them on Skype or in one of the chat rooms and see if you have been chatting to the person who your e-mailing the person who you thought you were chatting to online via e-mail. Nothing is worse to think you have been flirting with someone via e-mail who is the complete opposite they say. Imagine you could have been doing this all in your PJ’s in your living room at any time of night or day. If you keep all of your personal details to yourself you should be perfectly safe.

Online dating matches you up with someone else who has similar interests and values to yourself. How long and difficult this be finding out this information in a bar or nightclub?

Getting in the frame of mind for writing your dating profile:

The mood you are in reflects in the way you convey yourself, if you are stressed you will not want to put much into writing your dating profile.

Take time.  Write your dating profile in stages, go back and review what you have written.

Ask a friend to review what you have written, is it captivating.  Is it powerful enough to capture the reader’s interests and make them think about what you have said?

It is important to reflect you are a kind thoughtful person.  Lots of people on dating websites have had their hearts broken.  They might of lost confidence.  Lost someone dear to them.

The picture you take and the impression you give:

You’re dating profile picture or pictures reflect the person you are.  If you are holding a bottle people will ask if you are an alcoholic.

Writing a good dating website profile

HELP! What should I write in my dating website profile?:

So you’ve decided to try online personals. Well you’ve come to the right place. Here are tips for writing attention getting profiles.

Most online dating services ask standard questions about yourself. It’s great to get the particulars of yourself out of the way, but the key to a good personal ad is what you write in the description & headline fields. Think of your personal ad as an advertisement for yourself. The goal is to draw people in with your headline and keep the reader’s attention by writing an interesting description of yourself.

Your Dating Profile Headline:

The headline for your profile needs to be catchy enough to get someone’s attention in just a few words. You can easily do this by using keywords that best sum up your personality. If you’re funny it should show in your headline. There’s no need to include details about yourself such as your age since that information is listed along with your headline. It’s also important not to say anything that makes you sound desperate like in these examples:

  • Lonely Guy/Girl
  • Sick of being single
  • Desperate for love
  • Tired of Looking

Remember, you’re essentially trying to sell yourself and your positive qualities. So avoid negative statements in your headline and have fun with it! It’s also a good idea to include phrases like “click here” or ask a question like “Are you a movie fanatic?” When you ask someone to do something or to answer a question you’re more likely to get results.

Your Dating Profile Description:

Now let’s talk about the Description for your ad. This is your chance to say in your own words what you’re about. It’s not enough to answer a bunch of generic questions. So GO FOR IT. Let your personality show and don’t hold back. Keep in mind there are hundreds of profiles just like yours that say the same things. So say something to stand out from the crowd and make the reader curious to find out more about you. Talk about things that are interesting to you and stay away from clichйs. And please, please avoid making up things about yourself. You’re only wasting your time and someone else’s by being dishonest. I suggest writing enough to convey what you’re about but not revealing everything about yourself initially. A good rule of thumb is to keep your description within 200-300 words.

Good luck!!
