Dating: Are You Ready?

Life can be lonely without companionship. The need for belonging, love, and affection is a potent force that shapes various aspects of a person’s life. Whether one admits this inherent need for companionship or not; it exists, and is ingrained within us from the moment we are born. But is there really a special someone out there for everyone?

We all know that the dating game can be tricky, and as time moves on and we watch all of our friends coupling up and starting lives of their own, that longing for love can become more intense. Sadly, many singles who want to be in a relationship deep down eventually get tired of the game and lull themselves into a life of loneliness.

Dating can be tiresome, particularly for mature men and women who want something deep and meaningful, rather than just a fling. Dating after divorce or grief is a hard step to take. Did you know that there are specific divorced dating sites to help you meet other singles from similar walks of life? People are often afraid of giving relationships another go, especially after being hurt, but what’s important to remember is that dating is a numbers game. Four out of five people you go out with will end up as just a friend – but it’s the one in five that counts. It’s the one in five that could be your soulmate.

Or, maybe you’ve never been married. You’ve always been single and you’ve always been ok with that. You’ve thrown yourself into your work to suddenly realise you want someone to share life with, have kids with or retire with. It’s never too late.

So, ask yourself – are you ready? Whether it’s been years after after your divorce was finalised or months after a horrible break up, your head must be in the right place before jumping into dating. It’s so easy to have a negative view of yourself, especially if you’ve been through heartache. Don’t fall into the trap of believing no one will love you. To help with your confidence, make sure you’re well groomed and well dressed – those weekends spent in pajamas are over.

You need to remember that times have probably changed from when you last dated. Are you going to stick with what you know? Or are you going to go with the times? If the latter, then it’s time to get online. If you’re thinking that searching for companionship online is only for a small minority of people, well that’s just not true. Online dating is one of the best ways to widen your search, rather than just hoping that you’ll meet someone in the coffee shop. With a free Dating sites such as, you won’t have to scroll through endless dating profiles that are totally irrelevant to you. They offer extensive filters that enable you to find the right personality match to give you the best chance of finding a meaningful relationship, as well as keeping you safe throughout the dating process.

It can be scary and daunting putting yourself out there in this world you do not know, a world you’re not used too. If you can, try to have fun with it! Happy dating!

  • Great article! In fact, online services are real treasure for people nowadays. When I was married because of online banking I discovered that my XH was cheating on me (I got notifications when he paid the dinner at the hotel in our town for the night he told me he was out of office for business meetings for a couple days), I found out that do it yourself divorce in california is cheaper and applied for divorce online (we still had to meet at the court, but the biggest part was done online and I met my new boyfriend at dating service. It’s been 18 months since we started dating,he recently proposed me and I keep joking that we have to get married online.
