Dating was never my forte', and marriage OBVIOUSLY wasn't something I excelled at, so I thought I would ask you...if you have been through a divorce, what did you do to jump back into the dating pool?
I was definitely thinking that glitter and assorted sparkles should be involved. Maybe Karaoke...My Janis Joplin is flawless!
Bad idea? OK. So what does one do? I guess the first thing I need to know is, How long did you wait? I am thinking that NEVER dating is probably a good plan, but I am smart enough to recognize that I am feeling jaded at this moment.
When you get over your jitters and either ask someone out, or accept an invitation, how do you approach it? What questions do you ask of them, as you try to get to know them? I found this list of questions you should ask a date, and it seems like most could apply to either gender. But do they give you information that helps you REALLY get to know them?
What questions do YOU ask, and why do you think you glean insights into that person through their answers?
How quickly do you judge that they are either 2nd date worthy, or, "text from a friend that your house is burning down," necessary?
I'd love to know...
