Baumgartner recommends relating it to friendships your child may have had.
Talk about how we meet people we like and as we get to know each other better we get to decide if we still want to be friends, she says.
Whether you're looking for a fling, a ring, or something in between, remember that dating is part of the journey, not a means to an end, Zane says.If activities seem too hard on your schedule or psyche right now, Zane says to look into the Internet dating scene."They are fun, flirty, and super ego boosters," says Zane."I always remind my clients: You've already had your kids and white dress moment, so there should be no rush to the altar again." Don't focus on finding the one; concentrate on meeting new people, developing new friendships, and having fun.
It's worth being upfront about the fact you have kids, Zane says.Don't have shared custody or family or friends in the area? You're older now, hopefully wiser, and have kids to consider.
