The Newly Single Bucket List


Adapting to my new life

Once my divorce was settled, I found that I had to adapt to a new life where companionship wasn’t available at every turn.

My friends had their husbands to stay in with on rainy weekends, while I had my cat, or my children to call if I felt extremely lonely, but they live far away and I didn’t want them to worry.

It didn’t seem like a big fuss at first, but once you look around in a restaurant and see you’re the only one eating alone, well, then you start to feel bad about yourself.

My children pushed me incessantly to make an eHarmony profile. To be honest, I am an almost 50-year woman, so the idea of having to seek attention online seemed ridiculous. They didn’t understand that I liked going to the movies alone.

So that’s how it all started.  

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get going. Once you punch it all your interests and decide on a picture, the notifications start pouring in!

Getting over the first date anxiety

When people ask me what it’s like to meet the person you’ve been talking to online for the first time in person, I’m honest. There’s always that part of me wondering if he’ll be as charming or good-looking as his profile.

But once you get over the first few minutes of awkward pleasantries, you come to find that going out on a first date makes you feel like you haven’t aged one bit.

Before I go out with a guy, I have him call me on the phone so that we can make dinner arrangements or have a coffee. I think hearing his voice shows me that he has taste and is respectful.

It gets easier with time

I won’t lie and boast that online dating doesn’t have its obstacles. Sometimes there are dead-ends when you don’t get a response, but putting yourself out there in the online dating sphere has more benefits than you’d think.

I had nothing to lose, so I got up enough courage to take the leap, and now I am casually dating like I never did even before my marriage.
