Dating baby steps

My toe is in the water.

I gave out my phone number, and accepted a phone call from a gentleman I met online.

It was awkward, but I just went with it.  He talked a lot about himself.  I let him lead.  I had things to say, too, and I think I carried my end of it pretty well.  I don't feel sparks, but he does seem like a nice guy.  It must have been okay, because we talked for an hour! 

We're scheduling a coffee date.  I don't have high expectations for it, but I do think it's good practice.  I think I'll like him in a general way, though at this point I don't have any sparks.

And I have a coffee date with someone else scheduled for Wednesday - someone possibly more interesting!  I haven't spoken with him, as we're just leaping straight to coffee, but I like his online profile.

Right now, all I can imagine are a couple of coffee dates, nothing more.

But it's good to be back.

  1. Dating after a divorce can seem kind of intimidating. Not only have you been 'off the market' for a little while, but you probably have some baggage that you are carrying along with you. Because of this, most men are kind of shy about dating after they get divorced.
