    Comment
      Article by Sandra Baker It’s only expected that when you join a dating site, you’re going to want to make use of all the features the site has to offer and one of the favored features are the chat rooms. In the chat rooms, you’ll be able to meet and connect with people much quicker than if you were to wait for them to respond to your messages. Why you can even bypass the whole message system if you truly wanted to! By using the available chat feature on the website, not only will you be able to communicate to someone in real time, but you can have multiple conversations going on simultaneously. Think about it; you could have a local flirt with someone in one chat window...

Sometimes we don’t even know we are stuck, but there are signs…” Signs of Being Stuck Ruminating on the same thing over and over again Focused on the past or going over one situation such as a break up Trying to...

    Comment
    By Dr Lynda Shaw  1.  It’s a good idea to join a club, group or society so when you are ready you can meet like-minded individuals, who may share similar interests whether they turn out to be just friends or more.  Maybe try a walking club, lunch club or a chess club?  It is a good way to get out there again. 2.   Don’t feel guilty if you are interested in meeting someone.   Your late partner would most likely want you to enjoy life.

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon When Brigitte found herself single after her 15 year marriage ended amicably, she was very aware that she was highly unlikely to meet a potential partner through her work (as a teaching assistant) or through her normal social life.  So she decided to take a pro-active approach and try dating online. Says Brigitte “I just wanted to get on with my life and move it forward, and I knew I wanted to meet someone else” It was the best decision Brigitte could have made, as online dating led to meeting her husband Graham. I asked Brigitte how she found the experience of dating online, and to share her personal tips. How did you decide which dating website to join?
