Being single is fine, but there comes a time, when you have dusted yourself down, and come to terms with what has happened that you decide it’s time you get back out there again, back on the dating scene. Have you lost the knack, lost the confidence or just forgotten where to begin?If this is you, then read these ten tips and we’ll help you get you back into the dating scene: 1.Before getting back out there, make sure you are over your ex of 5 years and he understands his place in your life is the past. They play with the toy truck until they get sick of it, put it back on the shelf, then come running back when they see other little boys playing with it.
