Some people have the clarity after divorce to know that they want to be in an exclusive, committed relationship and they have a clear picture of what that looks like.
Many people however don’t have that and if you’re one of these, then casual dating is a great way for you to find out what you’re looking for and what will make you happy. Going online is the best way to meet other singles but that can be daunting especially if you use a premium service that requires you to invest significant time creating your profile and completing personality questionnaires.
Even if it’s something you haven’t done before, if someone invites you on a date to try it, it’s a perfect opportunity to be adventurous.
