Do you get your hopes up only to have them dashed – no, obliterated – soon after? Moving too quickly early in dating is one of the most widespread dating problems for men and women alike.

It is easy to liken a couple hundred brief texts, (LOL.. I had my first child at age 25 with 2 more to follow.

I am guessing a lot of you reading this are like me – divorced with kids, fairly long marriages, and starting over in your forties. I joined Meet Up and thought that might help, but with my schedule and my kids needs it did not work at all. It was not in my nature and not in my past experiences either. he sweated profusely during it and I found that disgusting.
