What’s the best way a guy who has been out of the dating scene for some time can get back in the game?

Before venturing out into the dating world, take time to figure out who you are and what you are about such as listing a personal inventory of goals, lifestyle priorities, what works and what won’t. You want someone who is the best fit in terms of lifestyle temperament and connection.

On a date, relax and let the real you shine. Be yourself and encourage your date to do the same. Smiling and enjoying the moment is contagious and before you know it, you both will be at ease with the situation. Focus less on whether or not romance will bloom and pay attention to who the other person really is and what makes her tick. Ask questions and listen with genuine interest. The more questions you ask, the better you can determine if you like to see her again.

The first person you meet will probably not be the one; however, in the event that she is, do not scare her off by being too serious too soon. Give yourself the opportunity to meet new people. Know that even if the date doesn’t work out there is still something to learn from the process. Have fun!
