This is fantastic advice, Michelle Birge! I especially agree that there is no shortcut other than to date, date, date! You have to put yourself out there.

Additionally, cutting your losses is key, too. I stayed in WAY too long in my first relationship coming out of my marriage. Lots of lessons learned the hard way!
