I Want A Man In My Life Who I Can Trust Again
What is a Woman to do? I want a friendship, chemistry,and to build trust.

"The Fine Art of Squirrel Hunting"  and "Where is Love?" will give you a method for finding a healthy person to date.  Build on your friendships, and create an active social life.  Regular activities with other like-minded people will give you a chance to get to know people before you date them. When you a potential date interact with others, you get a much better understanding of his character.  Choose activities organized around things you enjoy or that are important to you.  Whether you take a class, join an activist group, participate in sports or discussion groups, as long as you enjoy the focus of the group you will meet others with whom you have much in common.  Being around groups of people will also give you a chance to practice letting down your guard a little, and inviting others to be close to you.  I know you can find a safe and satisfying relationship with a little experimentation.  The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again was written to make dating  as an adult safe, fun and successful, so you'll find it valuable.
