How Do I Start Dating After Taking 6 Years Off? (1 Of 3)


You've put your love life on the back burner, until now. So, how do you get into the dating game?

Do you find yourself at a point in your life where you've accomplished all of your career goals and aspirations, and can finally focus your attention on love? Are you scared or confused about how to make that transition and what you bring to the table?

In part one of this video series, Dating & Relationship Expert and YourTango Expert, Lori Pinkerton counsels one of her real clients: an incredible businesswoman named Deborah, 59, who's been struggling with this exact problem. She's been single for the past 6 years while focusing solely on her career. Now that she's ready to begin dating, she's nervous that she won't be any good at it and fears she doesn't have the feminine qualities to attract a man. Deborah explains that she feels an underlying sadness and asks for Lori's help. 

Lori's advice in this part includes establishing a "dating strategy" much like a business strategy, and also getting in the habit of being a single woman.
