Last night I found a girl who looks awesome and for the first time since my separation I sent a message to a girl. I'm a divorced mom of one, newly re-acclimating to dating.

I'm a black woman, my ex husband is white, our daughter is bi-racial (obviously).

Went to therapy, had suspected PTSD and a lot of anxiety.

Took 2 years to piece my emotional self back together and ensure as best I could I wouldn't be dragging anything into my next relationships. I had never been a single adult having been in a relationship from 19 to 28 and a dad for the majority of that.

Issue then was financially I couldn't justify dating. Tinkered with returning to school to finish out degree, tried new hobbies, figured out who I was as adult-single me while piecing together my financial life.

That said, I recently started a job that puts me back into financial independence. I reapproached my dating profiles and felt for the first time some positivity and hope was going into them rather than trepidation. But I sent something that wasn't self-defeating, verbal vomit, or generic. I'm not sure if contributors in this sub will have any experience with this, but you generally give great advice and feedback, so I'm coming here for suggestions.

During your dinner (and after, if you go someplace else) please feel free to take some selfies with your smart phones as well to give us a sense of how the evening is going. At the end of the night, one of you should hang onto the receipt, and snap a photo of it or scan it and email me a copy. Dinner and drinks at the restaurant will be paid for by The Post, up to $150. (They will have our payment information on file and will charge us directly up to $150, so you don't have to pay and then be reimbursed.) Anything above that amount, though --and you're welcome to go above that --will have to be paid by you. That is, I am the one assigned to interview you and write up how your date went. I have always struggled with when to end things with someone... And part of a relationship is accepting the inevitable faults/imperfections of your partner... But upon reflection, maybe I’m doing more harm than good? What are some important things you learned about relationships and perhaps even yourself in the dating process that resulted in what you look for now?

Afterward, you should expect to talk to a writer about your date; he or she may contact you beforehand to check if you have any unanswered questions. We're very excited and can't wait to know how everything goes. I just learned about the timing today, and seems youre going out tomorrow! Might you have any time to check in PRE date - like later tonight, or tomorrow midday? When should you push through and keep trying with someone and when do you decide to cut things off out of kindness/not wanting to string along? What are the priorities and key qualities of a potential partner? I speak to my mother most weeks and she usually asks if I'm dating anybody.

I'm wondering if anyone else has dealt with this, and if so how they've handled it.

So about 4 months ago an intense 2 month fling ended out of nowhere, like I've never been more blind-sided in my life kind of nowhere.

The date lasted 3.5hrs and there was never awkward silence or the lack of things to talk about. Was it ever the same as the last time you’re ever it?
