Here are a few ways you can ease back into the world of dating.

Getting back into the dating game can be intimidating, especially if you had come from a long-term relationship and slipped into a life of solo riding.

Once you've gotten your feet wet, dating can really be fun. You get to learn about your interests and what's out there for you.

Here are a few ways you can ease back into the world of dating -  hits, misses and all.

Start with a positive mindset

Remind yourself often of the kind of partner you're hoping to find. Remember this each time you're nervous about accepting a date or, yes, initiating one no matter what your gender.

Go in with the idea that you'll either meet a great partner, a good network or a new friend.

Put yourself out there in immediate circles first

Tell your friends and family you're single and looking. This is a safe pool of people to start with as they know you and who you're likely to be a good match with. Once you've exhausted that circle (with not much success), consider online dating. Choose a legitimate site like http://www.lovebeat.co.za/s/  and set up a profile for yourself. you may be surprised by the matches you'll make.

Give it time

Rejection is a necessary and inevitable part of the dating game, let yourself go through it. Remember to flirt, communicate, share in chemistry and get your confidence back. If at first you don't succeed - try, try again.
