I've been separated entirely for over a year and a half now and divorced a year. I feel ready to date, nothing serious, NOT hookups or sex or anything like that, but I mean going out to dinner, catching a movie, having a day date or something.
I'm so lost. I don't have Facebook and have terrible social anxiety. I'm extremely introverted, but you'd never tell if you met me on the street. I am very friendly and smiley and talkative, but it is a chore. A total. Chore. I stay in a lot. I don't have many friends, another thing that I know surprises people.
I feel like I'm in good shape in a conversation way, but otherwise, I really lack the tools for getting out there.
I'm really not into online dating, I just do not like any personal information online. Not my name, not my photos, certainly not my likes and dislikes.
I joined a meetup.com group for people with social anxiety but I really don't know if I will actually go to a meeting. Also seems like a lot of older folks in my area. That's not to say they know someone my age...
Anyway, I'm lost. What should I do, what did you do? Are you like me? Can you tell me about your dating experience post divorce? I've not dated anyone since I was a young teen... I had married my high school sweet heart.

Join a gym to get your social skills working again, pay for a few lessons with a personal trainer, these will help you through that barrier you say you have, and after this, you will be able to attend those meetings, good luck, x0
