Following the end of a relationship with a guy I thought I'd marry, I had a pretty bad few years with multiple deaths of family members.
After my father's passing earlier this year, I think I will have time to devote to dating again. However, I don't really feel I know how to feel romantic love any more, if that makes sense. It's been 4 years since anything serious has happened and a year or more since I've even flirted with anyone. I'm not bitter, just sort of apathetic and/or out of practice.

Don't. It's not worth it any more- spare yourself the hassle, drama and trouble and steer clear of falling in love. Besides, we're all past our 'use-by' and 'sell-by' dates now that we're over 30- unless you've got enough fame, a big enough fortune, or other assets which can be used and stolen instead of you and your own body, then we have no prospects of anyone ever genuinely desire us or offer their love to us ever again. I suggest giving up, accepting that we've been defeated and failed completely in that aspect of life- sex, love, family etc- and devoting your efforts and passions elsewhere, toward another less bleak aspect of your life. You're apathetic rather than bitter, so you're already more than halfway there.1

It just happens. Even when you're not trying or expecting it. Can happen by chance at the most random time. If you are meant to fall for someone, you will anyway. Also, flirting will come naturally if you have a connection with them. Don't worry about it. I don't think it's something you can really plan for.1
