I am 26 and I have a 4 year old boy. I have not dated since his dad and I broke up over two and a half years ago. I am in college and there is a guy in one of my classes that is really attractive and he seems nice. I don't sit by him and I have had little interaction with him. I feel so out of the game and I don't even know what to attempt to do to get his attention or let him know I'm interested in getting to know him more. I need advice badly, please. Also, should I wait to make any move until the course is almost over to minimize any weirdness if he's not interested?
Most Helpful Girl
Yup, I can help. I started dating for the first time in 15 years. Two teenage kids and I'm still like a wide-eyed teenager when it comes to dating a guy. Jittery as a school girl about whether I'm wearing the right thing, whether I'll mess up what I'm saying, whether he'll like me DESPITE the fact that I come with definitive baggage? Hmm.
Then I realize I'm a friggin' catch. I'm nearly 40 and look like I'm not a day over 25. I'm full of energy and guys tend to like that I'm funny and easy-going. Overnights are still something I'm skittish about, but that's most likely the result of being monogamous for the better half of a 10-year marriage and celibate for the rest of that time, then having my catbox on ice during the separation and divorce proceedings. It's an awkward time at best, but some guys are patient and understanding. The others? They're not worth the time, effort, or perfume. NEXT.3
