When I try to interact with people I feel so damaged like I don't even know who I am anymore.This divorce is exhausting and my husband makes it harder every step of the way. I recently caught up with Ellen and Sherrie to see if they could share a few of their favorite tips!Avi: What are your most important tips for online dating? Even the married people like me, who now know what they should have known then, can add to the rules. Here's a line you can use: "I'm really sorry, I think you're a great person, but this isn't working out for me. Unless the SO is in another state or country, dump in person. Go to their place, use the line from the previous item and leave. Full-time job (unless they are in graduate school or the military) c. Sure, the contrast will add excitement for a while, then you'll just end up shouting at each other all the time. Point them in the direction of a 12-step group and walk away. People generally get better at this when they get older, but don't date someone who can't live within his or her means. If you want to treat, then by all means, do so--but your date should at least offer. It shows that either they're not over the ex or they've got a screw loose somewhere. If you're not feeling the chemistry, just BREAK UP. It's good manners and demonstrates that they're considerate. Speaking of considerate, don't date someone who's an ******* to waiters, bartenders, and other service industry folk. Don't string them along, use them for sex, or hope that maybe it'll happen eventually if you hang around long enough--it won't. Don't date a slob if you're a neat-freak, a cat person if you love dogs, a health nut if you're not, a vegetarian if you love meat, a commie pinko if you're a right-wing nutjob, a gun-lover if you're a pacifist, an atheist if you love Jesus, or any other combination of diametrically opposed principles. And people with deep-seated problems will not scruple to steal from you. Speaking of wallets, if he or she doesn't at least OFFER to pick up or split the tab on the first date, don't let there be a second date.The Rules say women don't ask out men first, they always let him pay, they don't have sex too quickly, they don't return his calls right away.
Don’t mention anything about dreams and regrets and include a couple of sexy photos.

A couple months ago I was complaining about dating and a coworker brought me this book called "The Rules" as a joke.
We have so many things in common and she is one of the most caring and benevolent human beings i have ever met, even though she'll never admit it.
Even I am so tired of being lonely and in pain and feeling empty.
