I recently ended a long relationship that could have culminated in marriage. I knew I was making the right choice when I decided to go out on my own but now I am having trouble adjusting to my new life alone. I've been in a serious relationship for so long that I don't even know how to go on casual dinner date. What advice can you give me on how to start my new life?
Confused in Staten Island
Dear Young lady,
I know it is not easy to adjust to a new. Don't dwell on the past. Look to the future. Go to some interesting places like the Y where you will meet nice young men. Some youth groups have dances that should be interesting. Don't sit alone. Go to some affairs hosted by the colleges. You don't want to waste your time with just anybody and I can see that you are a bright young lady and you should meet some bright young men. Don't sell yourself short and don't dwell on the past. Look to the future and smile. If you ended a relationship after a long time you should have learned just what you want in a husband. So keep your eyes open and he will show up. Keep smiling. You have a lot to offer I can tell.
Good luck. Let me hear from you - I'm interested.
