Well, as long as they know up front that you are just out for some fun.

I would not even go down that road until you DO know what you want.

I started dating immediately after my divorce. But in my case, I was married for 15 years. I basically had a roommate the whole time. And, I stayed the last 8 years for my son. He was 2 when I had reached the breaking point, but I wanted to see him grow up.

I had those lats 8 years to think about what I wanted in a relationship, and to deal with my feelings towards what would become my ex. So, I was ready to move on after 8 additional years of that nightmare.

In your case - you need to figure it out for yourself before you move on down that road, IMHO

Thanks for all the feedback, I had a miserable marriage (22 years), I never focused on me. Getting my 2 kids raised was my priority. I thought when I got divorced I would go back home to Canada, now realizing this is my kids home, not so sure. I have adult children, 19 and 20, he has nothing to do with them. So trying to figure out what "I" want is foreign, I loved the volunteer suggestion will look into it. Thanks again, all was food for thought.

You could join some Meetup groups too. You can try dating to see how it goes but I agree, know what you want. No matter what you decide, be clear with the other person. If something comes about it, then take it from there. I know how foreign this whole thing can be since it's been so long.
