Following are some ideas which have helped other people start dating.

  • Start by working on other areas of your social life besides dating and sex. Activities can increase your comfort level about being around new people. For example:
    • Make an effort to see friends and family.
    • Try a new activity.
    • Join a club.
    • Take a class.
  • Make a list of your good points -- particularly what you can bring to a relationship.
  • Think about dating as a learning process with the goal of having a social life you enjoy.
