One thing I've learned, however, is that the dating "basics" are still the same as when women were "foxy," and men were "fine" (and if you're unfamiliar with those terms, you're definitely not over 40.But stick around, you might learn something anyway.) When it comes to dating, the three principles are: 1) relax, 2) pay attention and 3) be yourself. So, here are some tips for those of you who are just getting out of a marriage and haven't got a clue (or for those of you who are over 40, single and have I've heard so many horror stories from women and men who didn't pay attention and missed those all-important clues that told them it was time to move on.

There are people in both of our families who feel that I should try to work things out with my ex-husband and get back together, but that’s not what I am writing about. I am 40 years old, and have many friends who are divorced.

They all seem to be having fun dating again, but also complain that the guys out there are commitment-phobic.

The frum divorced men I personally know have become “players.” I know one woman who has been dating the same guy for eight years.

Take some advice from a gal who has been there, finally figured “the man-thing out,” got married at 47 and now enjoys a stellar relationship with the perfect man…for me. I mean, after all, if every man you meet is unworthy then there is no risk you’ll actually start dating or get in a relationship!

There are two things you can do that will immediately improve your experience with men: 1. Know what you want and must have, and make sure it’s the “Grownup You” doing the picking; not the 18-year-old who still expects all kinds of wacky things that no longer matter and wouldn’t make you happy anyway. Aren’t your “quirks” what you want men to love about you? • How does this belief impact your actions (or inaction), and how is that affecting your outcomes? Yep, that’s a surefire way to avoid ever being hurt or rejected.

Yours will too.) Here are your action steps: • Write your list of qualities, values, and behaviors that attract you and that you expect in a man with whom you spend time.

• Review your list and decide: does this man exist?

In my opinion, most people set the bar far too high when it comes to dating. And believe me, you know what those clues are — that funny feeling in your gut that tells you something isn't quite right.
