Im Sherry. I only have the free version of this site right now which means I can reply to emails and "wink". Im Recently divorced and just beginning to figure out dating in the modern world lol. Things have certainly changed but that fear of seeing that look on somebody's face is still the same. While the ex was not without issues, accepting me for who I am was never one of them. Now that I'm single and starting to date again I find myself struggling with feeling comfortable with sharing what is now a part of me wit some one new. You know, like picking the right moment to have "the talk" (too soon could send them running, too long feels dishonest). I am on the last day of a ladies vacation in Mexico with my daughter and niece who spent the week talking to me about on line dating (that's a sobering moment when your kids sit YOU down for a chat). They encouraged me to Google and find a site and here I am.

I have tried "our time" and although I have met some very nice men for coffee or dinner that's been about all I've felt comfortable with because again "the talk".

I'm a very independent, self sufficient woman that is more than capable of taking care of myself but it would be great to find someone who gets me to spend time with, get to know each other and then see how it goes. It would be great to be able to just relax and enjoy meeting people without worries about acceptance.
