I started dating, but I’m doing it wrong

DEAR HARRIETTE: I recently declared myself and started dating again. For most of my son’s life, I was a single mother. He’s a college student now, so I thought it was time.

I used a reputable dating app. I’ve already met two interesting guys, but it didn’t turn out very well.

Anyway, the guy acted like he was in love with me almost instantly. Courting me, winning and having dinner, being the perfect gentleman – all I appreciate – and then crickets. Everything seems to be going too fast.

I don’t know how to go out anymore. It’s been so long. Still, I don’t want to give up.

What else do I need to do to be ready to expose myself, but also to protect myself?

Dating Again

DEAR DATING AGAIN: Slow down. Chances are you should follow the advice you gave your son about getting involved in a relationship yourself.
