I'm in a good place after my divorce, but how do I date at my age?

DEAR DEIDRE: FINALLY, I’m in a good place after my divorce, but I’m scared to start dating again.

My ex and I have been separated for nearly four years. He’s 56, I’m 62.

If I’m honest, I had a bit of a breakdown when he announced he wanted a divorce.

But I’ve turned things around these last few months.

I got a new job, decorated the house and cut down on my drinking. I’m feeling the best I have in years.

All that’s missing is a man. But how am I meant to find one these days?

My daughters, 32 and 27, tell me it’s all about online dating, but reading about all the scams has put me off.

DEIDRE SAYS: Online dating is a great way to meet lots of people in a short amount of time, but it’s not for everyone.

Strong relationships often start as friendships. Embrace opportunities to meet new, like-minded people. Film or sports clubs are good as you already have something in common.

Find groups on meetup.com. I’m also sending you my support pack on Finding The Right Partner For You.
