Whether you’re single again due to divorce, being widowed, or some other circumstance, this isn't your first dance.Do you remember when you got married and thought it was going to last forever? And now you may find yourself asking, "What happened"? If you're re-entering the world of dating, like me, you've probably had what I call "dating re-entry culture shock." Don't worry; you're not alone. Those life experiences have changed you, and they've helped mold and shape you into the person you are today.Hence I was overjoyed to find in the Best of Craigslist a posting from my hometown, Denver, that almost demands a written response.In this anonymous posting, a forty-something man gives his 9 rules for dating, and I have to say that this gentleman has a few solid points.
