Movie at drive-in
This is a classic hang-out for our parents. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s too old-fashioned for us. At a drive-in you get to watch movies with others, while maintaining privacy in your own car. And you can share you snacks and sodas between both of you, have your conversations and not worry about being too noisy to your neighbor. Best of all, you only need to pay for your tickets for this great date.
Ice-skating is not just for teenagers or little kids, but is a great way to bring couples together. It’s a great opportunity for you to hold hands, fall down and laugh! And if you are an expert, you can teach her one or two of your ice-skating tricks. She’ll have so much fun she’ll be asking you for next ice-skating date!

Nine Steps to Regaining Self Esteem After DivorceWritten by Debbie Burgin
Continued from page 1
6. Meet some new people.
When couples divorce, there may be a feeling amongst some of friends of that couple who feel as though there is a need to take sides. You may find that you will need to meet new people, and take a step back from that even for a short time. Get yourself some friends that you and your ex don’t have in common. My ex and I used to work in same industry, and as a result, we shared a lot of same business colleagues. So as soon as our relationship ended, I started my own business doing something that wasn’t related in any way, shape or form to what he does for a living. I feel like a zillion bucks .
7. Find new interests…
The next step to rebuilding your sense of self-esteem would be to find some new interests. Find something that makes you feel good/better about yourself. Kickboxing. Kickboxing is an amazing way to get rid of certain frustrations, AND introduces you to a new sport (I brought a picture of my ex to my kickboxing class, and taped it to heavy bag. It surprised my instructor, but worked wonders for me). If you enjoy being outdoors, you might consider joining a running club, a rowing club, or anything else that allows you to be outdoors while meeting new people.
8. Make peace with yourself.
Understand that what happened, for whatever reason that it happened, is done. Over. Let it go. Move on. Whatever kind of bitterness that may have existed when he/she left, is going to have to get lost or it will get in way of your true progress. I know. I did it. Get past it. How do you ‘get past it’? Take time to figure out where you want to be next in your life and be good to yourself. The previous nine steps will help alot.
