I Broke Up with BF 6 Months Ago. Am I Ready to Start Dating?

Dear Samara,

I lived with my boyfriend for three years and moved out last June. This is my first holiday alone ever. My family lives in New York and I live in Oregon. Work will prevent me from going home over the holidays.

I have been invited to a few parties and I want to go so I don’t get totally depressed. Since I haven’t dated for a while, can you give me some holiday dating tips? I mean, are lonely people easier marks for guys who just want a fun time? I am nervous about dating again, I hope I have not forgotten how, but I think I am ready.
