Here, Lofton shares her best advice for getting yourself back on the market.
What NOT to Do On Your First (Rebound) Date Larvetta Says…
Don’t think of it as a rebound. Don’t talk about your ex-boyfriend, baby’s daddy, or your luck with other dates. This date should be a fresh start!
Don’t be late.
Don’t talk about yourself and your work, nonstop.
Don’t talk on the phone or send text messages to others.
Do help to plan the evening; recommend where you want to go, just in case he doesn’t ask you to share some thoughts.
Always say “thank you,” at the end of the date … whether it was good date or not. This may or may not have been a love connection, but your date did take the time to hang with you.
Always be kind, kindness goes a long way.
