    If social networking is important for dating, can I get help starting one?

    If I want to start dating again, is it awkward to say that I don’t use social networks? I lived with my fiance for 3 years, until 2 years ago. I didn’t start a Facebook account, because she tried to control me, and she didn’t like the idea of me having an account (although she had one and actually admitted that she was interested in men she met online). After breaking up, I’ve been a workaholic with a broken heart and a lot of bad luck. I started dating someone else– I noticed her notifications on her phone had 90 messages, and she thought it was weird that I wasn’t on any networks. Recently, I tried to sell a car on a FB account I created, but nobody trusted me because I had nothing in it. I’m in my (early) 30s and a little behind the times. How do I get started? I know more people use Instagram these days, should I make an account there? How can I move on from the “weirdness” of an empty account? I have a few close friends I can add.

    Facebook often gives you friend suggestions, you can also joi different facebook groups and start making friends that way x
