Dating : Moved to a completely new location, need dating advice.
For context, I’m 27, male, work remotely and it’s been 6 months since my previous relationship, which lasted a year and was highly horrific.
Since then, I’ve been taking time to focus on myself, but now I feel like going out and meeting new people. I moved to Puerto Rico (I am Puerto Rican, but I spent my whole life in Florida), and I’m now newly and deeply ingrained in my culture. However, I’m intimidated about going places I’ve never been before alone. The language barrier (my Spanish isn’t the best, but my Spanglish is top notch) is a concern, I am more on the introverted side and I know no one. The dating apps haven’t given me much and half the users are tourists anyway, so it’s a short time frame to work with.
Should I just put myself out there and go to the party areas? The idea of going alone and talking to new people alone is intimidating, but I’ll try.
