    Depending on how great your need may be for companionship/bumpin' uglies, you may want to consider putting up some coin for one of those Net-based personal ad thingies. I've never seen one of these myself, but seeing as how every third commercial seems to be an ad for these types of things, I'm guessing it's become pretty mainstream.

    There's still, for whatever reason, an occasional stigma to doing this, but I'm not sure why. I had a boss who went on one of those sites and ended up with a very attractive, thouroughly charming and quite intelligent long-term girlfriend.

    Wicked,

    That truly sucks. For your sake, I hope the split was mutual.

    As for getting back on the market, wait on that for the time being. Don't try to force anything. Just be yourself.

    A few suggestions:

    1. Hang with your buddies. Just don't be the whiny, "I can't believe she's gone" buddy. Nobody wants to hang around a downer, so don't be one.

    2. Make a list of what you want to do. Go to Vegas, drive cross-country, whatever. Just do what you want to do before you get involved in another serious relationship. If you wait, you'll either never do them or have to bring your significant other along and if she's not really into what you want to do, that'll ruin (or at least diminish) your experience.

    3. Save money, save money, save money. Nothing drains the ol' wallet faster than a girlfriend. I can't believe the amount of money I hemmorhaged while I dated the current Mrs. Hack. Now, she wishes we didn't spend $100 or more a night going out 2-3 times a week. Thanks for telling me that now, sweetheart.

    4. Take risks. If you're single and unattached to a community, apply for that job that might just be out of your reach. Or if you want to try another profession, now is the best time to give it a shot.

    5. Let love come to you. Don't try to force anything. Just relax and be yourself. Who knows? You could be like Frank, and one day, the woman who passes you the salt or who bumps into you at a bookstore could be the one. Or she could just be a great lay and confidence booster for a few weeks. Remember, the next one isn't always The One. Be patient and you'll realize if it's meant to be.

    That's all I come up with for now. Hope this helps.

    PS -- If she dumped you and you already purchased her gift, return it and buy something for yourself. A TV, stereo, lap dance, whatever. Or, blow it at a casino somewhere near you.

    Both of my sisters and my best friend from college met their husbands on Internet dating sites.

    It's surprisingly easy to meet women at either the supermarket (late at night) or a good bookstore.

    Did she cheat on her fiance with you -- twice -- tell you that she wanted to be with you, lead you to believe that she would end things with said fiance to be with you, and then get married to him anyway? Cause if not, you'll be back on your feet in no time. Freelance's lap dance suggestion is a glorious one.

    I concur. Everyone, no matter what they look like, has to eat.

    SC,

    I'm not wicked, but if I were him, the last thing I'd need is an appointment with Dr. Neil Clark Warren.

    My lawyer sister used that one. The other one and my friend used match.com. Course now you have Dr. Phil with that one.

    Can't say I'd use any of them immediately after a relationship ended.

    I would recommend against hanging out in the feminine-hygeine aisle, however.

    Or by the self-help books.

    Frank, the science fiction section is sort of a no-no as well.

    My thing with this is when I'm in the grocery store, I'm there to get my groceries and get out. Does anyone really want to get picked up on in grocery store? Just a question. Because if the answer is that's fine, then I can start looking there.
