How to date for the clueless?

I never dated when I was in school and a guy 'pursued' me when I was 24 becoming my first and so far only boyfriend. We dated, became engaged, and lived together for 13 years before he decided he loved someone else and I went off on my own again. Now after 3 years of 'being single', I still have NO CLUE about dating or meeting someone :( I'm sure he and I would never have dated if he hadn't been so persistant - I ignored him for the most part the few times we met.
I really don't want to marry or live with anyone again - never did and even less want to know - but wouldn't mind dating now and then. I've never been a social person though - I'm a home body and tend to get home from work and read, paint, etc. I've tried a few times, but always end up with nothing to say and come off as 'cold' or 'not interested' as someone I did sort of like told my roommate.
I guess I'm in the 'awkward dating phase' that most people go thru in high school, but being an only child and a loner then too, I really never learned anything about dating. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
