I just realized...it's been four months since I've been on a date. The closest I've come was yesterday when I had to go to the town two hours away where the last woman I was dating lives to get tires. I let her know I was coming and she met me for a beer. Nothing was weird about it, but it was very clear that the spark is completely extinguished.

Now I'm trying to work up the courage to ask the woman I bought jewelry from for my last girlfriend's birthday if she'd like to go out sometime. I've hesitated because we've been friends for a long time, nearly twenty years. For most of that she was married to my buddy, so of course I didn't even think of her in that way. When he died I was attracted, but involved, so again averted my eyes. When I bought the jewelry she asked me about rebuilding a set of stairs for her. I thought it might be her way of wanting me to be around, but I was already dating, so again my eyes looked away. Recently she tragically lost her son and I felt ghoulish taking advantage of her grieving yet again. Maybe it's been long enough now. She's exactly my age, one of the most beautiful women I've ever met, independent, we talk very easily and there's still that set of stairs...

OK, so my jeweler friend won't return my calls or texts.

I did go on a "date" last weekend, meaning I took a woman I'm only interested in as a friend to see George Clinton. We did have a lot of fun dancing, but it's clear she has zero romantic interest in me. She did like me buying her dinner and drinks though.

Cut to today. An acquaintance through the bike shop was advertising some bookshelves for free on Facebook. In the process of arranging to pick them up she let me know she'd dumped her boyfriend a month ago. I got new bookshelves and a date for the bike shop Christmas party. Have I mentioned she's fist-biting hot?

OK...so she cancelled. Said it hasn't been long enough since she became single and she's avoiding anything that even resembles a date. I'm honestly flattered that she said yes in the first place.

Dating lost its fun years ago. I seem to attract females with mental issues (depression, anxiety, perma-pms...etc) and the rest are usually not so great looking or...2x my size. Makes being dateless a lot better choice

Sixty Fiver started this lame thread in 2009, I think on a Friday night just like this, with the question, "Anyone wanna go and cruise the mall?"

Does anyone know if he ever got his "date?"

Sixty got a girl. So did a couple of other DL originals. Can't believe this thread still lives on.

While the original DLs may have hooked up, there appears to no dearth of DLs to take their place...

Although this thread had nothing to do with it, (or maybe there was a little inspiration)... gnome went off and found himself a beautiful lady, got married, and is now a proud poppa to the cutest little gnomelet.

been a few months,
she was unhappy, let her go before it got worse,
still not used to sleeping to alone or on her side of the bed after 3+ years

shoulder injury has me off my bike and out of climbing shape,

the current one feels like a empty replacement after a few weeks, going to have to get rid of her soon. and she is starting to make this emotional investment, i get "I miss you" text during the day and stuff. kinda sucks.

:-P gate opened
