    I've been told by coworkers that she's single and looking. She doesn't usually work from my office, but she's going to be here this week, so I'm going to take advantage of this rare opportunity. If she agrees to a date, it will be my first date in 10 months. I am excited!

    So wish me luck! :)

    Scheduling has been tricky, but the date is on - two weeks from now!

    I need this to work! I took in a roommate last year just to keep from being completely alone, but I still feel like I've been emotionally and socially isolated for well over a year now.

    Dinner happened! It felt more like a business dinner between colleagues than a date, but at least it happened.

    Great man ! It happened because of YOU. It shows what happens when you or anyone takes the initiative. Nothing changes if nothing changes. And you caused something GOOD for yourself. You are going to have great things ahead for you. Keep on doing positive things with your life. :)

    We were supposed to go see a movie this week, but she kept having to work late. Instead, we had lunch together earlier this week, but it still feels more like a business meal (aka entertaining the customer) than a date. It's lacking the context for a date. I get the feeling she's either too busy for a relationship, or she just isn't interested.

    Don't push too hard with it. But try a couple of more times. She might of been super busy, the past week, and or super shy romantically, last relationship didn't go well. etc. Tell her your still interested in seeing a movie and see what she says :- )

    My advice would be to be completely open with her about your feelings and about you liking her. Make sure she knows how interested you are.

    I agree. She will be back next week, so I will try one more time.

    The main thing is that you tried. I hope it works out, but even if it doesn't, it's a starting point.

    When you like someone, you should always be OK with them not liking you back.
    I am happy that you tried.

    Found out today that travel budgets have been cut. She will not be here next week after all. It would seem this one is a dead end.
