I'm not really sure I'm near wanting to date right now, or to go through the whole "find a relationship" thing, but I'm sort of vaguely not horrified by the idea anymore, so.. yay?
I bring this up because it came up in conversation the other day with a friend and they got all excited because they thought of their cool, attractive, nice, interesting friend and they were SO excited to show me a picture of him because they were sure I would find him handsome too (and they assured me he's a great guy) so we went over to a computer and they brought up this guy's facebook profile and I started laughing as my friend looked at this guy's photo of him and his wife and two kids!
"Oh," said my friend, "I guess he and I haven't talked in a while... sorry?"
So yeah... if you're wanting to get your single friend to consider maybe thinking about dating a friend of yours, you might want to make sure said person is actually single first.
