So far I can't say I ever had fun with an M&G until yesterday.  We went for a walk and then out for supper.  Had a great evening. 

Just will let things play out and stay calm.  ;D

Good for you NT!

Having fun is job #1 for a M&G.  You did it once you can do it once a week now NT!  ;)

Of course if this one turns into a relationship and is your last M&G that would be OK as well.

pro tip:  Wait a few days to see if he contacts you.  After that it's OK to send him a message that you enjoyed the date and if he'd like to get together again you would like that.

It's okay to google a name (if he'll give you one) an email address or a linkedIn account.
Glad you had fun!

He already contacted me.   :D

Not sure how Facebook does it but he showed up on my list of people you may know.  Maybe he googled me first? 

Really hopeful on this one that I can get to the second date. Everything that I was looking for seems to be in this man.  He is a very tall man and an overweight but he is willing to at least try some of the activities I like.

Good for you, Needy. Fingers and toes crossed that he will behave himself ... Since there is a Winnebago thread, we could road trip to each other for back up  ;D

Hey NT way to go!! Glad you had a good time with him!! Keep us posted on your progress! Some of us are living vicariously through you brave ones!! :)
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

We went for a walk and then sat and watched the waves.  This time I didn't jump out of my skin when he went to hold my hand.  I count that as progress.  He is a very touchy guy always touching my arm or my leg I could get very use to this.

Oooh, Needy -- he likes you :) At least that's what the relationship psych people I read say about those random touchy opportunities. Good for you!

So far so good. I have never met anyone like this man. Last night we went to the movies, this random touchy stuff is doing things to my body that I thought had stopped forever.  ;)

Still underwhelmed by the guys contacting me. Still on my break from dating. Still lonely. It has been 10 weeks.

Sorry Virgo :( Any chance of going to a meet and greet or doing a speed dating event, just to see what it's got to offer?

We don't have speed dating available locally as far as I know. I'm ok taking a break, focusing on projects, but it doesn't take away the loneliness.

Hear that for sure. I see speed dating come up on apps like LivingSocial and Groupon these days. If you are interested, you might look there. Other than that, deciding if the loneliness is for companionship of a friend or of something more intimate. If you have left off going to lunch or meeting friends for coffee, it might help if it's the former. Deciding to try out the dating waters is pretty much the only option for the latter I am guessing. No expert for sure. Anyway: {{{hugs!}}}
