Update:  the object of my affection gave off too many red flags to even consider pursuing... the main one being ditzy, unreliable, forgetful, and flaky.  This woman could not remember when Easter was, two days after Easter Sunday (andwe had talked about our individual plans the Friday before Easter)!!!  Put several other recent examples like this together and I start thinking, "Do I want to date someone this wigged out mentally?". Disappointingly, the answer was no.  She is also a divorced single mother, which oftentimes can be a recipe for disaster in the long run (especially when the child is only 10 years old).

One good thing about potential dating of coworkers is that you can screen out the red flags before even going on one date!  ;)

Yes, another masterpiece!  I would note, however, isn't there really only one member of Aglaia (Gino *Fioravanti)?  Toso just does "editing".  Both my limited cdr digipak releases by Aglaia on hic sunt leones are only signed by Gino...

Rush--Buenos Noches Motor City.  2 disc live show from the Hemispheres album tour 1978.  Awesome find this weekend at a tiny record shop.  It's a Bootleg soundboard recording.  It's probably online somewhere as a download.  Like Spirit of the Airwaves CD released in UK recently, this also sounds better than the crappy sound on Exit Stage Left.  Rush was definitely one of the greatest bands of the 70's and early 80's, that's for sure.

Bill, excellent take on this and I planned to do it this way (the casual friend-like activity first, then go from there), so nice to read someone who agrees with my thoughts exactly.  I've found the "wanna go out sometime" approach often doesn't work too well as its too direct and scares some women off, but as you said it may work with older women.

Hahaha!  Good one.  No, the silent one is a male coworker.  But the woman may join the list if I gaffe this up!

Hmmm, well IMO coffee is a total cliche.  But thanks for the suggestion.  :)

Actually though I just am trying to gauge her interest so things are not awkward in the future.  Especially since she is a coworker in the office.

Hey all,

I am looking for opinions on a dating situation.

A woman I'm interested in has shown signs of mutual interest.  She's a single mom who in unattached.  Last week while chatting she told me when she's not hanging with her daughter she volunteers at two separate organizations.  She commented that she wants to cut back on her volunteer hours "to have more time to herself.". She offered this information without me asking about her free time or what she does on weekends. 

Does this sound like a subtle invitation for me to ask her out or get her number?

As with many guys, I often have trouble reading signs that a woman wants me to make a move.

Any ideas/comments greatly appreciated.  Thanks!!

Thanks Bill and Mike.  Yes, this is exactly what I decided to do.  It's still awkward to sit six feet from someone all day without a word.  Now there's not even a "good morning.".

Yes, Butterfly is an incredible album!!!  If you like alio die and his hic sunt leones label you will probably really like this.

Hi, haven't seen any news about what's coming next this year and what month it's out?  Please let us know Mike!  Greatly anticipating Martian Chronicles 2 and Max Corbacho as well.

A coworker advised to only make an effort if this is genuinely somebody I care about.  I can't say that about this person because all there is is small talk and tv and movies discussions.  I feel like if my conscience is clear that I didn't do or say anything to warrant this situation, then the other person is choosing to behave this way based on their own issues.  Maybe I just need to suck it up and take it like a man.

I did consider confronting him but decided this is his problem, also why validate the vibe he's throwing out?  (By acting like it's bothering me).

I ordered that nachtplank CD, but after almost 2 months I find out it's a pre order.  When I requested a refund as it Still wasn't even completed, I got no response and had to file a PayPal claim.  Terrible label that txt.  Plus, $30 for one CD is a bit excessive.

Interesting to note, Steve Roach is not selling this CD at his website.  This usually means he does not endorse it based on his personal taste.  Which is surprising as he usually stocks the projekt ambient stuff.  From the samples I heard this one seems a bit awkward with the female vocals.  But I should give it a few more listens on bandcamp I guess to be sure.  Nice review as usual, Richard.

This has happened again.  This time it's really awkward as this person shares a long workstation with me and sits several feet next to me all day.  We got along great, always laughed, joked and chitchat etc.  The guy started giving me a "fake polite smile" when I made a comment, as if to say I'm not interested or you are annoying me.   He stopped making comments or engaging me in any way.  Except for good morning and goodnight.  Not wanting to bother him, I ceased engaging him and now sit in silence for 8 hrs.  Thank God for headphones!  I am getting used to it now close to one month later, but it's still quite depressing to me since there is no explanation for this.  Even a nearby coworker noticed we don't talk anymore.  To me this is more unnerving because I have to sit next to this person 40 hours a week.

You know, I really think this thread should be closed because every time I check it there are personal attacks.  Take it off forum, I say...
