We both live in Ohio, although we are both in different cities at the moment.
I don't like the dating scene as such either. I guess I was more talking about the experience of being single and flirting with people and getting the guts to get more involved. That is what I meant by being out of the dating scene. I have plenty of friends I have thought about getting involved with, but didn't go through with it for one reason or another. I agree that getting to know people and finding that spark is the best way to go. Meeting people isn't the problem. It is what to do once I meet them that I am having trouble with.
Thanks for the reply!
