This isn't really a worst date. This is the story of the Date That Will Never Happen.
A friend of mine that I used to work with joined the company where I work now, and it's been over a year that he's been here. Our work lives do not intersect in any way (very big company). Anyway, on his floor is a very nice guy that I've seen around, and my friend has decided that this guy and I would make the perfect couple. He introduced us, and the other guy was pleasant, and that was it. Nothing. You would think that if a guy was interested in a girl, he'd at least contact her, right? My friend says that he's shy and I should contact him. Okay, I'm not adverse to that, so I write him an email about something we have a mutual interest in. He says thanks and that's it. Nothing else. Not a word.
This stalemate has been going on for nearly a year. My friend is pushing me to 'think outside the box and ask him on a date'. Uh.....no. For the record, I am in my mid-50s, not some dewy 20-year old, and the other guy is hardly young either(although younger than I am). If he's interested in me, he can blamed well *ask me out*. As it is, he won't even talk to me. No IM, no email, nothing. He's obviously not all that interested, but my friend insists that he is.
And that's where it stands. I'm not pushing, and he's not pushing. I'm simply not interested in a guy who doesn't have the balls to even IM me with a 'good morning'.
But my friend is still nagging.
