    So. Supposin' you had recently broken up with a SO and some guy who you know reasonably well - say a friend of a family member - asked you out BUT..... You were kind of in a place where you're thinking 'I am SOOOOO not ready to be seeing anyone right now'.... BUT.... you also really do genuinely like the guy..... BUT.... he's offering to drive 2 hours to take you out for dinner and then turn around and drive back (clearly NOT expecting sex in return for dinner)..... Do you:


    a. Say 'yep'.

    b. Say 'no thanks'

    c. Say 'yea, but... here's the thing... and explain where you're at'

    I say GO FOR IT!

    Don't look at the dinner in a romantic/sexual/relationship sort of way. Just keep an open mind and go for it! No need to talk anything about your recent past unless of course HE brings it up. Just enjoy his company, live in the moment ( not the past or the future ) and make the most out of the time you do spend with him!

    C. But if you are really interested in him in the future make sure he knows it. Don't leave him guessing, it's not always a good thing.

    I vote for a.
    What the hell--you can always make mid flight adjustments.
    Since when did a woman owe a man anything for dinner. I bet the guy has taken a woman out before and was not given consent. If not it's about time it happened to him.
    Carpe Diem.
