Hi Jim, thank you for your response. As a woman of your generation, getting back into the dating scene is scary. We have been through so much; marriage, raising kids, divorce and heartbreak. And then couple that with how much the dating world has changed since we last dated (which could be 10+ years sometimes) It’s frightening! We may not trust our decisions, so we don’t make any. It’s more safe for us to friend zone a man, especially if they’re really nice, then it is to take a leap and open our heart to a potentially great relationship. But as a man, you don’t need more women friends! I’m sure you don't, you want a partner. If I may be blunt…Don’t let a woman friend zone you, seriously. It’s not fair to either one of you. If you read the nonverbals that a woman gives, she will let you know if she’s into you or not. If not, then move on. You’ll find someone who is. I hope you keep at it!
