What's your thought on hinting at friends to introduce you to their single friends or to fix you up with somebody? I'm trying to get back out into the "being single" mode, but I'm having trouble meeting anybody new. I work with people twice my age and I hate picking up people at bars. I have a couple hook-up prospects, but they're out-of-town girls that might be in for a night or two. I'm looking to actually meet someone new and try dating/new relationship. So I thought about asking my friend's fiance if she has any single friends at work she could hook me up with, but without sounding desperate... She knows I'm a decent guy and am not just looking for a one night stand. Is this a pitiful thing to do? If so, what would be a better way? I really like meeting people through other friends because I'm kind of shy sometimes and the "group" atmosphere sometimes makes it easier to talk and joke around without too much pressure. Plus, I'm more likely to see a friend of a friend more often and kindle familiarity easier. I guess I'm still kind of rattled from the break-up with my ex that I don't know where to start. I'm confident I'll be fine once I get my "groove"
