Lately, I've been really down on keeping to myself since I haven't been meeting people outside of all my work. I started going to the gym again just the other day, and I totally had forgotten how much fun I had there and how much fun it is to meeting new people. I already have three new workout buddies and their numbers.
I'm not allowed to date undergrads where I work because of university policies, and I'd rather not anyway. I'm surrounded by undergrads at my apartment complex and even the gym. I've FINALLY met some grad students. I can date them!
The only problem is that I don't know when to ask if they're seeing anyone. If I ask if they're seeing anyone the moment I meet them, they might think I'm "easy" or something and am just looking for a quickie or am desperate, and that's not the case. I don't know. Should I ask if I run into them again a few more times?
I've been looking for someone to date for years now, and the slowness is really driving me crazy. I'm not trying to rush into anything to scare them off, but at the same time, it's got to pick up the pace a bit. I just want to know if I'm wasting my time on someone or not, and if they're taken, I can just meet someone else there. If it was at a bar, I would definitely ask right off the bat, but since it's at the gym, I think it's a bit different considering I'm also looking for basketball and workout buddies, not just a hook up.
When do you think would be the right time to ask a new friend if he is single for the potential to be more than just friends?
