I Know a Guy, Never Dated Him, But Wish to Marry Him Someday (dreamily)

I know this guy.  He is a little older than me and I've known him half my life now.  I've never really dated him, but I do see him (in a class he teaches) once a week.  I used to work for him too for a few years.  He is a nice guy, still single, and never married.  He is cute and everybody wants to be around him.  I sometimes have dreams about him and small fantasies that I keep to myself (until exploiting now on EP).  But I cannot visualize him and I getting married.  I know it will never work.  I don't have the guts to ask him out on a date.  I tried to be flirty with him once but that never worked.  As for now I do see him on a weekly basis (from what I stated above).  I kind of got excited last night because I emailed him and was anxious for his reply.  It does give me butterflies in my stomach just thinking about him.  I know there are other guys that are out there and that can be better.  I have made the effort in looking (with for example), but the end result is disappointing, no such luck.  I am happy being single for now, but just the thought of attempting to ask him out is driving me wild.  All I can do is hope for the best in someday getting married to the right one.

If you dated this guy for a while, and you broke up, could you avoid seeing him for a year or two? If the answer is yes, I suggest you make the first move, assuming that you are truly over 25 years of age.

hmmm, i'll tell you something.

12 or so years ago my now ex wife came to me and said "marry me or **** off". just like that.

draw your own conclusion from that........
