@icanhearyousmile:  If friend #1 hasn’t been on any dates or met anyone new in the last 2.5 years, he is not trying hard enough. I’m a firm believer in taking some time after a breakup to get used to being on your own again, but if he is choosing not to date in 2.5 years, he is responsible for not moving on in the romance department.,

They are lucky to have a good friend in you who is concerned about them. Perhaps by waiting until later in life to meet “the one”, they will make better decisions than some of us.

@icanhearyousmile:  I have to agree with Jules.  We have a few guy friends in similar situations.  One does go on dates but I don’t think he really puts himself out there while he’s out on those dates.  He really worries about what people think about him so I think he doesn’t let himself connect with girls he really likes because he is too busy trying to find someone his friends/family will like.  It doesn’t help that he spends hours and hours playing video games instead of going out to just hang out with people.  He’s such a nice guy I would love for him to find someone but until he’s fully ready to take the plunge it’s never going to happen for him.
