A glimmer of hope

I'm probably going to jinx myself by talking about it, but I wanted to share that a man I have been casually acquainted with for years had lunch with me today. It would not be a big deal except he made a point of mentioning that a mutual friend had told him that I had divorced, and then he disclosed that he had separated from his significant other within the past year also.
Back before my marriage fell apart, this guy liked to flirt with me a little when we ran into each other. (Our work is in the same area and we have a lot of mutual friends.) However, I'd hardly seen him in the past year. So it was a pleasant surprise to "run" into him as I was going in to work today. It was all pretty casual, but he said he had come that way in the hopes of running into me and said we needed to "catch up" and suggested lunch. It wasn't a date--we went to a place full of people I work with and some people he works with. It's a regular hang out for people we both know and we have eaten there before as part of a group in the past. And of course we each paid for our own food.
But it seemed clear that he had just heard about my divorce and since he had separated also had some thought of contacting me to see if something "sparked."
I'm not sure that it did--he still just feels like a pleasant friend more than possible love interest--but it is so good to know that someone in real life can be interested!!
Anyway, since you guys hear me whine about not having any dates, I thought I'd post some happy news for a change.
