At least they want to be friends on FB

So, it's been close to two years that I've been doing OLD again. An attitude that has really helped me get through is to look at meeting men as meeting a new friend, not get all wound up in romantic thoughts right away. This strategy has worked, maybe a little too well.
I met a guy back in July (OLD) and we went out a couple of times, dates were spaced waaaay out. I liked him, but wasn't really feeling it physically for him, and I think he felt the same. About six weeks ago, he sent a friend request to me on Facebook, so I accepted, why not? And that's where it has stayed...he's sent me group email forwards and the like.
I met another guy a year ago. I didn't feel it was really a match, but would have definitely gone out with him to learn more, but he never asked. He emailed me a number of times further discussing something we had talked about when first meeting. I even ran into him three times at artsy things, I was very friendly. So, I see him again this past Friday night (a year after meeting) at an artsy thing, and he made a point of coming over to talk to me. Maybe I'm just lonely and tired of looking, but he was looking good to me (no I wasn't drunk), I'm thinking, "Oh, I'll bet he'll ask me out now." Nope. Saturday morning I get a friend request from him, LOL! (I accepted).
Oh, it's not really a bad thing. Maybe he's got single male friends, right? And I'd much rather be friends with a guy than have it crash and burn and be awkward. Of course, I'd much rather just freakin' meet someone to date.
I know FB can be a real minefield. Has anyone ever friended someone on FB and have it turn into anything more (dating)?
