I recently got out of a serious relationship that lasted 7 years. Since I was in high school when the relationship started, I've never really been out on what I would classify as a real date - just kind of hung out and fell in love that way. There are a couple of guys that I would like to try going out on a date with that are acquaintances. I don't know how to convey that I would like to try going out with them. Any advice please?

If they are acquaintances and know you are now single, well a little flirting goes a long way in showing them you have an interest in them.
I don't agree with the advice about asking them out. I am not a fan of that in any case as I have seen time and time again that if a guy does not ask you out, there is usually a good reason for it. However, when you ask a guy out who is an acquaintance you risk making things pretty uncomfortable between the two of you. A lot of people are definitely not comfortable telling a friend that they don't want to date them or don't see them that way. It can create a permanent change in your relationship, so just make sure it is worth that risk.1
