So, there are two women in my social circle who seem to really like me and whom I can date. I like them both, but not crazed about either.
The last time I was really excited about meeting a woman was my ex girlfriend. I was so happy to have met and dated her two years ago. However, the relationship sadly ended after a year.
Since that time, I have met plenty of women. I have dated a few. But, none of them gave me the sense of excitment and anticipation I felt when I met my ex.
My friends joke that they wish they had my problems: women who are interested in me and who even ask me out. They also warn me that I am getting older and can end up lonely if I don't give these women a fair shot and otherwise stop being so picky.
Would it be wrong to date these women, even casually, knowing that I am not all that jazzed about them and looking for something else? Or is it best to not date at all and hold out for someone who really turns me on?
I am concerned that I date them and then will find someone else I like and end up hurting them. Of course, this the chance one takes when dating and it has certainly happened to me.

I wouldn't force yourself to date because of the age factor. That's dating out of fear, and that helps nobody. But as far as dating casually just to date, sure I don't see anything wrong with that. Spending time with people is fun. Meeting new people is fun. It's especially fun with a member of the opposite sex when it could possibly grow into something more. You may not be jazzed about them now, but you could be later. Love is funny like that.
I am against leading people on, so I would advise you to be honest about your feelings and not to let it go on for too long if you sense it's going nowhere. Other than that, I say go out and have a good time. That's why it's called dating and not "definitely going to marry this person."0
