    I was just curious about this widget, now I can't get rid of it!!
    And it is downloaded right into the Dashboard!!
    I can't figure out how to delete it.
    When I go into applications, it is not listed. Nor is it listed in Libray->Widgets

    HELP!!

    In Dashboard there's a Widgets widget. Next to the non-standard Apple widgets, there should be a red circle with a white bar through it. Press this and follow the prompts. :)

    Thanks.
    I sent the Dashboard to the Trash though!! Do'h.
    And I emptied the Trash.
    Now I have no Dashboard.
    But when I do a Spotlight search, Datingwidget still comes up.

    What do I do now?

    Thanks.

    I don't understand. You trashed Dashboard?

    Well, delete the widget from Spotlight then. Press Show All and then drag the widget (and its preference file if you like, it'll have .PLIST in it) to the trash. :)

    Ok. I finally did. Not sure how, but I found the Widgets widget. I sent it to the trash.
    But how do I get Dashboard back? Not that I used it that much, but I moved the Dashboard Icon to the Trash, emptied Trash, and it's gone.
    Is there a way to get it back?

    Thanks for all your help, in this otherwise trivial problem, but I appreciate it.

    Hmm... I guess you could try using Pacifist to get it back from the OSX install disks. :)
