      This is true, however the definition of insanity is attempting the same things over and over again while expecting different results. Point is there is only so much breaking out that one can do before it reaches the point of being a wasted effort.

      Yeah... me too. And it's bulls**t. Chances are, even if they were single, they wouldn't have dated me.

      Stop looking.
      Start doing the things you like.

      That leaves you with 2 outcomes.
      Worst Case: You do things you like.
      Best Case: You do things you like, and meet someone who likes doing those same things.
      Bro, do you even lift? When you only have 90 horsepower, you don't ever lift.

      Well i know there is a Who is Who thread but let all the single people post pictures of themselves and let the OT judge.

      Rule - No mirror pictures

      All of the photos of me on the internet have me "lost in the background" more or less. I'm sure I have a couple of just me at home I'll post up later.

      It is difficult to learn from your mistakes when you don't think you've made any and you don't know the signs for certain social cues. Yes I'm socially inept...

      Yeah, so basicly I know exactly the boat you are coming from.

      I basically got to the point where I said F*ck it, and just started focusing on all the other crap going on in my life, school, work, work, if I had free time I was at the shooting ranges with my buddies and so forth. I am not much of a nightlife person, I dont mind grabbing drinks at bars with my buddies but im not going clubbing and im not looking to "meet" someone at a bar.

      That all being said tho me and this girl I use to work with basically fell for each other hard... not sure how it happened either, I wasnt looking to date her tho shes cute as hell and she wasnt looking for a boyfriend at the time either... but yeah... **** happens when your not looking for it


      I say do what the guys said already.

      Go out, have fun and do things you like... You will be having fun and being worry free and thats what most girls like

      While I do agree that you have to be yourself, and that doing things you love is the right way to go, you still have to put yourself out there. I don't want to hate on you, but you've only met one girl in that entire time and that it didn't work out. I'm guessing not many girls go to the shooting range. You really do have to be social, go out to bars, clubs or parties to meet people.

      And I'm there with you. I like cars, accounting and the gym. Not much going on there in terms of females. I've had to put myself out of my comfort zone to meet new people.

      True.


      I've met a lot on the internet to be honest.

      I don't need a woman to make me happy, but I'll always want someone to enjoy my own personal happiness with.

      Very rarely do good people end up alone.
      Good stuff

      To reply to the "how to meet girls" conversation, it helps to "do what you enjoy" but it nearly always needs to be a social, unisex activity.

      You won't meet girls playing WOW in the dark.
      You likely won't meet girls doing manly activities like hunting or the like.
      Whoever mentioned kickball... that's a fantastic extra-curricular!

      haha It did work out. I am still with her... And I met other girls before that, but I was just at the point where I was wanting more than just a fling... I am ridiculously picky and basically figured what I wanted in a woman was unobtainable and I would stop worrying if there was the "right" woman out there for me and just started focusing on what was in front of me...
      Shortly after that me and this girl started grabbing lunch together and then out of no where it turned into something great.

      Also I do other things besides going shooting too but my point is just to do what makes you happy... If thats shooting at the range with friends sure... women prospects there arnt the greatest haha or join a club, build a home for the needy lol Just pursue what will bring a smile to your face and it will happen.

      I'm still not sold on that. I do believe that you should do what brings a smile to your face, I just don't think it'll lead to meeting girls for most people. Like a few posts above, playing WoW likely won't get you laid. I bet there are a few people who have met playing, but that's the exception, not the rule.

      If what you love doing is a social activity, where men and women participate, than yes. If it's an activity you do alone, or only with other men, than it won't. Unless you're looking for a guy. Than sure.

      but to you. I wish there were cute single girls at my work

      Oh of course, it's almost as if they're using their current relationship as a leash from doing something they might regret.

      Although in my case it's happened with such frequency that I'm beginning to think that they're using it as a cop-out excuse. I'm onto your scheming ways ladies

      he WAS looking though. The chillin out and do nothing approach worked in highschool and part of college, but then i got ugly or something, so now i actually have to work for it. Also i think as girls get older, they expect to be pursued more so than when they are younger and they just wanna be all slutty.
