This sucks. is it normal to not go a day without seeing a woman you’d like to go on a date with or is it just me? Do women do that, see tons of guys they find attractive or would like to date or is it just men.
I am sick of this shite. Nothing good can come from it, its like starving in a desert. Its not going to help anything or get you what you want.
I wish i knew how to give up on women. I just don’t have the options open to me. This isn’t a ‘feel sorry for me post’ (but feel free if you want), its more an exasperation post. Why can’t i just accept my limitations and accept that this aspect of my life doesn’t work. Has anyone else successfully done this?
As some of you know my dating history is a lil’ barren. I feel like i missed alot of the events that build up a foundation and ability to interact. Never had a first kiss, no ‘real’ dates, no juvenile flirting, no groping, etc. I am like someone who never went to grade school finding himself in college and being expected to function. Don’t get me wrong my social skills are fine (i think), but i have no experience. And i don’t know how to get any. I guess if i really, really, really wanted to i could break down and pay the $20 a month to join match.com, write a good form letter and send it to everything with opposable sex organs and a working circulatory system within a 50 mile radius. I assume about 5% that i write to will write back and 1% will meet me in person. Not great odds, but if you do that 1200 times then maybe someone can find a girlfriend. But I don’t do that for some reason.
But overall i’m just tired of thinking about this. From what i’ve seen of others in relationships or dating its not that great. Its an unreliable minefield filled with unrequited affection, break-ups, co-dependency, back stabbing, awkwardness, etc. I mean I know people who have no trouble meeting people or finding dates and who have a full past but they can’t find a good one. What chance do i have then? Thats like saying if scientists in the US with billion dollar grants and Ph.D.s can’t figure out how to cure Alzheimers, what chance does an understaffed backwoods lab in Togo have (i hope nobody is from Togo)?
I realize life doesn’t revolve around me. Nothing is perfect in this life, but more than anything i want to just quit. I’m tired of fighting for this crap. If something falls into my lap i’ll look into it but i want to just put this part of my life in the background. But i’m not sure how. In a way thats like putting eating in the background, its central to the survival of the species. How do you just forget something that important w/o drugs (ie estrogen drugs, which i probably wont take) or really intense meditation?
