Hey, Jack, as you grow and obtain greater wisdom, I think you'll come to find that "plain" is beautiful. Take it from a guy who's dated a lot of women, the obviously pretty ones lose their visual appeal and interest very fast. I used to only date "apparently" pretty girls, then I fell in love with my best friend who I never thought was very attractive, and suddenly I regarded her as the most beautiful woman on Earth. There's something to be said about "subtle" beauty; that which reveals itself slowly over time and allows it to be explored rather than simply seen.

In any case, we never (and can't) see ourselves as others do...never. You might think you're plain and perhaps unhandsome, but others may find you completely adorable and charming. Your shyness and/or lack of confidence and self-esteem will kill their perception of you though, since it's a fact that woman love confidence in a man more than anything else. Someone to take charge in the bedroom, someone to stand tall beside her in a crowded place to protect her, someone who's confident enough to be vulnerable and sensitive yet strong and manly when it's required.

Go out there and ask someone out. You have nothing to lose. The worst she can say is no. If she's a stranger, you'll never have to see her again anyway, so who cares?

I agree with Oldsmith. The power to make changes in Jack's life, (his job and where he lives) is really in Jack's hands.

I've found and am living with the woman of my dreams and fantasies. I don't own a car. Until 2 weeks ago I lived with my parents. I'm 36 years old. However, I am unfeasibly good-looking. smile

I dread to think what's under the silver foil!

OK, the dreaded day is over. This is Day #1 to finding yourself in a better situation next year (if it really means that much to you).

Some of the best relationships happen when you aren't looking.

Good Luck!

...but did you even try? Did you take my suggestion and get out and talk to some women? These things don't happen on their own, you know. Only you can make it happen.

It's coming again. It's like there's one of these fucking days every year, or something. wink











God, I'm depressed.

Look on the positive side: at least there isn't that whole "reproduction" issue you have to get entangled with. smile

One of my old V-Day poetry sarcasms:

There is love in the air,
but I don't care --
so there!

ONE good thing about being a sexless drone.

I don't hate it, especially since I've got a paid gig playing for a Valentines evening on the 14th Feb!

But one doesn't have to restrict themselves to one day a year to show their significant other how much they love them.

Mr Jack, get on the internet dating sites. Make sure you know what you're looking for so you'll know what you're gonna get! There are some very respectable ones like LoopyLove, and some not so respectable ones.

Double post. Kind of.

A more appropriate question would be

Ah yes! Internet dating sites! This is actually a good idea, as my sister has used it (and she's in a good relationship with a fellow she met from the site) as well as some of my girlfriend's numerous friends. In fact, my girlfriend was using one before she met me, but she said most of the men there were fairly creepy; just don't be one of those guys.

Yeah... seriously, find the right site and you're sorted. I met 5-6 very nice women by doing this, and I'm still with the last one, nearly 2 years on.

I believe e-Harmony is #1 due to its heavy emphasis on scientific research.

As a side note, my employer was trying to set me up with a woman. She kept saying, "If you ask I'll tell you who it is." Never bothered. I'm not sure she got the message yet.

I met my wife thanks to Match.com. We were both working on Lizzie Maguire at the same time, yet would never have known the other was available if it weren't for the net. Now we've got an adorable girl who enjoys repeatedly listening to Bolt. So I believe the net does work. You just have to approach it like a job, and hit the sites every day and continue to send out invites for coffee (or dinner, if you really get the vibe). That's my advice. Believe me, I HATED Valentine's Day probably more than anyone on this board before computers saved my social life.
