Why do NONE of you just put on your best red dress and go on the town?



Honestly! big grin

In 1991, I joined the Great Expectations singles service ("video dating") in Sausalito, CA. I literally read through the profiles of every single woman in their "catalogs" (over 450 women), looked at their photos, and watched several videos. I then wrote a letter to ONE particular woman, and GE forwarded that letter to her.

A week later, we had our first date at a fantastic seafood restaurant in San Francisco.

Three hours into the date (after we'd walked to a bookstore and had dessert at Just Desserts), I knew she was going to be my girlfriend.

Two weeks after we met, we put our respective GE memberships on "hold," basically pulling ourselves out of circulation for anyone else.

One year later, I proposed (on my knee) on a beach in Pt. Reyes.

Three months after that, we were married.

And this coming October marks our 17th wedding anniversary.

Worked for me!

-- Jon

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

God, I'm depressed.


Brother boy, it's an arbitrary Hallmark holiday. Love will find you, you will find love, and it won't have anything to do with a date on the calendar. Just ease up on the reins for now, and do something you love on the 14th.

And hey -- for what it's worth, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Trust me -- you are definitely someone's ideal.

Peace
cool

There's one woman at work who I really like, but am hesitant to ask her out because my first date a few years back with another woman didn't go so smoothly. I was very nervous, and didn't know what to talk about, I hate that awkward silence. I guess I should just try it again, I've got nothing to lose.

Damn women...go bother someone else. I'm not available. Besides, there's much better looking men, like Rico Suave. Wait...he's taken too.

Hmm...but maybe I need a woman when I get older. A good nurse could comfort me real nicely when I have ailments.

Of course that means she gets 50 percent of everything. frown

May as well continue enjoying the services of Rosy Palm, then. She's free and doesn't have a lawyer.

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.

I'm actually subscribed to one, but every time I get the "Mr. Jack! 30 hotties near Walpole want to meet you!" notice in the mail, I always scan through the potential dates and chicken out. I mean, if I can't even talk to a woman via e-mail or instant message, what chance to I have in real life? frown

Give yerself a break. This is psychology we're talking about here (in a good way)! There's women who are attracted to men who lack confidence. They probably find it adorable. smile

So posting about it at FSM hadn't done the trick, huh? What else have you tried?

Good point - I don't think we've ever failed at anything before...

If you want something you will get it, It may kill you, but before it does you will get it.the dating services of the past i hear you get to choose to go out with dozens and dozens of woman in a year. What are the odds you won't find at least one, you can relate too. I don't think you really want it.

FOUR FUCKING YEARS LATER....


And now I'm going to give you a slap around the head.

Forget about a relationship. I'm going to say that again, because it's terribly important: FORGET ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP. In other words, ignore everyone's helpful and well-meaning advice above. (sorry, but it's clearly not working)

Fill up your time with other things, and stop moping. Go and find some volunteering work in your area, a hospital or something like that. Get involved in helping your local community and do some good, while at the same time (and this is the clever bit) you're maximising the chances of a relationship popping up out of the blue. But if the main aim isn't to find one, the pressure will be off in the meantime.

As long as you're feeling sorry for yourself and not doing anything about it, I doubt that anything'll happen, and those around you may start to find it a bit boring, thus perpetuating the issue.

I may not everyone's cup of tea around here, but I think that this is good advice and it comes from a little hidden part of me that still retains some compassion for my fellow man. God knows I've tried to suppress it.
