No luck on online dating
But you can also try approaching the experience with patience, self-acceptance, and above all, a lightness of being about the whole experience.
You never know when you might connect with a person that will take you on that perfect first date.
I was tired of the tedium of searching for someone, so I shut down all of my accounts and told myself that I would never return to the agonizing world of online dating again.
We dated for about a year before we realized that we were more compatible as friends than as romantic partners.
One day, the idea of putting up a profile online randomly popped into my head. But then I gave it a bit more thought, and realized that I was in a very different place in my life than when I had last been active in the online dating world.
And I felt like I could take the experience a little more lightly this go round.
I am not ugly and I've had many girls tell me I'm good looking, attractive, cute and had a couple say they would sleep with me.
It seems that unless I have some super great photos up of me posting with my shirt off or something, I get no replies. I am frustrated with my dating life and my sex (or lack therefore) life. I have never really had a proper girlfriend, well, not one that I've been with long enough to actually call it serious.
