No. It's a thing that people lie about on the internet.

I'm skinny. I'm 5'8", weigh anywhere from 140 - 145 pounds, and dress accordingly, but I don't have women trying to fuck me everywhere I go.

Granted, I have a wife, but still.

It would take being attractive, with a large dong. If you have that, you can be the biggest piece of shit in the world and score women (or that special woman who doesn't mind that she's with an asshole, because that asshole is nice to have sex with).

That's the thing. What's your attitude like? Are you a bore, do you have a low self opinion of yourself? If so, with or without money, women will avoid you like the plague, because you're a major buzzkill. Shit, regular folk will avoid you, too. Turn that frown upside down and go get laid!

Yeah, the good old days when someone would show up to your door with a crayon drawn map that said, "secks heer" on the top.

Yep.

Nothing like that happens in real life. When is the last time you went up to a girl and started talking to her? They aren't going to approach you.

Are you sure about that? I just read the blood alcohol thread and you mentioned that you're a loner.

Let's see: no friends, overweight, lacking in confidence (if you really have confidence you wouldn't have said "I don't think")= there's your answer. Go out and be social, work out and at least be of average weight, no one says you have to be ripped or skinny.

My other suggestion is to just use this excess money you have on hookers for the rest of your life

I was only commenting on Penguin Joe, who said that women do approach him.

I did fill out that profile on EHarmony several years ago, but never subscribed.
Enjoy!

Re: Online dating experiences?

I have never had a woman could up to talk to me, and certainly never had one give me her phone number.

More than anything I want to hire a stripper and send her to your house.

Re: Online dating experiences?

I did hook up with a Mexican girl on one of those sites, and she banged my brains out for a few months. God, it was great.

Did you say "Take me home tonight, I don't want to let you go 'til you see the light ... Be my little baby"?

No. I dropped my balls in her mouth and told her I had two tickets to paradise. Then I proceeded to pound.

Sounds like you got the romantic angle covered.

Was she Shakin'? Snappin' her fingers? Was she up and down and round and round?

Okay, possibly get laid. 50/50 shot. Not with me, but with a woman. Play your cards right, maybe we'll run into mhg83 and-or a tranny.)

As someone genuinely trying to <s>find a connection</s> get laid? My very own "Summer of Constanza" (Summer 2009).

Last time I actually had a girl approach me? 2008.

Re: Online dating experiences?

Just remember: Attraction is not a choice.

If you're a fat fuck then start working out. If you're shy or introverted go outside or take some Toastmaster speaking lessons, etc. You'll go from being a zero to a work-in-progress. Women love men who are works-in-progress, because they're trying to better themselves and it promotes higher value than just doing nothing. Forward motion.

Follow that bit of advice and you'll be getting more ass than a toilet seat. Unless you're Matthew Chmiel, because he's a mac daddy and all the womens gravitate toward him.

No, but action certainly is, and everyone's responsible for their own choices.

And I've already listed action steps to take if you fall into the categories I listed above.

Not even at a party, a cookout or a wedding? Even when they don't give you their number in a romantic way maybe they gave you a business card and you checked in and asked them for a drink? I have a girlfriend but I find it hard that no one here has really ever been approached by a woman. And when I say approaches I mean friendly conversation starting its your job to ask for the number or card. Back in college we would just exchange emails and usually it was Gmail so it's not hard to use that GChat function and say "hey how's it going my roommate and I are having a party friday you should come". I'm not saying women hit on me left and right but it's not uncommon for them to start a conversation somewhere like the Apple Store or Coffee Bean or wherever.

A few weekends ago in Long Beach I was hit on by two women--both hot--at two different bars. The second time it happened, while I was closing out our tab at the bar, my date ditched me in a fit of jealousy. I would have been annoyed by that otherwise, but the night ended with a much more attractive woman than I started it with.

Some of us do get hit on, PenguinJoe.

Orange County, Long Beach, LA, I'm telling you women are a different breed out here. When I lived in Chicago the girls were way different, not as outgoing.
