Q. As long as i can remember, i have tried and tried to get dates with women, but i cant seem to attract them. especially one girl in particular who i am attracted to a great deal, but whenever i try to ask her on a date, she always says she’s busy or she tells me she’ll call but never does. should i just throw my troubles away and give up for good and just stay single [and miserable] for the rest of my life?
A. Don’t give up hope. Just because it’s hard to find someone to date, does not mean you are doomed to be single for life. I am not sure where you are looking for dates, but some people have had success with online dating services. Online dating services allow you to comb through tons of profiles and pictures and find someone that matches your likes and interests before you meet or contact them. It’s a much more efficient way to find dates and might be a much more desirable option than hanging out at the local bars to meet girls. Don’t give up; you are much too young to stop looking. Good luck.
