    so update with tennis client girl. I reached back out to her about getting together, expecting the worst..I got.."hey sorry wasnt into our initial conversation..da di da..but good luck. I responded back along the lines of sorry I would have loved to take you out but respect your decision. I planned on never hearing from her again. Well she shocked my by responding a few hours later thank you..why dont we try being friends..maybe play tennis sometime. I loved how easygoing it was and like the idea of an easygoing date. I've been on a much of online dates now where we meet for a drink and its been hell. I hate to say it but all the online dating coaches are just terrible. Its all about flow..not this waiting to respond back stuff and so many other "strategies." Geez every situation is different..if anything, I've learned two things:

    1) The take it or leave it attitude is gold. You cant need them..no attachment.
    2) you cant control them..they either like you or they dont, to an extent. just be you.

    It's not a date. She has clearly friendzoned you (at best). So you if you are after anything more you are completely wasting your time.

    and Im fine with it. Because we havent even met. And the pressure is off. Im throwing all strategies and analysis out the door, because they have resulted in me being exactly where I am now-alone. Chances are this wont work and I'm "friendzoned", but Im just not too worried anymore.

    Good stuff man. Glad to hear you're putting yourself out there anyway, no harm having a new female friend as long as your expectations aren't too high. Who knows, she may even have a friend for you!

    no clue what will happen. The only reason I think it may work is because we havent met yet. So who knows.

    well, an update. I did the online dating thing. It had been so long and I finally dived in. All the apps and a site. I did a ton of it. Total disaster. Games. A pron and fantasy addicts "crack." Not a good idea. Did not work well. Was disastrous for me. And it is for most. For some reason I thought there might be a shot and was really not giving myself the best shot to meet girls. Im not missing anything.

    Went to church with a girl Im friends with. We were thinking of going to Asia together. Unfortunately, she is annoying and I could never go on a trip with her. And 99% of girls I dont want to hang out with. I just do find them annoying and needy.

    So all the advice of having a girl to hangout with, having one to help me with my problem, getting in the game, online dating..well, its all been terrible advice. The fact is Im alone. Im sad sitting in my apt every night alone, even if I do socialize alot..for example..I'll meet my running club at 6:30 we go for a run..laugh and socialiaze, we get dinner..but there is still that sitting and watching tv from 8:30-11 that I find so lonely..and thats a good 6 days a week. So I just dont know.

    Don't give up so easily. I know plenty of guys who went on 50+ dates. Sometimes it's just fate/luck. Other times you really have to try if you don't want to be lonely. There are billions of people in this world, so there's definitely someone for you...believe me. Everyone can find someone they like and are attracted to. But if you know in advance there's no hope, you will never find someone. It's persistence, creativity and trying new things and keeping in mind that life is not fair and you have to work hard sometimes to get to where you want to be...

    You can't blame the advice. It has worked for other guys. It seems your mindset sabotages your efforts. In most of your posts I read a self-defeating attitude, thinking the girl will reject you, even before an interaction started. Those thoughts are toxic and will ruin every interaction with a woman. Then afterwards you're very judgmental about yourself. This cycle keeps repeating.

    Can you blame a woman for not wanting to be around a guy that constantly reminds himself he's a failure? It seems you tried the online dating thing more to prove to us how terrible it is, than actually making an effort to have it work and hook up with a girl. Whatever you chose to use as your approach, a positive outlook is essential.

    I also see you change your attitude about women almost daily. One day all women under 30 years are a strict no-go, the next it's about some young barista in her early 20s. There is no wrong here, but you seem in this constant state of flux between judging yourself, or giving in to your primal urges. Why is that, and do you think it's possible to fully accept yourself, which includes those primal urges as well?

    Your self pity has just gone next level bro. I can totally understand if other people's advice does not work for you. But then it's up to you to do things your way, and if it all goes to shit, you need to accept it, learn from it and try something else.

    yup you're totally right..and this is an online profile, so its not like people know me that well. But I will say online dating is like "crack" and extremely messed up and messes with the mind and I know a lot of people who agree.

    online dating is like crack, at least where I live. totally nuts. I have a lot of friends who agree. And Im negative here, agreed. very frustrated scared and sad. but dont present in person. the young barista was about one thing-sex.

    its fine dude, there are days I effing wish I was. seems easier. I think you gotta go through some pain to get to the other end. I really wanna laugh at this crap in ten years with a wife and a few kids.
