    Even if I did change my attitude, though, what would that change about my dating life? Probably nothing. I'd still be stuck in this boring place with no viable options, except I'd be forcing myself to be positive for no reason.

    The solution really is to hit the restart button. To find a new job in a better environment working with people around my age and not where I'm at now where all of my coworkers are 65-year-old men. I need to get back to an area that has things for me to do that I enjoy, but fuck, you tell me how that easy it is to do in this economy when in order to get a job, you need to have a job (ruling out quitting the one I have and moving somewhere I actually want to live) and in my discussions with others seeking jobs outside where they live, employers in bigger cities aren't bothering to look at anyone who has to relocate since there's already a ton of unemployed people right under their noses.

    Like I said: Stuck.

    These things are not true or not important. The way out is by finding how these are wrong. Finding the exceptions. You can go on making excuses, but that isn't going to make anything better. You are not being "realistic", you are being negative. You may actually be clinically depressed and may benefit from professional help. At any rate making things seem as bad as possible isn't the way forward.

    i broke things off with someone i was kinda seeing. i kept feeling really anxious about seeing him and wasn't really thrilled about the idea of sleeping with him. and he was kinda pushy about it which is a total turn-off. nice guy, but he almost became a priest at one point in his life and i just felt like i couldn't be my true self. plus, i am pretty happy on my own it's kinda nice to feel that way.

    so no active dating for awhile. plus i'm only four courses/20 weeks from my degree and this next class, stats, will be the toughest of my program probably. don't fuck with my routine!

My goal is to find a new job and hopefully move altogether, but these days, nothing is guaranteed.) Fast forward four years and my social life is dead as evidenced by posting this on a Saturday night. I live in a typical suburban sprawl with no major cities with a life to it within two hours of driving, everyone around me that's in my age range is either married with kids or a complete disaster and it really sucks being forced into not having a social life.

    I've tested the waters of dating sites, but think OK Cupid is probably the one with the most depth to it and accuracy. Even with filling out my profile as much as I can, though, I'm afraid that because of the type of area I live in, the matches are pretty boring or look like the trashiest cast members of Teen Mom all grown up. Throw into the mix that it's really important to me that I find someone who has relatively similar interests in what the world outside would categorize as non-traditional music tastes, and it's pretty discouraging.

    I have no idea what to do anymore. It's like I'm stuck in purgatory and have no idea when I'm going to be able to do more with my life other than sleep, work and enjoy my self-entertaining hobbies, but otherwise might as well not exist. I'm starting to feel like those people who you meet who are in their mid-40s and are hopelessly single is going to be me in 15 years.

    Thank you to Randy and co for being dicks to me in this thread 2 (?) years ago when I was spouting a bunch of dumb crap. Eventually realized it wasn't stuff I really believed anyway.

    Alright Icey, now that we've established that I know what's best for you, here's what you need to do:

    Fuck the absolute first thing you can. At this age, you just need to get over the hump. You'll develop comfort with the whole "picking girls up" process if you just get past the physical dilemma. Get a hooker, or at least go to a massage parlour and get jerked off. Seriously.

    Spend enough time on dating sites and you'll hate the opposite sex in no time! At the end of the day, it feels like you're the only normal guy/girl on there, and that the rest of the singles are single for one or more very very good reasons.

    Having said that, I do have a nice date every now and then, it just isn't more than nice usually. But no creepy dates or stalker chicks, and I now know that does count for something! (see above)

    A LOT of the women/girls I see on dating sites are either:
    - travelling around the world and looking for a travel companion (I like to see new places too, but I wouldn't say that traveling defines me and I don't have the need to be in another country 9 out of 12 months of the year)
    - so proud of being such a good person, that they demonstrate this by posting pics of them with a horde of African orphans in some far away village
    - doing their best to show you they already have a perfect life, by posting pics of them practicing at least 3 different sports, pics of them with huge numbers of friends, pics of them being succesful in their career and the aforementioned travel pics + African orphans pics

    Ah well, I guess that for now I'll just keep on clicking..

    (whether or not there's actual milk production) breastfeeding African orphans, but still looking up at the camera

    Having your shit together is a good thing.

    Having a perfect life... is impossible.

    If you're into sports and so you have a lot of sport pics, cool. If your career is important to you and that's what you show on your dating profile, fine. Not being superficial, caring about family, friends, other people, all very good traits. But stuff it all into one set of pictures and it just gives me the creeps.

    Are you assuming every girl on a dating site has something to hide and is compensating by showing off? You realize the whole point of these profiles is to show off, right? Also, if you think all the girls are being superficial, what does that say about you?

    All girls are superficial. That's why my profile pic on OKC was near nude.

    I'm not saying they're superficial. I'm saying that not being superficial is a good trait. But there is such a thing as overdoing it on a dating profile. Or, to quote a cool movie trailer:

    Being back in the dating world is not fun. Signed up to a couple online dating sites and I just don't have the energy for it. I guess it's time to expand my social circle.
