    This girl told me I was clingy.

    I am not sure how to talk it. She was not the best at giving me feedback.

    People tell me they don't know

    why I don't have tons of dates. I don't get asked out. I'm not arrogant. I like the way I look but I'm no supermodel. I'm shy. I'm sarcastic. I'm reserved. I've been told the way I carry myself makes me unapproachable and intimidating. They say I have a confidence about me. I...

    I'm awkward at pretty much everything.

    I'm initially too shy, and then I'm too talkative. And it's a thing.

    We went out for lunch.

    After my relationship ended I haven't been able

    to find a date. I've never asked a girl out. I'm really depressed after my relationship ended, and I need to start dating again. I feel stupid walking up to people and talking out of nowhere. Online dating sucks. I'm thinking about just moving away to get a fresh start.

    I think it's funny when your talking to a girl

    and it seems like things are moving forward or at least you think she likes you, then all of a sudden silence. It's happens to me often. Women find another guy to give them what they need and then sort of push you aside. It doesn't upset me, but I think it's funny how the...

    So I have been in the dating game.

    It's so strange I have to admit, you come across all sort of characters, from angry straight forward business men to the gentle and afraid individuals. Sometimes breaking off that initial first meet or not to imply there would not be a second date is awkward. It can end up...

    I think I need to either stop dating entirely.

    Or stop dating smart,educated women. Cause deep intellectual conversations seem to end badly. My beliefs and opinions are strong and are not very often agreed with. Yep dumb girls for me,here on out!
