    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...

    Am I the only one that get in a relationship

    this is so weird. That they break up with you. And then they want you back. Then you say yes and it keeps happening over and over. Should I just stop. Or try and keep the relationship going and try that out

    I am 23 years old and have essentially had no

    dating experience whatsoever. I have recently trying to venture into online dating with no avail. I just don't seem to know how to attract any guys! I don't wanna come across as desperate, but I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't know how to get a guy

    I forgive over and over,

    expecting different results and then remain disappointed. I'm clearly doing this to myself.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people who is unhappy when I'm not in a relationship; I prefer being single to dating for the sake of being in a relationship. But every now and then I do meet someone that I feel a an attraction for, or a connection with. It doesn't...

    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...

    It seems like I suck at dating.

    My friend keeps telling me that I should stop dating but how do you do that when there's a new guy you have interest in who has interest in you. It hurts me when she implies things about me, because I tend to date around a lot.. I don't understand. I'm human too..
