    This girl told me I was clingy.

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

    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 broke up with him today.

    It's easy to find someone who says they love you; it's hard to find someone who means it.

    I can never keep a guy interested in me

    and when a guy is I am not interested. Maybe I am just not meant for love... Maybe I am meant to be loner. Or maybe I am just not anyones type. Why can't someone just come into my life and love me and tell me I am perfect for them. Why is love so complicated!!!!! Either you are...

    I can never keep a stable boyfriend.

    I can make it too weeks if I'm lucky. Maybe I'm just meant for sex and not love

    I know the moment they know the real me

    and my thoughts of what a relationship should be....they always back away. My neediness and honesty wins and I lose. I just want someone to hold me at this point. :(

    I am so looking forward to finding the love of

    my life. See I am almost 50 and the men who approach me are either younger than my children or look like Benjamin Franklin, and I have no attraction to them. I don’t want to sound picky but I want someone between these options. I see people who look so unusual and yet they...

    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...

    I just don't understand it anymore.

    Hell I never did. I've dated two guys that I met on EP. First one I wasn't ready for a relationship. Second one things were going good, and then he stopped messaging me for like a week. On the 8th day I tried being with someone else and I really liked them. I had moved on from...

    We went out for lunch.

    It rained. I wore my cap. I totally forgot I brought extra clothes. After lunch we walked to the car. She walked under the rain while I walked under the shops with my cap on. When I came home I realised what a stupid and selfish person I am. I could have held her hand and...

    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 dated a senior at work,

    well I thought we were seeing each other but right after we had sex he dumped me. Now the arsehole is after the new intern at work and I feel like such an idiot because it still hurts.

    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!

    I'm awkward at pretty much everything.

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

    So I tried really hard to date this girl,

    I was a proper gentlemen. Kind, curteous and polite. After several outings I dont really think that she understood that I was interested in her. I still dont think she gets it.

    Went on a date with a guy

    who asked me out, just walked up to me and started talking. I was alittle taken back but continued conversing. We went to Hyde park- his favourite place to sit lie underneath the big trees and watch the world pass by. The next night he called and asked to meet up again only with...

    with me lately, which I don't have time for, but he purposely doing things that he knows make me upset and thinking that I don't know, which I find very immature. He also hasn't texted me for 2 days which is not like him because we talk everyday. I am getting very fed up with...

    or rejection I barely go on dates and when I do I feel like I'm supposed to be with this person for life. I'm not an interesting person like that and talking about myself is nothing but stories of sadness or hard times, so I mostly listen and almost faints when I'm asked about...
