Should I Just Give Up?I am generally an optimistic guy, but as I enter yet another year alone I am on the verge of giving up hope of ever finding someone to share my life with.
I don't know what the problem with me is, I am at a minimum an average looking guy, I make a decent wage, treat people nicely and am generally well liked. I am also intelligent, hard working and inquisitive, yet I am constantly turned down for dates to the point where I am thinking of packing it all in. I will admit I am not normal, I have an odd sense of humour, I like to do odd things and I see the world differently from most people, but is this really enough to isolate me from everyone else?
I guess I have three choices -
One - Pretend I am normal, follow 'the game', marry someone normal and keep up the lie for as long as possible,
Two - Continue as I am, a lonely oddball forever in search of love, or
Three - Continue as I am, but give up on ever finding anyone.
Anyone else out there ever been in the same boat? I would love to hear others opinions or experiences if they are similar.
16th June 2012 Update - Oddly enough, I gave up and suddenly became a lot more attractive somehow? Why do women seem to find being ignored attractive? But it seemed I was only attracting women who were firmly in the 'normal and dull' zones. Then I found someone who is very unique, mentally everything I am looking for, someone who I can relate to and cute to boot. I am not too sure if things will work out, I would like to think they will but I know reality gets in the way sometimes, but wish me luck! Thanks for all the support from everyone, it has made me realise I am not that unique that I could never find someone, I just had to look a bit further away than normal.
