It's Just Frustrating
I'm 21 years old now, been single for a year. I've made bad choices in the past and became involved with a lot of women who haved caused me great pain.
But now i'm in this dry spell, and i've never had to assert myself with women before but I am learning. And I have a lot of good qualities, I am intelligent, funny, and handsome. But none of these qualities seem to count for much if I cant play these stupid games. Apparently theres this whole process nescessary to hold a girl's attention and I just don't much care to do it. I like to be honest and open but when I get that way my precious few prospects get bored because I am not being mysterious.
And so I sit here and think about this and wonder if I'm going to spend the rest of my life trying to trick girls into liking me or if its something they will grow out of.
My life experiences has given me a no-nonsense approach to things. I know what I want and I like to go after it. But I either get assertive girls who pursue and then mistreat me or I go after the meeker type and they get bored because I don't string them along.
I'm just a nice guy who wants a nice girl to be close to. And its taken me a while to get this way but it seems like no girl is up to the task. I know i'm young and I can only hope it will get better. But it is so hard to view it that way from my position.
