I'm approaching middle age and I really have a problem with dating. Just Dont understand the point of it. Perhaps it's just me, but all dating seems to be is going out for a meal, bowling or cinema - general awkward chit-chat finding out about the other person (or not). Kind of feels stuck between being friends and looking for a relationship. Not really sure how I should be although I try to be myself, which fails because the real me must frighten people away as I never hear from them again after date two or three. I try to follow guides and advice, be a gentleman, try not to talk about particular subjects.
Generally dating seems boring and I feel like I'm fishing around uncomfortably for a person to have a relationship with. What makes it more difficult for me is that I would like to meet someone and have a great time, have fun, be sexual, communicative and plan things. Trouble is if dating doesn't work, where else do I go. Really need help here as I'm getting to the point of seclusion and isolation

If dating is boring, you certainly haven't met the right girl yet. ;) If you meet someone you have great chemistry with, it get your heart going and you can't stop thinking about them. Sounds like you need to flirt more if you're actually interested. :p I've only been single for a year and I'm exhausted, I know exactly how you feel!0
