Most Helpful Guy
I can't speak for other guys, but dating has definitely been frustrating for me. It's not that hard for me to get girls to respond on online dating sites, but after that is when things have gotten tricky for me. Sometimes, they'll email me for a little bit on the site and then stop. Sometimes, I get a number and we text for a while and meet up, then she abruptly stops responding for whatever reason. I'm sure that I haven't said or did anything too weird on each of my meetings, and I try to look my best and be entertaining and respectful.
I think one thing that is holding me back, however, is my inability to drive. I've heard many women refuse to give a guy the time of day if he doesn't drive. In addition to this, driving instead of walking or taking a bus is more convenient and a person can go more places whenever and quicker. With me not having a car or a license, I missed out on a golden opportunity late one night with the last woman I was talking to. She said she wanted me over, but buses don't run at 2AM in my town (and she was one town over), and I couldn't afford a cab. When the next semester starts at the end of this month, I'm going to work harder towards saving up money and being able to drive.2
