Uh you just have to have faith I guess that someone will like you, for you, it's a mix of a little elbow grease, some luck and a bit of good fortune, often times it'll happen in a place or from a person you least expect it to, and sometimes both at once.
Haha this could have been my question as well :D I've been single for 40 years, can you imagine? And I do love the girls but... every time I felt a crush in the past she was not single :o And the one time I tried a dating site, the one girl I liked a lot and started to like more and more, chose another guy eventually :-( :-( In my age class there are not many single people, it's not easy to learn to know someone...
Yes, definitely put yourself out there, but I have to correct you on one thing. You don't NEED to date. You WANT to date. Big difference. You'll have to kiss lots of frogs to find your prince, as I'm sure you already know.
Just go out and meet new people and enjoy yourself. Don't worry about "dating". Just have fun meeting new people a d it happen naturally. I'm having trouble beginning my dating life. I've only been on two real dates and I'm almost 24. Just be yourself and look to have fun don't worry.
I've never had a girlfriend or ever been on a formal date in my life. I'm almost 26. So I really couldn't help here, (but maybe I could get help from here lol)... by the way, is this first sentence a sad fact? or?
