I'm 25 years old and I'm kind of getting fed up with the lack of romance in my life. I've never been asked out and don't have any experience and it's getting annoying. A little bit about me: I'm pretty smart (law student in LA), I'd say I'm decent looking (even pretty if I bragged a little) and one of my most valued personality traits is being nice and kind to everyone (and that's something I'm known for). I'm also pretty social, always trying to talk to people and going to events. When I meet a cute/smart guy, I'll talk to him and put myself out there, but I feel like I never get a response back. They either won't respond to a text or message or just be very brief in a way that ends any potential for conversation. I'm not blaming guys, but most of my friends who are doing well in their careers/studies, are nice and caring and beautiful get the same response. I don't mind getting married late or not at all, but there's 0 prospects and at 25 the lack of experience (even in the basic skill of going on a date) starts to get frustrating. Any tips from guys or girls with similar experiences?

i don't think dating is dead but its either changing or becoming less important. girls and guys still seem to want to be in relationships but a lot don't want to date random people to find one. they more seem to be dating people they already know or dated in past. the idea of going on a casual date with someone new does seem to be happening less even though we have more websites for such purposes.
people should in theory be finding more dates as options are endless online but they seem to be finding less. I think the people online are getting more picky , and where in past they'd go on a date to determine if they'd date someone more seriously, now they look at a profile instead.1

Maybe the ones you talked to they happened to be taken.
Also, I've noticed that most people expect the other person to do all the effort, which sucks a lot.0
