I'm 23 i've been told i'm good looking i have a great job, will have my own place soon (It's a flat that's still being built)
I have a few hobbies (guitar being one of them). I've been told by female friends i'd make the 'perfect boyfriend'. Yet despite all this i seem to have the worst luck with women. Whenever i get to the stage where i'm about to ask them out (normally after a week of chatting everyday) they just stop talking to me for no apparent reason
It's really starting to hurt my self-esteem and fuel the anger that i've been respressing for 5 years (First love wasn't into me; that's another story). I'm starting to think that girls my age still don't want the responsible guy; they want the dick and douche.
Note i am quite confident when flirting and can flirt very easily (to the point where i'm not aware i'm even doing it) yet despite this still have trouble getting a girl to actually go on a date with me
Are girls around my age (23) still not looking for a long term boyfriend? Should also point out i've never had a girlfriend

Yeah, girls your age look for a long term boyfriend. The thing might be - you're not meeting those girls. You're meeting the ones who are feweling their egos with your flirting until they find someone who they're really looking for - looks, personality, common interests wise...
I might be totally off on this, but I have a hunch I'm close to something here. Online dating - sceptical about it because people are always looking for 'something even better' on there and having casual texting 'fun' on the way there...0

"I've been told by female friends i'd make the 'perfect boyfriend'. Yet despite all this i seem to have the worst luck with women."
This sounds like classic nice guy scenario. I think you are probably being too gentle and caring and affectionate towards any girl you think could make a love prospect.
Sweetness generally won't win you girls who want you, it'll win you girls who want you as a friend instead.
To start changing things around, I think you have to start learning to become sexually-threatening. Embrace some of those masculine qualities which want to dominate and control and conquer. Become more independent, don't give a girl your full and undivided attention any time she talks to you. Start embracing the mindset that a woman has to *earn* your interest just as well as you have to earn hers.
And last but not least, network and socialize. Get comfortable talking to and being around lots and lots of people, be fly at parties.
I think with the right adjustments you can start turning things around. Remember that women are like men when it comes to attraction. They're not attracted to endearing qualities like sweetness. That's what they fall in love with, but that's not what catches their eye in the first place and makes them want to have sex with a man.0
