I'm done with online dating. The theory of it is great, but when you have to "approach" someone online who is receiving tons of other messages from guys, your chances are just above absolute zero.
Part of me thinks I should just give up, and if I had any sense I would, but I'm lonely. How can I meet women who are interested in a serious, long term relationship at my age?

My boyfriend and I are 33 and 32. We met online at 31 and 30. We started as friends with benefits, and it progressed into something more. It only started that way because we both had fears of commitment at that time. But we were basically in a relationship with no label for 3 months.
I would go out around groups of other people who are into the same hobbies and interests, and meet new people in general. That way you increase your chances of meeting a single lady through other new mutual friends.0

First of all, one guy to another, DO NOT cut yourself short.
Women will not run to hook up with you unless you are a star of some sort. And believe me, you do not want anything more from them than what they can offer you in a single bounce.
Forget about what you look like, or how you measure up to a porn star. Women really do not care, and the ones that do, you do not want them anyway. Trust me.
Sure, any woman would love to have a tall dark hansome man come and sweep them off their feet in fleeting act of romantic drivel. Guys have the same corny thoughts about women. Neither of them are realistic or practical thoughts or dreams.
Would it not be nice to meet someone who genuinely cared about you? Someone who would put your hopes and dreams on the same plane as their own? Does it really matter how tall or short, or slim or heavy they are? No.
Stop thinking about yourself, and start thinking about how to make your next partner happy, EVERY DAY. You will not only get the hang of it, but so will your partner.
