I am 26, live alone, go to school (business major), and work. I have been working since I was 13 and take pride in it. I have also never had a serious girlfriend, I have approached some women but it hasn't worked (either they have a boyfriend or are married) so I stopped trying and continued to focus on school and work. The women in my family think I am a great man and could bring something excellent to a woman's life but honestly I just don't see what they see. My cousin who is 21 recently got married and is having a baby. She told me "working and going to school is good but that can't be all my life is about. Do you really end up alone and forever?" I told her "I came to the conclusion women just aren't into me so I am doing life on my own. Can't force a woman to like you and I won't try to make them interested." She got stern with me and said "that's an excuse to not try anymore. Use online dating there's a woman out there for me even if I don't feel like there is one who could like me." She just wants me to try because she doesn't want me alone in my apartment forever. Would you take this dating advice from women in your family if you have struggled with dating?

Yeah, your family is right. If you don't want to end up alone, you have to try. What do you think everyone else out there has been doing? No one is going to find you in your apartment sitting by yourself. You have to take the initiative and at least make yourself open and available to finding new women and/or having them find you. I mean if anything, is sitting at home alone with no one making you happy and fulfilled and you can see yourself on down the road doing the exact same or do you want more than just that with someone else?1
