I'm 24 years old and I've never had a girlfriend. To make things worst I've never even had a female friend. The strange thing is that I'm not even ugly. I'm 6'1'', 155 lbs, muscular, and pleasant face. My problem is that I don't know how to socialize with women. I can start conversations with women, but I don't know how to get to the next level. I wish it were as easy as approaching a woman and telling her "i think you're really pretty, I want to get to know you, let me invite you for some coffee'' but it's not. Now, I've tried internet dating, but all the women I've met are unattractive. I know most of you think that I'm picky, but I'm really not. My standards are really low, but the women on these sites are really unattractive. So, I have reached a point in my life where I'm started to ask, maybe I'm meant to be alone?

You need a smack upside the head. You're only 24 and you're willing to throw in the towel now?
Do you quit at everything in life as quickly?
Look, you can talk to women - that already puts you ahead of most of the losers on this site who would rather spend time hating women than addressing their own short-comings when it comes to flirting and dating.
You're tall, muscular, and not fugly. And you can talk to women.
That means you have the tools and the resources. You just lack the necessary skill to use them both.
"I wish it were as easy as approaching a woman and telling her "i think you're really pretty, I want to get to know yoou, let me invite you for some coffee'' "
It kind of is that easy, though. Except you wouldn't say those particular words.
It's not like there's a magic script of lines you can memorise or anything - but the lines you use there, are just not ... normal. And that unnaturalness will put a girl off.
For example - An invitation to coffee should never be uttered before she's even had a chance to say a word. Your approach there, is to get to the invite in 3 sentences and never give her a chance to speak. That's a bad approach.
But that's all it is. A bad approach. If you had a good approach, you'd be golden.
Start by hogging the flirting section of the website. I think your conversational and flirting skills need a bit of work. Then read some of the very good articles on this site, about flirting. Then make a few female friends on the site, and practice flirting with them online. Writing gives you a chance to choose your words a bit more carefully than speech does.
You'll pick up the skills in no time, I'm sure.
