For dating in real life, I don't want to come off as a creep. But, if I see a girl that I was interested in I really don't know what to say. I usually say hi and try to start a conversation. I don't want to seem like a guy on the prowl but, I do want a girlfriend who will be there for the long term. In my mind I have also been debating how long should you know a girl before asking them out? I mean if its a friend I would wait at least a month but, if its a stranger I think I would ask them right away. Am I right or wrong on that? Lastly, with all these girls that have been rejecting me/ignoring me my self-esteem is low :/.
I know confidence is key, I feel like I have that to some extend but, I fear that I will come as a creep. I also have to admit that I don't have that many friends. I plan to go to the bars alone, and a few meetups in the city. Any advice?
