What do you girls like to do? What are your hobbies, interests, loves? I'm being serious here, I really want to start meeting people but being that I 1) work a lot & it involves traveling and 2) have 100% *manly* hobbies and interests I don't get to meet many women outside of bars and clubs 1X a month.

Bars and Clubs are the worst way to meet women. They are usually filled with people not really looking for anything but to party. I am a nice girl, I was using the online dating sites when I was able to find my boyfriend. I found it hard to find a guy, and I was also shy.
I know you said you have tried online dating and don't get any hits, but I found OK Cupid to be bad for finding ppl. Just because there weren't many people from my country on there. Now, how many women have you actually messaged? Don't wait for women to message you, send out some messages. Good ones too like take stuff from their profile and put that into your message. If they post pics of a vacation they went on, ask about that. Just something that shows interest.
And what does your profile look like? Like did you put a lot of detail into it? I have done the online dating game for a few years now on and off and I have found out certain things work better than others on a profile. Make sure you have an updated picture, have a few pictures too. List a bunch of your interests, like travelling, where have you been? Have a favorite restaurant in a favorite destination? Talk about that. That gives you a chance to show your personality and also gives ladies and insight to who you are. Manly hobbies are fine too, just outline them on your profile. I'm sure there are ladies out there who like some of the same stuff as you :)
Well I hope you have good luck finding yourself a lady!
