The depression of online dating
Having already low self esteem and no confidence just keep trying isn't a possibility sadly. You've still got your youth and little can take that away from you.
incase you didn't get it I'm saying you're a young stallion capable of going to the center of your town and walking up to anyone you see fit and striking a conversation.
I've never gotten a conversation from years of online dating let alone a date. I don't think anyone is serious about dating at all.
I always thought I wasn't that ugly or that boring but I guess I really am both. Oh, to make matter worst I don't think I'm have a single ounce of humor besides very dark humor.
I tried online dating when I was feeling better but the absolute constant rejection you face as a guy just got me down.
We don't have any outlets to help and it just further annoys me.
It may be hard but my best answer is to ignore the sites and do what makes you happy.
Get a dog, hang with friends, do something that gets you out that isn't for the purpose of socializing because my motto is most people are shit anyway so why am I making an effort to relate.:/ I just joined okcupid in the past couple weeks. I used to be so good at getting to know new people, and would regularly banter with complete strangers in public.
some times when im really distrought and no one will talk to me i go on craigslist and find people to talk to. About a month after the break up, i responded to a craigslist add that said "seduce me" it came from a 45f. I went from almost completely uninterested to full attention.
the post was about how no one treated her right, and how she wanted to feel special. I tried to get her name from her but she played really safe.
