What is it about being single? I go out to stores to shop and see couples who seem to be happily in love. I wonder if I notice it more because I am single. There is no doubt in my mind that men and women have different ways of selecting a mate. I notice every woman and some I notice more than others. Women tend to be more sly about this than men. If you notice a woman checking you out she is more likely to be very interested in you than just looking. I am not really into the bar scene anymore so were exactly do you go to meet attractive single women. Once I had a woman hit on me in line at the grocery store. She was a lot better at it than I would have been. She simply got in line behind me and gently nudged me with her cart. When I turned she apologized and immediately opened up conversation with me. It’s funny but later on after she gave me her phone number I thought about how confident and impressive she was.
I guess after years of being terrible at picking up attractive women I still don’t understand how to play the game. There are two very close friends of mine who could pick up a woman anywhere and at anytime. They seem to look at it like they were buying a watch or picking out an outfit. They are never nervous in going after a lady they find attractive. In my experiences there are two types of guys. The guy who has no trouble meeting women and keeping them interested. I am definitely not this guy. I am the guy who is actually so worried about offending a lady, or even worse being rejected that I fear trying to open up and start a conversation. I think there are plenty of guys like this out there. What exactly happened to make us so shy? Why is fear stopping us from living?
After a little bit of research I have found that I actually come off as being fake or even doubtful of myself and what I have to offer. I’m just curious as to what steps we can take to break these uncomfortable habits and put ourselves out there by showing who we really are.
