haha suggested by a certain someone.

lol I don't have trouble socialising with women, but there are always limitations I put myself into. I usually just end up being friends with them. Therefore I get no where but I know girls.

STL is supposed to give me tips and then I will own them all

Basically you just have to be really confident and a little arrogant and girls will be interested. Thats what I have found anyway.

yeah ive tried that didnt really work out that well.
otherwise i dont have any problem talking with girls its just a matter of meeting them, im not a big fan of clubs and such so that doesnt help and working in a male dominant crash repair industry is not the best for meeting the oopposite sex either.:(

When I was single, I really struggled. I usually managed to only become friends with them. I struggled to give a good impression or something.
But that was when I was single..
My girlfriend was one of those girls who I had become friends with and then later we got closer.

Where's the "I don't need to meet girls/guys, I have my TF collection!" option? :p

I think my problem is more a case of "I don't really have the opportunity".

At high school I was seriously backward when it came to females, add to that I was on the bad end of the cool kids scale so I was NEVER invited to parties ... and of course had very few friends.

And those friends that I did have ended up leaving town for Uni. No point hanging around a small rural town anyway if you want a decent career.

Didn't really want to make friends with those that remained as their idea of a "career" is slinging bananas.

Hell I once had a former friend try to set me up with a girl who was proud of being a banana packer. Maybe i'm being picky but i'd like someone who's dreams are a little higher than bananas.

And i'm not one for partying either as I don't drink (taste buds don't seem to care too much for it) or even smoke and I sure as hell can't dance. Oh and I tend to be a little on the shy side so the thought of rocking up to a (or that should be "the") nightclub in town, grabbing a drink at the bar then going to chat up some chick and asking her to dance is just completely beyond me.

So even the few times that I have met a girl they soon find out just how boring I actually am as my conversations tend to revolve around geek stuff ... or they just don't get my sense of humour.

Plus there's the self-esteem issues where I don't feel i'm a decent enough person for someone else. Part of that stems from a dead end job that's going no where, though that's only for one more week before I start my new one! :D

I'm a bit of mix from shy to screwed up to just having no idea what the hell i'm doing with girls. :p

I know quite a few very nice, single women that can't seem to find a decent guy (except me of course but I'm taken and/or usually busy).

There are lots more girlies than guyies in the population but most especially the urban centres of Oz.

None of them are into Transformers though!:rolleyes:

Hell I once had a former friend try to set me up with a girl who was proud of being a banana packer. Maybe i'm being picky but i'd like someone who's dreams are a little higher than bananas.

I dunno, I kind of dream of having a simple life and i find it a bit disappointing that I'll never be able too. Sometimes, a simple life is the best life. But our society doesn't seem to like that.

And i'm not one for partying either as I don't drink (taste buds don't seem to care too much for it) or even smoke and I sure as hell can't dance.

I can't dance for crap myself but it doesn't matter too much. There's many other things you can do.

It sounds strange but I get more of a kick from accomplishing something geeky like playing a great game or getting a rare TF than being with a girl.

The biological 'attraction' exists but that is where it ends for me as I never find the company with a girl that interesting and putting up with her is not worth the 'pay off' in my oppinion.

What about asking them to come back to your place to check out Big Daddy?:p That would be so freakin funny.:D

I'm married so I'm not concerned now. When I was single I had mixed luck depending on where I was located at the time. I remember tuna fishing at Port Stephens... that is the place for single guys. The sailors club there (not what you think guys:p) had a ratio of about 4:1 women to men and they were on the prowl. I picked up everytime I went there. One time I went with several mates, we went straight for the bar on arrival and on the way this chick grabs one of my mates and says "come on" and off they went.:eek: I couldn't believe it.

I also met alot of women as when I worked as a DJ... but they were usually bottom feeders.

That ain't no dream there bud, it actually happened to me. Then she decided to take off with her ex... Oh well to hell with her..

I my self, am usually kinda shy, and not being much to look at, can find hard to actually get the confidence to go up and talk to some girls... Check out chicks are always easy to talk to, and I tend to converse a few of them. But they end up looking at me weird when I throw up 4 or 5 transformers items..

But at the moment, I'm happy to not think about the fairer sex, because of my resent heart break..

That comic kinda reminded me of that 40 year old virgin movie.

When I saw that movie and the 'girlfriend' saw the extensive comic figure collection in his house and then suggested for the dude to sell all his toys to make money, that just felt so freaking wrong. Basically what she was trying to do is change him to what she felt was more appropriate.

If that ever happened to me, my immediate response would be "You go before the toys, B**ch!"

whoops about the comic, sorry again! lol

but on the sidenote, i think its one of the concerns about having a collection lying around in your bedroom, they will all initially think its weird.
I always kinda clean up and make sure i dont have too many around my bedroom if theres any females coming over.
