How not to be a lonely guy?


Any suggestions?

I think it's tough for the introverted intellectual types like myself to find a decent woman. It always seems like the disingenuous sleazy jocks end up with all the women.

Well, first off let me give you some advise. You don't go slamming all of womanhood on imdb.
We all don't act like they do in the movies.

Second of all if you are truly looking for a decent woman you need to look in places where you can find them!

I know plenty of lovely women who have much to offer a man, but the men want the pretty looking empty headed bimbos and then complain when they aren't much of a companion.



It’s good to dream

Um, true, not ALL women are like the lame ones portrayed in movies like this but I am a woman and I am sorry to say that a lot, if not most of them ARE like that.

Some simple things to consider: don't try too hard because nothing will ever happen if you do.

Make eye contact and smile at people. Do the typical gentlemanly things like holding doors and so on.

And stay in shape. :) I don't care who you are or what anyone says: if you're not in decent shape then you're going to make EVERYTHING else that much more difficult. It's a fact and anyone who says it is not is in denial or a liar. I'm not saying heavy peeps can't find love but honestly most people are not attracted to people like that--even the ones who ARE like that don't think it's attractive.

If you like weird things like MST3K for example then be sure to attend fun events where there will be people there who like it too. In this example, go to the Rifftrax Live events. If you like science fiction movies and stuff then go to a sci-fi convention. If you like animals then volunteer at a shelter where they have events or go to a doggie marathon (like the VPI K9K). If you like board games and puzzles then try finding social groups on sites like meetup.com and go to weekly events. My sister does that and she has made some decent friends and there are definitely shy singles who go as a way to meet others like them. :)

Things like that.

I agree with most of what you said in your post (MST3K RULES!) but as far as weight goes you'd be surprised how many people arent that shallow. I've seen guys in great shape with heavy set women as well as fat sloppy dudes with poor hygene somehow pulling cute, thin attractive women.
