Those women are all women. You just found them at different locations. Different sources of defined leads. Same thing with online dating. Tinder, OkCupid, Target, Coffee shop, you just gotta take the good with the bad. So all my life I struggled with the fact that I was five-seven and I started balding at age sixteen. That always bugged me. All the tall guys with great hair lines will always get the girls and I was never good enough. Not to mention I grew up in a trailer. Yeah I was dirt poor my whole life. That pretty much sealed the deal. I mean you went off and went to school and get five years of undergrad so you might have came from money maybe.
What I mean is that I could easily have found a way to make you better than me in my head because I was insecure about my height, and my hair, and my wallet. You can join a gym. Because what really matters to women is different than what matters to men.

Congruent guys like a chick and talk to the chick. The follow-through of confidence and directness and that will take you to promise land. Forget physical attractiveness man. It matters but to an extent.
But just like rich guys get chicks and jerks get chicks. Because when you act like a weirdo, when you act out of place, and wacky, people are going to be a lot more self-righteous about bringing you down a peg. So sit your ass in the chair at the coffee shop all damn day and talk to the people that surround you.

Just look at them as an opportunity producer. This is the second scariest part. In college, there used to be some silent indicator that things were serious.

And not just internal pressure but also external pressure. When will you get married? But remember, once you fall into a routine, you limit the number of new people you're able to meet.
When you always go to the same bars, always eat in the same restaurants, always work out at the same gym at the same time, you never stray from your comfort zone — and you limit the number of new experiences in your life!

It's nerve-wracking for a guy to approach a big group of girls to start a conversation with just one.

Face it, a year-old guy is a year-old guy no matter what.
