Dude, it's really pretty easy. Read their profile, find something you have in common or something interesting that they're doing (college majors, hobbies, careers, ect.) and comment on it. If you have experience with what they're doing, mention it. Let's say she likes zombie movies, and you like zom...

One of the most frustrating problems I've encountered is not being able to find social groups where it's socially acceptable to go alone. I've gone to festivals and events. I was the only one there without friends/an SO/children. I've tried going to local bars and clubs. Only one there without frien...

I read a statistical analysis by the OKC staff about shirtless pictures. They determined that while everyone claimed shirtless pics weren't desirable, men who had shirtless pictures (and the muscles to go with it, obviously) had a far higher rate of response.

If you have to use Craigslist for anything, I'd definitely meet in a very crowded public place. One of the biggest scams around here is meeting someone off of Craigslist, and that person then calls in a group of accomplices to rob the person. Another guy was selling his truck. When the guys showed u...

I hate to say this, but the vast majority of men will consider being uninterested in physical relationships a deal-breaker. It also sounds to me like you've dealt with some creeps, but that unfortunately sounds like the experience of a lot of women no matter what the circumstances. If you don't want...

Googlrs, where do I find meet up groups. All the SciFi conventions are in other cities, which is problematic as I don't drive or have any friends to bum a ride from. Plus I work Saturday so if I did bum a ride how would I get back for work? Sorry, should have mentioned that Meetup.com is actually a...

Besides, there's the implication that you're being treated for something. And nobody wants to bother a sick stranger out of courtesy, much less hit on them. No, family and friends of the ill also frequent hospital cafeterias; in fact, very sick people are more likely to be served meals in their roo...

Okay... Through one of my friends at my community college, I friended a female student on Facebook. Very shortly after that, I get a request from one of her friends, who I'll call Jane Doe, to protect her identity. Anyway, this afternoon after I came back from shopping, I got on my computer for the...

Most of the people I've worked with in the past probably assume that I'm a psychopath. My supervisors love me because I show up and do what has to be done, but none of the other staff members want anything to do with me. The place I'm at right now is pretty good though, and people are fairly friendl...

I really can't recommend this. I mean, let's say that you do meet a suave, accomplished doctor who wants to take you out to dinner. Then you get to explain that you were at a hospital dining area for the specific purpose of meeting male doctors. Besides, there's the implication that you're being tre...

I actually go out of my way to avoid interacting with women at all because I'm terrified of making them uncomfortable. So if I ever see any girl glance over at me in public, or approach me for something at work, I pretend there's something stuck under my fingernail or that something interesting is i...

I'm kind of stuck in a paradox with this. There are times, especially during the weekend when I have some downtime, when I desperately want to be around other people and included in a group. I've gone to AA meetings a few times because there was just no other option. I used to drink a lot, but I hav...

a disservice has been done to the OP, IMHO. he wanted to vent about his situation and life in america, and instead it turned into a political debate. The cruelest part about life in America is the medical system. Many of the people in this forum could really benefit from therapy, but it's extremely...
