    who knows, maybe you can meet someone through here

    Ah, well being sinlge isn't so bad. Besides this isn't exactly the best place to try to meet people. Most are taken, uninterested or not worhth it.

    Just talk to new people IRL, may not always go smooth, but as I like to say, better to try and fail than fail to try.

    In all honesty I ENJOY being single. Nothing against you kids with your relationships, engagements, and marriages, but I don't have the time resources, or attention span to hold on to anything steady! Maybe I just haven't found the right one but I just don't feel like being judged, metered, and eventually rejected by someone who in the end is just settling for me because they think they can't find any better, or because they think they can change me like some kind of show chimp that they can flaunt in front of their friends.

    Don't g me wrong good relationships, when they happen, they're alright. But they're few and far between which only leaves BAD relationships, and they're nothing but slavery. SLAVERY.

    Stay free! Stay single! My name is Master Hicks and I approve of this message!

    No one is interested in me IRL is the problem.....not one person from college, or my workplace, or even at places like the mall or whatever seem remotely interested in a nerd like me....I'm convinced there is not one person is San Antonio who'd ever be caught dating me even just once

    San Antonio just sucks for the single scene. Again, you have to make an effort IRL, not just count yourself out, nobody is going to be all love at first sight anyway, you have to get out, spend some time, do some activities.

    I don't know how else to make an effort aside from walking around in public wearing a sign asking to go out with me

    Being single is fun and all. You can get away with flirting with mulitple people, but sometimes you miss that social companionship you get from dating.

    Truthfully, I just want a girl that'll be happy to do duet cosplays with me for a long while and not so girly girl. Then on the other hand, being single is so less stressful and easy on your wallet.

    Personally, the best relationships (dating or friendship wise) for myself have been by putting myself forward and meeting others at conventions.

    I've never enjoyed being single because it makes me feel like I am alone and unattractive or unappealing....patches I don't like going to bars because I don't drink much at all and I'm not looking for a drunken hookup

    Then try online dating....you're pretty much already doing it here.... OkCupid, for example. When I was a singleton, it was a good repository of potential partners. It helps match you up with people and you can browse about.

    Personally, stop being all "nobody likes me wahwahwah" Confidence (not to be confused with arrogance) is attractive; desperation is not. If you don't like you, then why should I? Find clubs and hobby groups of people who are like-minded ( like here) and hang out with them. I can't tell if you're still in school or not, but university clubs are almost always seeking new membership. You do actually have to try to be personable, but "in person" is kind of key.

    I actually have been trying various dating sites for years now, OkCupid included, and from what I have witnessed, most of them are filled with either fake profiles or people who were single but now aren't....and in the case of OkCupid I am apparently more of a friend or enemy than an actual match to anyone in or around San Antonio.
    I am in college still but I took this year off to work more & earn more money but unfortunately the colleges I went to didn't offer any clubs for anime or video games.

    I am single but let me put this out there.

    1. Confidence is an amazing thing.
    2. Be yourself. There is someone who loves you for all you are and all what you aren't.
    3. Don't be afraid to fail. There are going to be people out there who will flat out reject you, brush it off and don't worry about it. (trust me I know part, first hand)
    4. Stop being complaining about the fact you can't get someone. No one is going to walk up to you and say I will stop all your complaining.

    Sorry if that offended you.
