My dating life is doomed.
For starters, I;m a "nice guy." I also totally lack confidence with women. And, I'm on the sensitive side of the male spectrum. I've tried all sorts of things over the years to meet women: online dating, cooking classes, dance lessons, even volunteering at marathons. I've certainly met some great friends along the way, and a few cool girls I did end up going out with. Unfortunately, the women I dated weren't the ones I was interested in; while the ones I really liked blew me off.
Now I'm in my 30s, and feel like I've tried everything: improving myself, creating opportunities to meet women, even experimenting with faking elements of my personality. But I'm still totally self-conscious about getting the women I want.
