Nothing to report.  I’m not sure I’m going to even bother continuing.

    I think you need to take time for grieving. Dating is a marathon not a sprint. You have to pace yourself to avoid dating fatigue.

    Actually, you quite impressed player friend with your moves on the married lady. He said you’re already smooth. You just need practice.

    The rest of us were sitting here in stunned silence because you normally are so reclusive. Come back to it when you are ready. We’ll still be here.

      I’ve been thinking about it. I’m reclusive by choice, and my lack of exposure to women is probably a result of laziness more than anything else. My shyness and reclusive nature are not debilitating like those that the good doctor wrote about in Shyness. It’s just uncomfortable enough, with a low enough probability of a positive outcome to keep me on the sidelines.

      So, I’ve been trying the easy way – sending e-mails to strangers, and researching pros that I can pay $300+ for an hour of pretending that I’m the center of their universe.

      Finding a real date, much less a mate, is hard work. I’m not sure I’m up for it.

    I grew up painfully shy. I decided it was time to figure a way around it when I was in high school and i was losing opportunities because I was so nervous I couldn’t think straight. What I did was start talking to people. Yeah, I know, but what I did was make myself say something to people around me before they said something to me. I started out with “hi” and then around the corner I’d go, and over the years it’s evolved to being able to have a conversation with most anyone I run into without having a gut churning reaction. It doesn’t have to be anything particularly meaningful, sometimes it’s nothing more than an “I have been thinking about trying that, what do you think of it?” to someone reaching for a product in a store isle, but every little bit of interaction has helped.
    Fake it until you make it!
