In fact, I'm just your average single guy with an average physical appearance.
Since I had been out of the dating scene for years, I had no clue how to ask women out. The more women you hit on, the more you'll score." But that kind of shotgun approach to dating was not for me.
To make matters worse, I was -- and my lame efforts to ask women out always failed miserably. I couldn't deal with the paralyzing rejection I had to endure to find the women who would finally agree to go out with me -- and then, those women always turned out to be the "bottom-of-the-barrel," if you know what I mean. rather than continuing to torture myself further with constant rejection, I turned to online dating sites.
Then, all I'd have to do is wait for the women to e-mail me back, send me their phone number so that we can talk on the phone and get to know each other -- and then go out on a date. And here I thought my e-mails were unique, polite, cute, clever, interesting, sensitive -- and everything that I imagined a woman would want in a man.
I sent out dozens of them -- and then dozens more -- thinking that would cause at least one of them to e-mail me back. If you've ever joined an online dating site, this has probably been your experience, too.
