The break ups thread got me to thinking about my own dating scene and made me realize that I have never had a serious relationship. Some say that's a blessing in itself (mainly my older brother). Well my only real GF was back at CR Washington in the spring prior to graduating in 07. We started as a fling but then actually started dating throughout the summer. Well just like everyone else in my class she attended Iowa and I was at ISU, she wanted to try it out and I agreed but a few weeks into the school year as freshman she became a Chi Omega at Iowa and I figured she was going to cheat on me anyway so I broke it off. This is my only real dating experience. I'm no stranger to the one night stands throughout my years at ISU so it's not like I'm socially awkward, in fact being from CR I feel like I'm way more social than most at ISU. But I'm done with one night stands, I'm getting to the point where I want a GF but I haven't tried in so long or had much dating experience that I'm lost in the game of dating. Anyway I receive enough initial attention from ladies to get interest levels up from both parties. But since I've been trying to date girls it's always the same thing, I try and set up some sort of date or try to hang out and they will always agree, but then when it comes down to that time it's always the same... they always bail on me. It's gotten to the point where I expect them to bail on me even if they say they want to hang out. I've heard it all, from "I just 'spontaneously' got sick" to "the weather is too bad for me to go out tonight." It's all getting old and I know it's not what I look like b/c I get plenty of initial attention and girls compliment how I look at parties quite often (the one night stands haha) So I know its got to be my game, I'm making them lose interest in me somehow and I don't know what it is. What do you think it could be? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
