Title says it: I've never had a girlfriend, rarely had a date. I'm not bad looking but I understand now that I chased 'em too hard. I projected neediness. Of course it doesn't help that I've rarely had much money and now live in low income housing. I'm sort of an intellectual type which is some ways makes it worse. I understand now that a few of them might have been interested if I'd played it cool and not chased them so hard. I figured out years ago that nice guys finish last but It took me a while to understand WHY and I have some understanding now but running out of time. Hoping I'll get girlfriend before I'm too old to enjoy her. I'm after younger women, not that I'd necessarily turn down a woman my age but they aren't knocking down my door,either. I have one in mind who 36 and I'm trying not to get obsessed with her because I understand that's exactly the way to turn her off. Hardly have money to pay my rent let alone buy books and tapes but I'm learning a few things lately. Well,this is more or less my introduction; just thought I'd throw this out there and see what comments it inspires.
