I'll try to shorten what can be a long story.
I was raised in a very conservative church and so all of my skills at picking up women were 100% tailored to being used on women inside the church and with the intent of marriage in mind. Well, it worked. I got married. She then went crazy (I'm sure everyone says that but I'm not making it up, like fairies and dragons and Greek goddesses and souls from 3000 years ago being real things type crazy) and I was out on my ear at age 25. Further events made me really question the church and eventually fall away from it and now I'm approaching life from a new and less restricting perspective at age 27 and I'm pretty dang clueless.
My moral system is still pretty much intact, I'm not out looking to score with 600 women before the end of the year but I do need some sort of method or something where I can at least proactively meet people in hopes of meeting someone I like. I can't do it at church, most people at school are 19-20, and I don't drink.
I went on Craigslist and met and dated one girl, but everything besides that one has been a robot or an unattractive girl. I went on datehookup and met one girl but never dated, no luck at okcupid or pof (I think due to my lack of good pictures of myself and probably my openers weren't very good; both accounts are under kevinnumber2 as well if you want to look at them).
My current strategy is to meet guys at school and get invites to social gatherings and try to meet women at those places. Once I get to talk to a girl, I have no problems and they pretty much all like me. I don't think I'm bad looking and I'm good with humor once I know the person a bit. My trouble is that I don't know where to go to meet women for the most part, I don't know how to open whether in person or real life, and I probably don't know other things but at so green at this that I don't even know what to ask.
Again, not looking to go bang skanks. I don't care if my final tally when I die is three (currently two). I do care if my entire life is spent sitting at home playing MMOs because I don't have anyone to do anything interesting with.
I will be looking over the initial guides and the noobie thread as well.
