Zero dating experience

It was Saturday night, and my dinner-party guests had all gone home—except one. To my excitement, the cute grad student from my journalism program was lingering. He smiled at me in the candlelight, and my stomach flipped. I was being seduced!

What's the fastest way for a guy with ZERO dating experience to get a girlfriend?

New merch: Late to the dating game? November 5, So, I'm in my early 20s, graduated from college and now working. I have absolutely NO experience with guys, and I'm not sure how to gain some. I was kind of a tomboy in middle school and H. Now that I'm working very-youth oriented place at that , I find that any guy I'm attracted to is in a relationship - and I refuse to be the "homewrecker", so I'm not sure what to do.

At this point I don't need a long-term relationship or anything-just a date would be nice maybe even a first kiss! I used to have issues talking to guys I was attracted to all other guys, no problems-I had a ton of friends , but I feel I've gotten past that. Ideally, I'd like my first date to be the result of someone asking me out, if only because my confidence in this arena is low thanks to my lack of experience.

Truthfully, I've been tempted to even hire an escort, just so I can practice and gain some skills, but Anyway, sorry this is so long, but thanks for whatever help you guys can offer! Have you considered online dating? You've basically described the reasons why many people who join dating sites. Online dating doesn't work for everyone, but it's certainly a popular way to go out on low stakes dates with other people. It seems like you have a pretty good idea of some of the places where people meet each other and set up dates.

There's a ton of other places too, though. Good news is, they are all either specifically meant for dating websites, singles stuff, bars, etc. Both of these types of venues are all about winnowing the large yes pool of available dating candidates into a set that is both available to you that is, local and attractive to you. There are benefits and problems with both ways, but they most certainly aren't mutually exclusive so you can work them both if you want. Anyway, you seem to be asking about the etc.

By your account you've missed out on a big compulsory event school for a variety of reasons. I recommend you not mess with work because dating the job tends to awkward. Bars are out me too, ugh. There's Church for some people. But wait, you have interests! Are they interests that take you out of the house, to a place where other people go? Where it's ok to talk to one another at some point in the process? Follow those interests, dress up, talk to the people there who have similar interests, enjoy yourself, and smile.

Oh, and make a profile on OKCupid. Seconding OK Cupid. If nothing else, you'll make some friends. Do you drink coffee or other hot-brewed things? If so, start hanging out at a local coffee shop, enough to become what they would call a regular - you'd be amazed how many dates I've gotten that way, and how many friends I've made. If you are a bookworm, try a bookstore's coffee shop or a library, and don't put out the do-not-approach signals You're on the right track at least, knowing where you don't want to go and not setting too many expectations on this.

It's a long-term thing and, who knows, you might meet the love of your life in a totally unsuspecting place. Just do what you want, be yourself and find a public place where you can enjoy your hobbies or interests. You'll end up meeting a lot of like-minded people and will likely get a few dates out of it. Have fun! I'd like my first date to be the result of someone asking me out So, options: Yeah, online dating is probably a good way to go. Otherwise you need to get your friends to hook you up with their friends.

And i'd ask people you are interested in out: Also, hiring an escort seems like a horrible idea. That doesn't mean they don't have cute single friends. Can you try to make friends with these guys in a very platonic way so that they'll ask you to join them and their friends on a Friday or Saturday night? Wow, I phrased that poorly-- can you expand your social circle, through work, so that you are simply around more people in a social setting?

I bet that at least some of the guys you mention have similarly awesome, but single, friends. Learn by doing. Make mistakes. Come up to guys, talk, and get shot down. Go on craigslist, find a date you seem to have a way with words, so you should be capable of crafting a personal that will land you something outside of pictures of penises [which you will get in droves, be forewarned] and embarrass yourself.

This is the way everyone I know did it -- by screwing up over and over again. Let me try Y. Inconsequential as long as you do not tie your own self esteem to failing at something you've never tried before. I find that any guy I'm attracted to is in a relationship - and I refuse to be the "homewrecker", so A thousand times yes. In the journey you are starting, for the love of god, stick to that. Some times it will be harder than others, but temptation isn't fate and this will save you a lot of grief.

I'd like my first date to be the result of someone asking me out Man who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait a very, very long time - Chinese Proverb posted by 7life at No one I knew in college about the same time as you went on actual dates except for the friends who did internet dating, so don't be too quick to assume you're especially far behind any of your peers in terms of knowing what to do as an adult on a date.

It's ok to want to be asked out on dates rather than doing the asking yourself, but if you're just passively waiting you're going to make yourself miserable. And crazy. Choose to do things, like putting up an online dating profile or joining a coed sports club or whatever else is of interest to you that will increase your social circle and give you opportunities to meet men with similar interests.

I do think internet dating might be a good way to start--even if you ultimately decide you hate it. Seconding coffeeshops, bookstores, and other places where you can meet people with similar interests. One particular point of advice - you say: I went through a phase where I had a lot of trouble talking to people I was attracted to. I then went through another phase where I could talk to guys I was attracted to, but I didn't know how to flirt.

I was so confused. Why were they so oblivious to my attraction? I was clearly into them! I was speaking in complete sentences and smiling occasionally and not running away! It's only once I learned how to flirt - how to hold someone's gaze for just long enough, how to find excuses to touch their arm or sit a little bit closer, how to grin in that ate-the-canary way - that I started having any real success. I have no idea if this is an issue for you, but if it is - work on it! Learning how to flirt has paid off immeasurably for me.

Online dating helps because you don't have to rely solely on flirting to signal your interest - why else are you on a dating website, agreeing to get coffee with them? But it's still good to be able to make your desires clear. You say you want your first date to be a guy asking you out. That's totally fine, but you can't make him go totally out on a limb, he won't do it - you need to be able to communicate nonverbally that you're likely to say yes.

Oh, and also--it's dangerously easy to write off disrespectful or thoughtless behavior as "well, I'm lucky he's even interested in me Don't settle for less just because you feel that you're starting "late. If any one of these things is true, you will be a complete catch on an online dating site. Sign up, power through writing a half-reasonable profile, and you'll have zero problem getting dates with reasonable guys.

Just ignore the idiots and cretins. I'd like my first date to be the result of someone asking me out Smile, eye contact, repeat. This generates date-asking. Men are not mind-readers. Not sure why the social onus for asking out is on them, when they are generally not taught to be aware of body language and other clues. Make it easy on them and they will make it easy on you. For a long time I was afraid to ask girls out because I didn't want to offend them.

Shaun uh has it. Wish more women understood that stuff. Any close friends that might be able to set you up? Agreeing with chunking express that guys are clueless. When I was dating my wife she mentioned many times that girls were flirting with me and I had no idea also looking further back it seems I missed alot of other subtle hints.

It never hurts to ask someone out.

So around New Years I decided to try some online dating sites. I've had conversations with around 4 people and all of them have just vanished. And for my next trick, I will ask an AI to divide by zero. To them, dating is less of an organic experience and more of a collection of statistics.

What's the fastest way for a guy with ZERO dating experience to get a girlfriend?

When you write a dating advice column, one of the inevitable questions that comes up is the idea of inexperience. For many men, especially as they get older, dating inexperience is a vicious catch For a lot of men, the anxiety surrounding their dating inexperience can be overwhelming. They become intimidated by women whom they fear have more experience than they do. To them, dating is less of an organic experience and more of a collection of statistics, perfect builds and arbitrary rules that bear absolutely no relationship to reality. To these would-be dating Min-Maxers, you have a limited time within which to get your various firsts — your first date, your first kiss, your first sexual experience, etc. Of course, this window of opportunity bears about as much resemblance to reality as Pokemon does to animal husbandry. Some of this comes from simply not knowing the real statistics when it comes to sex and relationships.

All Rights Reserved. Terms and Conditions of Service. Dear Sara: I have been. Not a lot mind you. The truth is, in my twenties I struggled with mental illness—horrible depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. That made dating nearly impossible. I was so insecure. I was afraid of men and of having to speak to them. I could barely speak to the guys I worked with or went to school with. I never intended to stay one. I feel like there is something wrong with me.

It's really that simple. When a dude is great at chatting with strangers he'll look relaxed, he'll seem popular, and he'll naturally overtime learn to read the body language of others.
