    So I'm a little frustrated. I live in a college town and get guys that come and go so often that I can't seem to get a date. Is there any tricks I don't know about? I'm fit, intelligent, and not exactly ugly... Am I missing something?

    Maybe the guys in your area are intimidated by you?

    Well a guy will never tell you he is. But what do you do when you're intimidated? Ignore?

    Are you approachable?

    Barring the Heinous Anuses that cross your path,...what do you look for in another guy? And , like Judas had stated, are you approachable?

    I'm not really sure what you mean by guys that come and go? So you have had guys knocking on your door? If that's the case then, the real question is, what do you do when they come knocking?

    I think the main thing is if you're approachable or not. I remember seeing in another thread about the "Resting bitch face" where you think you look approachable but don't look that way too others.

    He said he lives in a college town. Maybe he needs to stop dating college guys who are only in town temporarily.

    The social apps seem like a easy way to get dates but I've met my last 3 boyfriends in real life. Join some meet up groups. Ive met guys at gay yoga, hiking, indoor rock climbing . I met my current BF thru a guy that I met paddle boarding with a Gay outdoor activity Group.

    Consider dating men older than you. like in the 28 to 35 range. They're more likely to be interested in a relationship.

    I think guys in college figure they'll be leaving soon and most have no idea where they're likely to be or what they'll be doing. So commitment seems like asking for trouble. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be making good friends. Try backing off the dating and just start doing things with guys you meet and like. If there's chemistry beyond just being a buddy, things will develop. Or you could just go for sex. No reason two guys starting with good sex can't become more. My guy and I started with a sex date and we've been together almost eight years. And I expect another 20-30. Relax a bit.

    You should try OK cupid, I have a couple of normal dates on there. But yeah, it didn't turn serious and *Gasp, I used Grindr and had a couple dates too. Lol, nothing serious though. Some of the guys I like on here just live too far from me and I just get very weird emails on here so I decide to completely ignore guys on here Unless if he's cute, a good guy and prince charming material?? lol jk icon_redface.gificon_razz.gif

    Thanks guys for the replies! Yea a college town does kinda suck to try and find a date. So overall, I'll just keep an open mind to anyone. And even older then me. There tends to be stability there. But even on here I'm still hopeful that I may meet someone.

    You are missing the right person. They are just rare and don't expect to find them easily. You are not the only one looking. There are millions out there struggling with their loneliness every day and some breaking up and some just got in love and some are looking for you. icon_wink.gif
    So be where you are 'til someone comes in to you. icon_lol.gif

    No, not at all and that's not really a bad thing. Getting bogged down with dating and attachment is really not worth the effort, because at some point it's going to get boring. Keep it moving and don't get tied down.

    It's always a challenge when it's so easy to dismiss someone by appearance only. Make sure you're representing yourself in a way that will attract the qualities you're looking for.

    I was actually wondering this, as well: Do guys actually use the site for dating? I just joined yesterday, but I've lurked around before. Doesn't seem like many guys do, but could just be because I've never had an account.
