Yes, your story definitely resonates. (I just sighed audibly.)

I applaud you for trying to date women you know in real life. So many people think that is the answer, but for me, I never seem to meet anyone in real life. I never get asked out. I tried to inquire about someone at my son’s basketball game. The guy was married — but not wearing a ring! (Thankfully, I had been discrete and asked someone he was with rather than approaching him directly.)

I suppose my point is that in theory the real world approach sounds fantastic, but in reality it’s not been fruitful for me.

I sure wish you all the best on your search! For what it’s worth, I think you look handsome in your tiny profile picture — fingers crossed your luck turns soon!

Thanks for reading and responding, Bill Smith!
