      are you open about it? i'd be just open about it, not try to hide it, and see what they say.

      my bet is that with a good dating profile, and if you are fun and interesting guy (don't know you sorry) i bet there will be some women who wouldn't see it as a problem.

      ^^ I doubt it, you might be looking in the wrong places. Do activities you enjoy that are group based, something where you can meet people. Friends of friends? Unfortunately you can't just phone it in with dating gotta take some chances surround yourself with good people. If something is not working do something else. Mitigate your insecurities if you can, if your struggling with something, someone else might be struggling with another issue and they are insecure about it.

      Take a chance you never know what might happen.

      Yea, I have always been open about who am I. When I told them that I am hearing impaired, the whole vibe has changed to less words and etc.

      Don't sweat it. Be yourself and put yourself out there. Don't worry about rejection as dating takes some time and effort. There are still some really good folks out there, you gotta weed out some trash but that's like anything worth while in life. Try online dating since you can put it right out in writing that you are hearing impaired, that in itself will weed out a lot of flakes.

      Are you urban or rural? The reason why I ask is due to the potential of meeting up with a club that may cater to hearing impaired people. Someone who may be hearing impaired might be easier to see where you are coming from. Just a thought.......

      Regardless, get yourself out there and good luck!

      So yesterday I went out with the same girl that I have been dating for the past 4 or 5 weeks now to the local restaurant. There was some couple sitting together at another table and apparently she went with that guy together to high school and even elementary. This morning when I called her before she had to leave for work she said that he sent her friend request on facebook. At first I thought that why would he sent her friend request if he was with someone in the restaurant. I also asked her yesterday if they were dating in the past and she said that she just know him from school and nothing ever happened between two of them. Am I overreacting about this guy? She didn't really have to tell me this, but at lest she's honest

      dating drama

      I'd say over reacting a little bit, but not too much. Slow it down a bit and let her put some effort into it now. See what sort of response/effort you get from her when you ease off. You'll know in a week or so how interested she is in you.

      The less interest you show initially will make her want you more. Are you dating anyone else, or are you two exclusive?

      I don't have that much money to go out with multiple girls. We usually go out at least twice on each week and sometimes even more than that. Very frequently she's the one telling me that she wants to see me when I'm available. We might see each later today, she wanted to go see the new Fast and Furious movie or play tennis since it's so nice outside. :shrug:

      Apparently I've missed quite a lot in the last month and a half. Not much to say, met a girl at my job, she works for a massage therapy center. Thing that sucked was after we started to texting but she after like 5 she would stop then nothing until I sent a text, this happened for for a few weeks and then nothing. She also blew me off a few times when we made plans...very frustrating but I'd put money that she's dating someone and I was the side dude, whatever. Funny thing though, an old friend of mine hit me up over the weekend, I knew she was always interested in me but never put much thought into it. I normally don't go for car girls but it's kinda nice to talk about things we have common ground on, so we'll see just not gonna put to much into it yet...

I accepted the fact that I'm going to have to be seen in this stupid looking car, but now he's around his "IDGAF Traphouse buddies", they have a video camera out, and they're pretending they're in a rap video."

      Hi friends! I hope you've all been well.

      I've been ineligible for The Official Singles Thread for a bit over a month but eh, my lady has been making me feel so down. I may be rejoining you guys sort of soon if things don't turn around. I can only hear "life sucks" so many times this early in a relationship before I start feeling like this isn't the connection I've been looking for. I don't want sound like one of those people where it's like "ah, this isn't perfect, so let's just toss it and see what else I find" but there's some other stuff too.

      I had a girlfriend for a couple of years that was kind of like that. After a while, she was very negative about almost everything. And I'm usually an 'up' kind of guy. She was always complaining about her life, but unwilling to do anything to make it better for herself. I felt that if anything was going to improve, I would have to force her to. And I never liked the resistance I would get for suggesting changes. I eventually broke up with her.

      My advice: suggest some changes she can make to get her own life back on track. If she makes some effort (even if she asks for help), then that's a really good sign. If she's not going to do anything and still complain, then move on.

      My life view is that you are only allowed to repeatedly complain about something if you are going to do something about it.

      I'm about to hit the 5 month marker with the current woman I am dating. Reevaluating things now as there is a communication issue and overall I just want/need more. Good company and never an argument, but the spark................it's just not there.

      Some friends say to stay with her till someone else comes along. I don't think that this is the right way to go about it. Then again, being single is overrated lol.

      I've found that never arguing is not really a good thing. It means that one or both people are not emotionally invested enough.

      I would start an open and frank conversation with her about it and see what she thinks. If you both decide that the relationship is worth working for, work for it! If not, you are wasting time.

      Agreed. In 5 months there's been only a few times where I thought that we would have had an argument, but nothing ever came of it and we just went about our business as usual. It's all about communication and lack there of. I've mentioned it several times but it just is left out there. She wants to hang out and I'm fine with that. We are exclusive but as noted before, I need/want more. However, I am not sure if I am ready to walk right now.

      We like each other and get along quite well. It just is missing something.

      I know. It's a bummer. She's a great girl but she's been through some serious stuff. She like refuses to seek help though. Not only with past troubles, but current stuff too. She seems to refuse to hear advice I try to offer. It's really kind of annoying. I'm not saying she'd have to do what I'm offering as advice, but she'll act as if I had been nagging her about it or something. Example: She's tight on money these days. I suggest she tries refinancing her car and shopping for car insurance quotes since state farm just raised her premium for no apparent reason. It was the first time I suggested that, but her instant response was "I've been financially independent for the past 14 years. I can handle this" and she didn't really acknowledge my suggestions.

      If I do break things off, which I'm feeling I should, I need to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible. I don't want things to somehow blow up and cause her or her sister to hate me lol. Her sister is my best friend's girlfriend.

      Never give advice, only impart suggestions.

      Sounds like she has too much stuff going on to be in a good place when it comes to dating. Sorry dood, but you're just the meal ticket. Your friends will understand, if not then not. But certainly sounds like time to move on.

      a friend from the internet actually was in town this weekend, so i pretty much had a vacation in my own town, showing it off, did pretty much everything, it was awesome.

      and man, i was struck by just how many beautiful women there are around town. i think i might have to get myself back on the market. holy crap.

      also, yoga pants .... let us have a moment of silence in respect for man's greatest invention.

      She's in love. And so am I.

      I'm going to post this not because it has anything to do with dating, but general life tips. I keep this page bookmarked and read through it every now and again. I think it's pretty good advice.

      http://www.tickld.com/x/45-man-tips

      45 Ultimate Tips For Men. Number 40 Will Help You Go Far In Life.



      1. Go for women you perceive to be "out of your league." You'll surprise yourself.

      2. Never have sex with anyone that doesn't want it as much as you.

      3. Never hit anyone unless they are an immediate threat.

      4. Every hat should serve a purpose.

      5. Never take her to the movies on the first date.

      6. Learn to wet shave.

      7. Nothing looks more badass than a well-tailored suit.

      8. Shave with the grain on the first go-around.

      9. Always look a person in the eye when you talk to them.

      10. Buy a plunger before you need a plunger.

      11. Exercise makes you happy. Run, lift, and play sports.

      12. Brush your teeth before you put on your tie.

      13. A small amount of your paycheck should go directly to your savings account every month.

      14. Call your parents every week.

      15. Never wear a clip-on tie.

      16. Give a firm handshake.

      17. Compliment her shoes.

      18. Never leave a pint unfinished.

      19. If you aren't confident, fake it. It will come.
