Especially when one is 32, not very good-looking, still lives at home with mom, has no car, and is painfully shy around attractive women? frown

Well, I was very unlucky and shy until about 26 and I met my wife. I think it was mainly good luck, but also it was that I was ready to think about making someone else happy, not just myself. That and I set some standards which kept me from chasing girls of ill repute.

Wouldn't that be a "flock" of stuffed birds?

Birds -- living birds -- flock together by choice (or, at least, instinct). They're also all of the same species.

Those collected by the likes of Norman Bates had no say as to which other birds they were forced to associate, nor the rather traumatic process by which they ended up in Bates's possession.

Hardly a flock, that.

Join the military. They might not want you at 32, but girls like men in uniforms. big grin Also, you'll get a lot of money (being you don't have a girlfriend), plus your physical appearance will improve with all of the PT.

The way things are going, that's tantamount to saying that women like men in body-bags.

According to Ann Coulter, some do. I guess she'd know; she seems to harbor no particular objection to them herself...

Of course, Coulter just likes U.S. servicemen and Democrats in body-bags.

I wouldn't recommend joining the military to get a girlfriend, because you can do PT on your own - go to a gym!

Years ago when I was in the same tough spot as Jack, working in a grocery store past the usual age, I went to the state's Department of Labor office and found out about the Job Training Partnership Act.

The program helped me get a somewhat better job at a local business, and it paid (I think) half my wages during the training period. Within three years, I had experience in a useful field and was able to get a still better job at another company. With those two steps up, I could afford my own apartment.

I'm reading the other advice posts in this thread, because if anybody needs help finding female companionship, it's me.

In my extremely limited efforts, I've found that the best candidates (for lack of a better term) are friends-of-friends. I've fallen too many times into the 'just friends' trap, so it's better to only know the person a little bit before dating them.

I just got one so now I'm an expert!

If you see someone you like then make eye contact. Don't be discouraged if she doesn't smile or react positively. Talk about any old crap such as the surroundings. Suggest going for a drink.

Don't waste your life looking for the perfect woman. You'll grow to like her more over time if it's right.

well I suggest since you know what you have to work on...change for the better and get out there. You aren't going to meet anyone if you have no confidence in yourself.
