    Ruger is one of my favorite wheel guns. I had a Speed Six, it shot better than I did. Excellent choice.

            It is very well balanced and is a durable gun. Will be fun shooting it for sure.

                Didn't even know this thread existed. This place is cool.

                Okay, topic starter;

                I'm attempting to develop a social life. I haven't had one...uh...ever. I was perpetually the fat guy from like 9 onwards so now, as the not fat guy (lost a 100 pounds in 8 months, now I'm 165) I need to develop all those social skills that I never had a chance too because I was busy stuffing my face in front of the TV with pizza and playing Madden with my buddies.

                I am woefully, woefully, socially inept. I've taken to the internet to get some suggestions, look for some guides on how to be more social (especially with the ladies) and frankly I'm floored.

                It seems like every guide/tip/advice out there is aimed at manipulating the ladies into thinking you're into the stuff they are but you're really not. Men, is this the state of our society where we now have to lie to the ladies to get them to give us a second look?

                • Don't look for that stuff on the internet. Take up a sport and join a team or club and meet some guy friends you can hang out with. Women should be the least of your concerns before you get comfortable in your own skin and social situations. You need to learn how to hang out with other guys before you're ready to handle a woman.

                    ^this. Also, lying is a losing game in the long run. It might score you a quick piece but it wont last.

                    • you asked men, but from a lady: no. I married a somewhat socially inept geek before geeks were cool, and i picked him because i liked him. My advice to you: brush up on social etiquette but don't take it too seriously. you don't have to be well-mannered, but you should know when you're "breaking the rules" as a matter of self-awareness.

                      second thing: think about traits that you consider attractive. not attractive in the "perfect feminine beauty" way, but according to the definition of the word. What personality traits do you like in people? What kinds of things would you like to do with your special lady friend? if you think it would be awesome to date women who are into rock climbing, then you need to get good at that. if you find you don't like rock climbing, well then maybe you don't want to pick that as a "shared interest," ya know? at the same time, if your intent is to find a dating partner, develop hobbies that are socially-oriented because this will get you out in groups of other people in a less-threatening way. Instead of trying to start up a conversation with a girl cold, you can focus on a topic that you already know she's interested in. then the focus is on the topic itself rather than yourself. oh, and when conversing with people, ask interesting questions about them and what they do.

                        No we have to lie to them to have meaningless sex and run away the next morning and never call

                        Meeting people is easy, meeting decent people is just a process of elimination
                        Be yourself and listen to what people have to say.
                        This way if they don't like you - f**k-em there cleary assholes. Plus listening to what they have to say you can work out if they are worth listening to or not, if they are you have treated them with the respect due to a fellow human and that's a good a start to anything you can make, and if they are not they are clearly and asshole - f**k-em

                          That's a good thought. I haven't taken my "new me" out for a spin yet simply because I don't know what to do with myself now. Before I knew my limitations-if I had to run more than a few feet, consider me doomed and done. Now I have all this energy, few limitations, and I'm wondering "what now?" My church used to have a softball team that played during the spring/summer months, maybe I can look into that, see if it's still around. I suppose my local YMCA has some stuff too.

                          I welcome any and all comments, really, I am completely at a loss with women, do to a complete lack of experience with them. What hobbies are socially oriented though? Most of my hobbies are me-oriented; stuff I can do myself and without much hassle from others. I'm totally looking for a dating partner, not a one night stand ect.

                          The advice is appreciated, feel free to offer as much as you want; trust me, I need the help.

                          Yeah, that's pretty much what the internet guides espouse. It's really disturbing and kind of sad that so many guys are just in it for the sex, the thrill, and that's it. I don't like that, I don't roll like that, and frankly I find it repulsing. People should be treated as people, not things to have fun with and then toss aside when you're done.

                              End it all now.

                              Avoid the pain and agony that you're letting yourself in for, do yourself a favor, and just cease to exist.

                              Trust me on this one, you don't know what kind of pain and suffering are in store for you once I release the HellSpores, so you might as well just go as quickly and painlessly as you can...

                              ...OR go spectacularly and do it publicly on video so we can all be entertained! Win-Win!

                              • for guys who are in it just for a roll around the hay, i don't think there's anything wrong with that per se. it's just wrong to give the wrong impression to the other person in the equation. more and more women are okay with that sort of thing. be aware of that when you start dating, too, because you might find yourself on the other side of that equation and get hurt.

                                socially-oriented hobbies? that's going to depend on what's available in your geographic region. what do people like to do? you mentioned a church, that may be a good place to get involved if religion is your thing. unfortunately, it seems that in certain areas, the ONLY way to meet people is at church or through work. in that case, if you have a hard time finding friends, it may be worth it to move to a larger area where there are more interesting things to do.
