    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.

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.
    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.

    If I do end up ending it all, I will do is spectacularly and publicly, and rack up those youtube hits...but I don't think it'll come to that

    No, I'm a glutton for punishment, so I'll probably just keep coming back for more, lol.

    Uh...social things in my area?

    I'm in the middle of Alabama. Socially, it's church, college football, and work pretty much. College football season is over (wasn't around for that anyway), and Church is kind of a dead zone; we have our fair share of people in my age group, problem is they're already taken so to speak.

    I got plenty of friends that could serve as some sort of intermediate but they're social circles are wide and far more varied than mine; I suppose I'll have to expand my comfort zone otherwise I'll be stuck with nothing.

    23, going on 24 in October (which seems far away but really isn't). I'm near Montgomery (for some reason the capitol of this state) and there are plenty of clubs and stuff there...but I'm not much of a clubber type. Then again, life is all about new experiences...*shrugs*

    i could be wrong, but it seems like clubs aren't the best places to find women anyway. are you in college? out of college? what do you do for a living? these are sort of rhetorical questions, but good places to start when you're thinking about expanding your social circles. you have friends, what do you do with them? are there women among them? women are just people with vaginas, so don't be so afraid.
