    I don't drink so I don't go clubbing. I never chat people up at work in fear of a lifetime of embarrasment.
    I just keep going to dating sites and the chat fades after a few messages or say i send out 600 messages to get 10 replies then it fades.

    Are girls on dating sites just too picky. I mean what can I do instead? Go out, but i can't just stand outside trying to talk to people. I get on well with people when I do have a job but I'm temping all the time.

    Good ones seem to be taken way back.

    You don't have to chat people up at work, if you get on with them ask them to go for a drink sometime, maybe as a group of people from the same workplace to begin with. Also, when you go out for a drink it doesn't have to be alcoholic, you shouldn't let things like this get in the way of you meeting new people. Plenty of people don't drink but they will still go out clubbing. Are you on dating sites that try and match you up with people who have similar interests to you? If you're not then maybe you should try one of these and you might get more replies. Hope this helps

    Thanks I've come to the conclusion that most girls want bad men who treat them badly at least here anyway.

    One thing that happened when I tried at work once: this girl I started talking to about who walks down 7 floors on her lunch, i said like that's good and i kept saying hi when i saw her and did small talk.
    I then gave her some chocolate, that put her off straight away.
    Another week I see a girl crying with her supervisor and I give her some water and she comes to me later with a cupcake, we're still friends.

    Sometimes we do strange things, it's only love at first sight if you overcome their strict criteria at least online anyway lol.
