It seems to me the dating process is similar to job hunting in that there are numerous setbacks before success, and a lot of resilience and patience involved. It's also not as simple as just being a decent person and ok looking.

I've been dumped twice but never been rejected. Of the four women I've asked out all said yes. Granted I work them down to the point any other answer is unacceptable and I've probably missed out on a lot of other relationships because I've mistakenly believed they weren't interested and didn't ask for fear.

By my calculations, it is close to a million if you're not rich, famous and/or 10/10. If these don't apply to you then I'm sorry mate but no fish is gonna want your bait.

If you're one ugly mother****er, your rejection rate increases exponentially. Applicable for both genders.

The fact that you treat relationships with such disdain is worrying. There is something profoundly wrong with you. If you're narurally charming/ a minimum nice you wouldn't be asking this question

Depends if you're asking out random girls lol.


For me it's zero because I don't spend any time doing that. I just live my life and let relationships form naturally with people I meet.

The answer to that question depends on so many factors that it is imppssible to calculate. For me though the answer will be zero, because I never have approached somebody and never will until I am certain the outcome will be the desired one. Unless just trying to tell someone she was pretty (got shut down before I was able to), and nothing more, counts as an approach.

Some will get lucky on the first try. Some may be rejected continuously.

I think it's quite high unless you're playing in the premier league. Also since most guys want to play a bit above their league.
