It seems that the most popular solution is online dating. But in order to try it, I have some obstacles.
I don't have the privacy that I would like for my life. As many here, my familiy (parents, both retired & brother who works from home) don't know that I'm LS and that's how I want to keep it. But we live in a small house and they can see almost every damn thing that I do in the computer, so I'm limited to short periods of time online in college or paying in a cybercafe (like I'm doing right now). Also, in the case that I manage to make things right, I couldn't give the woman my number, and my cellphone wouldn't help as long as I just couldn't answer properly if I'm at my house, and I think that it will be suspicious to her if I tell her that she can only call me in the hours that I'm at college. Aslo there is the point that most women want to go to dance to a club or drink to a bar. I'm not very enthusistic about these activities, I don't like the music that people usually dance to (and I don'thave a clue in dancing itself). It would be nice to go to a bar with a rocking band, but the real problem is that I can't afford that, or mostly any other possible activity for a date, because I'm limited to the "son's salary".
And even if I can find an activity that I could afford, I still have my parents on my back, so i'll have to came up with something better than a college work to justify why I'm going out for a couple hours in a weekend night with my best clothes on. You may say "just tell them that you have a date, they'll be glad", but the thing is that I actually don't know what to do in the unlikely case of getting one because my parents are so hypercritical and I just don't thrust my family to talk about these subjects. So far my parents doesn't seem to realize the little fact that I've never had female friend since I was five, and they're not being polite, they annoy me with comments about every damn thing that they think is wrong with me. Actually, I've heard my mom saying a couple times that she thinks that is not wise to have a girlfriend while one is in college because it just will be a distraction, may be she just thinks that I share that damn idea. And my brother may probably think that I'm just a shy nerd that still haven't had luck (BTW, he's an extroverted geek).
In the case of actually having a date I've read that some acohol may help one to loosen up (just that, not getting totally wasted); that's not my case, I've gotten completly drunk a couple time and my behavior doesn't change at all (of course, I loose my motor functions); actually I may get even more quiet.
The other proposal that I've readed (I wouldn't call it a solution) is to pay hookers to loosen up with woman and gain sexual experiece. Seems reasonable, but I just can't afford a decent hooker (and even many indecent), and for some reason I still have a voice in my head saying that there's something moraly wrong there (then I wonder why I dont have problems with porn, I mean, it's also sex for money). At the end it probably is the fear of being caught in this society with double moral (not for legal reasons, it's legal in my city).
I think that I should mention that I've never been even in the friendzone, wich actually seems like a problem less to be solved. And about meeting women in my college, well in the Engineering faculty there are like two girls (topps) for each 30-40 man in every class, and of course all the interesting ones already have a boyfriend. The only place that seems reasonable for me to meet women is in the libraries, but of course, start a conversation with a stranger it's impossible for me by now.
The only thing that by now I see that I could do is to work out in the college's gym now that I finally have time for that.
A few things to finish: I do not belive that looks are the key, but it certainly helps, same for the money. And I don't belive that stuff of "think good things and good things will happen", I believe more in "work really fraggin' hard and good things may happen."
So, after all this liberating chit-chat, what do you people have to say?
"For my part I distrust all generalizations about women, favourable and unfavourable, masculine and feminine, ancient and modern; all alike, I should say, result from paucity of experience"
