    Maybe your just ugly. :)

    Or

    You just dont know how to talk to women.

    Either way facebook is not your problem. I agree that facebook sucks but it I dont connect how it would affect any kind of real world situation.

    thats what i mean

    35 year old virgins who would never go up to a girl in a club are having a field day on facebook.

    girls, nowadays, are desensitized to getting picked-up . they have all these loser guys annoying them online. before, i would get rejected but they would be flattered. now, they just feel annoyed.

    its not like the old days. i'd wake up, go get coffee and come back with 5 leads.


    or maybe the real reason is i m just getting old and ugly.

    For me, things are easier. I think people are more open. When I was younger, your older brother needed to date the person's older sister to get in the door. You had to be in a clique where people pass each other around. Wierd.

    Make a comment even partially regarding sexuality, like, "Yeah, she is cute." and it was you facing some ***** a few days later with stuff like, "Do I know you? You don't know me. What are you talking **** about me for. I have a boyfriend, ok. " In the last 8 years, you get, "Hey, hows it going?"

    One thing I do different is I don't hang out with other guys often. I think guys cramp your style with girls. I know guys get jealous and try to talk **** about their friend to do them in. Guys are more girly than girls sometimes. If you are having trouble with girls, see if you have some so-called friend cramping your style.

    So does this mean you were picking them up with no problem before facebook?

    It was launched in 2004. So this means you must have had game back in 2003.

    Where did you live? I have never had that experience. I had the entire different groups thing but never to the point that someone would be argumentative or aggressive for being called cute.

    I think every guy has been there. When your friend throws you under the bus when you like the same girl. I had to punch a friend in the face once over stupid crap like that once. It was pretty funny when years later I someone mentioned the girl and I didnt even remember her name and my friend had to remind me that it was the one that got him punched in the face. :)

    got a lead tonite


    i was delivering the usual crap. but she was usually friendly.

    checked her email. no facebook. go figure. i know it was only a coincidence.


    but while i was getting that lead. i miss out on a better one. i m kicking myself. too slow.

    thats always a tough decision. do you abandon the one that will likely close for the one that is likely to crash and burn?

    I think it was a valid question following the logic of your thread title.

    If it is harder now with facebook it must have been easier for you before.

    Were you even old enough to have game in the prefacebook days?

    So they are doing that because it's harder to find women to date?
    Me thinks, it's a business decision and we have no idea why they do what they do.

    Me thinks they are making a big mistake. Facebook's potential and applications are still unknown. There are countries that ban it, and look at what happened in Egypt. A revolution was started and controlled via Facebook.
    What will they think of next? Technology is like most anything else, a tool. It can be used and abused.
    If one knows how to exploit it, the possibilities are endless.

    Nice to meet you. In an odd way really... I should let you know in advance that i am ok with meeting new people but am not looking to date. So i just want to make that clear upfront.


    her response..........cut bait or keep digging? i was clear with my intentions.

    It's comments like some of the above that make me feel good: I have good, old-fashioned people skills---and they become more effective and more valuable the more social morons there are out there.

    You just don't. It's a war you want to win, namely a date, right? Who else is the enemy?

    dude

    mind games are such a waste of time

    plenty of fish. cut bait and move on to the next one. if they engage in mind game, your time is better spent on someone else.

    look at my earlier post . see her reply. what would you do?

    i couldnt tell you. i know nothing about her. in terms of apperance, she is not different than the girl i met today.

    however, she is usually friendly. but experience has taught me overly friendly is not necesary a good sign.

    Not for us. We could learn a lot from someone with your background.

    A college degree AND you passed a certification exam? You probably like so totally run Goldman I bet dude. Killer.

    But in all seriousness, reading your posts is always entertaining. I would love to see you "operate" in person some day. I'm sure it would be a treat on so many levels.
