    Find bpohl a girlfriend!!

    Okay, so there's been something I've been noticing lately. All of the other guys are getting all of the girls. I find this quite troubling, as I think I'm at least somewhat of a catch. I'm 28, have a good job, own a house, own a car, and am pretty responsible. I'm not super attractive, but I don't think I'm horrible looking, either. I've been okay with being single the past couple years, but it's getting to me more these days. I'm not desperate (maybe a little lonely); I just kinda feel like, at 28 years old, it's really time to be doing the things I always pictured myself doing by this age. The girls I've met in the past year so just never seem to hold my interest. I know all of you have to know at least one girl around my age who would knock my socks off. Let's see them...

    I'm now available for any questions.

    You just described me. Except for the attractive part. I am super attractive. And I am single. And I am okay with it.

    I was just trying to be somewhat modest. Jeez.

    I don't know... I've been intensely okay with it for the past couple years, but I still have yet to meet a girl with whom I think I could spend any length of time.

    I know the feeling. Modesty will likely get you farther than my post.

    Well, you have the rest of your life to figure out who you want to spend... the rest of your life with. Take your time! It does suck being lonely, though--I'm with ya there.

    Snowy just posted a very similar thread about a week ago. Maybe you need to take a trip to Colorado and go riding (bike riding) with Snowy.

    This is assuming you are ok with slightly older women and she is ok with slightly younger men. She's like 3 or 4 years older than you I think.

    this thread is the reason Al Gore won a nobel prize for inventing internet p0rn.

    the inconvenient truth is that you need to go to Vegas and hang outside the pepperment rhino for the worked up womin that come out primed for action.

    no need to thank me for the advise. your welcome.

    I just buy another pinball machine. I figure I can wait until I'm rich, then get a young chick that just wants me for my money. Since my net worth is about $200,000, I figure I have another 20 years before I need to worry about this. Bigger house, another pinball machine.

    Be confident. That's the most sought after quality a girl looks for ( or so i'm told). I know you were being modest, but don't sell yourself short either. Don't use what you have as a selling point. Any girl that goes after you for those things, you don't want to be with long term anyway. What i've learned in life, is this. I'm the same person to everyone, I never try to be someone else. Now, sometimes a girl I liked didn't like what she was seeing, and it backfired, but the flip side is , is that some girls I never thought i had shot with liked who I was. So just go with the flow, be yourself always, and things just tend to happen.

    See, you guys have it all wrong... Finding women has not been a problem. I'm not bragging, but getting a woman to "come back to my place" has been pretty easy. The problem is that I just never want them around very long. I have yet to find one who is that perfect mixture of sweet, thoughtful, fun, smart, and sexy... or even quite close to it. Honestly, all of the reasons why I stated above that I think I'm a catch are the reasons why I've been attracting them, but they just don't seem to be what I would consider relationship material. And, it's strange... I WANT a relationship... I want to be exclusive, committed, etc... I'm just not going to settle for someone who just happens to like me. I want a woman who can hold an intelligent conversation, yet be able to laugh at herself and act silly. I'm just not finding it. Maybe I should just learn to enjoy being single and not worry about it.

    If you don't keep them around very long, then you can't judge how sweet, funny, intelligent, etc. they are. It takes a while for most people to get to know me... some have the wrong idea right off the bat. Give the next one a shot. You might be surprised.
