I know, this is the most redundant post ever. And so this concept of giving up haunts me. I've been on like 2 dates with someone I knew from college since I've been here, and that didn't really count since I knew them before. Good luck! You not only have to let your personality show but you also have to realize women have distinct personalities, too.
I don't have a huge network of friends like I did back home, so meeting a friend's friend is a limited option.
They think I have given up. So while some started sporting rings, my still-single friends and I doubled down on dating. In many ways, that uncertainty is a gift. Post a comment! Before posting, consider whether you're providing useful information. That saves you time and weeds out the girls that everyone talks about - the ones who are just "looking for attention" or not really into you. A few days ago a guy started a conversation with me by talking about how slow elevators are in this building, previous to that it was a guy asking for directions.
