Holding back

Today I got the distinct impression that one of the big problems these days is that everyone holds back.

I hold back when someone shows interest and I'm not that interested. I keep talking to others and I keep seeing them hold back.

I'm not making it for going on a date this week. Tomorrow is the end of the 7 days I declared and I have gone on no date. When I want to ask someone new out, I hold back, lest I scare them off.

Last week I tried asking someone out and she declared herself busy all this week. This resulted in the general cooling I notice from many of the women I try to ask out. Holding back...

When I meet new people I find I have little to say to make conversation. So I say nothing. Holding back...

I think the next thing I need to work on is not holding back. I can't expect others to improve on this until I stop holding back.

Not looking good

A few days I said I would go on a date within 7 days. The first attempt failed with a one week deferral. Said deferral may become permanent anyway so I have still been looking for another date.

I'm not sure what my problem is, but I just don't think I'm making good use of my time when it comes to meeting people. I went to ward prayer Sunday night and didn't even meet anyone new.

We'll see how I do tonight, but it's just not looking so good for me making it on a date this week.

It doesn't help that I'm not super motivated.

Dating game theory

This week I decided to bring in Dr. Nash an expert in game theory.

Non-Dating adventures is right

I finally got a chance to read Bob's last post about our conversation a month ago. The really sad part is that I can't think of any dates I've been on in the last 2 months.

I have no idea how that time creeps up like that, but it did. That said, I will go on a date within 7 days. I recently decided I needed to take dating more seriously so I promptly didn't go on any non-serious dates. Or any dates at all...

I'm not sure that's how that was supposed to work.


PS. If I don't have a date in 7 days I promise to make a posting of shame.
