I live in Tampa, Florida I need some advice on where to find women and how I should approach them. I have tried several times to find a girlfriend. I have approached several women I try to start a conversation, they talk to me for a few minutes and the lose interest and I never seem to make a connection. What am I doing wrong, I cant seem to find someone to be with no matter what I try. I even watch Youtube for advice but I doesn’t seem to help. Can anyone give me some advice on what I should do?

I was in your shoes in my early 20’s until I hit the age of 25. A reason many many women and men have such a hard time is well they are more inflexible then they think. I was very inflexible and that’s why I wasn’t getting dates. For example sticking to only dating what you think is “your type”. Going after looks too much. Thinking too much of this will never work out instead of lets try anyway and if it doesn’t work out so be it. I had a previous marriage that ended up lasting a few years and from the get go I never thought it would last simply due to the woman being older than me, the marriage lasted 5 years and I have no regrets I am glad I had the marriage and the great times even though it did end up in divorce.
I opened up to going after women who were not my type, women who did not have the looks I idealized for, women who were older and younger then me, women with drug problems, women with children, women with previous mental health problems like depression. Then I got dates.

The more you bother yourself to find a girlfriend, the harder it will be. Those things are supposed to go naturally and if it clicks, that’s it.
I am not saying for you not to talk to girls or try to find the one, but don’t lose hope if you couldn’t get couple of girl’s attention. Whenever you talk with a girl, try to be as funny as possible, but don’t forget about the eye contact.

There are so many variables i think you should get a dating coach.

I appreciate everyone’s feed back. I don’t think I need to lower my standards I have had a girlfriends in the past that were beautiful. If I’m not attracted to the person the relationship may not work out. The advice I’m looking for is tips and pointers from people on how to get a females to want to date you, and where I might be able to find potential dates. I don’t have anyone to really go out with so when I go places I go alone and it is difficult to just walk up and join someone’s group. I’m just having a hard time I feel like I have no life and when I try to connect with people I cant. I’m feeling lonely and starting to become depressed. I just wish I could be more social and have a life instead of just existing.
