Let me explain myself .. I am a 28 year old male who has never (I mean NEVER) had a true old fashion boyfriend/girlfriend relationship.In fact I never got "dates".. Yeah i have talked to girls. The closest female companionship i ever had was when i was in high school .i was hooked up as you say to a girl in class.Never really went on a actual date.. It was more like dating on school ground i guess.If you call it that ..We walked eachother to classes ,even sneaked in to the stair way a couple times along the way to classes to hug and playfully kiss. She was the first girl i actually ever kissed. Never dated out of school (lame i know ) We had no way to get together anyways other then being at school. Track forward.... I try to get to know girls from my various jobs over the years and all have failed .. I didn't even get dates .Til this last job i was at i met this beautiful petite girl who has a baby boy. I kept my interest to my self til i accidently told another co-worker my interest in said person.Thus we began talking and finally went out .We met up at a store and i followed her to a "country bar" i guess it was.It was horrible not exactly what i pictured as a first date... i made a fool of my self bringing a dozen roses to her.I thought that would be something GOOD but she said omg im glad you didn't give these to me in there... I was like why? She gave me a story how she never got roses from anyone but her baby's daddy . And she said something about being embarassed if i did give her the roses in side the place.As this was her weekly hang out with her friends .And her friends were there .. I was sooo out of place. I know im boring you all with my jibber jabber . But what it boils down to is that i have no relationship skills, Communitication skills with girls.. i was raised by my mother so i guess i don't have all the knowledge that can construct a relationship . Is there any type of forums that help ppl who are looking for love ,romance ,relationships ? I guess starting a relationship isn't something you learn from a message board it something you have to learn from the school of hard knocks.I just realised that im 28 years old and I don't have anyone to spend time with.. the clocks tickin - if I Don't find anyone in 20 years ( yeah i know harsh but its what i figure) I'll never be married or have kids.. Any questions you might have feel free to post or pm em to me . Thanks for taking the time to read this boring long post. Michael.
