    You know what's some number one bullshit?

    I was at the store a few months ago and this dude approaches me and asks about my sneakers (custom painted airmax 90s by me) and we start talking about stuff and he seems like a nice guy.

    So after a while he says, hey man i better hurry up and get outta here before my wife asks where i been. And we exchange numbers, and agree to watch a game sometime...

    I get a call from him a week later asking if i wanna hear him out on a business opportunity... it turns out it's FUCKING amway. He said if we aren't interested after the presentation it wouldn't change anything and we could stil be friends.

    Of course i wasn't interested, he never texted or called and we never hung out.

    Fucking deceiving bastard!

    Martial arts a a great place to start.

    You will naturally just become friends with training partners.

    Throw out an invite, if they are interested they may come. If not, f**k it, just go out by yourself!

    I usually go to “meetups” and there are usually plenty of other people there that are also out by themselves.

    I often prefer to go out by myself. Some people just don’t know how to be a good wingman.

    Join some kind of group. Like a church group or AA (if you're an Alky) or take up ballroom dancing, or some other thing where people gather who have similar interests. You gotta be around them before you can ask them out. ;)

    How old are you?

    Is it normal now for people to not have friends? So weird.
    I have lived in lots of different places and always end up meeting people and making new friends.


    If you can't simply be better looking and cooler, maybe try picking up girls and getting to know their circle of friends- there's your in.
    Afterwards, move on and repeat.

    Vast majority of pretty girls don't want to date a guy with no friends

    Do you work with a team at your job? See if they'd be interested in doing a happy hour after work some day

    More than likely a man who views hanging out with people as a chore rather than a pleasurable experience doesn't want a woman. If you don't even care to have friends why the hell would you want a woman?

    You gotta do activities.

    [​IMG]

    For real though, as you get too old to be going out partying, you meet people by doing activities e.g. martial arts, yoga, book clubs - whatever the fuck you're interested in, there's probably some organisation you can join.

    It's pretty common for people to use these things as a social outlet, so they can be pretty tight little communities.

    I guess so. I enjoy the fuck out of my free time and haven't dated anybody in 3 years. I still go out and get pussy though. I'm sure he does too.
