    Hi Azzdog,

    You say that "no one cares"... That is a bit of an absolute don't you think? I am sure that you friends and people here care about you.

    You have said that people and females have said that you are funny etc. Now I will guess that your first date would be just you and the other person. Have you consider making it a double date, so that your friend and their partner, and you and your date can say have dinner together? The benefit of that would be that your friends might be able to give you feedback later on?

    And Paul is right... the first few dates are always nervous. And probably for both people, as they learn or find out about the other person and whether they might be compatible or not.

    Lastly, it sounds like you had a date recently? There used to be a show called First Dates or something like that. The number of couples on that show that made it were very low. And from the little I have read, given you latest posts, getting to date #2 is very low. So you are doing nothing wrong. I know that won't ease your pain, but what is happening to you, also happens to many other people. :(
