... is it just me, or is it difficult to find a nice lady friend? Embarrassingly, I'm 26 and have never had a girlfriend. Now, don't worry, this isn't going to get all weird and turn into "I'm coming out thread"... I am straight. I don't know if it is something I am doing wrong, am I looking in the wrong places, or am I hideously ugly... it just seems to be quite difficult (for me at least) to achieve this goal. I find it quite easy to make friends with the fairer sex... I can hold conversation, joke around, etc... but I just haven't clicked with anyone yet. Another thing that scares me is that a lot of guys I know are always telling me "You don't want a girlfriend" and relate their girlfriend horror stories to me quite often. Perhaps it's because I'm too nice. Or maybe that I am capable of identifying a potential candidate, and just never ask. I don't go out to clubs or anything, so I guess I'm rather limited in meeting people in that space. But I would have thought by now I might have met at least one person, even if it didn't work out. Anyone else have this problem, or is it just me that's the leper?
