Because I will always be a little more into what we are doing than you are. Everyone else will be thinking you are lucky to be dating me, and I will think I am lucky to be dating you.

Because I know how to treat a woman. I'm thoughtful, caring, giving, funny. I don't yell at women. When I date someone they're the only person I get involved with. I won't seek out anyone else. ...

I am kind, considerate, yet reserved
I am likeable, most people like me--that is unless they are so shallow, they only want a "cutie".

I am a really nice person and a good listener, just not for control freaks.

One guy told me I had the total package, body, looks, job, home, personality.

I think:
I am courteous,
accept people as they are,
good communicator
respectful,
honest,
dont play games
I'm not high maintenance

Seriously, why?
Have you ever thought about it?
What do you have to offer?

It kind of baffles me to tell the truth.
The things I once thought were of such value don't seem to figure into the equation at all.
I think it is because I am kind and quick to laugh.
That doesn't seem like much at all.

I thought about this question myself after a lifetime of rejection by women. I'm nearly 35 years old and have never, ever, not even once, successfully asked a woman to go on a date with me. I have dated women, and I have a 13 year old son who I have custody of. The women I went out with asked me out, and with the exception of my son's mother, none continued to date me longer than 3 or 4 weeks (which isn't really long enough to even be considered a relationship). My son's mother is mentally ill, which I think affected her judgment on that.

I actually didn't date for a long time until a couple months ago when a female friend asked me out. I normally say no to anyone who asks me out now, but we were good friends and I thought she would treat me decently, even if we decided it wouldn't work out in the end. I was wrong. Three weeks after we began dating, one of her roomates brought to their house a guy she was friends with. The girl I was with and this guy her roomate knew discovered they'd lived across the street from each other when they were 6 yrs old and the next morning, she emailed me on Facebook to say she didn't want to date me. She made up a lame excuse but I knew what had happened and a couple days later she put him on facebook as her boyfriend. The email she sent was the last I heard from her, so I take that to mean that our long friendship is over. Oh well, lol. If even friends cannot be honest with me, why would a woman I barely know?

I had looked into what it is women want, and what I can actually offer. I did this by researching academic literature; psychologists and sociologists research this stuff quite a lot. I am a grad student working on my MA in History so finding the studies was easy. I also spent a lot of time speaking with female friends, those ex's who still talked to me, and male friends who were more successful. I realized that what I have to offer has no value, at all, to women. Some of the things that are 'wrong' with me I cannot change. I am extremely socially awkward and inexperienced, having been alone with no friends of any kind until very recently. I have little interest in the things I can change, like how much money I have. Money means little to me; I grew up surrounded by money and no love. My family is still wealthy and they are the most miserable, empty people I have ever known. My work, I am a professional artist, gives me meaning in life. I make enough to live and not much more, and don't care. I wouldn't want to live if I had to give that up to get a regular higher paying job. So, I don't date. I can't afford to do so especially knowing that no one will stay with me, and my time is very precious to me. Being a father, student, and self-employed artist is very time consuming.
