I’m Not Very Good at Dating

So. I’ve been stood up on dates twice in the last week. By two different people. There was never any real explanation, or apology, and they both did this thing where they just stopped communicating with me just before the date.

Ladies out there: why do so many of you insist on having a man, and talk about how lonely you are, if you’re going to do things like this? I’m not saying this goes for every one of you, or even many of you at all. It’s just odd that I happened to stumble across this twice in a week.

This is really kind of a bummer. It was only recently that I decided to even bother trying again, and this seems to be happening a lot. Is it me? Am I doing something that scares people off before I arrive?

All of my female friends that are dating reassure me that I should totally find myself a “good girl”, but I’m so clueless as to where to start, I don’t think it’ll be happening sometime soon.

Finding people has always been sorta hard for me. I was kind of a loner during high school, and I’m still relatively shy, with my own anxiety and baggage that I carry around with me.

How do I fix this?
