Alright, I've got a problem...actually my friends got a problem...you see my friend doesnt get along with people...more specifically girls, up until this year most girls have found him unbelivably annoying. However, this year he turned over a new leaf and many people started to tolerate him.
My bestfriend's like your friend there. He likes to ignore people especially girls. He's also shy that just even looking at a girl is impossible for him. I tried every way to help him at least talk with his crushes but to no avail. Then after 24 years of him being single, he met this girl at a certain website and courted her accidentally online, took only 3 days I believe (weird, he attracts girl, it's just that he avoids them, then finally). They met in real life, she devirginized him a few days after their meeting and so far it's going OK between them even if it's a long-distance relationship.
