I've been wondering - where does a young guy such as myself (geeky quiet type) find a woman these days?
The conventional pubs/clubs pickup central doesn't really apply unless you want a loud boisterously-social preppy girl, which is basically the opposite of what I want.
i feel you on the distaste for the club chick.
if you want to 'pick up' strangers, learn some day game and head to more intellectual venues like bookstores or coffee shops, if you like the SWPL breed of woman.
Sounds good so far SA, but how exactly does one converse with a complete stranger in a bookstore or coffee shop?
In most western countries (for example, Australia, my home country) they would likely freak out that their personal space was being invaded...
Well you have to have a sensible reason to talk to them, some common ground, you can't just walk up and start a conversation with them out of the clear blue.
Don't look for love, and love will find you...so they say. But what they don't say is that in order for this to happen you have to get yourself out there, do things, meet lots of people.
That phrase is as logical as: "Don't look for clean air, and clean air will find you."
