Do you think maybe you are meeting the wrong type of girls? It sounds like all they want is a fun night and no strings. Where do you meet these girls at? Also there are a lot of girls that are afraid to give their real number especially if they don't know the guy very well.

Just be patient, the right one will come along when you are least expecting it.

I agree with Getting by, and she is so right on the right one coming along when you least expect it.

What about joining some type of club that would get you out of the house and with a group of people that share your interests?

Hi there,

hy has given you a great piece of advice there... Joining a club or society is a great way to socialise etc. It could be a sport that you are good at (For example: Tennis or Football/Soccer) it could be a game that you play (For example: Chess or War-Gaming) or it could be centred on a hobby (For example: A collection such as stamps or making something such as match-stick models).

Scotty:  I particularly like Darren's advice about joining a club or society and just naturally see where it goes (in fact, this is something that I will also considering doing).  Also, as another thought for you to ponder, I am wondering if there is any possibility that you are moving too quickly to meet someone else?  Have you finished your "grieving" period?  If yes, that's great.  If no-perhaps you are trying to meet someone to quickly instead of dealing with your feelings first.--And if I am way off base with this thought, I do apologize.

Also, perhaps you could be trying too hard or coming off that way.  Others tend to sense these things.  I guess I'm saying that I think Darren's advice is excellent.  Just slow things down a bit and when it's meant to be it will happen. 

Good luck!
