I have had a pretty good day so far. Work has been going well and I think my focus is improving as well.

Had a pretty good day today, but I couldn't get to work because some jackass parked right behind me so I couldn't leave. I had Thursday off so I just called my work and they said they'd switch today for Thursday, so I got the day off which is nice, but irritating that someone would do that.

Well I asked out this girl from my work for coffee today, she said she'd be down. I'll probably see if she's down for it in a couple days.

Get to chill and watch some football today, next week I've gotta go balls to the wall though so I can get to where I want to. Really need to work hard this next week.

Asked another girl out for coffee, she already had a boyfriend though, ughhh. This sucks lol. Oh well, at least my self-confidence is rising from getting rejected over and over again, pretty soon, it will be cake.

Definitely! It isn't really about getting her number or dates or whatever, if that happens, it's great, but it's about improving YOUR self-confidence and making it so YOU are better at talking to girls, anf if she says no or is rude about it, it's her loss anyways.

I asked out a couple girls that I work with today, buuuttt both of them had boyfriends, damn it's been tough lately with talking to the ladies. I'm so awkward and nervous, I hate it honestly.

Don't ask out girls you work with! You don't want to make things weird. Maybe you should go to a bar or something, so you can talk to bunches of girls with very little repercussion?

Maybe it's just me, but when I go to bars I almost feel like a different person, able to talk to people without feeling awkward because it seems like everything is acceptable there. Maybe that's just because I'm drinking lol. But seriously, it's cool.

Anyways, I hope you didn't make things weird with your coworkers. I (personally) don't mind the awkward tension, lol I kind of like it actually, but most people don't. I always enjoy when your posts though, so I wish you the best.

Yeah man, it's way weird, I think you're right, it's not a very laid back environment where a lot of things are socially acceptable, I'll probably go to some bars or something like you said.

Had a decent day yesterday I suppose, I'm just eager to go out in the city on the weekend and find some people/girls to meet and talk to, I used to think it was socially awkward to meet people who you don't see on a regular basis, but I now see that the world is a simple place where any two people can meet and talk, despite what I may have learned from my past or what the media or my parents told me. There's definitely a lot of shaming today for expressing your wants and desires, which I personally think is bullshit, but whatever I guess, not everyone/everything is like that.

The bar idea may not have been the best idea lol, I don't want to encourage you to be a heavy drinker... Maybe you could join some clubs and meet some girls that way. <--But the bad thing about that is you don't want to be known as the guy that hits on all the girls in the club. Yeah... I don't really know what you should do

Meetup.com!
Lots of groups, and they all make individual events, which there's never any obligation to go to any of them even if you've joined a group. Lots are based on common interests but some are actually done with the specific purpose of meeting other single people. It can be hit or miss, sometimes you go to one that's a total sausagefest, even if it was a "meet other singles" night, but making new guy friends is always good too. Heck, unless it's a "speed dating" event, I typically like to talk to the guys first and then engage a chick if there's one free. It really makes me feel like I'm genuinely just there to have fun, and if I happen to meet a new potential match there too, then great.

Thanks for the advice guys, I think I just need to experiment with different scenarios and see what works best for me. Can't hurt.

Had kind of a shitty day yesterday, everything seemed to go wrong and I wasn't sure what to do or how to stop messing up, but that's life, there are bad days and there are good days.

Had a pretty amazing day yesterday, asked out 3 different girls, they all had boyfriends but I couldn't care less because it's becoming easier and easier to walk up to girls and ask them out. I also visited my friend who works at a brewery and bought some beer, plus he gave me a bunch of free apparel. Plus I didn't have to work and got to sleep a little longer than usual, so that was nice.
