Lately ive been quite happy being alone, but still desiring some company. Ive turned to online dating a few times but lately its been quite hard. Maybe i havent/dont know how to talk to girls but it feels like every opening i do tends to just scare away anyone.
For example one coversation went like:
“Hey ** are you new to sydney huh?”
“Hey yeah i am, came from ***”
“Nice! what brought you into syd?”
“Just family, my whole family live in syd”
“oh i see! So what do you usually get up to around here? Uni/work?”
And the conversation ends there
Another conversation i had on tinder went like
“Hi *** hows your day?”
“Hi Alan, pretty good, how was yours? Whats your blood type?”
“Mine is B+, pretty common for most asians, how about you?”
Is it me? Do i have to go straight to asking for a number or am i just chatting up the wrong way?
some ideas i thought might contribute to the reason were
- Im asian. One of the most statistically significant unattractive races out there.
- Im not very interesting [I dont have an outstanding hobby or skill i vouch on]
- My conversational style sounds like an interview/coversation with your teacher on parent teacher night
I think i have to take a risk and maybe just give a girl my number and hopes she calls me. (realistically though, i dont see that as being very successful)
