You know what the common denominator is in all of these super dorks, and it's been mentioned before...they all have soft, feminine features by and large. Testosterone deficiency in all of them. I remember nerds back in school being the same way.
Honestly I wouldn't date a woman who ate well done steak. Being compatible with little things like that are more important than you think.
One of the bonds and commonalities I share with my girlfriend is the fact we like the same kinds of foods and often end up ordering the same thing. She's from a family who used to cook for important social events and is a great cook herself, which anyone would find an attractive trait...anyone who eats well done steak is a moron with childlike tastes in food.
Clearly you don't want to be left alone because you're asking about dating.
Do what everyone else does and meet someone online.
Unless you live in the mountains of bumfuck China, there's a restaurant or other activity going on in a 50 mile radius of where you live. That's where people go on dates, it doesn't require some arcane knowledge.
It shouldn't be humiliating at all, that's absurd. It might be awkward at first, yes, but that can go for any two people.
Personally I've only ever dated women I know from mutual friends or social activities so I've never had an awkward date per se, I already knew I was compatible with them and already familiar with them before we've even went out.
If you've never been on a date before now is the time to start, it's not going to be any less intimidating to you if you wait until you're 45 and ultra desperate or something. It's really not a big deal...find someone you're interested in, find something fun you both want to do for an hour or two, and go do it, be it food or some other activity.
Yes, she might not want to see you again, but that's all part of the game, go find another one.
The woman I'm currently dating (who, again, we already knew each other) spent the better part of a day, around 10 hours together on our first "date" earlier this year...completely fun, time flew past...and we've been going out ever since, and I'm never less excited to see her than I was when we first started. It's been totally organic and didn't require much thought or worry.
Er, yeah...maybe the first date or two. After you get into "dating" someone, if you're compatible with them, it should be fun and relaxing and something you look forward to. Do you think that's how it is even after you get to know someone? It's not.
Being friends with someone, sharing experiences, being able to care for someone and they for you, holding hands, kissing, having sex...someone to say hi to in the morning, at night, someone to tell you that they're thinking about you...I could go on and on.
Yes, it's fucking horrible.
Seriously, what's your question?
Of course it's worth it...and there's no reason you shouldn't be having sex too in a committed relationship. And yes, it's very worth it even if you're not having sex with her yet. It's all part of the fun.
I've posted pictures of about $15,000 worth of guns over the years. Not video game ones.
I'll say it again:
I wish Mitch still posted here, he probably knows more about guns than anyone else here ever has, and he didn't spend time making fucktarded arguments about them, because he knew what he was talking about.
