and
4) an introvert

All but (3) can be counteracted by a healthy dose of confidence. Even hick towns have dance clubs though - but instead of playing bump & grind music, they'll play two-step or line dances. Learn a simple line dance and get out there for a round or two.

If you can swing dance, you can swing dance to anything with the proper rhythm. Much like the waltz just requires something in 3/3 time. And I'd wager dollars to donuts that if you can swing dance, you can pick up just about anyone who's out dancing.

if we do have any where that the music isnt just karaoke...i have yet to hear about them

and being shy and introverted, i tend to only dance either with someone i know or someone who asks me...yes i know i am pathetic to those of you who are more extroverted and outgoing
lowish self esteem and confidence dont help

So karaoke. People are generally too drunk to really notice how bad your singing is, or they've grown somewhat immune to frog croaking noises, but getting up on stage to perform on karaoke night serves the same purpose as getting out on the dance floor at a dance club.

Well, that's up to you, but I believe the saying is something like, "Pride makes a cold bedfellow."

Me, I'm happy to terrorize my guild officers, so I'll keep my dignity.

Sab/BLD,

Most of my friends met people online or at places like the Supermarket, about 2 out of 20 of us met our other halves at bars.

My advice, join a dating site, it worked for a lot of my friends and its way easier to chat to people online before you meet them as you can establish if your interests are the same, if there is comfortable common ground and if they are local to you.

Other than that just,

a/ be truthful
b/ be yourself
c/ be considerate of what you want and what your date wants
d/ don't be a cock

I was in exactly the same boat as you Sab/BLD and it all worked out funky badger. There is no reason it cannot for you.

Ami, you still rock.

In order for me to karaoke, one of the following statements has to be true:

Either I am too hammered to give a shit that I'm singing poorly,

-or-

Everyone else in the room is too hammered to give a shit that I'm singing poorly.
- I'm not Jesus, but I can turn water into Kool-Aid.
- A Sergeant in motion outranks an officer who doesn't know what the hell is going on.

Well the secret of fire does have a 100% success rate I guess.

I feel that the world has changed though and that technique might not be as successful thesedays as when I employed it to good effect.

Thesedays I would probably go with 'For most things in life there is Mastercard, for everything else there is rohypnol'.

Snake is better at current day things than me, dating used to be easy, as you get older it gets harder as everyone has more baggage to deal with I guess.

Sab/BLD get yourself on dating sites, at least you are putting yourselves out there then?

I forgot another golden rule, never ever ever ever be needy. That shit is the door to rejection and heartbreak.

Do something about it then.

Last summer at the Paralympics I saw a guy with 1 leg jump over a 2m high jump from a standing start. That tells me there is no such thing as can't.

Where there is a will there is a way.

Better? I'm just lucky, and happen to find someone that understands my nerdier jokes and makes even worse ones.

OK Cupid is a bad name for a dating site. Not exactly setting your users up with great expectations with just being OK. I'm going to start up 35andtimetosettle.com.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

What's scary about that? Reading the same style of profile over and over is dull.

Sabin,

Let me tell you something man to man with no bullshit. Everytime I read one of your posts it reminds I am reading the post of someone who is articulate, intelligent and who has a good sense of humour.

Just treat the profile creation as a post on a forum. You just have to have the same belief in yourself we have in you.

Bara.

My brother posted a pic of his kid some time ago, and I knew it needed to be captioned, but I couldn't come up with anything that I was satisfied with.

My daughter was born 2 weeks ago. Today she was crying at Target, and I said "keep crying, use up that energy so you don't cry tonight." My wife said "Don't say that, she'll accept that challenge." I knew then how to caption my nephew's pic...
