Another one of those annoying advice threads, it's long, boring and bitter but I would appreciate any advice and/or comments. First I think a little bit of background information on me is necessary to understand my problem. Back in high school I never really had much of a chance to date, I was in a committed relationship throughout high school until I was cheated on. (Yes I know high school relationships are a joke) After that I was single for about five months then I met this amazing girl (or so I thought) and we we're together for a year and a half, even lived together for three months... before I found out she had cheated on me that is. I'll never be an attractive guy, but at the same time I know I'm not completely repulsive, the only insecurity I have with my appearance is how scrawny i am, so that’s not really a problem for me. I am quite shy before I get to know someone, but I'm working on that as well. I know what my problem is, why I was cheated on both of those times, I am a nice guy and I let people take advantage of me as well as having absoloutly no confidence. I've been told this endless times by my friends. My point in this is I am rather inexperienced in dating; I never really dated either of my two girlfriends because I had known them for a long time before hand. That threw me off anything for quite a while as you can imagine but in the past few months I've decided to try again. Now my current problem... My first date with a girl always goes excellent, we have a good time, we talk a lot and I usually make her laugh quite a bit. At the end of the night we exchange numbers and she tells me she would like to get together again and either says she will call me or asks me to call her. Now this is where the problems start. The first three girls asked me out, the fourth I asked out myself (This is over a period of a few months, not all together) but it was the same situation for all of them, the girl never called me back and if I called her we would have another good conversation and in one case another date, which also went well, but after that I was never contacted again. My question is... are these girls just pretending to be interested in me or am I doing something wrong? I don't understand why someone would lie about this when it serves absolutely no purpose and they gain nothing out of it, it only causes them more annoyance, so why do it? This kind of crap is making me give up hope on people completely, I don't want to accept any dates anymore, I don't even want to talk to new people as friends anymore because they always seem to end up being the same.
