I'm reluctant to ask this question for several reasons - When people ask questions like this online most of the answers range from useless (just be yourself) to both stupid and useless (all the examples that come to mind would instantly derail the thread). - I've learned a lot more about girls from real life than posts online. - My friends who do get laid tell me my social skills are up to the job. I believe them and just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't happen. But with that said, I have never had a girlfriend before and you do find some useful pieces of information in threads like these.
