I'm 26, almost 27, and still have a very hard time just getting girls to even talk to me. I am a member of both Christian Mingle and match.com. Been a member of Mingle for a year and a half and match for a month. In that time I have met up with one girl just one time. She went on to get engaged to another guy 3 months later. Other than that, only a few girls have even replied to emails. The vast majority just don't reply. Outside world situations aren't much better. I'm on the shy side so it's tougher there, but I do try to meet girls and they never seem interested. I know I am likable, funny, good-looking, loyal, caring, and driven, I'm starting to believe that girls think I don't have my life together. Like I said I am 26. I am working on my bachelor's in Marketing so I don't have a degree. I do work very hard in school and do well. I work at a gas station full-time. I'll admit it's not the most glamorous job, but it does pay the bills and I make enough to support myself and have money left over. I don't plan on working there forever unless I can get a job in the company's marketing division. I want to go to a marketing firm somewhere. Preferably before I graduate. I should be graduating in 1 1/2 - 2 years. I also live in a house with friends. I don't own the home meaning I'm one of the renters. I know this makes me sound like I am making myself the victim. It's my own fault I am still in school, but I really have matured in the last few year and am now taking steps to further myself. Just doing the best with what I've been given. Anyway, I think girls see where I am in life and just assume that I have no drive or ambition. While I can understand that, this is not the case. When I was in my late teens and early 20's sure, but like I mentioned, I have goals and am working toward them. It is just going to take some time and patience. I could be wrong, but I believe this is at least one of the main reasons girls don't seem to give me a chance. What I want to ask the ladies is, would my assumption be accurate based off what I told you. Also this situation makes it harder to believe that God has someone out there for me. I know I need to trust Him, but it's hard when things just don't go your way. Should I wait till I am done with school and have a better job to start dating, pursue different girls, and start accepting the possible fact that marriage may not be possible for me?
