Do you feel that you are/would be better at "picking up" romantic partners than the average person? Story in the comments

When I'm not trying, sometimes. But when I try I'm just plain awkward.

When I'm in my "confidence mode" I guess I could call it, yeah. I believe I can. It starts with the laughs. I show a little bit of who I am but not fully, because if the girl really wants to know the rest of you, she'll make the effort to do so.

But I'm sorry that happened to you, man. That shit sucks. Other guys, when a girl is involved, can be complete assholes. My advice, if you're looking, you won't find. If you're not looking, it may happen. (In regards to finding a girl).

I'm weird, I usually only attract those who are greater than or equally as weird as me. Everyone else avoids me lol

I thought there would be a much larger difference between men and women. I've always felt as a woman that I have a pretty easy time with it!

If by "picking up" you meaning lifting them, then yes. ;)

Well I put no, I mean I can start a friendship with a potential partner, even get her to like me (as a friend as far as I can tell), but when it gets down to it when you got to confess, I crumble

No way, I get nervous and awkward when I'm around attractive girls. The few times I don't get nervous for some miraculous reason, however, I actually do very well. That almost never happens though.

Unless you mean physically lift them off the ground, no, I'm not good at picking up romantic partners.

I'm a basketball player too only I'm about 5 foot nothing (5'10), but I played mainly point guard so it didn't matter as much. Wow you were a tree at a young age, if you were coordinated at that age I bet you were unstoppable

I'm female so one night stands would be no problem however I'm not 'girlie' so a long term relationship might be a problem.

It's just as dick move as far as I'm concerned - just as his earlier prank on you was - and not a source of humor, unless one enjoys being a jerk. Even you called him a jerk.

Lol. I've always had trouble talking to girls I just meet and are interested in. The main problem is that most girls aren't interested in politics and I know very little about pop culture. I'd do much better in high society than this dump.

You don't have to be. I went to Costa Rica and met lots of girls that don't speak English. And I don't speak Spanish. It was just chemistry.

But don't feel bad for him, the first time I met my (ex) girlfriend of over a year he told me he wishes me the best getting my herpes cleared up. That was fun explaining to her for 10 mins that my friend was just a jerk and everything...
