Great, go see one, then mingle at the bar with people who also enjoy opera. All you want is a chance at love, but ugh- you are SO awkward when it comes to love. There are women in their mid-twenties and older who are totally dateable and attractive to an outside eye. Some men see it as an indication that she's more virtuous, or emotionally healthy, or has better character. Rightly or wrongly, many women dismiss the idea of meeting someone at a bar, or through a stranger approaching them, out of hand.
For one, if you bring an outgoing, extroverted friend, there is a good chance they might steal your thunder.
Problems Facing Women Who Are Shy And Inexperienced With Men
Women do get rejected. But even for an unattractive girl all she has to do is go to a bar any night of the week and stand around and be approachable and she'll be guaranteed to be able to hook up with someone. This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn't have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points though you'll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts. Similarly, if a girl is standing around a party and not talking to anyone, people will tend to assume she's unfriendly unless she has a blatantly shy 'deer in the headlights' look on her face. We read into things way too much.
