I'll be 32 on February 5th and have yet to find a girlfriend. I currently work nights with few weekends and holidays off. I work with all men and spend most of my shift by myself. I live with 3 other guys who have very different schedules from mine and don't seem very interested in socializing. Most of my friends are either married or getting married soon and we rarely hang out anymore. I don't have any female friends anymore. When I have a night off I'll go out but it's usually a weekday and there are few if any single females out. Arghh it's frustrating. Anyone else in the same boat? What are you doing to meet females?

I've been on online dating sites (okcupid, plentyoffish) for 5 years with terrible results.

What has your experience been like on OKC? Where are you located? What are you looking for in a partner?

Have you tried any of those meet-up groups?

You should move to a college town near a crazy party school and pretend to be a student.

I'm pushing 27 and that's my bread and butter right there.

I live in Washington DC. I've had several profiles on okcupid trying different angles. Nothing seems to work. To be honest I do have a somewhat kinky side and crossdress now and then. Some profiles have mentioned this and others have not. I try to keep my profiles honest and/or humorous. I can go for nearly a year without a nessage from a female. Responses tend to be a) insults, b) "cool/funny profile"/"really appreciate the honesty" but I'm not interested in you, or c) from horny men who don't understand that I'm straight. I have met one nice single girl but she has 2 kids (one with behavioral issues) from 2 different men and a crazy mother who is bent on destroying her life (she had to kick her mom out of the house) so I don't know if I really want to get involved.

I've joined a few meetup groups but they've been very cliquish or I've been unable to commit to any group due to work.

I think you might need to get creative if you share info about this kinky side on profiles. Do you have a nice wardrobe of women's clothing that you are wiling to share?
