Default Are there any factors that are absolutely necessary to get a date?

People say confidence or looks, but is anything else really needed in order to get a date?

You need to ask the other person.

A personality is a good quality to have. Being an outgoing person would also help.

Well in some cases, duct tape and a blunt object.

I can't think of any one quality that would ensure that you never get a date except maybe total lack of interest in getting one. However, I think that the qualities that will ensure that you get more of them are the same qualities that help you make friends--if you make friends easily I think you could get dates more easily too. And then there is that ill-defined sex appeal but I have no idea how you get more of that except to make yourself as attractive as possible and then when you feel attractive, or act as if you think you are, it shows.

For most of the gals I know the ability of a potential date to fog a mirror is non-negotiable.

There are some out there that prefer guys that *don't* fog the mirror, but they are pretty rare, probably not your type anyway.

OK seriously, I was in your shoes long ago. I got out of the situation by working out and getting into seriously good physical shape. I was *very* nerdy as a kid and up into Jr. High. I saw some Arnold Schwarzenegger ads in various magazines "muscle up and make out" (remember those?) and I thought, WTF, let's give that a try, I was starting to get into cars so figured that even if the girls did not dig it, being able to bench-press a transmisson into place might not be a bad thing to be able to do.

So, I changed my body, that changed my attitude, and that changed the ladies attitudes towards me.

Your mileage may vary, as always.

I would say having your own dependable transportation, but in big cities that is not the case. I could never imagine not having a drivers license or knowing how to drive!
