Relying on your friends to introduce you to women

Postby jamesbond » Wed Jun 09, 2010 9:38 pm

Statistics show, most people in the US meet people through their friends. In fact, 63% of people who are married in the US, met their future spouse through a friend or family member. The thing is, you need to like the people your friends introduce you to.

Now if your friends don't know of any single women they can introduce you to, then you are shit-out-of-luck! lol :lol:

I know Winston said he didn't have any luck meeting women through his friends (his friends told him all the single girls they knew had boyfriends, or if they knew of girls who were available, he wouldn't be the girls type).

Have any of you guys had success meeting women through your friends?

In a word: NO. Read my posts in the other thread form almost a year ago. The same question was asked before & I wrote about my case.

People who rely on this strategy are weak-minded or desperate in my view. Unless the other party has already been seen in person or in a photo, I think this is just a loser's way to go.

The funny thing is, this is how most people in the US meet other people. They wait until their friends introduce them to someone. This strategy is not needed in other countries (where it is easy to meet people like in south america, eastern europe and the Philippines).

The even funnier thing is this method hardly even works...and it's often the suggested method too!

One of my female friends was begging to set me up with one of her friends for over a year.

Turns out it was all an attempt to use me.

The entire year I was under the impression this woman she wanted to introduce me to was right here in the same state as we were.

I finally decided to accept her offer. She tells me the woman is in the Philippines. That is a 48 hr round trip flight. The age of the woman? >30 years.

The way this female friend of mine figures, I should bring her friend to the states so she can make real money as a nurse and send all our money back to her 100 extended family members. She didnt say that, but that's what it boils down to.

Did I mention I think women over 30 are way too old for me? Even though I am over 30 myself. This is not something I am looking for.

At the age of 30, she should have had her own family already in her RP. If not, why not?

Also, for a long time she wouldnt tell me her name. I wanted to look on facebook to see what this woman looks like. But she wouldnt give me the name.

Meeting through friends my ass. There is always an agenda, and that is life support for some vagina to either life off of you or to extract something of value from you and most likely discard you after your usefulness has ended.

What I hate about cultures where you have to rely on others to introduce you to meet people is that it makes you feel handicapped or inept. It's like not being able to go out without an escort or not being able to take the bus without someone having to buy a ticket for you. It makes you feel powerless and dependent. It's very dehabilitating.

The thing is MOST women in the US WANT to meet guys through their friends! I heard a poll on the news that said 78% of women in America want to meet guys through their friends because they feel most comfortable meeting guys that way. They don't feel comfortable having guys approach them on the street and would rather be introduced to a guy by one of their friends.

Well, if you're like me, and have no close friends, you might as well forget about trying to find anyone.
