I've always been kind of a loner and had very little dating success my entire adult life. For some reason this year -- at 36 years of age -- I'm starting to get a little scared. Maybe post-35 was the tipping point that made me realize if I don't do something different I'm probably going to be alone for the rest of my life. I've tried meetups and online dating, but not much luck. I've thought about getting a dating coach and/or reading up on PUA and that sort of thing. I am really ignorant on all the important stuff I should have learned by now. I'm going to this cooking class singles mixer next week, then a big Paleo conference (paleo nutrition/fitness are passions of mine, and there are numerous social events during the conference). I'm trying to fill up my calendar with things that might give me the opportunity to meet interesting women, but I want to make the best use of those opportunities. The meetups and online dates have been horrendous. Any recommendations, especially on overcoming my lack of confidence and my anxiety approaching women?
