3. You know what they say: Unlucky at love...

You're basically screwed, but only metaphorically.

4. Story of my life............

When it comes to dating, I'm Oh-for-about-a-gazillion. I often ask, what do women want? Frequent response is, they want a man with a sense of humor--that's false, and I can prove it! I have a GREAT sense of humor. I can make ANY woman laugh--guaranteed--in TWO seconds! It's easy: I ask her out--she LAUGHS!

5. women want to be understood...

....or at least an attempt to be made at understanding them. And to understand another person, one has to understand oneself, first....

At least that it my take of this.... (happily married)

6. If it is any consolation, so was I. Women I adored found me a mildly interesting nerd at best.

Of course, it has been about 44 years since I even tried the dating game.

I just got lucky. A chance encounter, a coincidental introduction, and suddenly I had found my partner for life, just when I thought I was destined to strike out forever.

But that magic stroke of luck can and does happen. I'm living proof. Don't give up.

10. Just a chance encounter

July 25, 1974 in Berlin.

I was talking to a nice girl from Münster, and she told me she was leaving for China the next day. I thought "oh, well." Then she said, "but you should meet my girlfriend." I said, "sure, where is she?" She leaned back, and I was blown away when this tall blonde angel materialized. I figured, "right, like I'd EVER have a chance with a woman like HER." But then it struck me, "If I take that attitude all my life, I never WILL have a chance with someone like her. Even women like her end up with SOMEBODY, so why NOT me?" And so I struck up a conversation--the first of a lifetime of conversations (my German is a LOT better now).

Like I said, it CAN happen.

12. I haven't bought any for myself. Only for others.

I would've never thought of doing that.

Jeez. Are you sure that you want to do this?
