Any time, man. Anybody who wants to can find me on Skype: gaf.bagels.
I think you're the one I talked to when I was going through a tough time (Through Skype.) Thanks!
Great discussion on the height issue! You guys are amazing.
It's a good point about how being funny and self-deprecating can work against you when it comes to "serious" relationships. The funny, dependable guy is a great friend, but when it comes to romance, people seem to prefer assholes and douchebags.
I don't have a ton of great relationship advice (or advice in general, really), beyond people being attracted to confidence, because I honestly got very lucky and found a girl who saw my strongest qualities as great foundations for friendship, but also as the things she wanted in a mate. I look at my nerdy family and my nerdy friends and the guys more or less all attracted girls because of their sense of humor. There are people out there who realize how amazing it is to share your life with someone who can always make you laugh.
To steal Some wisdom from Pau, dating is a numbers game. You need to keep meeting people. Because the people who want what you have to offer are out there. There are people who only want to date tall people (or blonde hair or large breasts or whatever), but plenty of people think other things are way more important. You just need to find them. It's not easy, especially when you just want to hide from the world, but it's worth working on.
Man, do I ramble on or what?
