Need Help Getting on the Right Track
I hope I am posting in the correct location, but I am in desperate need of advice. First off, I will be turning 25 in a month and I have never been on a date. That being said, I have not had a meaningful conversation with a girl my age in about 3 years. I would consider myself to have average looks, and by now means would consider myself unattractive. My biggest problem is I have no friends, and I find it incredibly difficult to meet. I thought I had anxiety problems, but I can go out with no problems. My issue is just meeting people my age it seems I never see them at the places I have visited.
Anyway, I live in a pretty rural area (which does not help my predicament), but I am within a 30 minute drive of a medium small city so I am not completely isolated. I just need some advice in regards of places to start to meet people. Any and all advice would be appreciative.

Half hour isn't too bad. In LA, that's a typical car trip from point A to point B. Several ways to make friends, TrueStory has a good sticky on the subject.
-Take a class at the local community college. Counseling Psychology would be good, lots of girls in that one. Grad school is great for creating friendships because of the small size of the class. I made many good friends in Grad School.
-Friendster - Never tried it, but I hear it's good to create platonic friendships and acquaintences
-A local PUA lair - Check if the city nearby has one.
-Part time job somewhere.
25 is a late bloomer age for this, but there's a PUA instructor who didn't lose his virginity until he was 26. You're going to need to exercise your social skills - even by yourself you can get pretty good. Start by saying hello to everyone you pass on the sidewalk. Ask girls for directions. Get comfortable with talking to strangers. Most people are pretty decent, even in the capitol of weird, LA.
I'm going to guess that you've got yourself psyched out with the girl approaching/meeting/dating/screwing thing. You're going to have to remove the stink of desperation from your being. Girls pick up on it like dog shit on the bottom of a shoe. Like anything, you're going to have to make a concerted effort to become nonchalant with your interactions with women. Be prepared to get rejected. You need to disconnect from the outcome. You're going to have to forgive yourself for not being perfect with your approaches to women. Read up on the three second rule and pickup.
