    Default Guys getting rejected on dating shows

    I've watched a lot of episodes of First Dates, the NZ version and others. It seems that the success ratio of dates is about 50% and of the ones that aren't successful, probably 9 times out of 10 it's the woman doing the rejecting, often with words "You're a really great guy, but..." I understand why many of the women do say no to another date but isn't it frustrating to watch as a man? Guys who display too much keenness too quickly fail to arouse sexual feelings within the lady while those who behave like a gentleman but without the necessary charm and humour also end up in the 'friend zone'. Most of the rejected dudes are good guys who deserve a decent woman but they don't know how to make a woman feel attraction (i know from experience that it's a difficult art). Im guessing its reflective of the general population but wouldn't it be great if there was a bit more balance in the rejection ratio?

    When you turn up with a turtle neck for your first date or to anywhere, most women will reject you
    The young 19 year old guy with the 22 year old girl, could of done way better, and Im sure now he will have girls falling over him left right and centre. That girl who went out every weekend and had various diffent one night stands who never called her back, was not good enough for him,
    If you are so un confident on a date or too over confident on a date its apperantly not good. I went on a date once with a guy, it was so awful, he was the least confident person I had ever met and he kept asking me if I didnt like him or was everything ok and was he doing anything wrong, it was awful. If he didnt offer to buy me dinner I would of run to the hills in the first 5 minutes.
    I just dont go out on dates anymore... what a drama.

    Manu just asked me for your number because he wanted to ask you out for a date.

    I told him not to bother calling you because you don't go out on dates anymore.

    Great point!! Its set up like its the guy getting rejected mostly. Which doesn't help guys with confidence watching the show. Maybe it's a woman strong audience of viewers and it's better to producer if woman are shown to have the power. Who knows..

    The poor 19 yr old guy last night had a lucky escape at I'm way more older than you woman at 22! She was patronising!!

    I loved the chick who was so open and honest and they saw each other again but he went off with someone else.

    I felt for the guy in the turtle neck, probably not much experience with woman on dates and to get one who seemed to think she was too intellectual. At least he had good morals in life to develop with his spiritual side.

    Sometimes in that show its like the guy behind the bar must get a lot of numbers cos he is a smooth talker..

    Dating isn't easy. I dated every night for a few weeks and meet some interesting guys. From no confidence to too much confidence, not often ones comfortable in own skin as they are. The few that were I still have as friends. The others I didn't connect to.
    It opened my eyes to how I was on dates. I tried hard never to stop me coming out, nervous or not. I'd never dated before as my ex was my first everything and had only ever dated him.

    My tip for dating. Be who you really are, not who she thinks you might be. Wear a turtle neck if it's you. Better to loose her on first date being yourself than faking it and down the track when it hurts more.
    And never underestimate yourself. One guy I know thinks he'd never attract a woman socially, he misses the signs and the looks.

    One thing I did on all dates was tell them I was an escort, because it would of been something they had to accept from day one .

    I'm sorry Bell - it was that look you gave me over the table I guess. If I come up again, I promise not to ask you if you like me again? Is that ok? Are you sure?
    Bell? Bell? Why are you running away Bell?
