Does anyone think saying you're a "nice guy" is code for "boring" or "not too interesting"? I'm on several dating websites, and I can't seem to get very far. People express interest sometimes, and I respond to some but I never seem to get beyond that stage. The last guy emailed me to say that I seemed "nice," and I responded but I have yet to hear anything. People tell me I'm attractive, but I can't seem to get anywhere in love. And now I'm 43, which is ancient by gay standards, so I feel like throwing in the towel sometimes. It just seems like a lot of frustration and heart ache. I wish my self esteem weren't so tied up in the attention I would like from others (or just one special person), but there it is--c'est la vie. It's very hard to meet people, especially in the superficial, status-obsessed L.A. area in which I live.
