I try, it's just when I approach women in person I get the distinct impression they're uncomfortable and would rather I pissed off. They also tend to wear earbuds as a "don't approach me" thing when in public.
What scenarions/venues is it acceptable to talk to women these days?
You have nothing to lose. Take the risk and approach in real world. You have wasted 3 years on dating apps for no results. Time to quit online dating and just approach anywhere in real world. Quit caring what others think and pursue what curl-6 wants.
