I’m not making progress. Women just don’t seem interested in me. But now, it does not really affect me anymore (I’m not saying this with resent). Women are not attracted to me, I just have to accept it. Out of the millions out there, it’s very likely that one I like is going to be attracted to me one day.

Take some time for yourself. 19 months ago
You are the master, not the victim.
I wrote a short essay on how I quit. Look it through my profile, it will help you make a plan for when you are ready to quit. it’s important to plan ahead, so that you have recourse to your strategies when feeling the urge to smoke. 19 months ago
People gossip about you because you respond in the way they expect you to. With time you will learn to be less reactive and trust your own self more. There is no stress, really. Be easy on yourself. In time you’ll see there really is no need to seek the approval of others who you probably don’t really give a damn about anyway, and speaking your mind and standing for your own won’t seem as risky. Wishing you the best.
Well, okay. I’m not sure what to think about this anymore..
I’m not sure I could even express the way I feel about it anymore.
It has so not worked out for me, I just can’t believe it.
I try to focus on other things but it creeps me.
It’s painful just thinking about it.
Basically, I feel rejected by anything desirable. 20 months ago
I can have conversations now, with difficulty but I’m one step closer to fluency. I listen to audiobooks and tv shows. I can follow along quite well. Not bad, I guess for someone who learned the language by himself at home. I’ve started learning my fourth language now. 20 months ago
I’ve been learning my third language (spanish), part time, these past 2 years and I’m now to the point where I can engage in conversations (although with difficulty). So I’m thinkin’ it would be time to begin learning my fourth. I wanted to learn german or chinese mandarin, but I’m still unsure as to which to pick. I’m thinking mandarin is the most useful since so much people speak it but I’ll see.. 21 months ago
Seriously, throw them away. It’s empowering to be able to get rid of what we feel like holding on to. 21 months ago
Seriously, is this possible at all? Can it happen? 21 months ago
Not really tryin’ anymore. I don’t know if I care anymore, I prefer to take the risk of never finding someone than feeling sorry for myself. 22 months ago

Also, I’d suggest seeking out people online who speak spanish to chat over skype. That’s a really good way to improve. There are websites done exactly for this purpose (language exchanges)
try searching for “language exchange skype” 22 months ago
Travel to Latin America (or Spain if you can afford it), or look for student exchange programs.

How I did it:
Deciding I wanted to quit was the first and major step towards accomplishing my goal. Then I read a few resources about quitting to smoke and built a plan upon it so that I can take action with confidence.
*I attempted to quit a few times over the years before actually doing it for good.
It's now been over 2 years since I've stopped.
(update, nov. 10 2010, it will be 4 years in march 2011) Read how I did it… 4 years ago
I am trying to meet girls now. I’m not having much success and feeling like a failure at times, but I’m using the same strategy I use when I want to succeed with anything: I follow through despite the way it feels. 2 years ago
