I just got a brilliant idea! You can end up like me with all of my friends leaving me in the dust. Then you think to yourself... wow... I'm an older guy now and I kind of want to have a friend... then you go out there and find a girl that can be your friend!
Solved two birds with one stone!
Now you have a socially acceptable adult friend, and if that's your main goal, she'll probably want to date you, too -edit on 24-11-2012 by darkbake because: (no reason given)

A Lambo, and the "Idealized woman" are the perfect comparison.
It's best if one only has a poster of them. and neither lives up to the hype.
however, a real woman, with her own faults, who can also put up with your faults, is the best thing in the world.
Pay atention to the one who makes you feel comfortable when your are just being yourself.

Hmmm....after reading through this thread, the first thing I thought of is, all the men want the cute girls. There are so many women out there, who are loving, caring, and lonely, but they're not classically cute.
You want to know why that girl who's been bothering you is playing with your mind? Because you, and other guys like you, let her get away with it. Because, as you say, she was cute, and all you could do was stare at her body. Not like a boss, like a sucker.
Pretty girls learn early on that they can get away with whatever games they want to play, because men will allow it. They never had to develop their minds, or their personality, so they're just empty-headed bimbos who make men miserable. It is the rare woman who is beautiful inside as well as outside.
The same can be said for handsome, good looking guys. I've dated some gorgeous men, and I have to say, they were the worst boyfriends. Vain and stupid. You can only spend so much time between the sheets with these preening fools, and then it starts to wear mighty thin.
You are victim to our current social constructs, which states that success with females equals dating somebody pretty. No wonder so many men are angry and feel cheated in lfe! This isn't the movies, you know. Just because somebody like Seth Rogan gets the good-looking female lead, doesn't mean that it pans out in real life.
Pretty people tend to want to be with pretty people. It's a vanity thing, for sure. My youngest daughter is really very pretty. I worked very hard to get her to develop her mind and her personality, so she wouldn't be a vapid, annoying little heart-breaker. Although her personality and intellect are a bit more developed than your normal cutie-pie, she still broke a lot of hearts, and these were, I thought, really nice guys with good jobs and good hearts. She wanted her Valentino, which she now has, and I have to hear about her irritation with him all the time on the phone, because he is selfish. *Sigh*.
What is my long, belabored point? If I were you, I would re-write my profile on that dating site, saying that you are looking for that one special lady whom you can be best friends with, as well as lovers, and LOOKS ARE NOT IMPORTANT. In other words, cast a really wide net. You may catch some fish that you will throw back, but at least you're hauling 'em in, and not sitting there, lonely and angry, while some twit teases you and breaks dates on a whim.

I think its interesting that you associate a girlfriend with having a Lamborghini.
Ia Lamborghini a practical car? Can you afford it? Will it last you a long time? Is it really a good car for you in the long run? Lets face it owning a Lamborghini is a nice idea but its not really going to to work.
Maybe just like your choice of car you are going after the wrong kind of girls and this is why its not working?

Hookers are cheaper, and they don't come with the baggage, just saying.
