Dating new friends
If you don't like it, fix one or both of those.As for dating, I find it hard to believe in this day and age people think going to the bar and trolling for randoms is going to be more fruitful than dating apps, but.... Your post to me reads more about the disconnect between your expectations and reality - meaning, the difference between how easy it is to make friends when you're in situations (school, work, etc) when you are around people quite a bit, and/or they are in a similar situation (wrt needing new friends) and how much effort is required to break into other peoples existing social networks such that you can develop a meaningful relationship with that person.I completely get what you are saying and I haven't been here long so I owe it to myself to give it more time.But I wouldn't go as far to suggest that making friends is the same everywhere you go.These acquaintances go to the bar with me so I have people to be with when I meet various girls at night. The issue is it literally seems as if girls only date/ hookup people who they know personally or friends of friends etc.
If people are asking you about your frat, its probably either because you're hanging out in the wrong place (buckhead), or you look like a frat guy.
Never before have I approached a girl in a major city bar and been asked without initiating college conversation what fraternity I was in.
I know the south is more into that stuff than the north and I actually like greek life culture to an extent, but it almost feels like the nightlife here is more like a college town than a major metropolis.
Different regions, cities, countries etc have different cultures and sometimes different approaches to the situation are better in some places than others.
As far as what you said about dating apps, I specifically admitted that its been my only success so far.
