It Happened

After trying to find a girlfriend in the Lower Mainland for years I was about to give up. I was never good looking or successful enough. It was always one thing after another. I almost lost hope but went on vacation in the Netherlands and met so many amazing women. They were beautiful, cool, confident, had their own jobs, and challenged me physically and intellectually. I fell in love with one and she has moved here to live with me. Sounds really crazy and its completely unlike anything I would do but I had to take my shot. Don't lose hope people in Vancouver and take your shot at love.

Until My early 20s

I thought I was a social misfit,unwanted, and would never have a girlfriend.
Till I went travelling,to California and Europe. Women actually were interested in me,talked to me and wanted to be around me.

Is it because Vancity is so expensive,that women want a guy with more potential assets and guys who don't have this,know it and give up on dating?

Thinly veiled attempt to disparage women in this city, and to encourage responses that do the same. Now I understand why men here scowl when I try to interact with them. I thought it was me - not pretty enough, not "easy" enough, not successful enough? Just like with the OP, it's men who aren't from Vancouver who smile back when I smile at them. I always believed that I was unattractive, but these guys are proving me wrong.

Why here and not the Netherlands? The Kingdom of the Netherlands is awesome and when you take your mandatory 25 days off year you can have a romantic getaway to Italy or France.

Go Dutch!!

If local women knew how many men have left here to find love and start families they would choke on their air/kale smoothie's

To find a nice American girl. What is up with dating within vancouver? Maybe everyone is obsessed with status? I don't get it. I'm just glad I met my wife somewhere else after 5 years dating in vancouver and always feeling like i'm not good enough. So many lady ghosts out there!

First off, many women in Vancouver have their "own jobs".
Your statement is very condescending and insulting to Vancouver women.
Second, are you recommending we travel abroad to find love?

I thought she was Polish. But yeah, seems to be a repeat thing around here.
