Dating in Birmingham has never been my strong point. As a young lad my mates would laugh at me because they had girlfriends and I did not. You see, I am a shy person. I struggle when I am around a pretty girl. In my brain, the words make perfect sense. Yet once they have reached my mouth. They seem to have got all jumbled up. I open my mouth and a bunch of gobbledygook seems to have replaced the words. I go red in the face and I just wish that the ground would open up underneath me and swallow me whole. This problem has followed throughout my entire life. The strange thing is that I consider myself to be a very successful person. I hold a high position in a very busy marketing company. I talk to clients from all over the world on an almost daily basis. Yet, whenever I am with women in a social situation…I just dry up. It got to the point where I felt like it was stunting my social life. My friends would turn up with their current girlfriend. And I would just be sat there feeling like the odd one out. So, one day, I decided that enough was enough and that I would find a therapist to help me with my problem. I used to go to a session every week. I was taught an array of techniques that were supposed to help. Every Friday night I would try them out whenever I saw a woman who I was attracted to. However, I just never felt completely comfortable enough for it to work. Then, one day, I was watching the TV and there was a documentary on about sex therapy. Intrigued, I watched to the end. I was amazed at how many men had problems in relating with the other sex. It seemed that sex therapy helped these people with their varied issues. By this point in my life I was getting frustrated. I thought I was never going to date in Birmingham.
