Many college aged men do the same. I just don't get this business of you completely ignoring one half of the equation to disparage the other.
Women are smaller men, if you want to make friends with one think about where you would go for, say, your hobbies. Are there table-top game sessions at your community center? Spend time there and you'll eventually stumble upon a woman with the same /tg/ hobbies. The difficult part here is that you want to romance a woman. Here's the thing: if you're struggling with a woman, you're not going to be some hot-shot boipucci slayer either.
It's just hard to convince someone to spend the rest of their fucking life with you for anybody. It's really easy, however, to make friends.
