Not planning on starting a discussion with this post. Just thought I’d post it here instead of my personal journal today. 31 years old and never been in a relationship. No sex, kissing, hand-holding, never been on a date; nothing. The amount I would have to improve my social skills, adjust my personality, and generally catch up to where people who are near my age would consider me date-able is more work than I have the energy for anymore. Shrugging my shoulders and trying to learn to be content with being alone isn’t an option; the only thing worth a damn in life are the relationships you form with other people. Without that, life is pointless. I missed my opportunity for happiness with someone because I was afraid, and I hesitated. Now it’s too late. I’m old enough and realistic enough to know that another opportunity like that isn’t going to be around the next corner any time soon. If anyone out there is in a similar situation to me and they still have a chance with someone, take my advice and don’t hesitate. Anything else I post would be unimportant details, or is not allowed under the TOS/guidelines of this site. Irony in there somewhere maybe.
