    I am having one of my, "omg why don't I have a boyfriend?" days, I hate it when I see couples holding hands down the street, or couples at restaurants, or couples cuddling on the grass at parks, pisses me off. icon_cry.gif

    Yeah, 'cause, like, being an actual human being is so, like, lame.


    He sounds like a human being to me, cold and only sex conscious, yep he's human alright.

    Oh my my my my my my my. You are not in a good frame of mind. No, I regret to say that you are not. No, sir. I don't believe you are. No indeed. I should say not. Negatory.


    You deliberately waffling to make me laugh?

    I get like that all the time, I'm way too romantic and sentimental for my own good and it really gets to me that I don't have a boyfriend.

    Being single is tough for sure. Some guys aren't just meant to be in relationships. And some guys need to be attached - never being alone. Key is accepting who you are whether you are single or not and maintaining a support group of close friends and relatives I think. PS. Those guys walking down the street hand in hand may be single the next month.

    Yes icon_sad.gif
    Frankly, though, I'd rather wait for a nice guy than jump into a relationship with some less-than-average Joe.

    I am in the state of constant bewilderment that not only am I single but I don't even know any gay people. As I posted in another thread, I just terminated my membership with match.com because
    1 - this group ruined me for average looking men.
    2 - they said it was $20 a month but they charged me for the whole year at once.
    3 - even people who sent me winks and nudges did not respond when I wrote to them. It was pointless.

    I find the worst is when you are at family functions or dinner parties, and you are the only single person there... that's when I get a bit depressed...

    Maybe we should all watch "Tough Love Co-Ed." I've got it on now and some of the men are pretty hot.

    Everyone does when they are single. The trick is to stay interesting to yourself. Then date. Or even hook up with nice guys (yes, that can be done). You stay on a solid path that develops you as a person, you'll stumble across the right guy. Or he'll stumble across you. Usually someone not at all what you were expecting or searching for. When I was single, the thing I missed the most was a loving touch. Someone who actually wanted to be with me. Your jealousy of couples is entirely understandable. Have a date with yourself. Buy a good steak and a bottle of wine and watch a movie.

    Not everyone.
    I couldn't imagine being hitched to anyone again.
    The thought gives me the shudders.

    I wouldn't go as far as Sharky, but I'd say Destin's comment is a bit ridiculous. I've never gotten depressed BECAUSE I'm single. In fact, most days I look on the bright side of what it offers me, while being open to the appearance of my Prince, sometime.

    Tbh I am very very family conscious, the main reason why I have ever wanted a man was to eventually start up a family, lately I have been reassuring myself that I could have children by myself, but raising a family is a two person job, most single parent families have a drastically higher poverty rate than two person headed families.

    Thus, I will eventually have to find me a man to help me or there goes my dream of being a daddy.

    That's because you're still young.
    I've already gotten on the bus to the cemetery, though it's a couple of stops away yet.
    The busdriver promised if I was quiet that he'd stop so's I could get one last Slurpee.

    I don't buy it. You're saying you never get sad and lonely? Bull****!

    Yes i do. Not so much thinking "why don't i have a boyfriend" though, it's more a longing desire for closeness and connection with a guy who is as into me as I am into him, with whom i can explore both the adventures and mundane parts of ours lives. I want that spark, chemistry, and I want it to be mutual.

    Usually I'm ok on my own. A lot of times i dont think about it at all. I'm ok today, its not a big deal. Every once in a while though it just eats away at me. The days it is the worst are the days when I become convinced that I will never actually meet anyone, and I'll be alone forever.

    Today I'm ok though. I'd rather be alone than with somebody i wasn't really into (who was also as into me).

    I can totally understand the desire, the drive to want kids. To make a family. Be careful you don't find yourself getting involved with a guy just for this reason, though. You should enter into a relationship that is entirely about him. Not what he can do for you. That said, though, you can have hopes and dreams of having a family.

    Ya, I was pretty much this way when I got lucky. And then I was kind of astonished that I found someone who was as into me as I was him.

    No, neither sad nor lonely. I do miss my family back home, and now I miss my friends in Chicago sometimes also. But sad and/or lonely because I'm single? NO FUCKING WAY!
