I feel like there are too many social pressures to meet most of the expectations driven by popular culture... besides, my lousy job and other factors make it nearly impossible to find, much less maintain, any meaningful relationships.
Anybody else find themselves in the same situation, or am I the only ape here left grooming themselves in the corner?
I honestly would like to be in a steady relationship with an intelligent, atheist female. Seeing that i have never in my 28 yrs. of life have ever had a girlfriend and do not expect to ever know what it feels like to share my life/love with another human being. Women have never showed any interest in me, besides for the occasional hello. I know i am not ugly, dumb, or crazy, and I don't even drink alcohol . I suppose this is the way life will continue to be for me till i cease to exist, I have come to terms with this inconvenient truth.
so this naked ape knows exactly the situation your are in.
Wow, yeah, that's kind of the middle of freaking nowhere. I just pulled up your town on Google Maps. You should try moving to a larger city or something. Do you work for one of the universities or something, that it's difficult for you to move?
Heck, try the university students. They're likely to be less religious than the others in the area.
I just hooked up with an old (maybe 10 years ago) fling that was religious, but is now an atheist. She seems willing to have an ongoing sexual relationship without all the trappings of a traditional "girlfriend" situation. I'm beside myself.
