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?
Are you talking to this ape?
I have settled for a vaguely progressive catholic.
Because although being single is okay, I really like having someone to help carry groceries.
But if someone better comes along, yeah, I'd give them a chance. But other than that, yeah, I'm technically single.
"Relationship of convenience" is the proper term. It's not an ideal situation but hey, I gotta do something on weekends.
We have those in the military. We normally call them a contract marriage. Its so you can get the increased pay and incentives for being married. They normally explode in peoples faces, they are good for a laugh though.
Yeah, I don't expect it to last very long, he's not exactly responsible or able to "provide" or say no to the newest gadget when he doesn't have the money for it, it's convenient for now, once I graduate I'll probably break up with him and never talk to him again.
It's nicer than getting rejected again and again by dudes who then complain about being alone or lonely, though. This relationship really is a time-filler for me, and I'll totally admit it, but I'm tired of how guys are where I live. Most of them either find me physically repulsive and others just "don't feel a spark", when I don't believe in love anyways--it's a numbers game.
I feel like throwing in the towel. Hell, an African American female that don't love the Lord. In my community, it makes the dating scene hard. It's hard dating Christians. I thought it wouldn't matter but when a person says things to me like "Thank God for your raise at work" or "thank God for your new car" or whatever. I think fuckin' idiot!!!!!! I worked for that shit!!!
I mean the constant quotes. "The devil is a liar". "Have faith"!!! It is such a turn off for me. How am I ever gonna find someone?
Black folks love their Jesus!
