This is to all the singles and virgins out there.

Why aren't you trying to get involved with someone? What is preventing you from doing anything to get out of your current status?

Currently going through college, later university, and working a job. I've been in relationships before, and I've enjoyed them- But working at a fast-food place, I've also seen what a relationship can do to your life if you take it on too early.

I want to become financially stable and independent first, so that if I get in a relationship and something happens to my partner, or they end up being a money leech, I'm not going to end up flipping Big Macs until I die paying off debt.

I'm mostly asexual and don't think I'll be interested in a serious relationship until I'm at least 30 years old. I want my life to myself, for now

Perhaps I just haven't met the right someone to get my juices flowing yet, though~

My standards are too high, and I tend to go for unreliable/cunt girls.

So there are multiple girls I've slept with who I would never go out with, and a few girls I've slept with who don't want to take it further who I actually like.

I feel like I occupy this weird place where there aren't girls on my level. I either punch above or below my weight. Actually, there are some girls that are what I would consider neither above or below, but they tend to be absolutely fucking batshit insane.

I am dating a girl right now. We have been together for almost 2 years and I thoroughly enjoy being around her. Very chill, plays vidjas, smokes weed, similar sense of humor, and generally fun. A little high maintenance at times but still great.

My last girlfriend is crazy, no two ways about it. She thought her closet was haunted, she thought this one rock she had was holding the spirit of a volcano god (I wish I was kidding, I really do), very paranoid about her health (had the advice nurse on speed dial), and I was unable to take her out in public because she gets freaked out in crowds.

well one would assume that if it bothers them, it is a problem in need of fixing. perhaps the problem is not getting women, but the desire to get a woman. or that one gets a woman rather than a mutual arrangement. or the getting of women as being seen as a requirement of being a happy person, rather than an actual desire to be with a specific someone. or it could be they just need to learn they deserve to be loved too. or they just need to learn how to talk to girls they don't know and the rest falls into place.

Of the two girls I've found myself attracted to recently, one's a classmate I only really started talking to towards the end of the semester, and I'm kicking myself for that. Hmong girl, real sporty, finishing up undergrad and going into pharmacy school; fairly deep voice and intimidating demeanor for a girl, but honestly I kinda like that. I'm pretty sure if I was a woman I'd be the stupid one that falls for bad boys all the time; it's that kind of thing. Pretty sure she's not interested in me. I'm the only white dude in the Hmong class, so I'm mostly a bit of a curiosity to everyone.

The other is our SR table's razorgirl's player. She's from a bordertown in Minnesota's North Woods, 1/4 Ojibwe, but basically white; slightly chubby, but wears it pretty well. Just finished up an English major. Big into the video games, former /ck/ user. Serious workaholic, though, which makes her a bit hard to really feel like you're emotionally connecting with sometimes. We've been besties for years now, though, so it was a bit weird realizing when she came back from a study abroad in England that I'm attracted to her.

I've been in a similar position to you man. I can assure you I did a lot of research, and took to psychology academically. I'm 26 right now and I'm in a research lab, though it's no big deal. So I'll let you in on a secret.

You've probably got trust and emotional issues that are hiding as other issues. I don't give a shit about most people either, and I realized that part of it was that I had a pretty good idea of who I liked and who I didn't...

But the other was that I wasn't willing to care about them. To trust my emotions would be worth exposing to them and wouldn't hurt me. And even more so, any sense of attatchment or reliance on them.

I think you should consider that you don't let yourself care. Not on a conscious level, but after years of building up those defenses and reactions, they've seamlessly ingrained themselves in a way you can only really get at by examining the situations.

Relationships are work.

It takes work to start one and it takes work to keep one going.

I find that most people who complain about being single list off things that make it hard for them to get one, most of which are stupid reasons. "I'm shy, I am socially awkward, blah blah blah". If you really wish to stop being single, stop fucking complaining and do something about it.

Totally agree with this. We often forget that our own perceptions of the world are flawed, often coloured by our current mood and life situation, and are subject to change at the slightest whim of fate.

You seem like you've done exactly what any virgin does. Justify their virginity and rationalize it out. Which is fine. Being a virgin is no big deal. I'm a virgin. No one can tell I'm a virgin, and I never really think about it.

But you need to accept like I've had too, and most people have too, that we've created behaviour patterns and perceptions which keep us virgins. Our behaviour is what keeps us as such, not the outside world and not other people.

Which is also comforting. Because as I really look at myself, I see how I fuck myself over. The things I tell myself, the worries I have. And I'm starting to realize that I could have been laid years ago. It's just that I'm unwilling to do certain things that would lead to it. Either because I'm afraid or because I lack the skills to get them done.

You wanna know the best thing you can do? Honestly? If it bugs you that much? If you've got friends who aren't social retards, be open and honest with them about your problems and ask for their help. See a psychologist if you must. But a lot of the time, if you haven't figured it out by yourself by now, you need to talk to people.

Most people are a lot more understanding than you think. They don't shirk at the information, but the responsability of dealing with the information.

I know 'skills' is ambigious, but I'll give some examples. A skill in this example could be

...knowing how to dress yourself in a way that makes you look good
...knowing how to read body language and inflection well enough to understand when someone is actually interested in you. (A lot of nerds don't notice because they're too busy worrying about people being interested in them)
...knowing how to think out rejection and move past it. (Asking people out isn't hard, having a successful strategy for realizing it's no big deal is)
...being able to reason out whether or not it was you or the situation. You've got to remember that in western civilization, we tend to attribute everything to the person and not the environment. They could be late for class, have gotten in a fight, be depressed and so forth.

But there are a lot of small skills like these that most anti-social people need to pick up. A particular skill I've been working on is realizing that I have attractive qualities. I have unattractive ones too, but I need to accept there are attractive ones too.

So the skill I'm learning here is how to notice and emphasize those.

Edgyfag here. I know it's my behavior keeping me a virgin, and I'm ok with that. I guess my point is, why this fixation on not being one? Like, I really could have had sex at this point if I'd wanted to. Several opportunities stick out in my mind, from a couple girls I friendzoned (including one gorgeous but completely insane 18 year old stalker I had when I was fifteen; honestly, she was hot as hell and I was definitely attracted to her, but I knew she was bad news and to this day I feel like I dodged a bullet) to a couple girls I friendzoned (which makes the situation with the razorgirl an odd reversal for me) to the Saigon brothel I stumbled into when I was lost in Cholon last May (pretty much alone in the city for an academic conference, it was an adventure, hehe; I just thought it was a cafe and I wanted something to drink to beat the heat. Imagine my surprise). So I really do feel like it's been choices I've made, and I'm ultimately content with those choices.

What I take exception to is people acting like I've failed as a man somehow if they figure out that I'm a virgin. It's fundamentally judgmental; it's just the other side of the coin from calling nonvirgin girls sluts, you know? I don't feel like a failure, but I'm being judged as one, often by guys who spent the last four years drinking and playing Smash Bros in their parents' basements while I went out and did four years of undergrad. Wasn't it Inara Serra who said sex doesn't make you a man? That scene's coming to mind right now.

Anyways, I don't feel like I'm the problem here. I'm happy, lead a well balanced life with a lot of friends, just graduated, moving up in the world. I think it's these societal expectations of me that are the real problem here. Honestly, I don't even get much shit about my lack of a love life in person anyways, because most of my friends are female (including most of my Shadowrun table), and they don't do all the machismo teasing crap.

Honestly, some of them are better techies than I am. But we tend towards the magical end of the spectrum anyways in our characters. And thematically the punk stuff gets hammered home pretty well; we're a bunch of liberal arts majors, so the themes that get dealt with, the corporate control and class warfare (my pet point of struggle, considering I grew up with my dad as a UAW worker), the indigenous issues, the environmental angle, they're things we think and talk about anyways. Our shaman volunteers every weekend at Planned Parenthood, the razorgirl at the local American Indian Center, etc. So it's kind of a natural fit for us as a game in that regard; it thematically hits home a lot more than "We must purge the realm of subhuman goblins!" (colonialist/racist much?)

They were all people I knew beforehand anyways, but only three had done tabletop before. The other three were LJ-RP vets (one of whom's really blossomed as a player, participates to the fullest).
