I have recently started admitting to it.
Let's huddle in the collective safety and psuedo anonymity of this thread.
Let's talk about how brilliant it is going out pulling and sleeping around.
That's well grown up.
then I probably didn't have one of these till my mid-late 20s.
i hate saying this on here though cos it puts me in the same category as joe, and... i dunno, theo? When really i'm not that terrible looking and can hold a conversation and my penis isn't even grotty or anything. So i dunno.
i'm sure theo's insatiable.........................
Sure, if you're 18, don't stress about it, but if you're, say, 30, it's perfectly reasonable to be bothered, doesn't mean you're somehow unready.
i don't understand how people think that what they're missing in themselves is a partner, despite not having one before. it doesn't make sense. you're not going to die from desperation.
also, you should at least have some sort of understanding of your actual needs vs. wants before you go galivanting into someone else's life.
you're an idiot
enjoy your life, virgin
You're upset that you're wrong
come back when you understand the internet
I've been single my whole adult life. I'm perfectly content with living alone, going on holiday alone, building flat pack furniture alone, getting the night bus back from an evening with friends alone, etc. Someone who's been in a relationship or series of relationships since they were about 16 would find it a lot harder to cope with having to do everything by themselves if they suddenly became single.
not all people in relationships lack common sense. also not all of them cohabit or see their partners very much at all
It's possible to want to be in a relationship without assuming it'll magically solve all your problems.
more than anything, it's entirely contingent to the fact. BASIC PHILOSOPHY.
People very often are looking for a partner whilst single. The only difference between them and someone the same age who hasn't had a partner is exactly that. It's completely reasonable for that to weigh on their mind to some extent. Obviously people can get too worked up on it, but that's not the same thing.
This isn't even a brusma-style self defence. It was just a really sweeping statement you made and it doesn't really work so yeah. Sorry.
*not me, but she's a good looking drummer girl, we chatted about it once and I guess it comes down to not wanting a one night stand but then getting too worried when you do actually meet someone and so putting them off
Me personally I've never had a proper long-term relationship. I've only ever met one guy I was that fussed about and the rest of the time I'm cool with things that are temporary or just fun.
this weekend and she's determined to lose her virginity (she's 22). I don't know how to politely tell her that I would rather she not bring home some random guy from this club we're going to and shag him on my pull-out sofa. :\
don't be doing any shagging on my settee, yeah?
The longest he's had was circa 5 weeks. He's good looking, pretty buff and works in the City for pretty big money but has an absolutely noxious personality. I can't actually imagine any woman putting up with him for long enough that he'll EVER have a girlfriend.
Making anything stick for longer than the expiration lifecycle of a Pret sandwich is the bigger issue
everyone says the relationship thing is because he loves me and no other girl compares don't blame him tbh
"Take Kitchmo, for instance. He has had sex with me many times."
But your heart wasn't really in it.
Now all it feels like I do is work :(
though definite guyatwork is just as good if I can get to know him
I've met plenty, they just never like me back.
it was that one.
young geezer-wannabees refer to their girlfriends as "The Mrs". FFS, you're 22 and you've been going out for a year.
