I think this describes my situation:
It’s especially difficult to find a partner if you don’t like to go out much.
Redditor ShakerJew explained that they think they’ll stay a virgin for a while:
“I have no clue how to advance relationships beyond friendship … I’ve never even held anyone’s hand… I’m not ugly at all either. When I see people in a relationship I just think ‘Wow that must be nice but that is not for me, I can’t have that. I must deprive myself of happiness.’“
User another-redditor3 echoed this sentiment:
“Not much of a story really.
I’m 30, unemployed, live at home with my parents and have nothing that even resembles a social life. I talk to friends online once every few weeks or so, but it’s been 18+ months since I’ve seen any of them in person.
As for interests/activities, the few things I’m interested in are solo activities, or male dominated.”
If you’re not interested in checking out new places to meet potential dates, that’s cool. Focus on your own fulfilling hobbies.
Now I got to think, what kinds of hobbies can I get into where I can meet people. Perhaps I can join a college alumni group who will on occasion support the sister “Hillman College”. Perhaps I can take some art classes or something like that. There is something I can get into that will enable me to find this fabled companion or at least meet new friends.
