I'm pretty much fine without one. I recognize there are several downsides to not having a girlfriend, but as with most things in life there are upsides as well. I can move wherever I want, spend my time as I please, and make decisions without consulting her.
One thing I really see as a benefit is that a handful of expenses can be reduced if I have a girlfriend such as living space.
A significant issue with me is I don't connect well emotionally with others. I can get along well with most people, but having some deep emotional connection that girls mostly look for is not something I do. Also flirting and intimacy make absolutely no sense to me. Girls have bluntly thrown sex on the table before and I just don't bite at all.
The thing I'm really afraid of is that I'll be way too far down the road I'm going to really change myself for the better for someone I value. Also that the older you get, I'm 25, the slimmer the pickings get as the percentage of damaged, selfish, emotionally volatile people goes up.
>>717259976 whoops reading this makes me sound like an oxymoron. I'm fine with not having a girlfriend if I haven't met someone I actually like. I'm picky. But if someone does come along then I'd like to be able to put myself out there which I'm not sure I can do.
>>717257367 I do have a girlfriend, we've been dating for 5 months and I told her I loved her and she said finally I was waiting for you to say that and then we kissed. I genuinely think she is the girl I'm going to marry
>>717259941 honestly if you're dating someone like that, you should drop her. You want to date someone who can stand on her own two feet. If she can't then she'll just be a burden. Life is a lot better when you put two solid incomes together.
>>717257367 Fat, balding, have a sweating problem, small dick, cutting scars, shitty personality, don't know how to communicate on a personal basis with normies, scared of women and relationships and intimacy, hate them, don't even try, turned down a couple when i was younger.
>>717257367 I'm 32 but I like my independence and have a mix of girls to get laid with or hang out/ socialise with on demand. If I ever want to travel overseas or go away for the weekend, I can normally find a girl to keep me company. Don't really have any problem finding new women...but sometimes I'm not sure if I have an awesome life or a pathetic one :( I'm not sure if those in couples would choose my life if they could or all those people genuinely want to be in 1:1 couples forever.
>>717257367 Because I don't want children and this leaves a very small pool of women. Also the risk of being financially screwed in a divorce/ break up seems huge there days. Then to top it all off, I believe most people cheat and it's only going to get worse as new things like tinder come along. I enjoy dating someone for 6-12 months, but it inevitably leads to some type of permanent arrangement that doesn't seem sustainable.
>>717257367 Because I hold higher standards for myself; I'm ugly yet fit, and the only women who find interest in me are slovenly or damaged. Hell, I turned 21 a little while ago, and what have I turned up with? Absolutely nothing; the farthest I've ever been with a girl is hand holding in eighth grade. I really hate my life
single fag here been single for more than 18 years. > nb4 this dude is only ~18 years old I am 37 years old I go for the pump and dump proposition.
From my perspective, when it comes to a relationship, at least in most cases, the male takes on most of the risk in a relationship. While females only really take on an emotional risk, the males take on not only emotional risk, but financial, and if kids are involved, more financial risk coupled with more emotional risk from being prevented from seeing one's own children.
So I choose to live the "single" life, that is not to imply sexless. Just booty calls, if she starts to get too serious, I say goodbye and find another to add to the roster.
>>717270923 By the time anyone sees ur dick, you've already "won"....dunno why people get so worked up about their tiny dicks. If you make out and then leave to put a condom on then most won't even see your dick. Then once your in, they can't really tell size THAT well
>>717271244 I am choosing the same kind of life....life is good for a free male in his twenties/ thirties , but I do worry that this life style isn't sustainable when we are old and ugly. Female take on the risk of being strung along without getting children or not being able to marry late age. These are substantial core identity risks for them.
Typically speaking, men tend to gain value with age, we tend to make more money the older we get, and we remain sexually viable for much longer into our lives. Due to the above mentioned, we also tend to be more stable as we age. Meaning as older men we have the ability to attract younger women.
>>717271612 (Cont.) I almost hit it off with this girl. She's really nice and we have really good chemistry, but we never synced up. Granted she's about 2 1/2 years younger than me. I'm 18 and she's about to turn 16. If things did work out, do you /b/ros think the age gap would be weird?
>>717257367 >I'm a fat. >I'm a neurotic coward. >I'm not a handy man. >I'm hopelessly a middle class professional. >I'm short, bald, and have average intelligence. >My dick is on the small side of average. >My experience with women is lack luster.
Though none of these things should limit me from having a girl friend, the one thing that does is my experience with girlfriends. Over the years in a hand full of relationships I have learned the following:
>I would rather be alone by myself than be alone with a girlfriend beside me.
>I would rather not endlessly disappoint and hurt them because I don't want to have children.
>I would rather not disappoint or hurt them because I don't want to lose my rights to their whims in a domestic situation.
>I know the kinds of women that would go for a guy like me and I am not pleased with my options.
>I know that sex/lust fades fast so that looks are not enough.
>I know that without looks, a personality is not enough. And that you can't fuck and go down on someone you find sexually repulsive indefinitely with out them finding out and getting hurt.
>If decreasing amounts of increasingly valueless sex are all that I am to get out of a relationship, it's at a really really steep cost.
>>717273580 That guy is ugly and greasy looking but I bet you he is wicked smart and quite successful and she is probably not all that smart and not as successful. Never forget that. Women always choose partners that are better than themselves. If you are their equal, watch out, they will throw you under the fucking bus the minute they figure that out.
engineering major. campus is ~75:25 guy:girl, classes are 97:3 guy:girl. I also hate going out to parties so I don't meet many new people, much less any new girls. I'm pretty happy just hanging out with my friends though
Because even though I'm above average in looks, and have a personality I'm fucked when it comes to meething new people. They either are the new age Libtards or are something I'm not looking for.
Example: Good looking girl and me get chatting, they turn out to be a feminist, I can't stand that shit, so I don't go further. OR Example 2: Me and cute girl get talking, girl turns out to be a smoker or wants kids. Neither are things I like, or want. So fucked there too.
Mix that with me working night shift, and not a drinker... and meeting women is nearly imposible.
I'm: A. Fat B. Poor C. Dull D. Autistic E. (this isn't really a reason but i'm gonna include it anyways) I had a girl, she was bat shit crazy, thought she was Asian, she was stupider then hell, and she cheated. She ruined my Rep in high school, and I haven't had a girl since.
