I'm 31 years old, never married, no children and the longest relationship I've had as an adult is about 3 months. I don't have much problem getting women to go out with me, but before I even realize it I fall into the "Friend Zone" and I have learned (I think) that once in this zone there is no coming out of it.
Yet, the irony is that a good solid friendship, to my way of thinking, is the sort of excellent basis a good relationship needs. Yet, women don't seem to think this way. I digress...
I can only conclude that as a human being, I'm romantic poison. I don't understand why. I'm good looking, intelligent, funny, tall, creative and generous. I may not be very succesful or have a lot of money, but I know perfectly great women who have given themselves over to guys with less.
I've been spending a lot of time lately with a young lady who is everything I'd ever want in a woman. It's not meant to be, I know this, but she's showing me what to look for. Yet, I know how rare it must be to find someone like her and when I think about the odds, I'm nearly crying myself to sleep on a nightly basis.
The older I get, the more I wonder what in the hell I'm alive for if I can't be a good husband and/or father for anyone?
Are some of us just meant to be alone, or am I somehow choosing this? I don't know how much more sexual rejection I can take in my life.
As for "The right girl will come along someday" please refrain from this tired old cliche. I've been hearing it for too long now.
