it's a difficult thing.

tread carefully, people.

Sometimes I think I can still live a moderately enjoyable life if it never happens. Pick up some extra hobbies, get a pet or two and maybe I'll be lucky and have a few friends who stick around. Other times I'm afraid I'll become that creepy, needy guy that everyone avoids.

It sounds cliche, but it does actually make me feel better that I'm not the only one.

yeah... i'm with ya. and it IS nice to know it's not just me. as i've said before, i'm usually okay. but part of me being okay is the fact that i'm surrounded by friends, many of whom are single. but at this point i am just assuming that they will get married before i do and then they will disappear [either socially, geographically, or both]. i mean this has been the autobiography of my life thus far. no offense meant to the marrieds or anything, you know i love you guys, but there IS a certain sense of sick camaraderie in the We're In This Together mentality.

now, lord knows i'm not pro-catholic by any stretch of the imagination, but sometimes i think i can see how a convent isn't such a repulsive idea. hang out with God and each other with no worries of your friends there leaving for a boy? there's a certain sense of stability there, no?

ah... a call to singleness in community (convent-like) is not a catholic thing... Jesus came up with it. :O)

Have you even remotely considered just innocently browsing match.com? I'm just sayin'. I'm allowed to suggest it because I took the plunge and met my husband there in short order. If nothing else, it can be highly entertaining. We do everything else on our computers. I say put yourself out there sister - you're somebody's dreamgirl. Help him find you. :)

"tread carefully, people."

OkCupid is also kind of fun...

Er, not that I've tried that or anything... I just, uh, heard about it... from a friend...
