I'm single. And also confused about why everyone is declaring their age.

Your age doesn't make a lack of commitment any less evident!

I get too tense around women and young childern.
To put it in perspective, imagine holding a reactor and praying to God that you don't trip.
Or imagine that young childern are fine China, just waiting to burst into shards of glass.

I'm a nice guy, and I do my part in the community... However, I can't get over my fear
of acting arrogant or clumsy. Gah! At this rate I'm never going to have relationships.

This is a common contradiction. Why can't they be with you through that?


Because most females are a drain on money. Most men who are gentlemen but broke can't afford it.

I'm sure there are exceptions depending on the type of person, but a lot of times that's just how it is.


I take offense to your first statement. Men are just as bad when it comes to money so why should women be at fault. I take it you've had experience of being with a woman whose direction is to drain you. My debts aren't from spending, its from medical bills from my son, so again please don't refer to women being a drain on money unless you know their situations.


You take offense? Look, when you are a gentlemen, you typically do most of the spending. That's how it works. If you aren't one, then that might not be the case. Like I said, there are exceptions.


You think being a gentleman is a title to excuse yourself from spending? Then why complain? However I fail to see what direction you feel this takes regarding any woman being single, since you have bought up money, please enlighten me on how being a gentleman is all about because I have yet to meet a man who is willing to spend money on the other person. Call it bad choices of choosing a man but I never met a man who is willing to go that far and call themselves a gentleman.


I'm not complaining. I'm backing up the statement someone made about not wanting a relationship until they get their ducks lined up.

If there's a person who won't spend money on his significant other, then he probably doesn't fit the definition of being a gentlemen. Which is fine because there aren't many of them any more. Which would explain your experience with men. I'm not a gentlemen myself, and that's why I concurred with the previous statement about not wanting a relationship.


Okay, and I'm the one that stated not wanting a relationship till my "ducks" are lined up. Wouldn't be far to the other person to deal with my mess and demons while waiting for me to care or love them back when I wouldn't be ready.




hmmm..gonna butt in

I did not get in a relationship till my duck were in a row: I had a job, money for games and a permanent roof over my head. As for the boyfriend he would say that he did not get into a relationship till he had those things too. We have been together for five years and I can say we spend money fifty fifty, when we go out, we kinda go with our budget. We make sure to have a house budget, food budget and also entertainment budget. Not that I am saying we are perfect or anything, You just gotta find that person who like "completes you" and believes in the things you believe, also who is willing to see things in your light then force feeding you logic.

To continue on the spending topic: with our entertainment budget we keep up on buying the latest games and also systems if we want, we have money also to go out and eat and watch a movie, if we feel like it. During the beginning of the relationship, we spent on each other. He bought me things, I bought him things, it was a give a take, everything equal. Even to move in together we did things equally. You kinda can call us old souls. but I do kinda agree with some things that are being said, to have a relationship you have to have your ducks in a row, because you're going to be spending! Spending time, money and energy on that other person. You have to be willing to do so happily and willingly.

I don't know who you are, but your post just gave me a little hope for humanity. Thank you for sharing a story that was actually worth the time I spent reading it. Good luck to the both of you.

As for the rest of you that are complaining about relationships (whether it's because you want one or you're frustrated with the one you're in), read this persons posts a few times. Then, think about what you're doing differently. Relationships take effort and a lot of compromise. If you're not willing to put forth that effort, or compromise on things, then don't date. You're just wasting other people's time, as well as your own, and causing everyone unnecessary grief.

And as the counter to that, regardless of how much you like someone, if you feel that they won't put forth the effort for you, that's doomed to fail as well. Trying to make a relationship like that work will just wind up getting you hurt. And don't think you can "change" the other person, or "wait for them to change on their own". Because often times, they won't. And it's not right of you to expect them to.

There's now nearly 7 billion people on this planet. I'm fairly certain that there's somebody for everyone. You just have to take the time and spend the effort to find them.

Is money actually a huge dating issue for some people? Don't get me wrong, my experiences with women has been overwhelmingly negative so far, but it's never been about wasting money and that's never been a barrier I've experienced (or anybody else I know personally). How does that even come about?
