So basically I'm a 21 year old guy living in England. And I have never had a relationship. And now I'm worried I never will.
So this all started a few days ago when I started to watch ‘The New Normal’. Basic premise is two gay guys having a baby together with a surrogate. Now this got me thinking about me and my future relationships. I see the two characters and wish with all my heart that I was in a happy stable relationship like them.
I know they are older, possible thirties, and I know I have time. I’m finishing university this year but really want to do my masters. And of course to keep costs down I will live at home.
And then if I want my doctorate that’s another three to four years! So I will be about 26 when I leave home! I feel this is too late to start my adult life.
Right now I'm trying to get myself fitter, slimming down and really starting to take an interest in my appearance. The problem is I find that most of the gay community, not all, is centred on looks. Like when you’re young you have to be thin, or have a six pack to fit in.
To be honest I just wanna know has anyone else felt like this? Like you are never going to find that one special guy? Or ever have a date?
Much appreciated for any replies or helpful words of wisdom.
