@moldy goldie I understand this totally, it's why I've never had a pet as a grown-up: what if I do something terribly wrong? No one would forgive me!
Used to be hairdressers (didn't get my hair cut for 7 years). Now it's internet dating, closely followed by ordering food/drink/etc in public and not having my (thick) accent be understood. This is partially why I do so much online shopping.
@ThatWench The thing that seems obvious to the Team Get It Out Of The Way people is that for Team WTF I'm Still A Virgin At A Socially Advanced Age For It we don't necessarily have the skillz/clues as to how to go about this. If I read 'just go to a bar lol' one more time I'll throw up. I've gone to plenty of bars. Haven't gotten laid.
I really relate to a lot of what Will says here. My numbers: 32 years old, been kissed twice (yes, that's it). And it's not religion or the desire to save myself - I wanted to have sex at 14!
Thanks for doing this. I regularly cycle in and out of despair over it.
