Hey everyone: Dating has always been a problem area for me. I am almost 33 and can count on my hand the number of dates that I have had in my entire life. I have never had sex. Before I started this adventure, I used to think that something was fundamentally wrong with me. Like I lack some secret talent that every other guy out there possesses. The reality is that I have had rare opportunities to sleep around with women who showed interest. However, I never took advantage of these opportunities because something didn't seem right. I know for a fact that there are women out there that find me attractive. I have been thinking about another possibility lately. I am generally not a fan of kids and have no interest in being a father. I am not sure if my position on this will ever change. All I know is that when I walk into a public place and hear loud kids or babies crying, it drives me crazy and makes me grit my teeth. This rage builds up inside of me. I can tolerate it in small doses, but I eventually have to move to another place if things get too bad. I am kind of on the fence about marriage as an institution as well. The problem is that I would still like to go out, date, experience sex, and have a long-term relationship. I think the majority of women out there eventually want to have kids and get married though. I feel like I will be taken out of the running if they eventually find out that I am not interested in kids. So I am wondering if I should even bother trying to date anyone (I have seriously considered hookers, but decided they are not for me).
