    Incel, Not Virgin...

    I already have a story up about being a virgin, one of the first I wrote when coming to EP. Looking at it now, and reading other people's stories about being a virgin has made me realize that I think the term "virgin" is much too broad. I refers to anyone who has not...

    This Whole Thing....

    This incel problem, is something I can't stop thinking about. It drives/has driven me crazy and gotten me so angry before. I mean, how and why does this happen, and go on for so long? Why me? Is it looks? Lifestyle? Or something else. I can't say I have put in much...

    I Don't Think It'll Ever Change.

    I am 37 years old and have never had a relationship. Never been taken out to dinner, never strolled down the street on a lazy Sunday afternoon holding hands with someone, never been to the cinema with someone, or got up late on a weekend morning and made pancakes for two, for...

    Without the Right Affection and Sexual Contact...

    One can go insane. Look at me, living proof! It's not that I choose not to have sex because of any moral reason, it's because I just don't get asked to...by the right people. No, I'm not ugly or picky, or a *****, because that's what some people have said. I'm not socially...

    I need someone, SOMEWHERE,

    to talk to. I didn't realize until today that other people even recognise Involuntary Celibacy. I've been with my husband for 14 years. Our 10 year wedding anniversary was this month. But for reasons unknown, my husband will not give me human touch. Not even so much as a hug...

    I Don't Really Know Where To Even Begin...

    Other than the fact that this problem, and my either own lazyness or inability to overcome and solve it, has driven me crazy, left me feeling more desperate and empty, and more behind than anyone else it feels like. It hasn't been a happy easy thing for me to just accept. It...

    So Close, Yet So Far Away

    I grew up in a rural Bible Belt part of the country, and although my parents were loving, I found that I could never connect with women there while I was growing up. I went to college, and the situation was entirely different.  But because I was so inexperienced, I was...

    Yes, I'm Still Incel...

    When I created this group as TheRealWoman, I had hoped that things would improve. They haven't. Over a year ago, I gave a lonely male acquaintance a hand job after two drinking sessions, which made him propose marriage. Of course, I said "No. I hope you find someone.". He now has...

    Stifled, Strangled Passion

    Yes I would say I am involuntarily celibate: I don't choose to strictly get along with internationals or just anything but locals but somehow that is how it works. So why is it a great tragedy for a man in his late 20s you ask? Because men hit their peak at 18 while women get...
