    I'm 36 and I missed the love train.

    I'll never be married and I'll never have the kind of love that is young and exciting again. it's a negative way to feel but it's my truth. my eyes will never be as innocent as they once we're bc they've seen too much.it sucks but it's true.

    I Really Don't Want To Either

    Perhaps it's because I haven't met the 'right person' yet. I'm in no hurry to meet him either. I like dating though, meeting and getting to know new people. It doesn't get repetitive for me because every guy is different. I'm afraid of getting bored once I get into a...

    I haven't got a boyfriend

    since 3 years ago. It's not because I haven't moved on because trust me, my life has nothing to do with him anymore. It's not that I never find anyone attractive either. But I guess it has something to do with that as well. I mean, I get attracted easily but then I easily back...

    I Doubt It!

    I can't even picture being in love, living with someone happily, being married. I get lonely but I just don't see it ever happening for me. I don't think I am able to trust someone on that level. Maybe someday I'll be proven wrong!

    It's Just Not Going to Happen, Is It?

    It looks like it that I will never get married.  Firstly, there is no man to talk about - I have been single for the past 5 years.  Next, I am at crossroads where career/job is concerned.  It's all a blur for me right now and it really is frustrating.  I never...

    And why do I think that?

    Because I have no desire to. I know a few couples who are utterly miserable in their marriage and I don't want to take the chance of that happening to me.

    I want to, but I doubt it will ever happen

    for me. People lose interest in me quickly and find someone less boring and more attractive. I must be a complete loser if I can't ever keep anyone in my life.

    Doesn't Bother Me

    Marriage, no marriage, whatever. As an asexual I do not require sex, and beyond that marriage would bring companionship, and I am independent enough not to require that either.

    I Don't Want to Get Married...

    because I really don't see the point.  Even when a relationship is going well, marriage doesn't seem to make it better - usually it's the opposite!  Plus I see very view of examples of people who stay HAPPILY married for long periods of time.  I'd rather be in an...

    first date, or a boyfriend. Let's not forget that in grade school I was never asked to a school dance so yeah, I don't think I will ever get married. I also think I will either end up a lonely cat lady or nevermind.
