    The Impossible Dream

    20 and a half years old and never even had a guy have a crush on me, let alone a boyfriend. I guess my fear of being single forever is legit.

    If I ever become single forever, I'm going to have 3 dogs. 5 sex toys and a big house. Kids maybe. If I had kids my sex toys would be hidden of course.

    I think whoever created this group is a stereotypical male chauvinist who's obviously intimidated by feminine competition. Male like that belong in the gutter.
