    I can't get a girlfriend-boyfriend because I'm just not into hermaphrodites?

    Really it's because I'm afraid of losing someone who I love again, and it feels like a betrayal to the one who I did love.

    Have you ever seen what happens to those couples though? Because they certainly don't end up with a happy ending skipping into the sunset under a rainbow...
    Try beating their wives (or bullying them), divorce, cheating, taking their problems out on their children and so on...
    Anyone with such an extremely juvenile view on sex isn't ready to have a relationship, simple as that.
    Sorry but I am going to have to disagree. I know multiple couples who have been dating 30 years or more who didn't have sex before marriage who have no marital problems because their relationship was built on respect for themselves and for each other.

    Really it's difficult because I'm afraid to fall in love because the one person I've ever truely loved died very suddenly, and liking anyone else feels like a betrayal.

    Being totally honest, most evangelical groups are so warped under the cloud of religious fanaticism that they don't see the problems in relationships & think everything is a-okay when in fact that is not the case with many evangelical marriages (from personal experience). Instead they just see a 'happy church going couple' and never see what is happening behind closed doors.

    Also look at it like this: Anyone who is a fanatic is not a balanced person. Someone who is not balanced surely cannot be trusted to have a healthy relationship when they cannot even look after themselves. So when you mix two unbalanced people together, that is hardly going to balance out the scales, it's just going to tip it. But the problems are usually never aired due to the shame that would be brought down upon them by the church community, leaving them in a catch-22 situation. ****ing terrible.

    You don't have to be a fanatic to be religious. *facepalm*

    And actually you do know when people are having problems. I don't know what Church you've been to, but it's a very different experience to mine.

    Yes, not directly because of the sex, but because they are more mature and therefore respect one another more.

    Nice strawman - I never said that. However when you let religion interfere with a sensible course of action, that is fanaticism.
    fa·nat·i·cism (f-nt-szm)
    n.
    Excessive, irrational zeal.

    Not sleeping with someone until marriage is completely irrational and exceptionally immature. As I said it goes against what relationship counselors would suggest. Ergo, you are a religious fanatic (evangelical right?)

    Sorry, this place cracks me up....I just wondered why exactly everyone is having so many problems getting a boyfriend or girlfriend?

    So yeh, complete the statement....'I can't get a girlfriend/boyfriend because.....'

    I just wanna see what's stopping you lot from getting someone. I bet it comes down to a lack of confidence, being scared of rejection, or just being a socially awkard dork etc.

    Hopefully I can make you see that these excuses are just excuses and that you can get someone if you believe in yourself a bit more.
    i can't get a girlfriend because her best friend is a ******** who hates the living daylights out of me for no reason. plus i made that up as i'm actually a coward who is scared of rejection
