    I guess your profile name kind of defines you. If you have nothing constructive or helpful to answer with, then keep your juvenile comments to yourself. Thank you!
    I totally agree with you !!!!! =)

    Well first of all, have you got a basement or attic?

    Have you got a chain and padlock, or at least a tight rope?

    Have you got some chloroform or at least done rophynol?

    These are essential items.

    Try joining a soc at uni / college or something to meet new people to club / hang out with / potential females?
    It sounds to me the problem here is with your friends coz they're neglecting you a bit - not fun. I know what that's like as i've lived in a house of couples before at uni.
    I got involved in voluntary work around my local area and made new friends, also joined the uni gym and swimming club
    And my housemates soon got jealous of me spending time away from the house without them and apologised

    EDIT: why the neg?

    I really don't get the whole "dating sites are for losers" thing. Most of my friends have met someone off a dating site at some point. Might have been true like 10 years ago, but dating sites are now a perfectly normal way to meet a partner.
    As a man, I'd consider it a last resort after many, many years. Even so i still would think back to my experience with it all. I came to the conclusion that I'd rather be single then waste my time with women on dating sites. its too alien.

    I was thinking of signing up to a dating site, but then I feel that that's for people who are desperate, or you have to be a total loser to want to go on a dating site.

    anyway, any advice?
    Do not, under any circumstances join a dating website, not even plentyoffish (which is free). Waste of time, effort and you feel like a used paper bag in a window shop after putting something of your life for someone to glance over and deem you're not 'the one' which sadly, most women are after on those sites.

    I consider myself a better catch than most of the guys on websites anyway.

    Just need to chill out. Why's it so great to be tied down young anyhow? Just have some fun with any sex. They might get hitched young and have a kid, and then years later you'll be pleased you dind't get all tied down young.

    I didn't say I was feeling sorry for myself, but it's not easy to "get out there and look" when I have no one to hang out with or go to a club/bar with.

    Are you annoyed that your friends have girlfriend or are you annoyed that they aren't spending time with you? Because these are two different things.

    I'm 21 and single and have recently moved from the UK to the Netherlands, where my colleagues are all a bit older than me and have girlfriends so naturally they tend to spend their weekends with them. I personally don't want a girlfriend, but having a larger social circle would be more ideal.

    My suggestion is that you indulge in your hobbies more often through clubs/socieities on weekends. Surely you will have more fun that way?

    It'll come, though it doesn't seem like it. These things are unexpected you can't force it. For now, find a new hobby or something to keep you busy, maybe if you do something related to a hobby you will find someone you like there as you will both have the same hobby for one...

    Ok, first of all, I'm not looking for sympathy. Basically, all my friend's (well, the close one's anyway) are in relationships, but I am the only one who is actually single. I am starting to feel neglected and lonely, but my friend's are all going out with their girlfriend's on a weekend, therefore I rarely get to see them any more. To be honest, I don't have the biggest social circle, but I have a handful of close friend's, and they are the friend's who are all dating now. Even my friend who is single the same as me, he recently met a girl on Blackberry messenger, got texting, and he's met up with her twice already. I mean he's not in a "relationship" yet, just going on dates with her, but he's the type who is desperate for a girlfriend. Don't get me wrong, I am not desperate for a girlfriend, I guess it's just seeing all my mates in relationships or dating that makes me feel like I would like someone too.

    I am a reasonably good looking guy, probably above average in looks, I also have a good body, sense of humour, and overall I would say I'd be a good catch for someone, but it's just worked out that It hasn't happened that way yet. I was thinking of signing up to a dating site, but then I feel that that's for people who are desperate, or you have to be a total loser to want to go on a dating site.

    anyway, any advice?
    You obviously have no confidence, self-esteem or inner happiness then, as you value completeness by the being in a relationship or not.

    That pretty much sums up my experience with dating sites. Complete waste of time. Out of their millions of members there are about 30 who are the right gender/age for me and live near me. Out of them there about 10 who are actually interested in dating someone from the site, and 0 out of them who are interested in dating me. Plenty of fish my ass.

    Not really. I mean yes, I'd be happier if I had some single friends to hang out with, but now they're all in relationships, so I'm saying it's difficult to meet people because I don't get the chance to go out often enough.

    Yep, I understand. But to be honest, 'quality' prostitutes aren't in Thailand they are just cheap. If you want big boobs and bums then I would rather go to Amsterdam. I am Thai, by the way.

    ME LIKEY MONEY

    ME SUCKY SUCKY FOR 2 DOLLAH

    Or perhaps he's referring to the thousands and thousands of women(/boys you can't tell with people from Thailand) who are desperate to fleece rich Westerners for all they're worth in exchange for a visa and a few blowjobs.
    You are a ****. The world would become a nicer place without you.

    All prostitues like money and only like 10% of them actually do that for visa. Majority remain as a prostitute in Thailand. :P

    People who go to Thailand or any other country for prostitutes are basically those who are too old/ugly to even get a gf in his own country. :P

    One of them is probably you.

    Go to hell. I don't even see the point of your post.

    you should have quoted me. I nearly didnt knwo you replied that to me.

    Hmmm, Phuket, Pattaya...Bangkok ..

    To be honest, all the tourist destinations that associate with sea and beaches.

    You wont find any of them if you go to the tourist destinations that mainly relate to temples, traditions and cultures. ;P

    Why ask?
