Am I crazy , abnormal? 26 and never had a GF since age 13. Nothing wrong with my attractiveness either, my family are all well off in that way. I have chosen to isolate myself a long while and am now regretting it. Missed out at uni and made a mess of it, now career not going anywhere fast and lack a real meaningful special connection with any woman. It's kind of sad I think, I dunno what to do, it seems hard to meet people and like the possibilities are quite limited, everything feels stagnant here in my hometown and I'm gutted that I didn't make the break away from home work..

i think you need some professional help then..


Why did you isolate yourself? There must be a reason and that could be affecting all aspects of your life.

The important thing is though that at 26 it is not too late to do all the things you have yet to succeed in, university, family, good career. I had a 26 year old in my block last year who was a fresher...

Why don't you try and spice it up a little? Try something new, save up and go travelling, join a club, try out a new sport, start a hobby. Anything? I know this is a pretty standard reply, but you won't get anything you want in life by sitting back and waiting for it to happen. And I would really suggest trying out one of the above, for me, taking up a sport and becoming part of a team really helped me get through some stuff I didn't want to deal with because I knew i was always part of something and had people I liked around me.
What do you want to do? Like the poster above said, its not to late to do what you want with your life, you're only 26!

Yeah but not close. I just find it easier not to be too involved with people, socialising becomes too self-conscious and too much of a pressure

well mate theres your answer. how do you expect to find a lady if you have this approach. dont mean to be rude, but your current position is due to yourself.
put yourself out there.

He has a point.
If you're not prepared to be social your chances are pretty slim. You have to be in it to win it they say...

You have to take a chance with your close friends. I believe it's more hard to find a special someone if you're isolated from everyone else. I understand that you become self-conscious when with friends, but that will hopefully fade away, and, they are your friends; regardless of not being close. You have nothing to be afraid of with them.

If you start going socialising with friends, your confidence will automatically grow and, naturally, you will start meeting new people (through your friends as well). I know it must be hard for you, but when you're with friends, try and comfort yourself. Try to be at home, and don't feel pressured to do anything. Say what you feel and do what you feel around them.

One step at a time...
