I want a boyfriend.

A husband. Kids. Someone who hugs me every morning and every night.

I know many of you don't understand why. You're past it. I don't get NOT wanting those things, so I guess we're on the same page.

I'm not lonely, or sad, or any of those other things they say you should be if you want a man in your life. I just want someone to love me and for me to love him back. I'm feeling more motivated to find someone lately. If only they knew...the next decent guy to give me a chance would be an awfully lucky guy.

But no one seems to want to give me a chance. So frustrating.

I hear you--I may be past the kids stage, but not past the stage of wanting a man in my life.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting a boyfriend and admitting it. Wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a world where everyone was that honest about everything?

Yep. I'm dealing with a lot of dishonest people right now- friends, students, their parents, colleagues- and it's another thing I don't get.

I've always wondered why it's so hard just to tell someone you like them. It's not a huge deal. In fact, it's a compliment. Even when guys I'm not interested in show interest (politely), I'm flattered. The truth is, though, that the guys I've expressed interest in lately seem too into themselves to care. I've been rejected way too much. Taking that chance seems too big of a leap right now.

Hmmm...I don't see that, Marina. Most of the time it seems like a lot of the women here aren't really interested in finding someone to commit to. It feels like I'm the only one sometimes. Everyone else is at least getting dates, but rejecting a lot of the guys. That's not the case with me. I know it's hard finding a good guy, but with the amount of dates some of you are getting, there has to be a decent guy in the bunch. At least one worth giving a try. That's why it really does seem like I'm in the minority here. I truly do want to find a good guy to marry and have kids with, and I don't have the luxury of rejecting so many men.

I really hope you'll meet someone good soon. I mean what else can we do except hoping ?

People deal with unmet goals in several ways.

Not getting dates here, either, and definitely want a relationship. Not into FWB or ONS either.
