I'm 29 years old and have never had a girlfriend. I'm financially stable and don't live a dishonest lifestyle. I think I could attract a girlfriend if I tried. However, all of the relationships I have seen over the years involve women who are manipulative, penny pinching, horrible people who try to grind their husbands into dust for fear of them leaving. As a result, I want a relationship, but with something other than the modern “independent” woman. I’ve seen gay relationships as well and, as a whole, gay guys are even worse than women. I’m not sure what to do so I’ve been falling in love with characters from books and movies.
