I don't think you will be alone are only 23. You have ages yet.

The whole relationship thing can be very frustrating...from now on, I won't give up but I won't fret if nothing happens either. I guess Jim and Tom are right in that I'll just take a break for now.

Getting settled in

It has been 2 years for me almost since my ex and I broke up , and sinow I was social with a lady.
I know us humans supposed to let it go and move on . But I guess we have trouble to do so. And I can't understand why is it that way, it is what it is I guess. I know this girl and we been friends for 8 years , here is the catch ; she lives in vancouver about 8 hours away from me. She is very sweet and good head on her shoulders and knows about my dyspraxia, just a little not much but it looks like she does not care she sees me for me and tells me I'm an awesome person.

He talked on Facebook mesanger a lot, 3 times a week and then my anxiety hits and some times once a week. I don't want to keep breaking the pattern though cuz of anxiety gets in the way , and she looses interest of talking to me, she is beautiful to me and we click it seems. Never talked on the phone before lol I know eh , friends for that long and never once talked on a phone . It's my fault cuz ci don't really like to talk on a phone much. But still I want to step it up a bit . I think she knows I like her but then again I don't want my mind to play tricks on me .

Anyways I got her a gift for Christmas , she's been threw a lot this year with her aunt passed away from cancer now her niece is fighting for sacoma cancer also and struggling with her school to have a better career in between and just bad relationships in the past. So because she sticked in there and graduated still threw that hard time , I decided to get her something nice for her.

I gotten her birth stone which is ruby unique knecklace. The simple of the ruby suited her for its her stone of birth and the meaning of the stone also. I got it reasonable price I was supprised .
Anyways I made her a greatings short clip saying how proud I am she graduated and hanged in there and wished her a happy holidays. I hope she like's it and not be to to overwhelmed.
I could of hold off , but the time was perfect and I had a hunch this will make her feel special well with out it anyway's she is already special. She makes me laugh smile and we help each other out when he both are having issues sin life. But Im little bit scared I think . Cuz us dyspraxics I guess find it hard to find an entrance point in some cases. But I gonna try to go with the flow.

* A bit of a long time bump on this thread for I have news.

Online dating has finally succeeded for me and I am now in a relationship. Yes an actual relationship where I get to hangout with my girlfriend and do all the relationship type things.

We're both quite shy and inhibited but we've approached things together with openess and honesty. We've gone from struggling even to hold hands to now 'canoodling' on my sofa.

Although I had never given up hope I do think that I had stopped believing that anything like this could happen for me. And then suddenly it did when I was least expecting it.

Felix and Tom, if you're still waiting for your time, then please never give up hope. Simply be youself as somewhere there will be someone who deserves you and when it happens it will be worth all the waiting for.

I'm feeling incredibly blessed and lucky right now.

Delighted to hear of your good news and I'm sure your girlfriend feels equally blessed and lucky too

My love life has still yet to lift off though I do try to remain optimistic even if the light at the end of the tunnel sometimes seem to have been shot out. :-({|=

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.
