Thanks for the responses, advice, and encouragement everyone, sorry to go all DairyChartz on you, I should know better by now than to post when I'm feeling down but I guess that's one aspect of what I mean when I say I don't feel like I've matured, despite my best efforts I'm still quite impulsive and have trouble controlling my emotions. I all too often say or post things in an outburst of anger, sadness, or excitement instead of thinking it through.
Feeling a bit better today though.
Do you have family/friends with children?
If raising you own full time isn't an option, it can be very fulfilling to be involved in the development of those close to you.
I actually work with kids as a career, I'm a mentor for children with autism. In that capacity I work in both classrooms and support groups as well as on camps, events, and such. And it is indeed very rewarding. I guess I just still have that biological urge to pass my genes on.
You do not need encouragement, like me, you need to find things you love to do, and go for it, there's plenty to get excited about, new consoles are on the horizon, who needs women that will probably ask you to not play games anyway? And if you have kids, you need to quit videogames altogether at least until they are grown up.
If someone tells you you will find someone eventually and to give it time and so on, they are not helping you, they are setting you up for disappointment.
Those are not your friends. You need to hear reality, learn to accept it, learn to move on with life and enjoy other million amazing things you can do with your life.
I'm actually happy now years after that I didn't get marry and kids, because I managed to travel and save lot of money, bought my own 3 bedroom house, fully paid, could never do that if I had a woman and kids, I see my brother married for 12 years, struggling everyday to get enough money to survive, working morning to night with no light at the end of the tunnel, and then I look at myself with extra money in the bank, thinking on taking 6 month holiday per year.
Trust me, being single is great, specially if you are from united states or Uk where women are horrible, they just empty your wallet, they can't cook, don't like to clean, basically you will work double to sustain her.
