I am struggling with depression. I have had trouble with it all my life, but I manage it fairly well due to closely watching my mood. Talking about my feelings helps and so I am here.
I have been having trouble dealing with my complete lack of a dating life. I have not been with a woman in over 4 years, partially because I don't believe in casual sex. I am looking for a relationship. Where I am living I can't find women who have the qualities I am looking for, primarily honesty, intelligence, & compassion. Every woman I meet here that might have those qualities is married. The single women here I wouldn't want to touch even if I believed in casual sex. Many are.... not very choosy as to who they sleep with. Many having several partners a week. A lot of them stay with or like guys with a history of abusing or just demeaning women. Why is it the guy that respects women and wants a equal partnership relationship can't find a woman. It makes me want to SCREAM an cry all at the same time.
