There is also an element, i'll admit, of me being frightened of monogamy. Let's get old and die together. Maybe you can die first. Or maybe me. Day after day, year after year, just me and thee. It's not a turn on for me.
There are likely people out there who are equally as shit as me, and worse, and would take me because that's just what you do. Settle.
But that's never been me. It's like a catch-22 situation. If I like someone, they must be great. And if they're great, they would never like me.
Low self-esteem. Social anxiety. Perhaps some other as yet undiagnosed traits.
I guess there's no-one better to answer the question 'Why am I 35 and still single?' than me.
And that's my answer for now.
