don't have a girlfriend

I don’t have a girlfriend

“So, do you have a girlfriend?”

“Not really, I don’t.”

“How come?”

“I’ve never really found someone I like.”

“Really? You must have a long list of virtues that you look for in a girl.”

“Not really. In fact, I look for a simple, average girl. My expectations are simple.”

“Then how come you don’t have a girlfriend yet?”

“Do you really wanna know? After all, you’re a girl. And I don’t want to hurt your feelings.”

“How will why you don’t have a girlfriend will hurt my feelings? I don’t understand. Do you hate women?”

“I most certainly don’t, if anything, I respect them.”

“So, what’s the problem?”

“That is the problem.”

“What?”

“I respect women.”

“I’m not sure what you mean. Care to explain?”

don't have a girlfriend

“I respect women, and when it comes to relationships, they don’t want men who respect women.”

“Um, I’m pretty sure it’s the opposite.”

“Oh yeah? Then how come all the guys who treat girls badly have a long list of ex-girlfriends?”

“Well, that’s the reason their list of “ex” is long.”

“Yeah, maybe. But how did they get in the list of being a girlfriend in the first place?”

“Well, you can’t always recognize a person at first..”

“Okay. Then how come those same girls still cry for those same guys who treated them like nothing and didn’t care at all for them? How come every other girl I come across is in either a painful relationship or mourning over their piece of sh|t  ex-boyfriend?”

“You don’t know how their ex-boyfriend was.”

“You’re forgetting, they are the careless, meaningless, worthless bunch of guys who treat women like items and prefer to jump from one woman to another at every opportunity they get. And I’m not the one explaining this, it’s the girls who have been with them.”

“You did a research or something?”

“I most certainly did not. But over the years, I’ve talked to enough girls, been friends with enough girls, and fell for enough girls to draw the conclusion why every other guy gets a girl and I don’t.”

“Why is that?”

“I don’t give them a reason to expect more.”

“I’m sorry, expect what?”

“Love. Care. Everything a girl supposedly looks for in his prince charming.”

“That is everything a girl looks for in a relationship. So what’s the problem?”

“The problem is, girls are addicted to chasing for love and care in a relationship. Apparently, if you give it to them, they get bored. And they move on to someone who can make them chase for it.”

“Hmm. Sounds complicated.”

“It’s contradictory. You look for a loving, caring person, but you don’t care for it when you get ’em. You like guys who treat you like sh|t and call you bi|ch.”

“I definitely don’t like someone who calls me bi|ch.”

“Maybe you do. Can you honestly tell me that you don’t like someone who is bad?”

“Well, ‘bad’ carries a broad meaning…”

“Let me stop you right there. That’s what happens. Guys who don’t care for anything shows up on girls’ lives, and somehow girls get attracted to those guys. I’ve closely looked at enough guys and their relationships (!) to realize how true it is.”

“Maybe not enough. But if you think being bad — whatever you mean by it — makes you attractive to girls, why don’t you try being bad?”

“That’s the problem. I can’t be bad. I was born with a good, caring heart. My mom raised me properly to be gentle and caring to everyone, to be thoughtful, respectful, and loving. Unfortunately, she gave birth to me at a time when these things are taken for weakness.”

“These things are not weakness. They are…”

“Undervalued?”

“Well, maybe.”

“Yeah. I was raised with qualities that are undervalued.”

“Doesn’t make you a bad guy.”

“Exactly.”

“Well, I’m sure you’ll find someone who is looking for these qualities in her man.”

“Says every girl.”

“I don’t know what to say.”

“You got the answer you were looking for. That is precisely why I don’t have a girlfriend.”

    Most women want someone who can afford to support them and a family of two or three kids so if your job is not that great maybe you can try to study for a better one at better pay and then assault women with your loving caring personality. Try this and you may find your ideal girl friend along the way if you socialize enough. Best wishes. Uldis

      Thank you for your comment. As it happens, I do have a steady job and I’m lucky not to have to worry about that. But the problem is with socializing, though. I’ve never been good at socializing and the few times I tried to talk, I turned out to be pretty weird. That’s never the case with people I’m comfortable with. And my attempt to be comfortable around strangers has never succeeded so far.
