"My family thinks I'm ____" (3)

Fill in the blank as appropriate. Has this thought ever crossed your mind? And if it has, how do you deal with it?

I'm in my late twenties and I've had a total of one relationship in my life. It was quite serious and went on for a few years, but other than that, I've been unattached. To be honest, if it had been entirely up to me, I wouldn't have even been with that girl - she was the one who pursued me. Every time we went to bed, I felt like I was performing a duty that I took no pleasure in.

So I'm happy to be single again. And I'm not really lonely, because I haven't desired any woman for years now. I've even been on a couple of dating matchmaking bullshit things at the insistence of family members, but none of the women there did a single thing for me. Of course my family is hounding me now, and I'm pretty sure my father thinks I'm gay. Can anyone relate to feeling different, like you're a freak?

I can definitely relate. When I was younger my family really wanted me to find a nice guy, date him and marry him, and probably have kids. That really isn't my speed, and they didn't understand. Since I found out I can't have children, they got a little less pushy about it

Really, it's just important that you realize it's your life, you can do whatever makes you happy. If you're not lonely and if you want to be single, that's your deal. Others opinions don't really matter. (I mean, they do to a certain extent but..)

Overall it's just someone judging your choices.
And it isn't and shouldn't be an issue that should effect your decisions.

Once again, it's your life, not anyone else, and whatever makes you happy makes you happy.

My girlfriend and I got that one time towards my bro. For years, he hung out with so many girls but didn't want to date any (unless he was forced to). One day, I was driving him around town when I asked him about an old MySpace friend looking for a roommate. When I mentioned it to him, the first thing he said was: "Is she hot?"

Well...that answered our question...
