I haven't gone on a date since forever. I live at home still NOT for reasons because I'm in financial disarray or don't have a job or anything that might categorize me as a loser, but because I moved back home a few years ago so that I could have a job (which actually fell through after the company financially imploded, so now I'm stuck at one I actually hate and didn't think I would be at for this long. My goal is to find a new job and hopefully move altogether, but these days, nothing is guaranteed.) Fast forward four years and my social life is dead as evidenced by posting this on a Saturday night. I live in a typical suburban sprawl with no major cities with a life to it within two hours of driving, everyone around me that's in my age range is either married with kids or a complete disaster and it really sucks being forced into not having a social life.
I've tested the waters of dating sites, but think OK Cupid is probably the one with the most depth to it and accuracy. Even with filling out my profile as much as I can, though, I'm afraid that because of the type of area I live in, the matches are pretty boring or look like the trashiest cast members of Teen Mom all grown up. Throw into the mix that it's really important to me that I find someone who has relatively similar interests in what the world outside would categorize as non-traditional music tastes, and it's pretty discouraging.
I have no idea what to do anymore. It's like I'm stuck in purgatory and have no idea when I'm going to be able to do more with my life other than sleep, work and enjoy my self-entertaining hobbies, but otherwise might as well not exist. I'm starting to feel like those people who you meet who are in their mid-40s and are hopelessly single is going to be me in 15 years.
