Adapting to being single for life

Following my very long first thread here about being single/virgin at almost age 30 (my 30th birthday is this Thursday), I was wondering about choosing to resign myself to be single for life. It is another path, but I was thinking about how I have a lot of quirks and difficulties that would make pro...

Is there a disorder that is the opposite of anxiety and OCD?

So I have many relatives and family members who seem to act like what seems to me the opposite of anxiety and OCD. In other words, it is almost extreme carelessness combined with getting angry at people who voice concerns about their behaviour. For example, I have many family members who refuse to w...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

Exactly five days remain until my 30th birthday. But I am overseas on holiday right now, and I have not been thinking too much about this issue. I more or less accept that I will enter my 30s being single/virgin. There really is nothing that I can do about it right now, but that is fine. I think tha...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

I have but a little more than two weeks before I turn 30. After that one time over a month ago when I went to a restaurant with that woman who started talking about birth control, I have had no more dates so far. My obsession with numerical significance and statistics tells me that that it is more t...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

That does make sense I suppose. Answering that question could be warranted if the woman is asking it sincerely, and not in a sly way get more information to make fun of me. However, when male acquaintances/friends ask me, especially tech and "bro" types, I think that I should tell them tha...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

I still do not know if I can call it a "relationship", because it was never official. Also, the physical aspect was quite clearly absent. Although she was a chess player like me, many people people in the local chess community considered us "together" although we ourselves did no...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

The past couple of days I tried signing up on ASD dating sites. For some reason, many of them have electronic/coding glitches, and I cannot complete registration. The only site where I was able to create a proper profile was autisticdating.net. Still trying to figure out how it works. This is my fir...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

You say people there are judging you negatively about your situation, I would recommend not discussing how many girlfriends you’ve had or how many people you’ve slept with, unless it’s a best friend or very trusted family member, or therapist. No one I know would discuss this type of thing in gener...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

Are a lot of people in America constantly comparing themselves to others like this? I do it to some extent but this is on another level. I am so glad I’m definitely not a high achiever if it leads to this mindset. I would recommend that you figure out what you really want and go for that, then you ...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

Hi, read most of your post, thanks for sharing. There are a few things about your post that stand out to me. Mainly, you focus a lot on the fact that you're single a virgin. It comes up again and again and sounds like you've put a lot of energy into thinking and feeling like this is the pinnacle of...
