Indeed, when someone goes for a pretty girl just because they want some kind of emotional validation, it poisons the entire relationship in the beginning. Been there, done that… ended up hurting a girl that I really admire, and I’ll probably regret it for the rest of my life.

With that said, though, I do remember: once I worked in a convenience store and met a guy who pretty much survived on minimum wage and depended on borrowing from his mates to keep ends met. Yet, because he knows all the ways to have fun, never lose his cool around girls, know all the people in all the bars, etc, he can get all the pretty girls to sleep with him. I kid you not–I talked to some of the girls myself.

I mean, put yourself in my shoes. Here I am saving up money, cutting off expenses (there are weeks I survived with less than $15 a week on food), and studying the hardest I can despite everything that had happened to me–and you tell me that this *loser* can get girls (7 or 8′s) while I have to settle for someone I’m not attracted to, just because I’m not “fun”, easily lose my nerve around girls and haven’t ever gone clubbing. Sorry, but I don’t think I can take that. I’d rather stay single for the rest of my life than to accept this. What is so wrong with sacrificing now so that you can be the kind of man to support your wife financially and emotionally?

“So, you’re set for life from county pageants and Sears catalog? Good luck with that.”

I guess you overlooked freelance money & savings which come from two jobs- cna & bartending.

Neither are my long term goal as I am currently getting my Bachelor’s in Nursing.

Something I did not mention was my stash of 20 grand from odd jobs from my teenage years.

Yeah I think I have more than enough to afford 2 daughters.

Thanks for your somewhat snarky attempt at a dose of reality but reality is why I chose my adopt/in vitro path.
