Am I really being too picky?
Here is the situation that I am in; I haven't been in a relationship for 5 years, or laid for 3, YIKES!!!
All in all, I'm ok with that, I have enjoyed being single, it has allowed me opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise had should I need to consider the needs of the other person as well.
But.... I feel that it's time. Time to end the dry spell, time to find someone who I can have a strong companionship with, time to feel a little more adult.
I'm 24, male, college educated, attractive, pretty outgoing, funny, witty, and intelligent. These things I know, and am told by friends. But for the life of me I can find no one who interests me.
So my question is, am I being too picky? I have high standards, sure. But I'm not all that focused on looks, if you know what I mean. I'm looking more of an intellectual connection that I just can't seem to find anywhere.
As for ending the dry spell. My friends all suggest "Slaying the dragon before I get my princess". While it's a decent thought on how to get my groove back, the "dragons" that my friends have attempted to set me up with just feel like too far of a compromise of my integrity. Not that they aren't nice, but no attraction in anyway shape or form just feels like I would be compromising my integrity too much. I should at least feel good about what I have done, right?
Anyways, let me know your thoughts, I'm really interested in outside perspectives.
