"Thanks for the thoughts and replies. Sorry it has taken me a little while to get back online.  I am working on an apprenticeship. Right now it's sort of on hold because it is for a pest control company. Pretty cool job, sweet money, I…"

"I'm going to switch things up a bit. I think you're using this search for a relationship as way to ignore dealing with not being part of any meaningful work.  Don't get me wrong. Love is wonderful and important. But without the…"

Advice needed to obtain a love interest

Ok... I'm not looking to get into a relationship just yet. I know I'm not that great of a prize for the time being.

I'm 30, living with my mother, working in a part time gig in the mean time trying to get my resume and skills up to par... In the mean time I need some food for thought.

Sir replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
"I am not sure they exist, but if they do: are they right? These definitions say they aren't. If people think it's honorable to lie, cheat, and steal, this doesn't redefine "honorable," but only shows their lack of it."
