There must be something I am missing though. Every time the subject of me having a girlfriend or a wife comes up, people always say that they can't imagine it or they don't think I will ever have one. Something about me, makes a lot of people think that. But what?

Are these relatives of yours?

No, just people I know. I think all of my relatives started dating way earlier than I did and probably assume I am gay because they've never seen me with a girl before.

Then I am forced to ask how do these people know what is in your future? Most people can not even see past their eyebrows.

They don't know what is in my future, but it could be what girls think of me right now which is being a hindrance.

They change from hour to hour and what they think is really not that important.

You would have to move out of the groups you are in to have immediate results. If you do not then you will have to wait until you are older.

Hopefully, there you will have a much wider and better choice.

I thought the same when going into sixth form and it didn't really make much difference...

Although H did end up liking me, but the only way I found out was because she found my e-mail and started sending eleventy-billion messages. I will probably not be in such a favourable situation for a long time, possibly not ever again.

Well, look at it this way, you can always consider the priesthood.

So what do you plan for your future? Will you be like the phantom of the opera? Staying hidden in a large theatre and going after Emmy Rossum?

I do tend to stay indoors most of the time (almost all of the time) -- which greatly inhibits my dating opportunities.

I spend a great deal of time indoors too but not by choice. The townspeople hate and fear me and wish to set me on fire.

I don't think there is anyone wanting to set me alight...

Then you have a free pass to get out there and mingle with those townspeople. They are only dangerous when carrying lighted torches...

I think I can do that during Freshers' week at UCL -- strike while the iron is hot...

Freshers week? Is that for freshman?

I guess so. Apparently it's just the first week without lectures where you just go out and meet people, go to icebreaker events, and of course there are many stories involving alcohol and partying and copious amounts of intercourse.

Then head right on over there and tell the girls you meet that you are either Brad Pitt or a famous rapper that no one knows about.

Given that a lot of the students will be international Asian students with terrible knowledge of British culture, I think you may be on to something there...

Bring a musical instrument that you can not play, that will convince them.

See you in a bit.
