I don't need or want your sympathy/pity. There's always the possibility of finding that special someone but I have standards that I won't budge on (no usage of recreational drugs ever, no heavy drinkers, no smokers, someone who has had sex with at least 20 women, comes from a dysfunctional family). Some may say I should just be grateful for any man's attention but I don't see it that way. Besides, at this point in my life, I'm taking care of an elderly mother and that's not exactly an attraction for men. Brian, I'm most definitely NOT homosexual and never have been. It's funny that not too long ago, it was considered honorable to be a virgin or at least understandable. Now, any adult who is a virgin is expected to hang their head in shame. Well, guess what? I'm not ashamed of my decision at all. I can still function every day. If a great man comes along, and we hit it off, then sex may happen. In the meantime, I'm taking care of what I need to take care of.
