I feel like there are too many social pressures to meet most of the expectations driven by popular culture... besides, my lousy job and other factors make it nearly impossible to find, much less maintain, any meaningful relationships.
Anybody else find themselves in the same situation, or am I the only ape here left grooming themselves in the corner?
Horseshit! You are just travelling in the wrong circles. I see nothing wrong with you (you might be batshit crazy, but that doesnt show in pictures LOL).
You dont shop for diamonds at the gas station, dont look for life partners among the denizens of depravity. If you want to find someone to share something meaningful with... do what you like and surround yourself with like minded people. It will just take time. Be strong and be yourself :)
Well, yeah, but that's why the property taxes are so low. When you have an area with a lot of poor people and not a lot of sustaining industry, the land values are going to be very low.
Heck, you want to talk about low taxes, look at Alaska. The state government pays you to live there. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live there, though.
