While her "friends" mercilessly teased her and tried to coax her into coming out as a lesbian (they really couldn't fathom an happy celibate girl so they thought she was in the closet) she remained dateless. Now she's in the relationship of her dreams with a man she finds attractive, funny, hard-working and shares her interests. And I never imagined her ever dating. She really, really, really wasn't interested in sex, even in her mid twenties. She wasn't a prude--she just wouldn't put herself out there for someone she felt like she was "settling" for. Now I'm in her wedding party as one of her brides maids. So there.
I'm sure not all relationships are like that, but it seems like too much time and effort for me for now. Hell, I hang out with friends about once a month or so; spending every day going out or talking with a date is unfathomable.
Keep this in mind, though...your friends are gonna get some girl pregnant and that's it for them, while you'll still be able to party the shit out of your 20s. High five!
"Hell, I don't even want to date. Hate dealing with other people's crap. Takes time away from me."
Not to mention that I would probably be a bad boyfriend to the ones that people are hooking me up with.
Who think being in a relationship is the most beautiful fucking thing ever and that everyone should be in it too.
Every relationship I've been in before this one, I spent most of the time wishing it would end.

Great first impression. Then all my friends starting saying things like how we should start dating and the like, and it confused me a lot. I haven't talked to him in a good five months.
He was really the first (and probably last) friend I had of the opposite gender.
I already have a head start, if you didn't notice.
