Do you think there are still gentlemen left in this world?
I know of course there are SOME, but do you all think that there are a lot? I only ask because I'm 24, haven't dated anyone in about 4.5 years. I think I'm scared that no one will accept me for who I am. Funny thing is I'm actually a well mannered woman, who is extremely sweet, and shy. However.......when I younger (16, 17, and 18) I tried to do everything in my power to rebel against my overprotective parents. Unfortunately that included getting tattoos. Yep, I was a dumbass. Now I have these horrid tattoos that take up my entire back and I'm self conscious about wearing anything that requires my back to be out. On top of being scared to date, I'm also scared to death of sex. I think sex should be beautiful, but I'm too damn self conscious to even enjoy it because of my stretch marks, plus bad tattoos. Do you think there are men out there that understand you may have had a stupid past and will overlook it (even if the "evidence" is still there)? Sad thing is imo I'm pretty and I'm in shape (despite the stretch marks). Men ask for my nubmer, but I always end up refusing because:
1. I'm scared of letting people down
2. I'm scared of showing people the real me
3. All they want is sex (and they make it known).
