First off, hello! May I welcome myself back? I haven't logged onto this site since 2017. At any rate, I'm excited to be back. ANYWHO: I have a boyfriend whom I adore.Our relationship is fine and not in any danger. If there's one BIG problem is is that we are both lonely. Sure, we have each other, but having friends is a huge part of our lives that we are missing out on. Neither of us have really kept in touch with anyone from high school. Our lives are...unique. I never went to college and he went to college out of state for a year, so no college friends either. I work for a small company and he manages a local chocolate shop where most of the staff are teenage girls. In a city with a population of over 250,000, the gay community is, well, tired. Most of the active community here is now 30 years old and over, settled down and not doing much. There is a severe lack of gay people our age. Heck, there is a lack of just PEOPLE our age. Unfortunately, this city struggles to retain its youth. Everyone in their 20's leaves for new experiences and comes back in their 30's to settle down. We have each other...yet we are very alone. Has anyone else ever dealt with this?
