I couldn't afford college 14 years ago, so I sure as shit can't afford it now. And loans? NO. I'm not spending the next decade (or two) of my life paying off school loans.

I'm stuck.

Hey Jack, did I say college? No, I said look at vocational options in your area. There are vocational schools where skills can be learned in a year; there are junior colleges where job skills can be mastered in less than two years. Most adults in those schools still work and go to school. Those schools may only require a small loan that could be paid off quickly.

"I'm stuck." You have options and choices you could make to change your life. Yes, you are stuck...self-stuck.

.....My recommendation is go out and rent a DVD of William Wyler's 1965 film, THE COLLECTOR, to see exactly how it's done.

If ever a bad taste prize is offered for any given post to a thread, this one has my vote.....

Before you award that prize, Ron, take a look at Score-O's post in the "June Allyson, R.I.P." thread, for another contender.

(I'd like to think we might chalk it off to his having a bad day perhaps......)

All I did is name one the sweet lady's best movies, with no added commentary.

The bad taste is purely in the eye of the beholder (which was my intention...)

As for THE COLLECTOR, book and movie were written and filmed, respectively, as cautionary tales.

Yesterday I posted about Houston's Mayor Bob Lanier.
Today Lanier collapsed at Ken Lay's memorial service and had to be taken out on a stretcher.

I make about $200 a week bagging groceries, so there's no way in hell I could afford an apartment.

Maybe you can change your profile, now that you told us what your job is.

Unfortunately, I don't think there's much hope. The stuff you mention could be worked around, but the fact you also post on a board for film score geeks really dashes any chance of romance against the rocks. I'm in the same boat.

Dunno. My ex liked soundtracks...tho her favorite was Gladiator, and she thought Terminator 2 was a better score than Total Recall (I guess that's why she's my ex!wink)

I'm in the same situation right now. Mom 85 and not going anywhere soon.

Solution, or at least it helps.

RENT A LOT OF PORN and get a secure bedroom door lock so Mom don't wander in. Real Girls will come later down the line.

Think you might post something about Bush and Cheney?

Over the last several years, I attended 4 weddings where the couples met online. I work with 5 people who met their spouses on line.

Their suggesgtions: Go to a good online service and be painstakingly honest. Make sure that anyone who answers your ad will not be surprised. If the person who answers your ad (or any ads that you answer) was also painstakingly honest, you have the start of a good relationship.

Good Luck to you!

As I said above, be absolutely honest. There may be someone out there who is financially stable and does not care a wit about how much you make. Perhaps she wants a shy, nice guy to share life with. It is certainly worth a try if you are interested in finding a mate.

Especially when one is 32, not very good-looking, still lives at home with mom, has no car, and is painfully shy around attractive women? frown

Carry them off, like the Romans did the Sabine Women.

Mr Jack:
1. 32 y.o.= you are just starting to live!!
Time is on your side.
2. Painfully shy, you'll grow out of it with time. Attractive women often are more shy and reserved than it's led to believe.
3. Still live with mom?? A good son will make a good husband or mate; no problem there Mr. Jack, unless you have a "psycho mom".

What you need to do is do what you like, don't worry too much. And above all have and or make good friends, for is among your friends that you will eventually meet a good woman with common interests and goals.
At 32 sometimes you'll get the feeling the world is passing you by and you are all alone, etc..........
Just never forget that there's a nice and beautiful woman feeling exactly as you do somewhere.
And above all, be yourself, love yourself and the day you least expect....bammm!!
Most of us have been where you are.
Best of luck

Another suggestion:

Get yourself a bunch of stuffed birds.

.....Get yourself a bunch of stuffed birds.....

Wouldn't that be a "flock" of stuffed birds?

big grin
