What options do I have as a male to build relations with the opposite sex if I'm 34 yo, but I never been with a woman? ?
I was in a sect and was waiting for the Second Comming. Then I left the community and realized that I really want to be with a female. But, unfortunately, I have deviations. It's not a result of moral decay or something.
Because I didn't practice promiscuity all that time. I just realized that I can't be with a woman of my age. I sexually recognize only females in the range between adolescence and approximately 28 yo.
I don't know what my realistic options. Or it's abstinence, or it's looking for a prostitute. But, I don't know whether I'm going to appear in hell for that.
Or it's finding a very young girl, who wants to be with an older person, but in the condition that her age is sufficient not to contradict the law.2 AnswersSingles & Dating3 months ago
