I went back to school to pursue a new line of work, then the virus disrupted those plans. I’ve been able to keep working this whole time, but social-distancing has greatly limited my ability to do anything outside of work. I find myself mostly bouncing back and forth between home and work, rarely seeing the very few friends I have left in the area. It’s been wearing on me. I have a FWB, but we haven’t slept together in a while. I’m attracted to my lady coworkers, but some of them are in relationships. For those coworkers that aren’t in relationships, everyone tells me that it’s a bad idea to date coworkers. I don’t know what else to do. I’m shy and awkward, so I’m really uncomfortable approaching and talking to strange women. Even if the virus wasn’t limiting opportunities to socialize, I work weekends. Practically all events are planned for weekends. At age 35, I’ve never had a girlfriend. The more that time passes, the more I believe I was destined to be alone.
