    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.

    Чувак, не стоит беспокоиться, просто "не бери в голову". Делай йога. Только вверх.
    Dude, don't worry about it, just "nevermind". Do yoga. Only up.

    По вашему опыту, что вы скажете о пользе йоги?

    Don’t mistake attraction for addiction.

    Russian. I recognized it visually, but I also confirmed by copy-pasting it into Google Translate, set to auto-detect.

    Basically when lonely you can start projecting your feelings into every new woman you meet. If you fantastize and imagine too much about someone you barely know...

    I see. I guess that’s how my mind’s always operated with ladies. Rather than talk to ladies I’m attracted to, I just hang back and fantasize. I’ve always been shy, but it also didn’t help that free internet porn became available right when I was going through puberty.
