I've gotten two comments on my things that limit you post. Both commenters suggested I get a job and move out (with a roommate if necessary). So I'd like to lay out exactly where I am with all of this.
In the spring of 2012 I was given a tremendous opportunity by a friend of mine. He wants to start a business that essentially caters to my skill set. He's lined up two sponsors so far and we've got a lot of the basics up and running. It's a great opportunity in the sense that I'd be immediately be in a senior position with creative input and schedule flexibility, seniority, etc.
Here's the problem: we're not profitable right now. We might never be. I have to essentially treat it as a full time job in the meantime though if we want a chance at success. It might be a year or even two years before we make any kind of serious money (if we ever do). Yes, in the meantime I can get a part time job to bring in some money but if I try to seriously make a go of this business it's going to take some time and patience. I'm not exactly sure I can wait that long to get my first kiss, first sex, etc. Maybe I can, but I think I'm already going insane.
So here's the rub: do I commit myself to this without any guarantee it will work out? What if in two years I'm a 27 year old guy without any full time work experience or (for the purposes of this blog) relationship experience? While I'm trying to make this work do I forget about dating and women?
I really do want this business to work, and I really think it can. It's just going to take some hard work and some time. But I'm torn. I see women when I'm out in the store or running errands and I feel bad.
So I don't know. I guess I'm stuck.
