Unfortunately it's the full time romantic commitment that I'm in this for and there is simply no way I see that happening right now. I don't have the desire to just date random women or nsa or fwb. Those things just don't do it for me. I guess if I had known how hard the time and "life" aspect of it was I probably wouldn't have even tried to date somebody else.
