Yes, yes don't we all hate that word [i]overrated[/i] but I only use it when i strongly feel someone/something is overrated like Tupac.
Why do we need a woman to be happy when we've got:
* Bros to hang out with
* Video games to enjoy
* A body to build
* Movies / TV shows to watch
* Skills to improve (art for me)
+ many more!
I'll admit I'm a beta who was never confident around woman and never had a girlfriend but that never stopped me from enjoying my life.
During a period of my life back in junior years when life was simple (played Halo 2 all day and watched Jake Long: American Dragon) I wanted a GF because almost everyone around me had a partner so I thought there was something wrong with me.
I pity the next guy who says [i]tfw when no gf[/i]
Now that I've grown older, experienced certain moments in life and overcame peer pressure I have to say woman are the least of my concerns.
How about you flood?
Since I'm still young, I'm going to completely disagree with your opinions and claim that having a girlfriend is the best thing ever. Until I learn otherwise (or grow into an old bag like you), I will maintain this opinion and have as much fun in this relationship as I can.
