"I am a 34 year old man and I am still a virgin. I had a girlfriend in high school and we went to the prom, but nothing happened between except kissing and oral. I later found out she was hoping to have sex on prom night but I didn't make a move because I was young and inexperienced and afraid if I came on too strong I would upset her and she would reject me.
After high school I was in a car accident that damaged my teeth and left me with some severe scarring on my face and neck. I could not afford to fix my teeth so they looked pretty bad during most of my 20's. The scarring also makes me look bad. I have not had a girlfriend since high school and I don't even approach women because I see the way they look at me. At first it's a look of shock as if to say "What happened to you?", then they look away because they don't want to be rude and stare or they can't bare to look at me. I feel bad that I blew my only opportunity to make love to a woman, and I feel awful when I know I will never get that chance again. I feel I have missed out on a great part of life that most people experience a lot. My life has been constant pain and loneliness since the accident, and I contemplate suicide on a daily basis. I don't go through with it because I know how much it would upset my family, but if they knew my pain they would probably support my choice"
