Smile! by Undead-Niklos Smile! by Undead-Niklos
Just wanted to let you all know I'm still drawing! While it's not quite as much pony as I've been drawing the last half-year, I'm still alive! And I know it's no one's business, but I'm just going to sit here and whine for a bit. I need an outlet.

Man, being single sucks. It's so empty. I've been on a dry spell for well over a year and a half now. The whole "YEAH FREEDOM" phase has long come and gone and now whenever I see a pretty lady I just get all sad. I'm sure some of you can relate. It's a pretty common occurrence among humans. Part of the reason I got into ponies was because it took my mind away from the real world and all the social awkwardness and insecurities that come packaged with it.

95% of the day I maintain a positive attitude and keep waiting for my moment to shine, but I get impatient. It hasn't come yet. Still, I put on a smile and work my way through these lonely months.

And I know I'm not lonely. I have my friends, my family, you guys. And it's great! I get lots of interaction from you all and I couldn't ask for a better group of people to converse with. Though I still feel empty. I feel like I just want to sit somewhere, with someone, and watch something, and share a moment. And I want it to be deeper than that. I want it to be closer. I want it to be intimate.

I realize that this is probably corny as all hell, and I might even regret typing this all out. I'm probably being stupid, and I'll bounce back eventually. I'm just feeling like I'm in a rut right now, and I miss talking to you guys on a weekly basis.

I can totally relate, not completely, but somewhat.

This probably sounds really condescending, but the reason so few good guys have girlfriends is because they are afraid to ask, be social, or pursue. I know, because I am one of those people. I was lucky enough to happen to be in 4 classes this year with the girl I liked, and it kind of grew from there. I feel bad for people that don't have it quite as easy, and I know the feel from not ever having a legitimate girlfriend before the age of 16. But you know, you've just got to ask, and try to find time to spend. You'll find someone who will have you eventually.

Best wishes for you in your days ahead. The truth is the whole dating thing sucks, because everypony wants a Disney fairytale romance, and hardly anypony ever finds love like that. I hope you are the exception.

I can relate with the loneliness feeling (thankfully not for as long as you've had to put up with it) and I wish there was more I could do. My advice is: be confident and go and ask someone out! I'd draw them a picture as well because yours are great and any girl would get excited to receive an awesome drawing (and probably an offer to go on a date too)

Good luck, man!

Yeah, it sucks. I'm going on 4 years, myself. Actually, this has me wondering why there isn't a brony dating site. I'd imagine fans would share similar interests outside of ponies, so that might help with compatibility. Not that it'd be very useful for me, what with my... "particular" tastes

That's pretty much exactly where I'm at, except I Wish it was only a year and a half...

Yea i know what you mean *sorta* i used to feel that way after a year dry spell when i got out of a 3 year relationship but then i met a new girl...then another...then another. Then i realized being in a relationship sucks! Dont get me wrong sex is great but so is keeping my money. Although im anti social as all hell and grew up alone on a farm so im probably not the best person to relate to.

I feel ya dude. I'm two years into my dry spell and it doesn't look like its changing any time soon. Just gotta soldier on and realize that you gotta be content alone before adding someone else into the equation. And don't forget to Smile Smile Smile!

Lookin forward to more of your work!
