Yes.

A lot of customer service jobs have a below 30 only limit.
-Airline flight attendants
-Hotel concierge
-Bell boys
-Fast food industry

In addition to that, they are unlikely to take you for jobs that require years of training, such as
-Airline pilot or medical student, cause by the time you're done you won't be able to pay back the tuition fees cause you're already a few years from retirement.

You know you're old when:

You watch the Grammys and have no idea who any of the winners are.
You watch the Oscars and are familiar with the majority of the people featured in the "In Memoriam" section.
Your body has started to randomly and inexplicably experience small malfunctions.
Your libido drops from a "once a day" thing to a "once a week" thing.
You've found yourself looking at a calendar and saying, "Fuck, it's THAT LATE in the year already??"
You think that everything was better back when you were a kid, and kids today are worthless.
You aren't just okay with eating leftovers, but thrilled with them.
You're the oldest person at your job with the exception of owners/managers and other senior staff.

And, of course, if you post in a thread like this one.

And really the problem isn't being attracted to them in itself. As soon as puberty really kicks in, the shape of our bodies starts signalling to members of the opposite sex (at least, those that swing that way) that hey, check out this potential mate, gotta spread those genes. Hence, attraction. Just because we know the girl is too young doesn't mean that this process doesn't happen. You can't help it.

The problem lies in how people respond to it. If you are a grown-ass man and are thinking about and talking about fifteen year old girls as though they were viable sexual partners, that shit is creepy as hell.

I would love to have a virgin as a partner. The problem is that, regardless of where my attraction lies, I can't take anyone more than a few years younger than me seriously because of the generation gap. Like a few days ago, I was talking with a co-worker, about Jewish weddings (dunno why that came up) and I said that the only thing I knew was that it somewhere involved smashing a glass underfoot because I remember that from when Lord Zedd married Rita Repulsa. His response was "...who?" and I gave him a deadpan look, saying "Power Rangers." and he responded "Dude, I'm six years younger than you. I never watched Power Rangers. My childhood hero was Spongebob!" So... yeah, that would NEVER work.

But, on the flip side, anyone my own age that is still a virgin is definitely going to have a whole stack of emotional problems much, much worse than even my own. While that is partly a turn-on, it would also get pretty tiring really fast.

Power Rangers has been a thing since the early 90s. It's still a thing, though perhaps not as hyped by kids. I might understand him not knowing who Rita Repulsa or Lord Zedd are, since they had limited time after the first few seasons (and were fully expunged at the end of In Space, I think), but to have never watched it is not an age problem.

All that aside, I would also like my first sexual partner to be a virgin, but only because we'll share in the awkwardness as much as the pleasure. As if I didn't have plenty of other things to drive me away from any interest in dating, I have a deep concern that I'll have sex and the unlucky lady is left horribly bored/unsatisfied and I die of failure. Of course, I'd be highly interested in a light sub situation where the woman is experienced and roleplays a teacher for the Sex Ed class I happen to be in alone...

>generation gap

Protip, you're part of the same damn generation. If either of you are on the edge of the generation, it's still really not much of a gap.

You need to step outside your bubble more often if that's all that's stopping you from making connections to people. Fucking Power Rangers of all things? Really?

You also have this whack fascination with virginity. What the hell. Virginity doesn't say anything about a person's personality. And what the fuck. Emotional problems are not a turn on. I'm not usually one to tell people what gets them hot and horny, but I'm going to do so now. That's spoken like someone who hasn't experienced going through emotional problems of his/her own or anyone else's, in spite of what you said. Drama is not fun. Drama is only fun when it's being performed on a stage or movie screen.

You are really coming off as someone who bases his views IRL on anime tropes or something.

Also, just to reiterate, FUCKING POWER RANGERS? Dude. While it's important to have things in common, that's not the complete end all. Especially when it's FUCKING POWER RANGERS WHAT THE HELL.

I totally understand that view, but calling people with sexual experience "hand-me-downs" and "accepted partners" absolutely reeks of egotism and just makes you out to be an asshole. I am also socially awkward, and part of working on that is analyzing the phrases/words you use. Online is a great place to work on this, because you have time to review your posts before you submit and ask yourself "does this make me seem like a dick?"

Killing yourself because you went 30 years without having sex is stupid, bro. If you are being serious, you are putting way too much stock into being a virgin and need to do a little growing. That sounds like some straight up teenager stuff, honestly.

Life is not a race or a competition and we all find our own paths/grow at different rates. I can't even imagine why someone would think sex is that damn important to anything. Not enough to fucking kill yourself over, what the fuck. It's sex. Nothing more.

Attempting to step out of your boundaries a bit and making an attempt to grow as a person seems a little more rational than offing yourself (I know you just said you're not serious but still).

I mean you can take baby steps to get where you want to be, or you can feel sad about it. Take a step then feel good that you took it. This weekend go hang out somewhere that you normally don't. Chat up some strangers. Then you never have to see them again. Consider it gaining experience points until you level up your social skills. Most of your anxiety is likely coming from the inside as opposed to other people. What I'm saying is that you're likely the one making yourself feel bad (issues like depression notwithstanding, that's not exactly within your control) and whatever issues you have about feeling pathetic, most people aren't really thinking that way about you.

Or if they are fuck 'em because like I said life isn't a race.

I'm pretty easy to chat to now. I wasn't always. It took some work to get here, and it wasn't always easy, but I feel better now.

I hate this. I hate it so much. It places the blame on other people for your inability to get laid and makes it look like you think other people owe you sex. "It's not my fault I can't get laid, I really want to! It's everyone else. It's involuntary."

I know you probably don't use it in that sense (your views on +4 back this up) but it's a term associated with people that do. Incel forums are right up there with MRA forums in terms having of horrible people with horrible views on life.

I'm 27. My mom, who also wants to move, actually lets me drive sometimes but was too busy taking care of her own mom until a year or two ago when she took me to an instructor. My dad just wouldn't teach anyone at all after his first ride with my brother. Could get something going within a year or two, but at this point I think it makes sense to go for source of income that I can reach with what I have just in case, plus it's not like it would hurt.
Currently working off an on on a game, which I think I should keep working on but with more determination to actually get things finished. Other options include webcomic writing, various article writing jobs posted about on /biz/, and two shops within walking distance of my mom's house.
Of those, one of them is a store down the road with some girl my mom keeps saying she can't stand for vague reasons. It offers to hire a chef and I'd have to at least find out what that job even requires.
The other is run out of a plywood shed by some guy who seems nice enough when I called him once, but who apparently thought a good way to extract metal from computers is to put them all in a bonfire, so I dunno how much I could trust him to make sensible decisions.
What my mom probably expects is that she'll get an accounting job somewhere once she gets caught up on newer versions of Excel, and have me tag along to work IT at the same place.
I'm not sure how moving out would work without anyone to help me move there. Maybe I could talk more seriously to my brother's friend about moving to New York with him, he said he'd take anyone familiar with him just to not be moving in there alone.
In any case, what matters is that I keep focused on the goal instead of listening when people tell me to wait.

Copy Pasta!
Between 88.9 and 98.7 percent of people said penetrative vaginal intercourse was "definitely sex" (the answer varied depending on whether or not they or their partner had an orgasm) and over 70 percent said that anal intercourse (with or without orgasm) was definitely sex. Only 24.6 percent of people defined oral sex as "definitely sex," though that number jumped to 31 percent if there was an orgasm involved. And only 33.2 percent of people classified 69 as "definitely sex." It's interesting to note that people were more likely to rank an act as "sex" if it resulted in an orgasm.
