the letters of St. Basil the Great

The Loeb edition, I suppose?

Loebs make things a lot easier for the non-classicist profanum vulgus.

I actually can't remember. I'll have to check and come back to you.
It was Loeb.
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

Today's thread "Should Mor Ephrem stop being Mod on Oc.net?" is easily one of the five best things that ever happened to me.

That's sad.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Is it pathetic that the peak of my romantic life and arguably the peak of my whole young life altogether was the one time I dated a girl in high school when I was 16? That was the one moment in life where, at least momentarily, I wasn't romantically incompetent and totally alone. It was the one night where I was truly able to fall asleep with a smile on my face knowing "I did it," that I overcame my shyness and dated a girl. Of course, then it never went nowhere after that and I haven't seen the girl in 3 or 4 years, yet I take confidence in the fact that for that one moment in my life, I actually dated a girl. Man I am pathetic.

This forum certainly has a problem with Shyness, doesn't it?
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

I didn't talk to girls through high school. My first date ever was with my now-wife in the senior year of college. Your patheticness has nothing on me.

Well, it wasn't exactly self control that kept me at only ever dating one person. It's more like only one person ever exhibited the necessary amount of pity upon me to enable me to get that one.  :P

Is it pathetic that the peak of my romantic life and arguably the peak of my whole young life altogether was the one time I dated a girl in high school when I was 16? That was the one moment in life where, at least momentarily, I wasn't romantically incompetent and totally alone. It was the one night where I was truly able to fall asleep with a smile on my face knowing "I did it," that I overcame my shyness and dated a girl. Of course, then it never went nowhere after that and I haven't seen the girl in 3 or 4 years, yet I take confidence in the fact that for that one moment in my life, I actually dated a girl. Man I am pathetic.

No, you're not.  You're ahead of where I was at your age.  That's pathetic.  ;)

Stay on track, James, and maybe you too can become an internet moderator one day.
Too bad I'll be dead before that happens.

PTA, you're an older single guy. Can you tell me what to expect? I'm going through some existential soul searching and I just know that I'm going to be single and unmarried at 40. If I'm already in college and haven't made any effort to break out of my shell, I doubt I will anytime soon. And this doesn't bother me much, although it does make me wonder, "where did I go wrong?" Is it true that unmarried women get desperate by the time they reach their 30s? In which case, do I have a chance?

JameR, please stop referring to PeterTheAleut as "Pete".  You may call him PeterTheAleut, or PTA.  He doesn't like to be referred to as Pete.  This is not a warning, just a request to be courteous to other posters and respect their wishes concerning themselves.

Yes, unless they already have children.

We're teaching James about the menopause. Care to join in?

Yes, unless they already have children.

Or don't want them (perhaps because they're invested enough in their profession that they consider that their family, or perhaps if they're already involved in raising someone else's children, like their sister's, for instance).
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

I don't think it matters how desperate they are. If you are incapable of talking to them, you aren't going to have a chance. It isn't like they are bloodhounds who track down male genitalia and pounce.
God bless!

Nonsense.

They exist.  Take a look at the birthrate on your Continent.

I've recently read an article in the newspaper written by a middle class woman in her early 40s who whined about how bad and pitiable her life is since she never met Prince Charming, was too busy with her career and thus never had children. I suppose this has a lot to do with the faltering birth rate.

Besides, if it weren't for the immigrants to the US, who breed like rabbits, your birthrate would be akin to ours.

Even if you only take into account whitey, American birth rates are still higher.  Not by much, but still.  Either way fertility rates tend to drop for children of immigrants and subsequent generations.
