The dating game insane clown
Numbers are data, dat your lack of dating experience.
They become too afraid to approach , never mind people they’re attracted to.
If you venture into any Forever Alone or incel community like /r9k/, you’ll see hundreds of people lamenting how much sex they’ve never had and how the world is conspiring against them.
That’s not taking ownership of being socially inexperienced; that’s making it the core of your identity and letting it overtake your life.
If you miss that window, then you’re fucked; you’re now saddled with a permanent debuff to your dating odds that you’ll overcome.
Of course, this window of opportunity bears about as much resemblance to reality as Pokemon does to animal husbandry.
