But tbh, I think my mom's pissed cuz she was a fag hag in high school, and I think she still holds a grudge cuz all the guys she liked were gay.
But you're not alone Bird!
Someone once tried to say it was nurture not nature to me and I found that extremely funny. Maybe even ironic. If you're familiar with Moral Orel from Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network that's what my childhood was like. I was God's bestest bud. So in my case God's the one to blame. Also as a Protestant child in a mostly Italian Catholic neighborhood I wasn't allowed to play with my neighbors. There was no Internet when I was a child. I didn't have that outlet.
I came out publicly at 21 as a presumed adult in the Summer of 1976. I never dated male or female in high school. I did date a couple of lovely young ladies while working as a musician but we made better friends than lovers. The passion just wasn't there.
I'm probably more singular than single and that may be due to nurture. I seem to require large amounts of solitude. There may or may not be anything to the Aquarian Loner attribute although when I had my chart done 30 or so years ago it was spot on.
