I don’t need to be popular with women, but just one woman!

There are 32% that are mistaken

I don’t want a girlfriend, 2D is enough (`・ω・´)

Because I’m ugly (zen)

I don’t like women to begin with. Being popular with them would be living hell. Just imagining having to be around them and live with them makes me want to puke
