But the problem is that when people used to get married at 18,19 or 20, this whole thing was doable. But at 29, gee whiz. I mean, I'm 26 and I have managed to avoid it so far because I'm lazy and never really go after girls but if I decide to enter a relationship I can't guarantee anything. Furthermore, mastrubation is considered equally bad, so if you're doing it you might as well get a girlfriend and just go for the real thing, both are mortal sins, but one is nicer.
And it is a gauntlet. An averagely attractive woman gets bombarded with male attention, I understand that. But I can't respect women who crave it and deliberately put themselves into a position where fornication can easily happen. I honestly thing that aside from the tribal pre historic period, this is the worst time to be a man ever. And on top of that, you have to basically choose whether to live in sin or live without female companionship.

I commend you for your efforts!  It's truly heroic.

You may try seeking a younger wife from the trad community.  There's one advantage of being a man.

If you have kids, you'll be able to tell them that you waited for their mother and challenge them to do the same.

It is quite depressing and so easy to fall into self-pity.  Satan loves that because it taints the virtue you are striving for in the first place.

You are one in a million just as Jesus was and just as the Saints are.  Would you be happier if you joined the crowd?

No, it's empty promises.  Don't listen to him.

Plus, marriage ain't no piece of cake.

Try to focus on enjoying the pleasures of the single life that won't be available to you when you are tied down to a wife and kids.  (It can feel like a prison sometimes. :P)

Travel, study, learn new hobbies and skills.  Make a bucket list and go for it!  Relish those freedoms and be grateful. 

Gratitude squashes self-pity.
