I've seen UFOs, though no aliens, unless dreams count.

I don't know why it started with me at 4-5 years old (maybe before, who knows), and I still have no answer for that. But I do know these "beings" need significant time devoted to see them.

I mean that in order to perceive them, one has to spend an inordinate amount of time truly looking.
If you say you've devoted a lot of time to it, and studied it...I would only say you haven't done enough. Be prepared to lose most if not all free time, and be prepared to lose things like your friends, and possibly your significant other. Most people simply wont put up with you doing this night after night.
In my opinion it's not worth what it does to you and your life.
I would suppose most ufo hunters have a variety of past times, astronomy, pursuit of the perfect lasagna etc. For anyone who obsesses to fault, perhaps an intervention should be called for.
And a final note, for some reason I don't think you find them, I think they find you. Can't explain that, just a gut feeling.
I think you need to realize that some of these people may have been abductees who recieved implants and false memories etc.
By the way, do you have a scoop mark on one of your shins and or do you set off metal detectors at government buildings and airports? There have been stories that some abductees do. There's always a chance that if you've seen a UFO, that you might also be an abductee.
As far as seeing something, I think that it can be like watching water boil. It will never happen if you are looking too hard, but step away and forget about it for a while and then it will happen. My experiences, alien or some other paranormal event, have all been like this. They just happened. And I have also been fascinated with aliens/UFOs for many years.
