I Don't Want a Boyfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 71 People

    I've Been Dysfunctional...

    I don't know where to start... I have craved having a boyfriend at certain times in my life, primarily because I wanted to "fit in" and be normal. However, when I find myself in relationships (which have always ended quickly), I compromise who I am in order to make the...

    I Have a Related Experience.

    titled "I do not want a boyfriend." I chuckled to myself upon seeing this group. Guess the "don't" is more popular than the "do not", huh? loobiesa, I formed mine first! Sigh. (it's okay, I have respect for individuality. Was it the logo?) My...

    I had enough. I don't want to waste anymore

    time on this garbage. I don't see the point of having a loving relationship with someone that means absolutely nothing to me: the average 18 year old boy who will not make me progress as a person because he's too shallow. Then who means something to me? The person who gave me...

    Never Had One, But Saw The Carnage...

    While love appeals to many, and indeed is sometimes considered most important, romantic love is not for me. I''ll love my friends as friends, and my family as family, and the like; however, seeking a mate is something I hold no desire for. I have seen it hurt those close to me...

    I'm just scared. I don't want to be like my mom.

    I don't want a boyfriend. Okay well, maybe, I do. A little bit. I just want to feel like someone is there for me or something. I don't know. I suck at this department. I'll be a hypocrite for saying that I don't have an 'ideal' guy. I actually do. My definition of an...

    Just Not For Me

    I just don't see myself with anyone. I'm not a pessimistic, but I'm not a romantic either. My aunt called a couple weeks ago, and she went "So, with anyone?" I reply no. She goes "Well you're looking though, but it'll take some time" Or something along those lines. I go "Eh, I'm...

    Cannot Be Bothered

    Whilst I lust after guys, the idea of having a permanent person always there sort of freaks me out. I like knowing that I can do what I want when I want and without negotiation. The way I see it I have friends and as long as there are friends, I can have enough human company. I...

    If a potential 'Mr. Right' comes along,

    sure I'll give it a go. But I'm perfectly content, right now, by myself. Is that so bad?
