I Have Never Been In a Long Term Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 228 People

    I am 36 and never had a boyfriend.

    I have dated, but one of 2 things happens, either the guy just wants sex or the chemistry is missing. (Meaning they like me, but aren't attracted to me and I am put in the friend zone)

    I Guess Thats Just The Way It Is

    I am a 27 year old woman who is a mother to a beautiful baby boy.  Who came from one of the very short and few relationships I have experienced.  It just seems like nothing or no one seems to stick.  I would have to say my longest relationship which just ended...

    Just Another Day

    I am 26 years old and I only dated one girl for only 3 months. It is painful not to be able to experience a true loving relationship. Everyday I don't look forward to the fact that I don't have a girlfriend when I wake up every morning. I am a intelligent and nice...

    Don't Know If It's For Me

    I'm only 21, so people always say I still have time to find that "special someone." Maybe they are right, but for now, I am actually fine with it. I have been in quite a few relationships, and none of them have been for more than 4 months--and in all of them, I ended it. Now don...

    Am I Relationship Material?

    After living 35 years I now have discovered that my worst enemy hasn’t been life or others; but simply myself.  I always wanted to be a pleaser,  in fact I fit best in this role.  I like harmony and peace, I shy at confrontation or disagreement, I am usually the first to...

    Do guys care if the girl is "inexperienced" per

    se in relationships. It's not like I'm dumb about things, I've just never had a serious relationship before. Is it a turn off for guys if the girl he's seeing has never been in a committed relationship? I often find myself scared / weary to tell guys this. Because I think it...

    From What I Can Tell....

    I've been friendzoned again. **** sucks. I guess I should be glad to have somebody who seems cool with hanging out with me. I guess I should be happy that I had enough delusional hope left to actually think that she might actually like me when she contacted me about going hiking...

    I have a feeling. I've never been in love so how will I ever know when I am in love? I've heard there's a spark but I don't believe that. I guess I will have to wait and find out.
