I Have Never Been In a Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,073 People

    I have never been in a relationship with anyone.

    Makes me feel lame sometimes but right now I am confused. Yes, there have been people that I like and people who like me, but I never feel those butterflies or that click. I don't mean to be self-righteous or smug, but I have not met someone that I feel is worth being with. I...

    I honestly do not get

    why everyone wants one, or thinks I am lame for not having a boyfriend. I am only 14 years old, I do not need a boyfriend or sex or love, I believe I am not mature enough for this yet. I just wish more people thought this way instead of rushing to grow up, then when something...

    Men are crazy. I'm a kind normal beautiful woman

    and basically get used abused and crapped on by men. Men are worthless psychos and minions that need to be beaten. Seriously. I hate men.

    And I'm about to be 18.

    I moved a lot so I never accepted any offers and when high school came around, I still to this day haven't accepted any offers. I'm done with high school now, but a lot of people assume it's weird that I haven't dated. I don't really see the point in dating in high school when...

    I'm not the type of girl to complain about

    being "forever alone". However, lately that's what I'm genuinely concerned about. I am in a group of very tight-knit friends who have all had boyfriends, been asked on dates, and are frequently the object of many of our peers' attention. I've never experienced this. Every time...

    Am I That Scary?

    I don't know what it is. I've been described as kind, thoughtful, considerate, intelligent, a good listener. Even been called cute and handsome a few times. Though they might have just been saying that since I never heard from any of those women again after the first date. Maybe...

    To Be Human

    I have never been in a relationship.  That is in a mature, or even an immature, romantic relationship.  I have been kissed, but I was 6 and so was he so I don't think it counts.  I have never been out on a date, never been with anyone ever.  I am a virgin...

    I'm 20 & have never had a real relashionship.

    I've had some flings but nothing truly serious, to me at least. One of those I really got my Heart broken. I tend to push people away when I see them getting too close fast. It takes me a long time to get close to someone and I usually end up hurting them. I'm still a virgin...

    Yeah I never been in a proper one,

    don't really see the point if I'm not going to marry them, you get in a relationship with someone at a young age you setting yourself up for heart breaks. I don't label my relationships unless I know that person will be by my side until the day I die, simple as that.

    And Probably Never Will. (sorry This Ended Up Being Longer Than I Thought)

    Always been single, looks like I always will be. It's not as if I've never had feelings for anyone, because I have. Lost too many friends because of it though so I don't see any point trying to have a relationship with anyone. I'm always going to be rejected. Trying to get used...

    I've Never Had a Relationship.

    I'm nearly 20 years old and I've never been in a relationship with anyone. I don't know, I see myself as a bit of a loner in that sense. It doesn't make me feel bad, but I don't tend to broadcast it because people find it strange.   I think it's my own fault, really. I'm...

    I'm 17 (turning 18) and I have never been in a

    relationship. Nor have I ever been asked out. I always had problems talking to guys. I'm just too awkward. The majority of guys where I live do drugs and only want you for sex. I find it depressing how 12 year olds in my area have had several boyfriends when I can't even get one...

    Lonely Little Girl

    It had never been one of my priorities because I always thought I need to work my butt out in my studies. I am a nerd. And what's worst being a nerd is that I'm shy and introverted so I don't have much friends in school. To why I became the person I am today is a looong story...

    I have never at any point done anything

    that could even be remotely considered an expression of romantic affection. First I was a child, then I was fat, now I'm just weird and don't have a social life. Not that any of it really matters because I'm in love with Joan of Arc.

    It's Not Everything

    To tell the truth, it might actually be a good thing in some ways. To me, having a long list of exes might say more about poor decision-making skills than how successful one has been romantically. But clearly society doesn't share that view with me, as most people use their...

    I think there are many reasons

    why I've never been in a relationship... Mainly because I'm always afraid of how it's going to turn out, or how much I will change once I'm in one. Also the fact that I have low self confidence and am very introverted.
