    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'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...

    I fear it may be affecting my mentality.

    I get lonely. I feel the impulses, the urges. But I've still never been with another person. I wait for the right person to come along, someone to fill the void. Nothing has happened yet. Most people I assume would just give up by now. I haven't. Its complicated

    So I've never been in a relationship

    and I'm fine with that but when I see my friends get together with someone I feel happy for them but it just reminds me that I never had a gf and I know that I will get one I'm only 16 and it's not that I don't talk to girls it's just no girls like me
