I Have Never Been In a Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,927 People

    I want to find my soulmate,

    someone who cares and loves me as I am. I'm always imagine that he is with me. I'm just too shy and I have body image issues too. I hope I will find him soon because I don't want to be lonely anymore.

    Yea, I'm young I get it.

    But it really sucks not having ever been in a relationship or anything close to one. Now a days anyone and everyone are in a relationship. I don't know if it's my fault for being to shy or insecure. But I absolutely refuse to throw myself at guys just cause I feel lonely or that...

    How do you even get one?

    Especially if you have a hard time making friends and having conversations with other people? It's always this hard for me.

    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. Β  I think it's my own fault, really. I'm...

    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 Starting To Bother Me

    I never really thought too much about not being in a relationship but now (at 23) it's starting to bother me. I feel so left out of something. Like something's just out of my reach. I'm happy for the most part but something feels like it's missing. I don't think I need a man but...

    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...

    relationships and I see how happy they are. Then I think of how alone I am and how happy I'd be to have a relationship like theirs.

    I'm Just A Weirdo, Right?

    So I'm 27 and have never been in a relationship. Not even close. I've never even been on a second date. All through high school and college I felt okay with this because I just never met anyone I wanted to date. But I eventually realized this was just something I told myself...

    But he wasn't there. Happy moment just lasted for a few dates. Making me feeling myself not good enough. There were many nights that I cried alone. Hoping someone better will come into my life.

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    Let the Right One In

    I spend a significant amount of time in my head. My mind is an infinite being, and my thoughts are its asymptotes; they get so damn close to the walls, but never reach them. So when I stare at the girl with the jet black hair in the mirror, it astounds me that my mind has an...
