    Okay I just want to get across the fact

    that I'm not desperate to be in a relationship nor am I one of those guys that goes from girl to girl but, I'm 16 about to finish my GCSEs and I've never had a girl that likes me. I haven't met that many girls but everyone that I do I automatically like and I can't help myself...

    I am 29 years old and have never been in a

    relationship. Which means yes, I have no experience in the sack. Is that such a bad thing? It seems like these days men and women only want men and women that have been with other people. I don't understand this. (Maybe because I've never been with anyone? Maybe.) It seems...

    I have a lot of mixed feelings

    when I mention this to people. You know, you always get the response of "How can that be? You are so pretty!" or the most frequent, "You will be soon enough, he's out there!". To be completely honest, I've never thought of it that much. I mean sure, when I see couples holding...

    I’ve recently entered into my first real

    relationship of my adult life, and it’s becoming clear to me that I have no idea what a relationship is. I feel so clueless about it that I feel the need to actually do research so I can better understand what it means to be in a relationship. The fact that this guy even...

    "If only" I had my life to live over - I would

    never get in a relationship. I have received nothing but pain and abandonment from the opposite, so called fairer, sex.

    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...

    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 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.
