I Have Never Been In a Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,449 People

    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...

    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...

    Nope never been in a relationship.

    It doesn't bother me at all because my priorities has always been academics and my friends and family. I need to work hard for myself first and get my life together before jumping into any relationship. I've been asked out on dates often but I politely decline because being in a...

    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...

    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...

    I'm a 19 year old girl thats never been kissed,

    never been in a relationship, and (surprise) never had sex. I dont like myself to begin with, so its hard for me to believe a guy would ever find me attractive, but the fact that im so inexperienced makes me even more unappealing. 😔

    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...

    No one has ever found me attractive

    even if I did get close to one I'm to stupid to know when to ask a girl out they'd reject me anyway cause I'm ugly as sin and they only have eyes for the good looking guys

    I can get down about myself sometimes.

    I feel excluded, sort of lonely. I want a boyfriend but at the same time I don't. I'm afraid. I'm afraid of new experiences, new people. I'm afraid of being 25 or 30 before I become intimate with someone. I just want to feel close to somebody. I want someone to love and I want...

    I am 16 and never been in a relationship.

    It's actually become abnormal nowadays LOL. I don't mind at all, but it only starts to bother me when I see happy couples. Or when I see really rude girls that somehow have a boyfriend. It blows my mind.

    I'm embarrassed about this kiss thing, not so much the never being in a relationship or being a virgin thing. Somedays I want to just get it over with, but I know that I can't. I hate myself and I'm not about to date someone when I do, otherwise I'll constantly question their...

    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'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 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.

    Not that i've never been in a relationship,

    let's just say i've never been in a real relationship. I never experience getting kissed goodnight, cuddling during movies. I crave for intimacy but no one suits my personality so far.

    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...
