    I've never been in a relationship

    and I've never kissed anyone, but to be honest I would love to find my other half. Someone as my companion equal. Someone with understanding, affection and attention. Someone who would actually give me eye contact. Someone to whom I could tell anything. Someone to whom I could...

    Lonely Little Girl

    It had never been one of my priorities becauseΒ I always thought I need to work my butt out in my studies.Β 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've never been in a relationship

    or even been on a date, probably due to confidence. So I thought "**** it" and ended up going out with a girl I liked a few times, we talked a lot through text Facebook etc. so I asked her out again. She said she was going out with some friends so I thought nothing of it. The...

    I look around and see all these people in

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    since I never have before. I've never had a mutual bond with someone in which we feel strongly for each other. I am jealous of other people who have because I have been told that it's amazing. Nothing ever works out for me though and it's very discouraging. Usually the man I...

    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.

    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.

    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...
