I Have Never Been In a Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,451 People

    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...

    And I don't plan on it

    unless someone comes to me... I tried to make a move a little while ago and almost screwed up my life, so if it's gonna happen again then I'm not gonna be the cause of it

    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 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's a dream of mine

    but I want to be with someone who is like me. I'm so unique that it's hard to find a girl like me. I find so many shallow girls who want me to be taller or just aren't into me. I'm not changing myself for a girl because she wouldn't be liking me, she'd be liking who I was...

    "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.

    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...

    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...

    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'm actually okay with not being in a relationship. I want to focus on myself and be at the place I want to be at before meeting a guy and being in a relationship with him. My priority is to finish school and get that career I love and eventually I'm sure the right guy will come...

    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'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 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.

    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...
