    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.

    Nope.. Never, I use to think something was

    wrong with me but now I know that something is. I can remember playing on the playground with a cute boy and him constantly going Ew when I would try to touch him. I hate it when people do me like that. I the remembering how people are always not wanting to be around me or are...

    What's the deal? Are some people just special?

    Are some of us destined to be alone forever, never to question fate? I just don't understand. I am 25 years old soon and all of my experiences have been few and far between. I don't think I'm ugly, I try to make myself approachable, friendly, kind. Somehow though I'm always the...

    I have never ever been in a relationship,

    in fact I have never had a boy ever call me pretty or say he likes me that way, unless it's over the internet which I don't count because the majority are creeps. It makes me feel horrible about myself. I'm starting to think that there is something utterly grotesque about me.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Been Dreading This One

    It's funny because I know a lot of people my age who have been in relationships and a few friends who have not. I don't know what it is for me. Maybe lack of self confidence or being too aggressive. Hahaha! I tend to push guys away because I have a hard time being vulnerable or...

    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...

    What I Think About Never Being In A Relationship

    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...

    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 no experience with relationships.

    In high school it was cute to be innocent but now all of a sudden it's a turn off. I feel like I missed my chance somewhere and now a relationship will never happen because of said lack of experience.

    They're Overrated

    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...
