I Have Never Been In a Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,237 People

    18 and have never even been kissed.

    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...

    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

    I think if a guy has a gf.

    .. I shouldn't be talking to him, because I would definitely get jealous if my guy was talking to girls, but that's just my opinion. And I have no if des what to put this experience under

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    why everyone wants one, or thinks I am lame for not having a boyfriend. I am only 14 years old, I do not need a boyfriend or sex or love, I believe I am not mature enough for this yet. I just wish more people thought this way instead of rushing to grow up, then when something...

    I'm 24 years old and being the wheel around

    your friends who are all couples just sucks. Sleeping alone at night in a big bed hugging pillows wishing it was a person instead, then crying myself to sleep. Just wish that I could just accept being single but it is so hard

    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...

    with anyone and I'm not in the prime of my life and don't know what to do. I have nobody and have absolutely zero confidence with myself. My fear isn't being alone in the present, it's being alone in the future. I'm a college student and still I feel horrible about myself and...

    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...

    I have never been in a relationship.

    I'm 36, gay and never been in a relationship with a male or female. I'm scared out of my mind because I'm sensitive to people and there feelings purely because I don't want to be hurt. I think too much with my emotions and not enough with my head. and on top of that I've only...

    I have noticed several people in relationships,

    even going so far as to get married. They're all like "you'll find someone one day" this and "you need a partner" that and I'm thinking "why should I?". I just can't wrap my head around it.
