I Have Never Been In Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,556 People

    I'm already in my mid twenties,

    and I've never had a boyfriend. I have loved them from afar, but as soon as it seems someone is interested, I push them away. I guess I'm afraid of it becoming real, even though I crave it too....sigh, I guess I'll end up as a crazy old lady with only cats for company

    It depends on how you look at it.

    I've never been in a full fledged relationship, and I don't believe I know what it's like to actually love someone you originally had no connection to. Time will tell, I guess...

    I only say this because I think being in love

    requires both parties complete infatuation . I love people who love me but loving them doesnt mean I'm in love with them . People aren't really genuine or strong enough for me to fall in love . I'll settle for happiness and stability .

    I find it unusual that at this age I have never

    been in love. My family is already getting worried.I don't know... I'm very aloof when it comes to these kinds of things. I just find it weird especially when seeing kids younger than me going into relationships and stuff.

    I have never been in love.

    I never really wanted a relationship. I actually want to be single forever and have no kids. I don't want to fall in love. Save myself the heartbreak.
