    I'm 25 and have never been out on a real date!

    Really? I have a child [I'm devoted] but I've never been to the movies or out with a man. I've never really had a boyfriend either. I've had FWB situations but that's it. I've always felt it was because I don't think I'm attractive. I'm fat (but I own that ****!) and I have a...

    Third Wheel

    Maybe it's my fault for not getting a boyfriend in high school. I didn't think I was ugly but I didn't think I was the prettiest either. I was kind of wallflower but I wasn't a total loner. I had good friends I could laugh with and trust. I guess when it came to guys I just wasn...

    Not Sad Anymore

    A pot to every lid- so the saying goes. I suppose that i am not a pot then! I am an awesome person and i work hard. I am intelligent. I am outgoing. I am athletic. Still- never had 1 real date. I am unsure why but it might be beyond my control. So i smile each day and am proud to...

    Would Be Nice...

    The last time I did a date proper was...well, I don't know, really. All I know is the kinda "dates" I tend to get are fast food and a movie at mines or his place, which never gets finished because either he wants some or I do and boom, that happens and he leaves or I'm dropped...

    Sad

    I've never had a real date. You know, he likes you, you like him, he asks you on a date, gets dressed up, brings you flowers, takes you somewhere nice for dinner, maybe a movie, and then a sweet little goodnight kiss. I always wanted that. But I never dated people who were...

    Dates. . .

    I have never been on a date outside of someone I was in a relationship with. I have always wanted to ask a girl on a date but don't know what to do, even if she said yes, then what? What would I talk about? I want to go on a date, I want to pop that cherry so then I...

    I Regret It, But No

    In my fantasy, a real date is when the guy dresses up, buys you flowers, comes to your door to pick you up, and takes you to some restaurant or something. The kind of date you always see in romantic comedies. The kind of date that ends with a cute kiss when he brings you back...
