I Have Never Had a Boyfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 703 People

    This past year has been a huge step

    for me. I went on dates for the first time in my life, and I learned how to open up and be more social. This year I had the chance to start 2 relationships. (Different guys, different times.) Both times I was afraid and said no. I wasn't completely in it, something was holding...

    Not in real life, online,

    in my head. Nothing. I don't know what I am doing wrong because everyone online says I'm "beautiful" but in real life I'm not even acknowledged. It makes me upset. Sometimes I wish I could die because I feel like everyone's been lying to me my whole life.

    which is weird because I'm the person in question but all the same. I don't know why. I think sometimes it's cos I'm scared of commitments and love and I'm very very picky and just for thought sake, I'm attractive ( Cos I have eyes and have been told this a lot ) I think guys...

    I mean I had one in elementary school

    but that doesn't count but I never had a boyfriend in middle school or most of my high school years. It sucks when you see all your friends in relationships and you cant get one to save your own life.

    and I haven't been kissed..nothing. It makes me very depressed and I think I will be alone my whole life. All of the couples I see makes it even harder. I am shy and have a very low self esteem, so that explains why no one has taken interest. I know most of you will say I'm...

    Is there anyone out there over 35

    that have never had a boyfriend? Most of these similar experiences are from younger females that haven't even begun to experience life. I just want to hear from someone closer to my age

    It is not that I really care of having a

    boyfriend and it's not that I'm so desperate to have one that I'm gonna go with the first boy that likes me, but seing other couples being happy makes me think "I wanna have that". I want to feel how it is like to be in love
