    An Uninterest?

     I am 18 years old and have yet to find that one special girl.  Do I feel any self pity? I don't. I have never felt any desperation in not having a girlfriend. Interest? Of course. But never a burning desire within to have someone to hold and cuddle with. I do find...

    Never Had One, Never Will Be Able To Get One

    I always wanted a girlfriend. When I was little, I used to watch the James Bond films and wish I was him, get the women he did, so effortlessly. Then I moved on to secondary/high school. By the end of the first month, some people were already going out with each other! And yet I...

    Have Never Had A Girlfriend

    I am an 18 year old heart transplant recipient. Never having a girlfriend didn't bother me until i went to Highschool. Seeing everyone flirting and kissing made me sad. My life was supposed to get better after my transplant but it only got worse as i struggled with depression.

    Forever Alone?

    When I was in my 20’s, I figured I’d meet someone nice, perhaps even get married and raise a family. I wasn’t too concerned as I had plenty of time. Although I had been ignored by girls all through high school, I thought that perhaps I’d find someone in college – no...

    I'm 22 now and never had a girlfriend.

    But I'm extremely shy to nor am I good looking. Wished I had one, I'm extremely lonely. Someone to share laugh with, be myself around, be able to open up to, etc. Some people are just meant to be alone I guess.

    When I was 18, I met this girl who had the same problem that I had. Our Families thought that we were gay. However, in her case, they were right. It's funny, I remember the moment so clearly. She suddenly said: "Be my Boyfriend!", I was just floored. I knew she was a lesbian...

    Don't Feel Bad

    The whole dating game is a scam so don't feel bad if you are left out. When you're younger it's all about looks, charisma, coming from a wealthy family, and being the most aggressive person in the room. After you turn 28 it's all about how much money you make. The dirty little...
