Don't Know What to Do

I am 21 years old and never had a boyfriend. All my friends are paired up and its getting depressing to be the only one still alone. I just don't know what to do about it. I don't consider myself a shy person and frequently go out with my friends. Yet, I never seem to meet anyone. I dont know what else to do. I dont want someone just to hook up with, thats not me. I want someone I can be friends with, laugh with and just enjoy being with. I'm begining to think there must be something wrong with me. Am I not pretty enough? skinny enough? does my personality suck?

I've been alone for 13 years. Wish I was younger, you sound like a person with a lot going for them. I've just about given up on this site, I never get any responses. If your alone, this will really make you feel depressed. AT least I'm responding. My dad and I have been preachers for years, that has no majic to it. Security , sex money are all great, But having someone who care is getting to be a dieing breed. There has got to be an answer!

i know what you mean,its no fun being the only single in a group! Looking around me, I see thats its not just the really pretty or skinny girls that have paired up. so please dont think you are not good looking enough to have a relationship...I believe that there is someone out there for everyone. I like to think that my special someone is waiting around the corner, I just cant see them yet! What sort of person do you imagine you're boyfriend would be like? What are the things he'd care about? What would he be interested in? Think about where you could go to meet someone like that. Good luck.

First of all I'm not a doctor, but a father. To be honest times are different to when we had friends way back in the ol days and this is how would talk to one of my children (both over 21).

First of all who says you need to be paired up like your friends. I think you may be trying to hard to be liked and as time goes on, you keep trying different things to be liked, be yourself. True friends shouldn't give a toss about what you look like and if your personality sucks then they should tell you. If your not looking for a "one night stand" then perhaps the person you do meet on the night is being told to much by you about you in what you want in a relationship....that person may be looking for what you're not looking for....can you see that person running away from you.

Hope that gives you something to thing about, all the best
