    It's not about 'managing to get one'. Some people just don't want one.

    Demisexual, I'm not pretty, and the boys in my school didn't view me as a girl, they looked through me. I didn't exist. Meh. I was a nerd, I focused on my schoolwork instead. I had no time or interest or care for such things.

    I have a boyfriend now at uni but he's far too good for me. He's too bloody wonderful.

    Still a nerd btw, even at uni.
    Me aswell

    I wouldn't actually say they were being emotionally immature, to be desired and seen as attractive is a universal human psychological need. If they cannot have that need fulfilled then whose to say a relationship wouldn't be what they needed?
    i think those with low self esteem feel the strong desire at 16 to be wanted by someone else. we arent emotionally developed enough at that age to be able to sustain a long lasting and healthy relationship. experience comes with age, life experience.

    I apologise in advance if this comes across as rude or insensitive but, barring cases where you went to a single gender secondary school, how does someone get to, like, 18 or 19 and not manage to get a boyfriend or girlfriend? I was a total dork in high school but even I managed to get a boyfriend at 15.
    I think a more important question should be "How can someone get to the age of 19+ and never had a job/ever worked?"

    Doesn't everybody desire to be wanted in some form or another though?

    Speaking from experience. Many a time a male who I hang out with has become attracted to me and asked me out. It never seems to stay as 'just friends'

    I've been asked out a few times but rejected them all. It's not that I can't get a boyfriend, just don't want one yet. I'm personally not ready for a relationship.

    nah but srs, ain't nobody got time fo' dat.
    What you said was so cliche! I've heard it many times, and this doesn't necessarily apply to you but.

    Normally people who say "they ain't got time for relationships", are the people who normally can't get into one in the same place.

    Just saying.

    Relatable. When us Asians find someone, it has to be straight to marriage and for life.
