    Hopefully! Wouldn't like to start university in a relationship. Freshers would be half the fun.

    I've never had a shortage of guys who wanted to be boyfriends - a lot of guy mates don't understand 'just' mates :s However, I've never had a relationship beyond three months.. easily bored + I love to meet new people so my social group (and therefore dates) changes all the time.

    Maybe I'll settle down later but I can't see it happening anytime in the near future (:
    Same, people keep asking me out when I don't want to be in a relationship. But when I wanted to be in a relationship couple years ago, no one asked me out. I get easily bored and I can't stand when people get annoying (complaining about stupid things, thinking they own you, planning your future and thinking you want kids even though you don't!). And the conversations... When you see that there is no challenge ("Yeah, okay. Whatever, I don't think about stuff like that. I don't even know what it is so I don't care") for you.

    But I don't know. I never knew before either. Someone came to my life so suddenly and I started to spend more and more time with that person. I don't think that I'll meet anyone extraordinary next year. I'm having my gap year and hopefully having some interviews next autumn. I'm just bored of this town's small social circles. Maybe after next year. But I'm so cynical nowadays. I feel like I won't meet anyone who is similar to me so I don't have high hopes on this.

    I've just turned 18 so I suppose I still count.

    This time next year I will be at Uni so will have met loads of new people. Whether I will have met anyone I want to go out with or have the confidence to ask out I don't know but its looking more likely than last year.
    cheers for unbroken hopes and dreams. (:

    Hopefully not, i'm just overly picky. At the moment, i'm not really looking for anything too serious. Winter and romance could be lovely, but not right now. Can't be arsed if i'm honest.

    I was on a date on Friday, and I even bought dinner for both of us. He later texted me saying that I was a nice person, but he thought I tried a bit too hard to be a nice guy or something. One can never win :faceplam2:

    I think I probably will be... I'm not really that into relationships and would like to focus on my career (hahahaha) for a bit.

    EDIT: I'd genuinely love to know why I got a thumbs down for this...

    YOU GUYS ARE SO FUNNY
    Education+Career> getting girls

    Girls are distraction. Everyday Cinema and shopping and you're like WTF I ain't got a time for that! Need to get my As and Es first

      Yup. There's plenty of time to meet girls and there's no law that says you have to be attached while at uni. I wasn't, and a ****load of my friends weren't either - no shame in it whatsoever and you'll find that nobody cares.

      Good man. I broke with my girl when i was 17 and I hate the thought of being in a relationship again where you could expect to incur considerable expense in this age of bust instead of boom

      Possibly. That is until those people who are seeing someone are no longer seeing them are available. I'm fed up with guys trying it on when they're already with someone and they're well aware that I know. Or those who are genuinely just plain drunk who attempt to start a "chat".

      Gah. I just wish the guy I liked told me he likes me to and not to be so shy! Odd to say but I have a feeling I'm not geeky enough for him. Still.. Just a matter of playing the waiting game with him!

      Tbh no one has even liked me in two years

      All i get atm is guys wanting a **** but nothing else

      That attitude sucks as it leads to either believing "OMGZZZ ALL MEN ARE *******S" or the more rational view that the common denominator here is myself, therefore meaning my personality sucks hence no one stays interested. Thus old age will suck as i shall lose my looks and have nothing.

      Then i thought all i was ever good for is sex so why am i not giving into sex as this is the most affection i will ever get from a man as all other areas of myself suck as i must be stupid, boring, etc. Yes i know that logic sucks hence i'm on TSR moaning about it rather then getting laid in some bad club *shudders at the thought*

      Now i dont really know where i am, tbh i give up. Right now is obviously a 2 year plus stint where its not really happening for me...at all. I know a lot of people are single because they get offers but are fussy. I NEVER get asked out. Not saying i'd say yes to anybody as its pointless just being in a relationship for the sake of not being alone but it would be nice to know that i am actually fanciable, let alone anything more meaningful.

      I give myself say 3 years or so, finish uni, graduate, start earning lots of monkeys, maintain good family and friendships, continue with my hobbies (being mainly outdoor sports), be happy (then when im not looking....)

      I feel for you. Two years is a long time if you've had zero interest. My mate went four years without any offers either, it used to eat him up inside.

      To the OP. I've no idea, but probably. I'm not really looking for various reasons. I wouldn't mind someone, but I'm not overly fussed on finding anyone right now either.

      I've been single for the past 17 years. One more year is almost a definite.
