    Hi. About to hit 21 tomorrow and have never had a girlfriend. Did a post on this site a while back on what to do about it, which I have broadly followed. Now want an opinion on when it is too old to have never have had a girlfriend. Want one and went to an all-boys school, if that counts.

    There is no age at which you are too old to have never had a girlfriend - unless you are putting pressure on yourself to have one. Similarly to you I am 21 and have never had a girlfriend (and attended an all-male educational establishment too!), but I don't feel under any pressure to have one (unlike you).

    There isn't really an arbitrary age, but given that you convey in your post that you want one, I can understand that you will obviously feel some pressure and possibly some inadequacy.

    I'm more concerned by your apparently not being old enough to use the search function.

    ah, you'll be grand

    don't stress about getting one, just centre yourself in social circles with girls, don't appear desperate.

    You're fine. Some people don't until they're a bit older.

    I wouldn't start worrying until you're clocking 40 with thirty pet snakes and you call them your precious babies.

    Edit: Clearly, we have such a person in our midst. :rolleyes:

    In my opinion, I guess it should be up to 22....That's a good 7 years of being a teenager where you go out with your mates and have fun and stuff... 7 years is a long time..

    however everyone who has never had a girlfriend/boyfriend is going to say - " There's no age, just wait until the time is right ".... Of course there is truth to this, but really, it does get weird past a certain age....

    Girls will wonder why you haven't had a girlfriend, then they'll be like sheet he must have gential warts or something lol

    You actually get a good feeling when you make a thread and people reply, people don't want to search they want to start fresh, and post their experience or whatever, not what someone else has.

    When you look back at a part of your life and really regret not taking a chance with someone really special to you. That's when you're too old because that's when you've given up.

    People have different views, but to me it would be 21.

    Why not? If I got to 25 without any type of gf I would be near suicidal.

      At twenty-one now, myself, I can safely say that if you get to this age without having had a girlfriend then it's never going to happen.

      But seriously, it'll happen when it does. Or that's what they tell me. All I know is that women don't see me as boyfriend material, and that because of that, I've never done anything other than a friendly hug.

      But I've got more important things to think about at the moment, so I'm not thinking about it too much at the moment.
