    I'm 16 and it seems like all my friends are getting boyfriends. I'm probably not the greatest looking person but I haven't ever had a boyfriend and I just wanted to know if there were any other people that were in my shoes that actually found decent partners or am I just going to have to shack up with 20 cats?

    Sometimes I think I'll end up as a crazy cat lady. Haha. But seriously, I didn't get my first boyfriend until I was 20. Mainly because I either fell for the wrong types or I was too picky. Don't settle just because your friends are doing it.

    End thread.

    You're 16; go to school and don't worry about relationships. They hardly ever last at your age anyway; just go with the flow and don't become obsessed with getting a boyfriend.

    Don't worry, I haven't lost all hope or anything, I was just wondering how normal it is

    It is extremely normal.

    I have friends who are 20+ and have never had a "proper" relationship.

      This!

      Don't be that person who gets a gf/bf just because their peers are doing it and they do it just because they're afraid to be single.

      pahaha....thats exactly the same as me....literally all my friends have bf apart from me i havent had a bf either and i am 16. I really hope we dont end up as crazy cat ladies
      Hahaha yaaaay, found a kindred spirit I know, it's just really annoying when you go to sleepovers and stuff and they're all like "we went for this really romantic meal and there was a candle and OH MY GOD it was so ramantic" and you're just sat they're like "yeah, totally get what ya mean, hapens to me allllll the time" haha I dont know, maybe it's not like that for you

      Don't worry about getting a boyfriend. Start saving up some money now and make sure you go into a good career. You'l need a big house for all those cats.

      hahaha....no it is.....every time i hang with them they are constantly going on about how amazing their bfs are....you just want them to shut up and not rub it in your face....and then they go on double dates etc....oh to be a singleton
      Haha I know, all of my friends went on a couples day and I was just like "well I'm not invited then, you guys have fun". But on the bright side, the constant reassurance is great, the 'you are just going to meet an extra special guy' can only not sound patronizing after the first 20 times To be honest, I'm not too bothered about it because I think at the moment some of my friends are prioritizing their boyfriends way to much over their school work and I wan't to go to uni and I wouldn't want to with a boyfriend so if I did start a relationship, it would be with the knowledge that is has a 2 year expiry date :/

      I've never really tried to get a boyfriend tbh, just one of those sad stories where you like one person for a couple of years and so ignore every other person hahaha maybe I shouldn't really complain, my own fault really

      I'm 21 and haven't had a boyfriend. It used to get me down loads and I used to think there was something wrong with me. Now that I'm at uni and have met more guys I've realised that I'm just not ready for one as opposed to being unattractive. You're still so young and have got the rest of your life ahead of you. Focus on school and enjoying yourself rather than "finding someone". You just have to give it time
