    Would you date a boy who's pretty and nice and ... well, that pretty much sums him up?

    I'm 22 and virgin. Kind of bored of being single. In the last 2 months, 2 guys have confessed their feelings for me and I was like, WTF. I've been told that I'm too picky, but the truth is that I feel attracted to people very rarely. When I do, it's super intense, but sadly, always one-sided.

    So now there's this guy who's sweet and everything and I'm just wondering whether I should maybe date him, because it seems that I'm not going to meet someone who's the whole package, cause maybe such people simply don't exist. Plus, I don't want to stay a virgin forever - I want to have sex, yet I find it really hard to get to that stage with people - guess it has something to do with me being afraid of feeling vulnerable.

    By this point, you probably think that I sound like a whiny baby, haha. Cause yeah, chicks think that the guy is pretty (and he objectively is), he's nice with me, surprisingly not douchebaggy. Nothing to complain about, right? Yet, when we talk, I feel like we are on different wavelengths, I don't feel any connection. He doesn't stimulate me intellectually, lol. Plus, I've got a weird sense of humour, he often doesn't seem to 'get me'.

    I sometimes get really scared that I will never meet anyone whose weirdness matches mine.

    And then, I'll turn 30 and I'll settle for some random-ass dude, just because he likes me and I'll want to have babies.

    But now is too early for settling, right? I guess it's time to have fun, even if that means dating people who are not necessarily the best match. Maybe there's no such thing as best match at all?

    Yeah you are still young, just enjoy life and live it to the full. Obviously if you want to wait for that special one then that's fine, there's no right or wrong. Maybe see how it goes with this guy but don't rush it.
