Anxious About Relationships Watch

    I'll be 19 in a few months and I'll be starting university in October. I'm really anxious about the whole relationship thing because I've never kissed anyone, dated anyone or had sex. I'm worried I'll be awful at all of it, and the thought of how awkward a first kiss/sex will be makes me want to crawl under a rock and claim it as my home.

    It seems like lately this is all I can think about, all my friends seem to be in relationships or ready for one and it's just not true for me. I'm not asexual, I think mostly I'm just really really anxious about it.

    Any advice?

    Yes, its awkward to start a relationship but its usually worthwhile. You need to think of the pluses like companionship and love from a relationship. Also sex.

    If you do meet someone there it'll probably come naturally, and practice makes perfect anyway.
