    I've had a pretty sad life. I've never had a girlfriend either as well as a virgin! Everyone my age is either in a relationship or engaged! I don't have many friends either! Girls aren't interested in me! What can I do?

    Get out there. Make an effort, respectfully so. If you have realistic expectations, like having friends, you can get that if you work for it and put yourself out there. Work your way up from there. Nobody said it'll be easy or that you will reap results right away, but keep at it. As adults, we need to do the work and can't expect it to fall into our laps. Some people are more fortunate than others and have more opportunities, but almost everyone has to work to get what they want out of life and keep it. Self-pity is certainly not going to help.

    PS. Many people your age have not gone abroad. Not considered "sad" or unheard of.

    Here's a quote that I've always loved:

    "You don't have to be the bad guy. You are the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe. And you are capable of amazing things. Because you are the Special. And so am I. And so is everyone. The prophecy is made up, but it's also true. It's about all of us. Right now, it's about you. And you... still... can change everything." The Lego Movie

    Get out there, kick some ass and have fun!

    Just start doing things. It doesn't matter what - work, volunteering, clubs, learn a skill, start taking trips abroad. The more you do the more confidence yuo'll feel and the more interesting you will be - the other stuff will fall int place.

    Well as for the thread title, book some easyjet (or similar) tickets to a continental city and find an airbnb, or just a cheap hotel room. You will then have ticked the 'been abroad' box and not spent much in the process.

    I feel this thread is mainly aimed at the second point rather than being abroad, which can be relatively simple to fix at your age.

    What have you actually tried? When you meet girls do you come across as boring or desperate? If yes then you do need to change that! Meet new people by joining a club if you have time, or just try meetups on meetup.com

    If you haven't approached any girls then they're not going to magically be wrapped around your finger.
