    Is anyone in here had never been in a relationship or had never been approached by their opposite sex?

    I had a slight connection from a boy in my class in primary school but I wouldn’t necessary call it as a progress of going into a relationship since we were young and never shown any signs of dating... except that we both know we like each other but had never admitted/confessed with each other only to be found out by the people on our class. He didn’t made a move on me and so was me. I’m now 17 and still never had a bf...

    What do you think?

    I have never been in a relationship, 17 isn't bad, try being 22 lol but yeah I worry a lot now, when I was 17 I was like I'm fine, I'm young, which is true, so don't worry.
    I've had guys approach me, but mostly in the club and they come off a bit creepy. Also older creepy men approach me in the day time , idk soon I hope I'll meet someone.

    Living on planet Earth as a man for 24 years. Never had a girlfriend in my life and never been in a relationship.

    What I think of your situation? It's a good situation, make the most of it! If you like him go for it. If for whatever reason you get rejected don't worry. Age is just a number - trust me. I'm 24. People say a sorts to me, as if I give a ****. So many other things to achieve in life before a relationship. I would have not got a First Class degree if I had a girlfriend

    Same here. I am a 24 year old who like yourself have never been in a relationship. Never had a girlfriend - I guess it was down to the situations I have been in. I went to an all-boy high school - I regret it but my parents wanted me there. University was my first encounter of girls but when I was at uni all I ever wanted was a FIRST CLASS DEGREE. DID ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING FOR IT, AND THAT MEANT NO SERIOUS RELATIONSHIPS.

    Now, I'm willing to get a girlfriend AFTER I sort out my other personal **** like getting a job

    I was 18 when I had my first relationship. I wouldn't worry so much at the moment, a lot of people are in the same position as you. You don't want to force yourself to pretend to like someone just to fulfil that need for a boyfriend. The right person will come along in time. I would prioritise myself with other things in my life at the moment - friends, schoolwork, family and planning my career for the future.

    Please don't rush into a relationship. I've been in a similar position to you, but I regret jumping into a relationship. When the right guy is there, you will know. Don't get into a relationship for the sake of having one, because trust me, you will regret it.

    I had my first bf at 17, and I was not in the right place to have a relationship. I wanted to just feel wanted and loved, so I ended up with a guy I knew wasn't right for me since the beginning. I relied on the relationship as an escape from my (*****y) reality and as a source of happiness, but the relationship made me far from happy - it broke my confidence. The guy was an ******** for many, many reasons: he made me more insecure because of his *****y comments, he was immature (despite being older than me), disrespectful and put zero effort into the relationship. I look back and cringe how I begged him to stay at times when our r/s was on the rocks and when we broke up. I couldn't be happier that I'm out of the hell I was in, and that I've realised how much better I could do - physically and personality wise. Use this as what not to do

    tl;dr Don't rush into anything, enjoy being single and just focus on yourself. The right person will come when you least expect it. You're still very young

    I've never been on a relationship but I have been under and above one. Not sure about beside though, have you been next to one? Some of my friends have been between a relationship and some have been beneath, but I've never seen anyone within a relationship. They do wonder what it would be like to be inside a relationship but sometimes relationships aren't meant to be experienced across.

    I like me some prepositions :awesome:

    I hope you’ll find your right one soon.

    Not seeing anyone who have a potential feelings or interests to me affects my self- confidence. It makes me feel insecure about my looks and character and make me hate myself even more. More than dating, i just want to find someone who could appreciate me but I don’t necessarily feel the urge to date them.- tbh im not that desperate to date someone, most of the time I’m too lazy to make an effort to talk to someone. The last guy I liked was 3 years ago and few months before that, most of the guys i liked didn’t took a year. The longest I had was in primary school for 4 years the one I mentioned on the description.

    Tbf I am glad i'm not in a relationship for now. Might as well go out there and find someone who I truly like and can live with. Don't want to get into a relationship which isn't for me and then come out of it hurt.

    Thanks. Personally, besides getting low attention from boys, I also have high standards so we’re both making walls which stops us from reaching each other 😂
    I’ve liked different guys from the past but I never imagined dating them until this time, I can’t imagine a relationship with the guys on my 6th form.
