    I’m only 18 and I’m not too worried about this but I don’t know if somethings wrong with me because in a generation where everyone moves so fast people react weirdly when I tell them I’ve never been in a relationship even though I’m only 18, my whole family says what’s wrong with me ( they judge eveything I do so it’s irrelevant anyways) . I keep to myself a lot and maybe that’s mainly why, I’ve always had the ‘best’ boys after me and everytime I talk to them they say they ‘rate’ how to myself I am and that I’m different in a good way. Although I get talked to everyday when I go out by strangers, and get compliments 24/7 from girls and strangers but boys I know will always go tell others they feeling me rather than myself. Even the most confident it’s like they shy around me I don’t get it and The fact they can’t tell me myself puts me off them. Plus is it weird that I don’t want to get with anyone? I feel like at this age I just want to focus on me and building myself rather than wasting my time on this relationship wave when most aren’t even real.

    Don't bother with a relationship since you don't really want one yet. It is better to focus on yourself first.

    I’m 16 in two weeks and I’ve never had a boyfriend. No boys have ever been interested in me and I never get compliments from strangers, only my friends but they compliment everyone. My friends have boyfriends and they seem so happy, i feel like I’m missing out :/

    Don't worry you're not missing much. Just wait until it happens naturally and focus on being the best version of yourself possible.

    I think it is good if you work on yourself. I like girls that are this way personally. It shows more independence and not necessarily relying on someone for gratification or building of their ego. I got into relationships early and I always felt better when single because a lot of these people didn't suit me and I would have been better placed focusing on myself

    Nothing wrong with never having a boyfriend, at 18 I think one should focus on themselves and their goals and if a guy comes a long, great. If not, still great. You avoid all the drama of being with guys just to be with them and not because you want to. That's why so many girls have drama in school because they feel like they need to have a guy when they don't. So good for you that you are avoid all that.

    You're very very young. Nothing wrong with not having a boyfriend at your age.

    Relax, enjoy life, do things that make you happy, have fun, do things with your friends. Focus on your ambition.

    You could try online dating, speed dating, joning clubs out of interest, meeting guys through hobbies, through meet ups, through education, through work, through your network and going out.

    Good luck
