I have always struggled since forever with social skills, and especially connecting with women. I am age 20 and never had a date or a girlfriend or sex and at this point im just starting to think that somethings wrong with me and that maybe I am just hardwired in some unique way that I will probably just be single forever, and so I shouldn't care.
Nothing is wrong with you. I think your situation is way more common than you would think. Forget about your age, its all about when you feel ready and you have met the right person. Take the pressure off of yourself and try to think positively. If it gets on top of you, I would suggest seeking out a counsellor. As it will help you put things into perspective. I’m 25 and I genuinely only feel like I’m now ready to start seriously dating etc. Throw the societal norms out of the window. Its your life, and it takes time to process your feelings about relationships when you didn't have the relationship you wanted and deserved to have with your dad. So just focus on having a good relationship with yourself.
Best of luck to you Anoymous, I remember those days all too well. You’ll be fine. 👍🏽

Just gotta get yourself out there more mate. Suppose some people are just "unlucky in love", but if you get yourself out there more then you stand more of a chance of meeting someone.
