So basically everywhere on tv and social media I see couples my age or younger than me and have bfs and kissed ppl and everything and has sex. I never have and it makes me so insecure and sad. Also so much ppl in my school have done these things too. What do you think?

Of course it’s normal. Not everyone is going to get to this stage with others at 17 or younger. Plus I think you shouldn’t base the normality of your life from tv because I’ve found it’s very unrealistic

You’ve come to people to tell you how to feel the same way you looked to others to compare your life to theirs, whether it’s approval or disapproval you’re still coming to people for opinions on your life, that’s wrong and you need to understand that.

I think its fairly normal, and its nothing to be ashamed about.

I didn't start dating my boyfriend until January, when I was 16, and I had kissed him a couple of times before but I was still 16 and had sex with him when I was 16.

It's okay to not want to do things or to just havent had done them until youre older. a lot of the people i know from primary school who had their first kiss when they were like 9 or 10, or their first time having sex when they were 14 or so say that they regret it now and wished they had waited. i'm sure that's not the case for everyone, and there's no shame in it either way

don't be too worried about it, basically (:

It’s normal, everyone does things at their own pace, everyone is different. Be your own person and don’t be bothered by what other people have said they’ve donen

Haven't even gotten close to getting a girlfriend yet. I think it's normal.

My first was just before I turned 18. I’m now at uni and I’m amazed at how little so many people have done (I thought I was late). Basically no it’s not weird, it’s perfectly normal

NORMAL

But can definitely relate to how you're feeling. I like to console myself by reminding myself that of course all that stuff is going to be on TV shows because generally speaking that makes for a more interesting story etc...
Think how boring an accurate depiction of teenage life would be in a movie?

Perfectly normal! Didn't have my first kiss til I was 17 and then after that I wasn't really kissing anyone on the regular until I was dating someone aged 24. Not everyone around you is as experienced as you might suppose, promise.

I’d say it’s normal, there’s no time limit on these things, so just take it as it comes

It's very damaging to base/compare your life to TV and social media content, they are merely entertainment and communication tools.
Just because so many people around you are doing it, doesn't mean you not doing it are therefore, abnormal. There are plenty of people who haven't done it, just like you, and it is perfectly normal. You are probably only feeling insecure and sad because that is what you're constantly seeing and focusing on. Also, human affinity to social conformity. Maybe look at it at a more holistic level?

Plus, isn't it a thing to be unique, special and different? You could just think that as according to you, you are one of the few people who haven't done it, congrats!

Yeah it's quite common, contrary to what you might be seeing around you or online.

I know people who are the same age as me (early 20s) and have never kissed anyone or had a relationship. It's not a race to the finish line but will definitely happen in it's own time..
