I am 19 turning 20... I have never had a girlfriend before, or tried having one. Is anyone like me?

I think that is pretty normal and actually a really smart thing to do. Focusing on living your own life and building your own life before you share it with someone else. my daughter is 13 and the silliness that goes on when they date is nuts and doesn't help you grow. I met my partner when I was 19 and the first few years were nuts as I wasn't really ready for a relationship but now that I am older (32) I can have a nice relationship with him.

I had my first date at 18 years old. I was rather shy and introvert during my teenage years. I did not approach a girl if she did not talk to me first. So I know what you mean. My brother is 3 years older than you and up till now he has not dated anyone yet. Try to mix with a group first, where there are lots of young people your age.

Well, some of my female friends had their first boyfriends only when they were 21-23 years old. My own brother had a first girlfriend only when he was almost 24 years old and now he's already married and they're gonna have a baby (he's 28 now). So don't give up! You'll never know when you meet your future spouse...what matters most is just keep your eyes open and try to socialize as best as possible through clubs or whatever good groups you can join. :-))))

This is not as rare as you think Right now i know dozens of friends and acquaintenaces that are alone I donot think it is something you try It just happens.One day with no advance warning you will meet someone and the chemistry is there and thus begins a relationship that may well endure At least we hoe it does Good Luck and Have a Great day
