So I'm almost done with my sophomore year and it seems like all my friends are getting girlfriends and trying to set me up with differant girls. Not to mention my family is always on my ass about "finding a girl". But I don't feel the need to have a girlfriend and I still haven't had one. I feel like highschool relationships are pointless because after highschool the couple are more than likely to go in differant directions. Also, a girlfriend takes time and money out of my one true passion of fishing. So to the point, should I get a girlfriend just because it's the social norm and I don't want to appear gay? Even though I don't feel the need to have one?

I wouldn't necessarily say high school relationships are pointless.
We learn and gain experience from every relationship, so that we can carry that knowledge into our future one.
We learn a lot about ourselves when we form a close bond with someone.
Sometimes those things are good.
Sometimes they are bad.
Relationships can help mold us into more self aware and better human beings as a whole.
If you're not wanting to get a girlfriend because it's something you want, then don't get one !
You have plenty of time to invest yourself and time into another human being.
it's okay to be about yourself right now.
I respect your decision.
You have your own mind and stand firm behind what you're ready/not ready for.
You are making a mature choice.
Some people try to follow the social norm and do things they aren't ready for.
they end up regretting it and breaking hearts along the way.
You aren't doing that.
I think it's perfectly fine that you want to remain single for a while.0
