I just turned 21 and I still haven't learned to drive and I'm highly embarrassed about it. I know it's obviously about time that I should.
The topic can up with this guy I met and his first reponse was
"Wow, has that ever caused problems with boyfriends or relationships?" My reponse was that I haven't really dated much so, I'm unsure.
His advice to me was to start driving first before I ever think about dating. This is why I am taking a small poll. Thanks in advance!

Most Helpful Guy
I have tried dating a girl without a car and it turned out badly. She got very irrational with me and wanted to see me too much. I gave it a chance thinking she'd get one soon but then as time went on I found out she has no intention on getting one for 2 years and she would say things like she "couldn't be bothered" to get oil changes.
At the time I believe she was 22 so this was odd. But this also lead to her having parents heavily involved in everything she was doing. She was always with them. If she had to go somewhere, it ended up on her parents. She also lived with her parents so "staying in" meant a round trip leading back to my place which added up on my car. Having overprotective parents then lead to her not being able to spend the night turning my daily commute into basically 100 miles each day. I couldn't deal with that in addition to her giving me a little bit of money once out of all the time we dated.
Now having mentioned that mess... if you're intending on getting one soon I notice guys are much more friendly about a girl's situation compared to the other way around. Most guys will bear with such a situation. I do suggest getting your own license and car asap though because it's still going to be inconvenient. If a guy is willing to deal with it, be polite and offer some gas money and such.
Keep in mind distance between each other plays very heavily here. It's much different if the person's practically next door compared to another town.0
