I'm 19 and I've never been kissed. How weird is that? I'm feeling increasingly depressed over this, along with the fact that I've also never had a boyfriend (obviously). Any advice?
And please don't be mean. I'm hard enough on myself as it is.

I was almost 21 before I kissed a girl.
I'm nearing 30 and have only had two (sort of) girlfriends. My total dating experiences have lasted a total of 6 months at most and 3-4 realistically speaking.
1) I think that if you're looking at dating someone of quality, and having meaningful relationships, then perhaps a goal like that is... more specific than we need to go. I MUST KISS SOMEBODY before Christmas, while admirable in that it's a lofty (and not impossible) goal, it may not be too realistic, depending on some things. Now, having a goal to learn something interesting, or get outside a shell, or have the courage to talk to a cute guy, that's a more reasonable goal to take on. If you make too specific a goal, you run the risk of getting depressed when it doesn't happen. Yes, make specific goals... but know limits as well.
Baby steps. It took me 3 weeks to feel comfortable putting my arm around the girl I was dating. I was and to a degree still am) that shy based on years of horrible experiences with girls.
