What do you think of people who are 18+ and have never had any romantic or sexual relations towards anyone? What do you think is the reason they haven't yet had any experience?
As for those who are over 18 who are in this situation, what are your reasons?
I'm 21 and have never even romantically held hands or romantically hugged a guy before. In the past I would occasionally have guys show obvious interest in me, but I wouldn't feel the same. If I did feel the same, I'd get scared and basically run away. My reason is that I am protective of myself and fear getting hurt.

I think they are just scared or just haven't found the right girl or guy or simply don't have the courage to make a move on someone they like. Which would go with the first thing I've said or perhaps they just simply are not ready yet. I mean I didn't even have my first girlfriend until I think when I was almost 17 was when I had my first one.
And sure it was scary but after that it got easier you just have to take a chance when it comes to this kind of stuff, I mean you could meet the most perfect guy or girl in the world but you will still have a chance of being hurt by them. And you probably will be hurt by your partner when you have one, we all do it's part of growing up and learning and growing.
You Nichole have to let yourself be more open and not protective yourself so much, being safe is all good and well but what you must understand is that love and pain or the heart and pain go hand in hand, anyone who has ever been in a relationship has been hurt either by a breakup or by a fight.
You just have to take a chance and just say fuck it I'm gonna do it, I'm, gonna go for it and if you get hurt well that's part of life, you learn to avoid that kind of person but if you don't get hurt then you gain something great in return for taking that chance.2

My reasons would be that I had never fallen for someone to even consider dating them, until now...
Ultimately, it is because I was loking for a genuine connection and I never felt it until recently. Besides, I was in no hurry to get those things over with. I was more than comfortable with being single.2
