Not at all. Many people haven't had relationships due to circumstances that wouldn't allow them to, some just haven't really wanted relationships in their 20s (or haven't thought about having anything serious) like me : ) until like later. Some just haven't found someone who suits them or is compatible enough. Really, I don't judge at all. Everyone has their reasons. However I do know a lot of women are not as open minded as I am, but why would you wanna go for a woman who cares so much about that anyway? Just means she isn't for you if you can't be yourself with them.
It depends on whether or not it'd be a red flag for you. Like... if you make it a big conversation topic from the get-go, telling me why you've been single for so long and whatnot, it might become a bit of an issue for me as well. I'd be fine with 'just one' girlfriend otherwise. If you'd act like the relatively low number were something that was inherently bad, then that's more likely what would happen. (meaning that your actions, guided by that belief, would turn your belief into a reality. 'Self fulfilling prophecy', as I'm sure I make little to no sense after a night of not much sleep.)
Some women might be totally accepting of your reasoning, some women would view such severe social anxiety as something that could potentially prohibit the relationship. It's going to be individually dependent on the person.
For me, it'd be less about only having one girlfriend at your age and more about your age itself, seeing as there's a 13 year age gap :P I think that most women would do their best to understand and accept it, especially considering your anxiety.
It wouldn't be for me, but I do worry that guys would feel the same way about me. I've never had a relationship at all and I'll be 30 in a week.
It really depends on the girl. Some will see it that way, but others won't. I would wonder why a guy has a bunch of different relationships that didn't last, over one who has only had one. I think a lot of girls would be okay about it, especially once they know about the social anxiety.
I think women would want to know the reasons why. If you shared the fact that you have social anxiety, I think most women would understand and be okay with it. I have social anxiety myself, I think, so I have no room to judge. :P
No red flags here, your past doesn't distinguish your future. Don't listen to society's standards. I have no problem with dating someone who's never had a girlfriend or someone who's dated only long distance. You're not a bug.
Hmm, it is a red flag. But if you don't tell them about it unless the bring it up, they might just like you enough to not care, presuming your interaction with them is otherwise normal/pleasant. Lying to them if they ask about ex's is not a good idea.
If your opening line is "I have social anxiety and only 1 online girlfriend" they will run fast in the opposite direction.
Yeah it would be a red flag to most women. Can rationalize it however you like but the negative notion surrounding being single for long will be in the back of their head the whole time. The negative.. something is wrong with you for not being able to attract women for that long. Need to tackle that social anxiety head on.
No girl needs to know that until she actually gets to know you. If every girl told the guy she met that she just had sex the day before today and with 10 more guys before that and 1 dude at a beach resort , most would be 'turned off'
But thats not their business nor is you not having a girlfriend other than long distance
Either way at your age bracket it doesn't matter really. There is a lot of girls in the same position
What's age got to do with it these days? A lot of guys simply skip relationships altogether (they are a lot of work) their entire lives and work on themselves/their careers. I pretty much quit relationships after discovering Craigslist and then Backpage (and whatever replaces it when BP is gone) years ago. If I only knew how unnecessary relationships are when I was in my 20's and half a dozen gf's ago.
There's no age limit on love and compassion, only people that will oppose against
Some might care, but those are the ones you don't want anyways. I just wouldn't volunteer that info or put it out there. Wording is key though when you get asked about it. While having social anxiety is tough, I've had it, I wouldn't mention it. That sounds negative and lacking confidence.
I haven't even had an official relationship/gf yet and there's been ones who were obsessed with me or super clingy to the point they'd get mad at me if i had plans and offered to reschedule. I do want a relationship, but I won't put up with that.
