Is it weird to be 18 and never have dated anyone?

Always when people ask me where my boyfriend is and I answer 'Oh I don't have one, actually I have never dated anyone' they are shocked and ask me: 'Why?'

So is it that weird to be my age and never have been in a relationship? (not for religious reasons, but just because I never had the chance to) I don't get people who act like it is the most obvious thing in the world and think it is so easy to get in a relationship. I've never even met someone who has shown some remotely interest in me.

  • I used to think the same thing but it honestly doesn't mean anything

    I'm 21 and the farthest I've been with a girl is hugging! lol

    The reason I'm still single many reasons but one of the main ones is. I don't feel I'm 'complete' enough to give myself to another person. So while I'm waiting to get a gf; I'm working on attributes I can fix upon myself.

    One thing I definitely will not do is wait to get a gf.

    I've learned I'm not going to let life pass me by and keep searching for a gf!

    I mean there is an entire world out there!

    There is definitely more to life than having a girlfriend

    If it happens it happens.

    If it doesn't it doesn't

    I wouldn't get too caught up in it because then you lose out on life. And no on can go back and re-live yesterday.

    Plus, don't the best things in life come when we least expect it?

    This works for me but I don't know if it works for you

    Whenever I'm can't find something; I learn to live life with out it.

    And then when I'm finally able to live life without the object; I find it! and then

    I realize I was so dependent on such a thing that it was kind of almost stupid.

    So after that I still keep it around but understand that I don't need anything to be happy or really help me. I am and can be independent on my own.

    Hope that makes sense and good luck!
