In this community tons of y'all are out there hittin the scence, but I am scared to death to try dating myself.
I have heard a lot of horror stories, and I don't want to be vulnerable or sad.
I'm also really scared of sex, and although I want to try it someday it's like... *sigh* I know guys like sex so for me it's kinda like "if I date a guy I have to have sex with him." I don't feel like there's many guys who want to wait more than a few months anymore...
I am 20 years old, and I had one boyfriend when I was 16. I ended up calling it off a few weeks later becuase I was so stressed out from knowing I even had a boyfriend! lol
Do any of you guys feel the same way? Have you overcome it?
Thanks a bunch, as always!
p. s. In case that didn't make any sense (somtimes I ramble) I DO want a boyfriend and to fall in love very very badly... I'm just frightened. :(

I'm 20, I would wait more than a few months for sex, even for marriage honestly. Guys like me seem rare, but you know, we exist! You shouldn't force yourself though, start really slow and be very open with your guy. Tell him you want to hold hands, or start out acting just as friends, ease into it and just be yourself. Everyone has their own pace, you know? And you just need to take it at a speed that you are comfortable! You are still REALLY young so don't feel like there's a need to rush either!! Just do you and try to be happy :)
