I’m 26 years old; I never had a girlfriend, never kissed a girl, never been on a date, never had sex. I sometimes I wonder that I’m strange. I feel in inadequate. I see all my friends having girlfriends. I see them finding love, and a huge part of me wants that special someone.
The thing is that for most of my life, I wanted to have someone to love me for me. I yearned for that. I spent many years depressed almost to the brink of suicide, wanting a girl to love me. In my darkness hours, when I’m by myself, I keep on asking, why I can’t I find a girl that likes me romantically. I’m tired just being a friend to girls. It’ll be nice for once for a girl to look at me at a romantic way.
The thing is I'm way too nervous, shy and completely inexperienced. If a woman was flirting with me, I wouldn't even know she was as I am slow on social cues. I try to be myself and be genuine when I meet and talk to women, but they don't seem to be romantically interested in me.
I appreciate all the advice I can get, thanks for listening, and allowing me to share my struggle

Try online dating but also work on your self confidence. Can You blame a woman for not wanting a man so timid that he's not willing to make a move? Don't just except that part about yourself. Make a move. Make a change. I'm sure you're a nice guy but you gotta be a man and apart of being a man is making moves even when you are scared. Best wishes.0

I am facing the exact same problems as you and I'll be 25 in a couple months. Online dating never worked out good for me in the 2 years I've been on it. I've been asking around on Gag and people recommend meeting girls through sports clubs, volunteering, classes, coworkers, church, and everyday life. Unfortunately I work 60 hours a week with coworkers that live more than an hour away from me, and I rarely see girls in public. All in all, I haven't had a face to face convo with a girl since college. And I have all the nervousness and shyness you have. I'm going to try volunteering, church, and dance classes or a sports club if I can fit it in. Not everyone doing these things is single though, or what you're looking for...0
