I've never been in a relationship or had a girlfriend up to this point. I wonder if a big factor is that I don't approach women. I hear through friends that a girl may say I'm cute, or get a flirtatious vibe from a female. But I'm kinda a shy guy and don't really make a first move in talking. I think I screwed my love life up this age.

Most of them? Yes. That tends to be how it is. Now... MY relationship started with me asking his mom (yes, I did that lmao) if I could ask him to homecoming in HS. And then I drove, I picked him up, I paid for dinner/tickets, and I walked him to his door afterwards. And we're getting married next summer so... success, I think.
He was the one who actually asked to make it official, but he asked on that date that I had asked him on. So... he started the relationship but I asked him out first. So... joint effort?
But yeah, mostly the guy does the approaching.1

Glad you said "most"... yea, thats the way it works... you gotta say something. I mean, unless you are very good at the relationship game, then you can MAKE her approach you. But im guessing you aren't.
You haven't been in a relationship because you haven't tried... and if you try, you may fail, but you gotta try again (with someone else).
so yea, Most relationships are started with the man approaching. Women can approach but their fear of rejection is ridiculous... like guys aren't scared of rejection... ugh0
