Am I too late for getting my first girlfriend?

I’m 22 years old, very average looking guy. I’m not an introvert nor an extrovert. I take my time to talk to people. My social skills aren’t that bad. I have very few friends and my social circle is almost non-existing. I don’t get invited to parties, but try to invite others. My relationship with my family is somewhat strained. I never had any relationship experience before. I don’t have any game with ladies. As I’m getting older, I’m really starting to get insecure and hopeless. I feel that it will so late that I will never get into a relationship.

P. S: I dress properly, have a job, and go to gym.

  • Of course it's not too late. Until that happens for you, just work on improving yourself. Try repairing your familial relationships, expand your social circle, and maybe look into joining some dating apps for more experience & opportunities. You sound like a great catch, don't lose hope 🙂

    • I have been using dating apps for years. I have had no matches and no dates whatsoever. I keep on uploading better pictures of myself. I still have had no success. I also try to expand my social circle, but it doesn’t work. Yes, I have lost hope.

    • @jamesmark1903 some things may just happen by chance, but keep hope alive.

    • And @johnboymuscles you're all talk until you put a 💍 on it 😉

  • James lemme tell you one think... your life and mine it's pretty same... expect I don't care what others think about me, I am not insecure about me... I am 21 too.. and average looking mayb be... but I get approached quite a few times but it's different that I don't want to be in a relationship as I have other goals to achieve first... just be yourself dude... don't try to change yourself to woo someone... don't act desparate or insecure... cus if you do that and get a girl your relationship will not last... there are so many things in the world other than girls... so don't neglect your other wishes cus you are not able to get this one... and oneday I guess you will find your perfect one.

    • I don’t think you understand. I’m getting older. I never had experience. How can you tell me to not care?

    • Dude I was wrong before... you and I we are different persons... your world revolves around girls mine is not... besides it is not some pleasant experience when you goes through a heart break... but it was my fault cus I rushed things... that's why I advised you not to rush things and be yourself... but its just an advise from a stranger... ignore it if you don't like my viewpoint... Good luck.

    • I’m not ignoring your point. I can’t rush into things, because I have tried that. Literally, no girl has said yes. I don’t even have the ability to rush, because it still gets me rejected. My world doesn’t revolves around girls. I just want to have the joy of making mistakes that people like you made in your first relationships. I didn’t have that joy. I want it. Don’t worry. Even if I try, it won’t work.

  • No, just because everyone in movies is already with the love of their lives by like 16 or whatever the fuck doesn't mean that's even a little bit the norm. A lot of people haven't dated by 22

    • Yeah dood I feel as if media has a really big impact on love Lives

    • Show All
    • Yeah, and I stumbled into it blindly and without meaning to. Sitting around moping about how you'll always be alone doesn't get you anywhere. Going up to people thinking "eh they're just gonna reject me" gives off a bad vibe people will notice and you won't find anyone with it.

    • Are you out of your mind? I have been telling you all along that I try to approach as many people as I can. I don’t show off that I have this fear of getting rejected. I don’t sit around.

  • Dood I may be young and not know a lot of things yet. But you shouldn't be too concerned with finding a partner. Try to be happy with what you have already. If your longing for companionship then visit a friend! If you want a good time then Pornhub!

    • Trust me. You don’t know anything. You don’t understand many things and should refrain from giving hurtful opinions. Let me tell you about something. You can’t be happy without having any relationships. People actively seek for relationships. Don’t tell me to be happy with what I have. I don’t have relationships. You should start worrying about yourself and troll here.

    • And not troll* here.

    • I need to worry about finding a girlfriend? Well why should I... I know that that's not the only way to be happy. It seems you have fallen victim to "duh media"

  • You're fine. Plenty of guys start late and in fact, my best friend didn't start really dating until he was like 30. He started online dating and realized that he was this irresistible woman magnet. I mean to be honest, before I saw him do it, I had no idea that women contacted guys on dating sites, but this guy got messaged like crazy. I was actually quite envious...

    Anyway, here's my suggestion: open a couple online dating profiles at Plenty of Fish and OK Cupid. At that point, only message the least attractive women and secure a few dates. Now, you work on your game -- refine what restaurants you bring them to, the activities you choose, the jokes you tell, etc. and at all times, always act like they're the most interesting and beautiful woman you've ever met. You'll be a complete expert in no time.

    • Here’s a thing bud. I have been trying all those things like online dating sites and apps like tinder, okcupid, bumble, plentyoffish... etc. for years. I try my best to put best pictures of myself. However, during all those years, I have had no matches whatsoever. I send messages to ladies, but don’t get any replies. I tried taking all that things too.

    • Show All
    • You know, after reading all of your responses, I agree with you -- you should just give up. I wouldn't want anyone I even remotely liked to date you.

    • Thanks! I know I’m not going to have any success.

  • Dude, no wonder people don't take you seriously.
    What is that picture you have there? Is it mocking some religion or something, people might find you offensive or weird for putting something like that. Instead put a pic of yourself if that is who you say you are.
    Second, if you really wanted to have a girlfriend you would is not hard in this age time. It sound like you are lacking something very important you don't wanna tell.
    But who am I to judge, my opinion is for you to take a break from this app and get out there more and make yourself available. You may try 20 times and fail 19 but you will get what you want.

    • I have tried 80+ times and rejected all the time.

    • I’ve a milder form of autism. It has disabled all my social functions beyond anything.

    • Well 80 timed ain't bad, keep trying.
      And I guess autism is bad, but you can get the best out of it try dating another person with autism I guess they would want to feel loved too. There should be websites that will hook you with autism dating, just search them up.

  • My friend just got his first kiss (at the young age of 25). It's never too late. Just take care of yourself

    • Don’t worry about it? You don’t understand others peoples problems. It’s easy for you to say, because you have had your fair share of experiencing relationships and sex. I don’t sit around worrying. I will not find anyone if I sit here. The problem is that I don’t sit around and wait. I take actions to change myself and my situation. The biggest problem is that taking actions doesn’t yield any good results or my actions barely make any change.

    • yes, you're right. I don't understand cuz even though Im not the best looking dude out there I still got women. you're a man so act like a man. be charming, be confident, show a girl who's the boss

    • I act confident and charming. It doesn’t work. I won’t be a virgin and inexperienced loser at 22.

  • Oh really seems like you need to work on yourself first. Good luck

  • I know it sucks dude... seeing others enjoy while here we are... all alone... avoiding eye contact whenever these discussions about sex and relationships come up... what I’ve learnt is to deal with these emotions on my own... and have faith that someday someone will come...

    • I don’t want to be like you. I don’t want to wait around. There is no such thing as a right person. No one just shows up automatically. Faith is a useless thing to have.
