Most Helpful Girl
It depends. I will use myself as an example. I know I'm pretty much young, 17 years of age, and considering you are in the same age bracket I think you may relate or understand. If you are trying to settle for boys in the same age bracket as you, chances are very small you will find someone willing to settle at such a young age. We set very high expectations yet they are still too immature to even think of something long term (not all though), so with the cycle of constantly getting hurt, some decide to stay single to heal and possibly wait till what they believe is the right age to get serious. Others do because they can't find their ideal partner. Like my case, after a year of healing from a break up, I have tried up and down to find a decent guy, one that doesn't simply want sex, one that doesn't ask for nudes. A respectful guy. I even tried dating apps, I simply gave up because I've lost hope in me ever finding someone.
