I just reached my mid 20s and never had a serious relationship. I didn't focus much on dating when I was younger because: 1) I was an ugly kid/teen growing up 2) I focused on hobbies and friends. I casually dated and had a couple of horrible hookups, but nothing that pointed towards connecting with someone. I'm giving up on love. Being told by other people it's surprising I don't have a boyfriend is annoying. They say I have good looks (which I doubt) and am an interesting person once I let my guard down. What's the point of showing guys who I am if they only want to hookup anyways.
