Depressed at 18

I feel so alone and bored. I'm 18 years old and I've been single like forever. I've never been in a real relationship and I'm a virgin (and I'm proud to be one). My sister always goes out with guys almost every weekend and sometimes I ask myself is something wrong with me?. I mean I know I'm not unattractive. I'm a shy person. All my friends are dating and I'm known as the single one.

I'm taking a gap year before varsity so I don't get out a lot. I wanna sound desperate but it's like I'll be single forever and I don't wanna be.

  • OMG! I am 18 and I have the same issue. Listen to me PLEASE. Most women feel that they need a man and don't want to be single forever. They will do anything to get a man. Most women want to change themselves for men (get skinner or
    prettier). And everyone will tell to "find a man who loves you for you." That is all bullshit. This is the 21st century. You DO NOT need a man to be happy. You NEED to feel wanted and feel pretty on your own. If you don't feel that way don't date. All of my friends with boyfriends have no confidence (they get their "confidence" from their boyfriend telling them they are pretty). When they breakup they will not have that man anymore to tell them they are pretty and they will not have an confidence to fall back on. You need real confidence so when you do get a boyfriend you already know you are pretty. And you won't need him to be there to tell you that you are pretty. Just be okay with yourself and think of a boyfriend as a plus but not a necessity. Believe you will feel much better about yourself. I learned that this summer. Ask me anything my email is Trust me I was in your position a few months ago.
