Single Prospects

I'm 19 years old and I've always fallen short in social interactions, especially romantic ones. I haven't had any romantic interactions thus far, which doesn't concern me because I have more important things to worry about, but I'm concerned that by the time I'm not too busy to take part in the romantic scene, I'll be rejected for not being experienced enough. I think I'm fine with being single for the rest of my life, it'll definitely open up time for things I enjoy, but there is that nagging feeling of social pressure to be in a relationship by the time I'm in my 30s. Like, everyone now is telling me that I shouldn't concern myself with romance, but at the same time I've seen people say that getting practice early in life is better than later. I have my priorities in career and school, with very little wiggle room, but I feel like I'm procrastinating on something that might bite me later... I don't want a relationship nor need one, but what if my future self does?

  • Just pay attention to your present-day self. Nobody else. Don't hurry. Don't worry. You're doing just fine, I promise you. Congratulations on paying attention to your heart and your conscience.
