Loneliness and the urge to get a girlfriend

I'm 18, Male and an only child.

For the past year, I've been feeling very lonely and I can't stop thinking what would be like to have a girlfriend, since the pandemic started these feelings were only amplified, and I've been stressing myself with these thoughts along with the thoughts of having a job and going to college.

I would like to know if it's normal to overthink this type of stuff, and how can I overcome this fear of being alone.

  • Sorry to tell you this, but your hormones are attacking your brain. All perfectly normal, except you have little opportunity for defense due to this stupid covid crap.
    I recommend you go talk to Navy recruiter. Enlistment can solve a s*** load of confusion and allow you time to figure out what you might really want..
    Good luck to you..

  • Hi I am woman and in my opinion everything your worrying about is completely normal I had the same worries when I was your age I wanted a boyfriend so badly it just takes time to figure out how you want to live your life finding a partner is important but it's more important to find the right person for the kind of way you wish to live your life so try not to worry about getting a girlfriend so much just be yourself and find people who share common interests cause you definitely don't want to get stuck with someone who isn't right for you and grow to hate them

  • You are better off alone.
    Women lie,cheat and are out for themselves.
    Learn ti appreciate your own qualities.
    YOU are the only you can trust.

  • It’s all right, you got plenty of time to find that special somebody, but take my advice, find her soon, don’t wait until you are 40 or 50 years old like I did. You better find that Girl by age 25 to 30 years old. or you’re doomed to be a Dud for life. You get busy finding that woman who will be your wife. Don’t make the same mistake I made and wait far too long. Pack your bag, go on that road and become a hermit and go hunt down that woman on the road and don’t you ever look back on the loser life you’ll be living 24/7 until you are a 40 year old loser like me. Take my advice, pack up, go down that road, find a beautiful woman and marry her, and be your person, don’t make the same mistake i made and throw my dream away of living a life on the road at the age of 20 or 21 years old. Go on that road, don’t you ever look back on anybody that’ll talk you out of going your own way, and move far away and live your dream of being a great Independent person and find a woman to marry in the future.
