  • Registered Users Posts: 2,576 ✭✭✭monkeysnapper

    I was 17 before I had a girlfriend , I was very shy with girls. And the last thing I would have wanted was to talk about it with my parents. I got it sorted by my self in end and then started the rounds

    I was 17 before I kissed a girl, 19 before I had a proper GF. OP, what age are you? You are coming across as someone from the "sweet valley high" generation.

    Maybe he's gay?

    And maybe someone who can present a post like that is a total clown!

    My husband was 21 before he had his first girlfriend. My daughter is 15 and has no interest at all in dating. Thank christ for that I say, the longer they focus on their schoolwork the better!!! :D

    My recollection of being a teenager is that most girls seemed to always have a boyfriend on the go, but most boys rarely if ever have a girlfriend.

    I'm not sure how that worked, but the majority of guys I hung around with didn't have any kind of girlfriend until 17/18.

    Maybe these days people are actually less social then before.

    Facebook makes people think they are social by looking at strangers bull**** about what they ate for breakfast.

    Hmmmmmmm..... Think you may be on to something there. OP, stop stressing. You'll meet somebody when you meet somebody. Life happens at its own pace.

    Off topic for this thread I know, but you might think about postponing the backing horses for a few years yet. Wait till you have some cash before you throw it all away.

    You might try posting as 'yourself' next time. The advice and support will be just as freely given. We still won't know, or care, who you are in the outernet.

    Well spotted areyawell.

    My son is also 16 and hasnt got a girlfriend. I just tell him to enjoy the peace while he can.

    Being a teenager is a pain as it is without this sort of pressure. Id be far more worried if he wasnt hanging out with his buddies to be honest.
