Anonymous said: I'm 17 and have never been in a relationship. I've been on a date with a guy, and it fizzled out. I've chatted with guys online and in person but nothing has ever come out of it. I used to think all I wanted was a boyfriend, but when I had the opportunity to have one, I ran away (figuratively). Is there something wrong with me? Or am I just destined to be a loner forever?
Only if you think there’s something wrong with me, too.
I wasn’t in a relationship until I was 19.
And come on babe, all you wanted was a boyfriend? That’s so boring. Want to learn guitar. Want to be a Photoshop expert. Want to dance the tango in Argentina. Want to write a better American history book. Want to taste every Baskin Robbins ice cream flavor. Want to be a sommelier as an excuse to eat more cheese. Want to graduate with a degree in molecular biology. Want to be fluent in Mandarin. Want to photograph the sunrise every day for a month straight. Want to write your grandmother’s life story. Want to be a volunteer firefighter. Want to join Cirque du Soleil. Want to make incredible guacamole. Want to design an app that tells you which of your friends are free to hang out. Even want to watch every action movie ever filmed. But for the love of science, want something cooler than a boyfriend.
