Excerpts:

“I’m 34 and a virgin. It just hasn’t happened for me.”

by Liz Richardson

Recently, we wrote a post where people shared the joys and struggles of what it’s like to have never been in a relationship. In the comments, many readers from the BuzzFeed Community felt seen and heard and shared their own experiences and perspectives as single people who have never been in a relationship.

Here are their stories:

1. “I’m 34 and a virgin. It just hasn’t happened for me.”
“I feel like there’s something wrong with me, and I just don’t want to deal with it. I feel like I’m unlovable, but I’m so comfortable in my own routine that I’m scared to let anyone disrupt it.”

2. “I am 24 years old, and I’ve never been in a relationship. Sometimes I think it’s the generation we live in.”
“Even though my family is close, I feel lonely. If it wasn’t for them or my canine friends, I wouldn’t have anyone to love or care about me. I still have hope and faith that someday the right person I match up with will walk into my life.”

6. “I’m a 31-year-old single lady. People tell me I’m NOT running out of time, but I still feel like I am.”
“I haven’t really had any relationships beyond awkward dates where I don’t feel anything for the poor guy. I want a relationship, and I really want kids, but I feel like I missed a window where the only guys left are not the good ones (or at least ones who are not my type).”

12. “I’m 33, and I’ve never kissed anyone, held hands, dated, flirted, or anything.”
“I’ve had crushes before, but after college, I stopped getting those. The anxiety won out. I would really like to be a mom though — I’d even like to adopt if I could — but my time is running out for that too. That’s the only part that really sucks about not being in a relationship with someone.”

13. “I’m 39, and I’ve never had a serious relationship, never had sex, and only been kissed once 20 years ago. I want a relationship and all the things that come with it, but nobody wants me.”

“All the people I’ve been interested in have not been interested in me — I don’t know why. I’m pretty sure I’m demisexual; I need to be in a loving committed relationship before I can have sex with someone. I know there are people out there who would be willing to wait for me. I’m so very lonely and want companionship more than anything, but I just can’t seem to find that someone.”
