NEVER BEEN IN A RELATIONSHIP? WATCH THIS
Is it…normal to have never had a relationship well into your 20s and 30s?
It took me 27 years to be in what I would consider a long-term relationship. I dated pretty prolifically throughout my twenties—I even wrote a whole book about the ins and outs of modern dating, which turned into a tome about the all-too-common phobia of commitment in the contemporary landscape. I dated many mehs , some maybes, and a few suitors with real potential, but between career shifts, moves, general immaturity, and a lack of mutual sustained interest, none of the flings blossomed into a long-term situation. And for years, I wondered how much of it was my fault. Was something wrong with me?
Or I began to like them less the more I got to know them. However, I am clueless when it comes to dating and always seem to do the wrong thing. I am introverted but fake being confident. At the end of the day I just feel like I am still too introverted and unique for anyone to seriously be interested in me. What can I do?
It's never fun to enter into a relationship with someone you really like to find out they have a hard time dealing with real issues that make up a serious adult relationship. Although the tendency is to wait and hope for change, experts say you may have to wait a while. Depending on the circumstances, you may be dating someone who doesn't really know what it means to be in an emotionally mature relationship. Being in an emotionally mature relationship means you can communicate your issues in an open, honest, and tactful way. You can work out issues as they come along.
Some people date a lot before they settle down, some people meet the love of their life in high school, and others hit the romance jackpot in their 40s. If you want to ease yourself into the world of dating, you can always opt for online dating or apps. Dating website can be great, as you can find people who match your profile in terms of interests, age etc. It can be really hard and scary to get out there, but nobody is going to come knocking on your door hopefully! Try to see your experience or lack of, depending on your situation as a filtering process, not a rejection or missing out. Some people find that going on lots of dates with different people gives them a confidence boost — they may enjoy getting compliments and feeling interested and desired.
