    Should I just give up?

    At the risk of coming across as “one of those guys”, I’ll tell my story. I’m in my mid-20s and I’ve never had a boyfriend, never slept with someone, let alone been kissed. My entire “romantic life” consisted of two first dates that never had a followup. One was a few years ago and the guy just gave some lame excuse about why he was too busy for a date, and the other guy was last week. The guy seemed really interested (he was the one that asked me out) on the first date and seemed very open and seemed to enjoy the date and we even discussed a location and day for a second date to happen this week. We hung out a few days later for a little bit (initiated by me) just because we were both at the same place at the same time. It’s been a week and he has yet to say a word to me since.

    Those two “dates” are it and for those two dates I’ve had countless “I’m not interested”s. I don’t think I’m particularly ugly or unattractive and plenty of girls (unfortunately not guys) have said they would date me in a heartbeat. I don’t think my personality is that bad either. I mean, I talk a lot and stuff, but I try to be kind and generous and funny and stuff. I do have a crippling fear of actually asking boys out (which is why both original dates were suggested by the other guy), but is that really such a huge problem? I also hear countless of “keep up hope. You’ll find someone eventually”, but after about 25 years of literally nothing, it’s hard to believe that I will.
