So its 11.45pm on a SATURDAY and i am feeling very whingy about my complete lack of life.
Actually big lie, have life, have job, nearly have degree. But don't have man. Now I know that this is not really that important, but all my friends have one and it bugs me. Very shallow yes. Does not help that all friends are beautiful stick insects, and I am just well medium.
I am 20 now and beginning to wonder if actually I will ever find anyone. I am in social situations a lot where I meet men (boys really we are all only 20!), I go out blah blah. But nobody ever looks at me. I am not hideously ugly honest, I think I am pretty nice as a person. But I do wonder why I have not had a serious boyfriend since I was like 15!
I am not looking for marriage, but really a relationship, or just some interest would be quite nice. I had a thingy with my housemate but I think thats only because I was there kwim?
I know this is so teenage angst and I have all the time on the world. But why ME! Please give me some words of wisdom!
(and am childfree BTW so they would not be an issue)
so you don't have kids?? why aren't you out enjoying youself then?? Enjoy your freedom!! I went out last week ad throughly enjoyed it, shame I can't do it all the time, but I have 3 kids to think about, and I am only 26!!
Hate to say it, and I'm sure you must have heard it before - but there'splentyoftime. I got married at 30, having thought I'd found 'the one' several times before that. Basically, I wasted 10 years of my life looking for someone.
Get out there, do something interesting with your life foryou. You'll then have the opportunity of meeting other people who have the same interests as you. If that leads to something, great. If it doesn't, you won't have wasted your time.
I married a fantastic man and love my kids, but still wish I'd spent my twenties doing something I had a passion about. (Not men!)
so if you are child free, why do u use mumsnet? not that you arent completely welcome, you are of course... its just not an abvious forum for a young free, single, no-responsibilities girl! i had a friend in school like you... trns out that men bit intimidated by her niceness and confidence... could that be the same for you?
no, no, no, completely welcome!!!!! really you are... just wondered why u use mumsnet! and comment away! just cos u aint got kids dont mean u dont know anything! u are objective! and sometimes its useful to have the opinion of someone who aint sleep deprived! very welcome!
