How to Get over Not Having a Boyfriend/Girlfriend
When many of your friends are going steady but you've yet to find a boyfriend or girlfriend, it can often feel like you're left out. This can lead to feelings of loneliness or sadness, as well as wondering what it is that your friends are doing right while you're left alone. Rather than feeling down, it's important to realize that you never know when the right person might be just around the corner, and in the meantime, there is plenty to be getting on with as you establish your life and interests.
Learn to accept the fact that you are single.Everyone is single at one point, and it just so turns out that, at this stage in your life, you aren't with someone.
Think of all the good things you can do and enjoy while you are single.You can go out and enjoy yourself at a disco without worrying about what your girlfriend or boyfriend will think of you while you're doing your embarrassing chicken dance in front of all your friends. You can be yourself without having to worry about meeting anybody's standards or impressing them. You won't have to go on any possibly awkward dates, worry about what you wear or do anything that you don't want to do, such as see the stupid movie that only your girlfriend/boyfriend wants to see.
Listen to some music that is pro-being single.'Single Ladies' by Beyonce or 'Riding Solo' by Jason Derulo are pretty good esteem boosters for all those single.
Don't go looking for love.It will come to you when you are least expecting it, so enjoy life as a single person, and before you know it you will be granted with the gift of a girlfriend/boyfriend.
Ask your friends to tone down the couple talk.If your friends have been bragging to you about their girlfriend or boyfriend, ask them if they can stop and think about how this affects the single people in your friendship circle. Explain how you feel personally, whether it's causing you to feel alone, feel jealousy or a lowered sense of worth.
- Explain that you're really happy for your friend(s). However, point out that while their happiness is important to you, you feel that some of the expression of this happiness has crossed over into bragging and has left you feeling down.
Change the subject.If your friend keeps bragging about his or her relationship, change the topic and focus on something else for a bit. Remind your friend if they keep coming back to it that the time you spend together is about your friendship, not about their relationship.
Meet up with other friends who are still single.Have a girls' night out or have a boys-only hang out session in the park. Do all the things that the opposite gender might not like doing, such as painting your nails or making a crazy biking course full of jumps and other obstacles.
QuestionI'm jealous of my sisters; they're both older and have children. I'm 15 and want a child. What should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerBabysit for your sisters as often as you can. You will soon realize that having a baby is not as simple and wonderful as you imagine it to be. Children require incredible amounts of work and responsibility. Your life is no longer your own when you have a child; you have to make all your decisions based on what is best for your child. Becoming a young mother also severely limits your choices in life. Instead, focus on being a great aunt to your sisters' kids, and on working toward things that make you happy.Thanks!
QuestionWhat should I do if I'm worried I won't find a partner?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStop worrying. Chances are you don't have a bf/gf yet because you are particular and are holding out for exactly what you want, and that has not presented itself to you yet. THAT IS A GOOD THING! There is nothing wrong with being single - enjoy it. You will very likely find someone who is perfect for you. However, a relationship should not define your life. Get over your worries by making a good life for yourself and let that special someone just be the icing on the cake.Thanks!
QuestionWhy do girls who want to stay single refuse to have sex with me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNobody owes you sex, so wanting to stay single doesn't mean a woman should sleep with you. Maybe they're not attracted to you, or maybe they're religious and don't believe in having sex casually/before marriage.Thanks!
QuestionI'm 12, so I'm not allowed to date yet, but I always find myself fantasizing about having a boyfriend. I know I just have to wait until I'm older, but it's hard. What do I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerI know how you feel. You'll get there, don't worry. It's perfectly okay for you to fantasize about having a boyfriend, and in the meantime, just try to show your parents that you're responsible so that they will eventually be okay with you dating. Focus on your studies for now.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if all my friends have boyfriends? It's not like I can have a single girls night. What can I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMake some more friends. Try joining a club and finding people with mutual interests, or you can use the extra time to do something productive. If you want a girls night out with your friends who have boyfriends, ask and plan it. Sometimes friends just really want to hang with only the girls.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I get over a previous relationship?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMake a list of all the reasons your previous partner was not the right one for you - things you disagreed about, qualities you didn't care for, etc. Look at the list whenever you find yourself missing that person.Thanks!
QuestionAll my friends are in committed relationships, but I keep getting into bad relationships. What should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerExplore more and be more selective; don't keep dating the same type of person you've dated before and expect it to work out differently. Also, try not to get too discouraged -- a good relationship is worth waiting for, and each failed relationship is a learning experience about what to avoid or look out for in the future.Thanks!
QuestionI have just turned 36. I have never had a girl show any interest in me, ever. I have tried multiple online dating sites, I just end up being ghosted (if they even reply). Is it time to give up?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNo, it is not time to give up! You will find someone right for you. Just keep participating in the activities you love, and find someone who is interested in those same things. Don't try too hard and don't get impatient. The right girl is out there somewhere.Thanks!
QuestionI have been told I'm too big and black for women. I'm a bouncer and everybody is scared of me. When I show I'm a decent gentleman, girls never think I'm being honest. I hate women now and am really antisocial. What can I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWomen are very perceptive and can probably sense your underlying anger. There are a lot of "nice guys" out there who are really very angry and bitter towards women. That is not an attractive quality. Rage toward women in a large man is frightening. I recommend you get yourself some therapy to work through your anger issues.Thanks!
QuestionAll my friends have boyfriends. I'm not allowed to date, and I don't know many guys anyway. I just want someone to cuddle, hug and hang with. What can I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou don't need a boyfriend just because they do. Just be patient. In time, you will find what you are looking for.Thanks!
- If your friend invites you to go with them on a date with their girlfriend or boyfriend, it's wise not to go. Think how upset you'll be when they're smooching in the corner and you're all on your own.
- Always try to look good. Take a shower every day, brush your teeth and wear some nice deodorant/aftershave and clothes. You never know when your special someone might pop up!
- Don't try to get too jealous of the friends you have that are taken. This will upset them, and make you even unhappier.
- Don't worry you will eventually get a good boyfriend you just have to wait.
- Girls--do your makeup, fix your hair, and just do what you love.
- Always be confident, and be sure that you aren’t desperate for love; it will come to you eventually.
- Don't be too desperate for a girlfriend or boyfriend. This may repel some people.
- Never ever try to split your friend and his/her girlfriend/boyfriend up. Not only will your friend hate you, but you will become unpopular and it may upset you even more.
- If you're a guy, most girls expect you to find them. It's unlikely that they will just come up to you and say "Wanna be my boyfriend?"
- Don't be too stupid when doing things with your other single friends. A great big scar across your face might not be a turn on.
