What’s It Like To Have Never Been In A Relationship?

When someone asks, "Why are you still single?" 😒

Let's get this straight: There's nothing wrong with being single. Romantic relationships are NOT the end all, be all — but often, if you're single and have never been in a relationship, it comes with a stigma.

Perhaps you've always wanted to be in a relationship, but you simply haven't found the right person yet.

Maybe family and friends have been insisting that you need to find "the one," and you have a lot to say about the pressures of being a single person.

Or maybe you find the dating world a bit exhausting at times — and you have plenty of insight to share about WHY you feel it's actually hard to find the right match.

If you've always been single, we want to hear your story!
