  • you should try to talk to guys aswell cause not all guys will go talk to the girl plus guys like a girl who will aproach him, it shows that you have more interest in him than any girl he has to ask.
  • You won't be alone. Develop yourself as a person and involve yourself in service activities and you will meet someone like yourself.
  • go to social activities that you truly enjoy...you have to know yourself and develop YOURSELF...having a guy say those words isn't all women want to hear and it's not the best thing that could ever happen to you...lots of men say and act like they love you when they dont, just in order to get what they want (sex/popularity/dates/material things) so be careful....once you DO start dating, here's a pretty reliable way to know if a guy is sincere: if a person's not calling you, they're not into you.....i hope i'm not overwhelming you with answers, i'm only trying to be helpful....thinking of the rest of your life can be overwhelming, just take it easy on yourself and BE yourself - you dont want to attract people being fake
  • You do not need a boyfriend to validate yourself. You are complete as you are. Learn to love and accept yourself, without judgment. You are wonderful, great, magnificent, stupendous, and really a super woman. Acknowledge your own greatness and enjoy it. When you are able to feel comfortable with yourself, just the way you are, you will find others will be attracted to you because they too seek your approval. When you are comfortable with yourself you will be attracted to others who are also comfortable with themselves. Honor yourself and you will choose only those who honor themselves as friends. You will find your frineds and partners most when you understand you don't need them.
  • Dont feel that way.... just look around... what your looking for maybe right in front of you...take it slow and if you find someone take it slow very slow...i cant stress that anymore then saying it 1000 times! you have to be friends before lovers.... try the bars i know that's not the best place to find love but it's good place to meet people but go when it opens and take a friend Good Luck My Friend! Dont worry!!!
  • There is a difference between alone and lonely. If you are alone, then that's not too bad. If you are lonely, go out and meet people. Join groups that share your interests and meet guys that way. Everyone finds someone, just not on the same time frame.
  • you gotta start putting out those vibes man. Go to the gym, hang around the guys. Wear make up, buy new clothes. Make yourself seen. I dont know what you do but for god sake, dont stay home on a Friday night if you are single. don't put your head down, hold it up high. Walk like yo are walking on the runway and flirt.
  • I was 41. And now I am sitting within 4 feet of the man I will love forever. :) Just be patient, and don't feel that you need 'someone' just to keep from being alone. Even if you never find that great love, let yourself enjoy the little loves of family and friends.
  • First thing, stay away from those that are suave, cool, smooth, and have a jiggle or a jive in their step. They will usually be the first to come to you, and you WILL get hurt! They will turn you against men alltogether. You have one out there, I GUARANTEE you! You just may have to drive him out from under the bed with a shotgun........
  • if you are desperate you will not find anyone. they always come around when you not expecting it. although internet sites are effectively.
  • Sometimes love comes late. But when it comes late it is always strong, intense and long lasting. You both will have matured. Youve seen a little of the world. When you finally find each other your love will be honest, deep,and passionate. You will have the advantage of maturity. There will be an understanding that young love never feels. Patience.
  • Continue to be yourself."I am just me" is a perfect name and a perfect way to be. No phoniness, just plain honesty.
  • Joining a church is a good way to meet the right kind of men. Read your Bible!
  • Hi Gosh that is an awesome question! I myself am 26 and I am terrified of being alone until I die! I on the other hand have had a boyfriend and unfortunatly all three were bad relationships that did nothing but scar me! I am afraid of any man who tries to show me affection! So, your alright girl! There is someone out there for you just as there is for me! We just have to be patient!! Don't push it! You might not like what you end up with!!
  • Just enjoy your independance and dont be in a rush for a relationship. When i was in my 20's all i wanted was to find "the right one", get married, have kids etc. I got it wrong. The "right one" raped me and hit the children. I now wish I had just waited, because if I had, the "right one" would have eventually come along and me and my kids wouldn't have had to go through such terrible times. - not saying that will ever happen to you. Get out there, dont look for love, look for friends, cherish your true friends, enjoy your life, then one day, he'll be there. And when he says I love you, you'll know he means it.
  • I feel for you. I'm 25 myself and never had a gf never even been on a date. I get that feeling of having my life fee like its empty, even though I have family and friends it's just not the same. I wish I could give you advice but I'm kind of looking for some myself. But it's good to know that there is more people out there that have never found another. At least your not alone in being alone.
  • Don't worry, you have the rest of your life ahead of you, but you have to put in some effort to, have more conversations with the people who are potential dates
  • Don't look at it like you're alone. There's tons of people out there in your position. I would honestly have liked to never hear those words from all these guys that were wrong for me and have waited for the one who is right. Take your time. You will find someone if you just keep your eyes and your heart open.
  • You can view the glass as half empty or as half full. At least you are not 26 and divorced with a child. You have taken longer to find a guy that will suit you, but it doesn't mean it won't happen. Be confident in yourself. Pick up a relationship advice book from your local bookstore. Don't just jump at the first guy who says he "loves" you without analyzing the situation. You will find your zen.
  • You are not alone. You are very young yet. Don't sweat it. Everything will work out.
  • You shouldn't be scared. I think that 26 is a good age to still be looking. I'm sure by now that you have your life together so that's good. You don't need a man to validate who you are; when the time is right the right man will show up in your life. A lot of women like myself haven't even heard the words "I love you" so don't get stressed out over that. When you find him, I'm sure he will be great and caring!
  • starting dating a man instead of a boy. That will give you a good start.
  • Find your love. The things you already love. Find the places all around you, where you genuinely enjoy, appreciate, and love something. Whether is a hobby or project or activity or a beautiful place, what kinds of things light you up with appreciation and gratitude? What makes you smile? Explore the things that you love. The more you get into them, the more you will gradually meet compatible people, who love the same things as you! When people share what they love, it brings them together.
  • You are only 26 that's much too young to say "never". Don't just live to hear the words "I love you", instead look for men that have some of the same interest you do. Look for friends first in them you will find your lover. The fact that you have not had a boyfriend up to now only means you haven't found the right person yet. That's all.
  • [love is patient.] Im sure there is nothing wrong. You need to make yourself available. Be outgoing and spontaneous - be ready to fall in love or lust. dont be afraid of it or turn a shoulder to it, because your unfamiliar to it. Neither should you settle for something or someone you dont want, just because you like the 'idea' of it. Find someone youre crazy about and go for it. sometimes you need to make the effort rather than wait for love to find you. listen to Natasha Beddingfield - How do you do for inspiration. hope I helped.
  • oh i am really sorry!! no one is alone all their life just get out there! you're still young so dont wory about settling down! if you're happy, then thats what matters!
  • Relax just because society is pressuring you to hurry, hurry, hurry it's not for everyone. My husband was 43 when we married never dated, nothing. Sometimes your career comes and you can get so caught up with it. Besides you are still very young.That is good that you are very particular It must be someone very special that you are waiting on!
  • Is there a reason,or have you just not found the right one, I believe the right one will come along for you eventually. The good thing is you haven't had to deal with any heart aches, and keep your head up, you must be someone special, because the best is always saved for last.
  • nows a good a time as any to put yourself out there. youll find mr. right ^^
  • get out der and show the world who u are!!!!!!
  • Put yourself out there. Go out clubing with some of your mates.
  • Try match.com or one of those other dating websites... it works for a lot of people... and you can see what kind of guy you really like.
  • My Aunt was 31 before she married. It wasn't until she was content with herself and the way her life was going that the perfect guy came along. You don't have rush into marriage, its not always a bed of roses. You're young, enjoy singledom.
  • how do you know that? how do you really know that know one has ever loved you? you dont! i was in several relationships and i never felt that any one loved me because no one ever sed it. but love means more than just words in actions and feelings, just because someone hasnt sed it it doesnt mean they dnt want to. women are more confident than men, we pass are love around all the time, but guys just find it hard to pluck up the confidence. there is some one out there for us all,you may have met them!just keep going, n next time your in a relationship look for the signals, dont look for the words.
  • Don't worry..my cousin was single untill she was 36 and there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING wrong with her! Sometimes people just look to hard, or look in the wrond places. You shouldn't try to force anything.
  • No lie but I will probably end up like that. I don't really do much but play video games and go on the computer and work. Pretty okay life for me I guess. I'm having fun at least and thats what matters. But definitely you will find that special someone in the future. Just be yourself and the right one "will" come.
  • Don't feel bad. These things come at all different times of life for different people. I had a classmate that recently got a boyfriend for the first time and she is 40 years old!
  • you don't need lots of guys - you just need one, the right one when you get it you will value those words so much more than you would if you had loads of guys say them to you i know its hard but be patient :) what's meant to happen will happen
  • hey if you havent got one by now ,something could be wrong with your standards or your personality
  • I don't know what it's like to be you, but I do know what it's like to be alone and worry that you will never find that "special someone". I think the best thing to do is to work backwards....if you think of your priorities in life and put them in order, with true love being number 1, then work backwards from there. What's the most important thing after that? Then start doing it. Sometimes you can end up doing none of the things on your list because you're stuck on number 1, free your self up a bit and give yourself a break....!
  • First, stop looking for Mr. Right What are YOU interested in? Do you like to read, dance, paint...? Sign up for a class, join a church, join a club (see your local library)...any one of these things will put you in contact with people who have something in common with you. This is a great way to make new friends. Who knows, maybe the "love of your life" is also looking for the "love of his life" (YOU). Funny, when you stop looking for love, it finds you. I wish you the best!
  • Relax, love finds everyone eventually. Some day, at times you may consider the time you spent ''alone'' precious. :)
  • You know what i have learned, Love comes when you LEAST expect it. It took me forever to find my guy and i am absolutly in love with him! Give up completly and just one day, you might get surprised. ;) trust me Have you tried looking on the internet>? i know that some people hate even the idea but i know ALOT of people who met their One and only on websites like myspace and such. just be careful! Good luck honey but i just know you will find your one!
  • hey girl ! wat u waiting for if i was you id get a super make ova 2 make u feel betta and that will improve everyfing else like your confidence and thats wat men/boys like trust me on that lol u will shine after your makeova soo much u will surley feel like a totally different person and u aint alone you neva will be and also neva eva worry to much about fingz like this it will only get you down when you could be happy meeting new people lol go 4 it !!!!!!
  • dont worry there i alway someone out there for you, my best friend hade the same problem but he's 35 yrs old now he have found his true love.
  • what marywebb has mentioned is very true.just wait patiently and we all are meant to find love. you will find the right person when the right time comes alone.be positive. in the mean time concentrate on a hobby and spend time on it. love comes when you are not looking. good luck and dont feel alone. you have everyone in Answerbag responding to you. that shows you are not alone :) chin up smile now
  • oh hun its hard but everyone is right. you must try and be patient, and i think when u relax over this issue you will find something comes from around the corner that u never imagined. my mum married at 40, and once, when asked by an oxford scholar (thats where she worked in the 70's) was she with anyone she answered - no...and he smiled and said 'be ready when it happens'. he was right! forget about it for now hun x
  • Don't lose heart! My sister didn't find her "the one" until she was 30, I didn't find mine until I was 26, several friends of mine are in their late 20s and have just found theirs. It's worth waiting for! So many people are in such a hurry that they won't wait for "Mr. Right" so they settle for "Mr. Right Now" and so often it ends in heartbreak. You are a worthwhile person, and worth the waiting, hard as it may be. Take this time to mature as a person and do everything you want to do that would be harder to do once you have a family. Volunteer, travel, enjoy not having to answer to anyone! :)
  • HAY SMILE YOU WILL FIND SOMEONE TO LOVE , BUT FRIST YOU HAVE TO STOP LOOKING ,SOUNDS HARD TO BELEIVE I KNOW BUT JUST TRY AND YOU NEVER KNOW ,WE ALL KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND SOMETHING WE REALY WANT TO FIND ,DON`T WE ? STOP LOOKING SO HARD AND IT WILL COME HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU !!!
  • I'm sure you will find the right man in your life soon. At least you haven't had to deal with guys breaking your heart all your life.
  • +Pts.4.U.all! Responses to "iamjustme" question were heart warming and touching.
  • I understand the dreaded fear that you face, although we as humans are broadcast radios of our thoughts. By letting that fear consume your thought process, you are signaling others that you want to be alone. This was a hard concept for myself to understand at first, although the more that I have… and my family have changed their thinking. We have been receiving what we want from our thoughts. Mat 21:22 And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. It is important to overcome the issues we face. By taking the long way NOT the short cuts, for the quick and easy is in fact long and painful. Rev 3:5 The one who overcomes, this one will be clothed in white clothing. And I will not blot out his name out of the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
  • Think of all the people that have said they are in love and then get divorced. Strange how people can fall in and out of love in a lifetime. It will come but when you least expect it.
  • I am also 26. I felt the same way you did at one point. I think that things happen when you least expect them to. If you are out looking for a boyfriend, you will never meet one. But if you are trying to get a promotion at work, that is probably when you will meet the man of your dreams.
  • Open yourself up alittle more. Don't put yourself out there instantly--show the man your true self and don't feel bad about it. Be ready for surprises, I met my husband 6 years ago and he is the TOTAL opposite of me and we are still going strong.
  • Pray and ask the Lord to find you a mate and trust Him to do what's best. After all, He made Eve and brought her to the man. See the first few chapters of Genesis in the Bible. God Loves you and has a man picked out for you.
  • If you really want to meet someone special, the first step is meeting people. A lot of people. Try putting yourself out there. Take a recreational class or join a singles club. Aim to make friends everywhere you go. Go where the single guys are and make yourself available. If you aren't comfortable in the typical places, and don't already work too much, try a part-time waitressing job--you meet a LOT of people from all walks of life. There is someone for everyone in this big world, and it only takes one to be 'the' one.
  • i think you go out with your friends and have sonme fun,on the other side don't be scared because i believe that all of us has our own destiny,maybe the man that is destined to you is still searching for you.Just enjoy your life while you are still single ok.
  • There is nothing wrong with not having been with someone yet cause at least you have seen a lot of and have done things that you wanted. Also you haven't had to cope with getting left high and dry when you weren't ready or even saw it coming. So keep your head up and like the beautiful saying all good things come to those who wait.
  • With God in your life, you could never be alone. I think there's always someone out there for each and everyone of us. And right now, I think there's a guy in the same boat as you =] Don't give up
  • I know it does not feel like this when you are 26, I was 26 once myself, but the reality is this. You need to be something yourself first, chase your dream education, hobbys, whatever they might be. Every where you look you can see unhappy couples. The only dream they chased was finding that "someone" When it's all said and done it is the people who first found themself and then found someone to share themself with. Other wise when you look back you realize you expected someone else to fullfill you. Then when it is the right time, that someone will show up, just don't grab on to the first one who does. Take your time at 26 there is lots of time to find a real soulmate.
  • I used to think that way. Sometimes it's good to be alone and sometimes it sucks. I like hearing those words to but it has to come from the right one. Anybody can say "I love you" but it doesn't mean a damn thing if that man isn't right for you.
  • I think the main thing that you need to think about here is that..you have longed for these words for so long your happiness has become dependant on it. If you can get to a point in your life where you are happy with yourself those words will not be as crucial. Although some people may have many boyfriends in their lives and heard many I love you's.. Its only one time that really counts...from that person you will spend the rest of your life with.So although it may not have happened yet..that is no indication that it will not. You are still very young, the moment you truely stop looking you will find someone.
  • It is very important to be with the right person. God has a soulmate for you. But you have to ask. Repent of all your sins and ask god to send you a man. That will love, cherish, and respect you. ask him to mold you into the person he wants you to be. So you can be good wife! God Bless
  • you can be alone for the rest of your life and be successful is the most important things
  • you'll find the right one! dont worry(= If the next one isnt right theres a million left to find
  • dont worry i have 5 adult friends they are 24, 25,25, 23 and 20. you know i am 18. ill tell you none of my friends have a boyfriend. they never did. they were so busy with college so they didnt care. i am going to college right now. ill tell you i never have a real boyfriend either. only when i was 9 and then i never saw him again when i was 10. and the funny thing is that we never kissed. i want a boyfriend but i prefer my studies. i am not a nerd, believe i dont like studing. the guy that you want is going to appear soon. dont worry.
  • oh my gosh, me too and i'm 18! i know how hopeless and maybe even worthless it can make you feel, but our timing isn't God's timing. :)
  • Not having a man is not the be all and end all in this world to me. But of course thats easy for me to say because I have two divorces behind me. Me truthfully I take my hat of to you. You obviously do not trust the outside world, and those that live amongst us. And quite frankly who can blame you. I was 52 dec just gone 2007. The man I loved so much passed away a year ago. on november 22 2006. He told me those three little words often. And I can never hear them from him again. Love will come for you one day, just you wait you'll see. And when it does you'll feel just great the best things could ever be. But we all have to realise no matter who we love, we don't always get what we want. even when we found it. So make the most of it when it comes. It could be your first love and last one. God bless you jan
  • Ok, look you can't fish in the desert. Get involved! tutor, get involved with the USO....yes Virginia they are still around. If you want to met men? Join a historical reenactor group, not too many woman, a lot of men...most mature but if your interested in history you have a platform from which to stand and maybe find someone else who is alone in this world.
  • Just keep hope, your guy will turn up.
  • That sucks sweetie! Well, I have a cousin that kind of had boyfriends, but were never anything. She never got asked to prom or anything. She is 23 years and just met a man that now is serious. I have a sister who did not have a real boyfriend till she was 20, and she is one of my pretty sisters and popular! Why I'm issuing out my families' love life is that sometimes (even if it is frustrating) you don't meet anyone until later in life. One thing personally I've always noticed is when I am looking for one I never find anything good. I have to be content with myself before I do. Also, get involved with activities that you enjoy. It is a perfect way to meet someone wonderful. The other part is to take care of yourself and your appearance. When you do that you feel better about yourself and it makes people want to be with you. You are wonderful and always remember that! He's out there somewhere!
  • well my first assumption would be u are one of those shy people who does not have an idea on how to talk to the oposite sex without maybe a computer. This is the best advice you will get. Go start off small find a prostitute. then after you have some confidence at least talking with the oposite sex try to find someone at a bar, or coffee shop. sit by the bar and wait for people to buy u drinks. GOOD LUCK!
  • Your Prince will come... is just a matter of time =) just don't settle for anyone, all good things for those who wait.
  • Be yourself
  • Many people have already said to stop looking. Concentrate on making new friends, going out, doing new things. You'd be surprised at how many people you'll meet!
  • Love usually comes unexpectedly. Just when you say "It doesn't exist, the perfect one doesn't exist" it happens. Just don't think about it and learn to be happy and love life on your own, surround yourself with positive and good people then you won't feel so alone, "the one" will come when you least expect it.
  • Keep yourself busy and enjoy the single life. Join groups, sports teams a gym socialise with friends and make new friends. Helping people is the best way to feel good about your self so maybe do some volunteer work for a charity. Im a little older than you and I have many single friends some times I feel a little jealous that they always seem to be having so much carefree fun. You could get a dog they never let you feel lonely. And when you are really enjoying the single life your soul mate will come along and spoil it all :)
  • I don't know if you are spiritual or not but if you are, I say take time to make a list about your dream man. When you are finished you should pray for that man. If you don't believe that God will grant that to you than my advice is worthless. Don't feel alone either and don't stress too much about it.
  • Having a friend with that problem who was 31, the thing I told her was to stop being so closed all the time. She was so afraid of being hurt, so afraid of getting too attached, so afraid of being alone that every person she met was destined to fail. I dont know if thats the problem, I dont know you, but that was hers. She had to stop being so closed and open up. If you are too open and thinking of marriage, relax. Things happen, just let them happen. If you dont meet someone by the time you're 40, then you dont! Its not the end of the world. Be comfortable with yourself and enjoy the world around you.
  • Just listen to your heart and wait for the right onje to coem , i always thought that i would be aloen, but ive finally met that special one who wants to already marry me :) so just believe and soemday your knight in shinning armor will come and trust me you'll know when you fidnd him!!! So good luck !♥
  • Visit www.pulltheboy.co.uk and see if the advice there is relevant. Basically it is about changing who you appear to be. As a young man I never dated much, not having self confidence. Later I thought what the heck and discovered a new me, you can do it too.
  • You can search on match.com and browse for your man! You can try some salvia and see how you feel and how you think and you can change your perspective on the world.
  • Don't start asking youself "Where can I get a girlfriend?", ask yourself this question: Do I need one? If you feel lonely and sad, start to go out and make friends. Have partys and make the most friends possible. Sonn you will find that very special and lucky girl.
  • Relax, don't stress. Try taking the initiative, if you see a guy you like walk up to him and talk to him.
  • Everything in life is planned out. You just have to be patient. I know your 26 and you probably feel like its too late. But its not Believe me when i say that. Im alot older than you are. And dont take this as an insult, but your still a baby. Your time to shine will come. Dont stress about it.
  • Try too look for a boyfriend where you'd least expect it. Dog park, library, grocery store, andywhere you usually don't llok. I met many great women this way.
  • Wake up everyday beleaving that there is someone you love and he loves you in return, and everytime you hear the door bell imagine prince charming is on your door..... if you blv very strongly then that will be true
  • I never feel lonely to the point of talking to any prospective partner, I have a demeanor that I wish more people would take to mean that I love them, without actually muttering the words. I think it cheapens it. Just drop hints amongst all your friends that you don't mind spending time with any of them.
  • YIO SHOULD PUT YOURSELF OOT THEIR ALITTLE BIT MORE BUT ONLY TO ACERTAIN EXTENT DONT LET GUYS TREAT YOU WRONG CAUSE YOUR BETTER THAN THAT.
  • If you try to land a man it won't happen. Love will happen when you least expect it. The only thing you need to do is make sure you have a social life. Just don't force it to happen and it will eventually happen for you.
  • just live your life that special someone will come to you or you two will bump into eachother. i belaive in love at first site. so don't worry about it.
  • When you find the answer, let me know. I'll be 40 in November, and that feeling has been my constant companion for every one of those years. It's not just women who want to hear those three little words.
  • my husband hadn't found me til he was 34. he thought the exact same thing. don't give up so easily. it will happen. patience is a virture love. but also don't sit inside all day not doing anything just expecting someone to turn up at your door and go 'LOOK ITS ME THE ONE AND ONLY HERE I AM!' join dating sites or chat rooms or go out. just make sure you know what you want in a person first.
  • Lower your standards
  • There are more men in society seeking true love than woman and u just need to find such a person to answer your question. Sometime people get so much involved in themself that they hardly have space for new relation of new persons in their life.Try to be more frinedly with ppl in ur circle , let them know waht actually u r , try to trust someone and then u will surely fall in love with someone.Give it a try its not that bad.
  • don't be sad. Just keep on trying to find a boyfriend.
  • Work on strengthening your self-image. Understand that who you are does not directly relate to whether or not you are in a relationship. Love yourself first, and then you will attract someone who will love you. Being confident and happy with yourself is more important than any relationship that is based solely on the need for companionship. Also, taking up a hobby or engaging in an activity that you enjoy may help you to meet someone with similiar interests, thereby setting up a foundation for a friendship which may, at some point, turn into more.
  • I think this one is what you're looking for. http://www.iquestions.com/video/view/1023
  • Alas, the problem may well be that you are choosing the wrong kind of man, one with no emotional depth or capacity. Examine the sorts of men you have had relationships with and see if you see common threads amongst them. If so, try to avoid this type of man in the future. I doubt seriuosly if the problem lies with you or anything about you.
