17 female and feel too old to date

Recommended Posts

*Sigh it's true I'm a seventeen year old girl and I'm about to go to college and feel like I'm too old to date because I've never been on one and wouldn't know what to do.

 

I'm quiet beautiful and several guys try to get close to me but I begin to be mean or avoid them when that happens. I'm scared to get into a relationship in my small town because I dont want to be locked in here. But if I don't I might look stupid trying when I go to college.

 

What I want is to be friends with the guys that want to date me but I don't know how not to seem vain turning them down then asking to be friends after I've avoided them or been rude for my own protection.

 

For the longest time I felt I was too good to do the high school 2-week thing but thats how most people find out what they like.

 

I sort of like my title as pretty black artist that no one can have in my senior class but I'de like a date to prom. Do I drop the title or go for it.

 

Should I wait for college or just give a date a go?

Stop being mean and rude to the guys who ask you out.

Why are you afraid to get close to someone?

 

when someone asks you out, let them know you would like to be friends first and see what happens from there. If a guy is interested in you, he might be willing to wait. Depends, some worry about being kept in the friends zone and never dating that person.

 

You're not too old to date. You haven't even gotten out of high school yet. You have a life ahead of you and if you quit being rude to guys...that might include dating someone.

17 is not too old to start dating. If you can converse with someone, then you can date. A date doesn't have to be a special, all out, evening; it can be as simple as just going out for an afternoon cup of coffee.

 

You're never going to know unless you try.

I'm 26 and never been out on a date, and there are people who don't start dating till they're 30. It's never too late, and you're still a teenager, too. Have fun and worry about dating later.

 

Show me a guy that chooses not to date until their thirty and I'll show you a guy that thinks being celibate for life is the funnest thing in the world.

you're young, so you're not too old to date. You should step back from yourself, though. you have a conceited air about you. no one can 'have' you? when folks get older, this doesn't work so well. you'd be viewed as an 'Ice Princess'. not a very attractive label. sounds like you do it to appear better than others, not out of self protection. IMO.

I met my first girlfriend in high school and we were together for the next 7 years. Not all teenage relationships last 2 weeks. Just focus on enjoying yourself and the people/person you are with...the rest will take care of itself.

I just turned 16 a few days ago, and I think that for myself, flirting around would be a huge waste of time. Girls have just never shown an interest in me, so I suppose I shouldn't show any interest in them either. I always try my hardest to keep my mouth shut around women, anyway, and if I really like someone, I'll ask them random questions pertaining to school. I know I'll get nowhere in life acting like this, but I'm too damn shy to change. Rejection would hurt my pride, and that I don't want.

Who doesn't start dating until they're 30? You know any one?

 

Hi there. It's not all too uncommon. I didn't really start dating dating dating until I was about to turn thirty. OP, you are never too young to date! You say your friends describe you as the pretty black artist that no one can have. They may be intimidated by you or just afraid that they are not cool enough for you. I don't think you are really as mean as you say. Its just a defense mechanism that a lot of shy people have. other people think you are mean because you are too scared to show any emotion. Make a new years resolution to smile more! You can always go to prom by yourself. you are artisitic too so it might give you an excuse to be on the committee to decorate or do entertainment so you can go no matter what. make it happen!!!
