Dating : Am I [18F] too young/inexperienced to try online dating ?
I’ve been thinking about trying online dating for a few months now but I’m kinda scared because I’m not very experienced. I’ve never had a boyfriend (I’ve been asked out once but I was not interested), never had sex, and I’ve only kissed a guy once 2 years ago.
I have social anxiety so dating apps seem like a good option for me as it’s literally impossible for me to randomly go talk to people I’m intersted in and because I never get approached by strangers bc I’m very awkward and silent in social situations.
I feel that at my age people one dating apps are more interested in hookups and stuff like that (I have nothing against that but it’s not for me, at least currently) but I’m looking for something more stable so I don’t know if it’s even worth it to try.
ngl I’m kinda scared to be taken advantage of, especially if people there are way more experienced than I am, but at the same time I feel like there aren’t really any other ways to meet new people (all of my friends are girls and most of their friends are also girls, we mostly hang out at one of my friend’s house and when we go out we don’t really engage with other people, my hobbies are only solo things, it’s covid, I’m very shy,…..)
So yeah if you guys have any advice/opinion for me I’ll gladly take it ! (Thanks for reading and sorry for my english 🙂
