Am I doing the wrong thing? I am 23 years old and have never been in a relationship. But I have had an opportunity to have something stable with a person, but I do not know if it is because of fear, anxiety, low self-esteem, or because I did not “feel butterflies with that person” I let the opportunity slip away. Sometimes in moments of loneliness or wanting romantic support if I regret my past actions, but then that feeling passes. Now, the same opportunity presents itself to me and the truth is I have the same feelings: I am not attracted to that person, the person is respectful to me but I feel uncomfortable.
People close to me say that it is out of fear, that I should get over it and open up to know this person. But the truth is I do not visualize myself with that person romantically. For once in my life I want the person for whom I feel something to reciprocate me and that is where our relationship is based. Or meet a person who catches my attention and eventually reach something romantically. I sincerely feel that I will never find anyone, that my life will be alone and that these years of life have been a waste.
I don’t know what to do, I honestly don’t want to keep getting to know the person and give them false hope, it hurts to have a broken heart.

No sé qué hacer, honestamente no quiero seguir conociendo a la persona y darle falsas esperanzas, duele tener el corazón roto.

I found this site where I can write anonymously and the truth has taken some of my stress off sharing this. To those of you who take the time to read this, thank you.

Hey!
It’s okay to feel this way! I’m 21 and I completely understand what you said. I feel exactly the same but the truth is you’re still young. You’ll never be too old to follow through according to how you feel about someone. It’s nice to be respected, in fact very important but not enough that even if you don’t feel an emotional attachment or any romantic connection, that you should force yourself into the relationship for just being respected. You’re a great person I’m sure and you shouldn’t give it all up!! You’ll find someone who is worth this time and effort and who you will feel comfortable and safe around. Then you won’t need to ask anyone if you should give it a go! You’ll know! X

Its okay to feel that way. Dont try to force yourself into a relationship if you dont feel that way. Take your time with the person.
