I have never been in a relationship. Not even fooling around/sexual ones . I’m 24 now and all my friend are in relationships and most are them are not even in the country now ! Just met a friend for a few days and they asked me to date & explore . Now , that is quite difficult for me as I have been a part of abusive household since i can even remember and the fights and all have scarred me i guess. I find it very hard to trust people now and to even talk to men sometimes.

Now, I feel a bit lonely seeing all these couples around me and wanted to try out atleast some dating apps . I have been on one for a month or so but since I am generally introvert and talk less irl , I cannot get that courage/ interest from within me to talk much to a longer periods with anyone. Most of the time i get anxious and just shutdown for sometime .

Can anyone please advise me how to move forward as i feel like i’m wasting away my years atp!

PS : Not related but everyone around me (fam , relatives) have been asking me to marry/ settle down as it is now the “right age ” where I live ! This has added to my mental pressure honestly!

You need to decide yourself what is the right age to.marry. as far as dating is concerned, you can try. Abusive household definetly has an effect. Be strong, find a job to get a.hold of yourself and meet people.

See I am 19 and much younger than you, but I also feel the social pressure and fomo to be in a relationship, have a cool social life, I also am introverted and struggle to cope up with social situations, well I don’t think I am alone, and I also just wanted you to know that you are also not alone…

Hey !

Here’s my suggestion -
Trying on a dating app isn’t a bad idea, just try to hold on for some more time maybe u end up finding some positive connections ( u never know). Yes, after seeing all those couples, anyone (who’s single) would feel the way u do, don’t just let go your hope of finding someone real soon. Totally understand your point where u said that people are asking you to settle down, right age of marriage and bla bla because of the same age evn i get to hear such statements.

You deserve everything u wish to.
Wishing you luck and happiness, god bless.

I think relationship is quite slow process thing most people do hurry in this aspect but a long lasting relationship is slow burner and about being settle i think current time there is no idea time to settle because things are different and peoples r quite selfish these times and if you r introvert then its fine too but never hurry okay

People out there being happy couple … girl reality is ajkl sab casual casual khelre hai they stay with each other for months and break up jb it gets boring to you should be happy you are out of all that drama and toxicity and may be not feel fomo… atleast you have that peace of mind … and about feeling anxious because you don’t have experience you might be feeling anxious … there is no need to hurry … there’s nothing as such big about relationships nowadays… settle for a guy who is really good bu heart and understanding and mature … he will even help you make come of your state … please stay alert of red flags which are more on the dating apps nowadays… take care … I m introvert too but it’s okay we all learn to survive someway
