I am 18 years old going on 19 and I have never had a boyfriend, not even close really. I have never really had very many guy friends either. Therefore, I have never really gotten that close with a guy, even to just have a meaningful conversation. Guys have been interested in me before but they are guys who I have barely spent any time with and know barely anything about me. I just wish that it were easier to just get to know guys first and THEN even begin to think about dating them. Is it normal to be totally confused about how to get to know guys without always having the pressure of it being something more than friendship?
