There is nothing wrong with you. Would you rather have your first kiss be from some random guy you don't really care about, and look back on it all your life as a yawn, and just something you did to do it so you fit in with your friends. OR would you rather wait until the right guy comes along, someone you can care about, possibly grow to love. So your memory of that first kiss is a positive one. Don't give in to peer pressure. Live for yourself, not a bunch of people you probably will lose touch with once you start college anyway. When they try to find out just smile mysteriously, and say "I like to keep my private life, private." and leave it at that.Good luck!
I know 20 year olds who haven't had first kisses. It means you're not a slut and I am the same :) so, yeah. I'm the SAME way and I haven't even gtot a boyfriend and not a first kiss. So its alright. wait, it'll happen sooN! :)
First off, in response to Music Gypsy, just because you've had a kiss at a younger age, it doesn't mean you're a slut. Please no slut shaming.I did not have my first kiss at 17, you're fine. It just means you haven't found the right person. Don't worry about it, take your time.
Nothing makes you a slut, Music Gypsy. Nothing. I don't care if you don't mean it 'that way'. You said it. No slut-shaming. K. Love, I know it's hard to focus on love and relationships and sexual activity because you're surrounded by it every day. But remember that this is not the most important thing about life. It doesn't matter if you're 'in the norm' or not. You haven't had your first kiss yet, that is 100% okay. There's nothing wrong or abnormal about you. Everyone has their first kiss at different points in their lives. You're fine, I promise.
I waited to have my first proper kiss and I'm so glad I did, I wanted it with someone special and I knew not to worry about what others thought! You're still so young and have loads of time to kiss boys throughout your life! Why rush it? Just enjoy being young! it will happen eventually :)
mine was when i was 18 as well. i was just so nervous and anxious about it i tended to avoid it. but if someone comes along and it happens it will be very special trust me. it's not weird and it might be better the longer you have to wait
I'm 18 and I haven't had my first kiss yet, or even a girlfriend. Although almost everyone has by the time they're 18, it's not that big of a deal to me. It will happen eventually. Hopefully. Maybe not...
It's not weird at all. People are naturally different at relationships depending on how they view relationships in general & on the people they meet. Some meet someone they would consider "date-able" very early & are okay with dating from an early age. Others just haven't met the right person to spark their interest yet. Speaking from experience, I'm 18 turning 19, & I still haven't met someone I would love to date.
(wow this has a lot of answers)
Anyway, I didn't get my first kiss until my sophomore year, and I was pressured into that. Sometimes it's best to just wait until you're with a person you admire and you're aware that you're ready to kiss with said person. If I hadn't been pressured into things than the outcome would have been a lot different, but I would probably be a bit happier.
I was 17 and a half when I had my first kiss, until then I'd only ever been on one date. 2 years later I'm still with the guy I had my first kiss with and I'm living with him.
Honestly, I used to worry about it to, but actually its completely fine, and its nice to have had my firsts with an important guy as opposed to a random guy like a lot of my friends.
I know its difficult not to bother but really try not to, you'll see how worth it it is when you meet somebody important and have your first kiss with them :)
