But there's always a chance she'd just haphazardly plunge into a relationship to "prove them wrong." That would be more detrimental in the long run, for her self-esteem and for proving anything. If she's in the wrong relationship, it's worse than being alone. She should wait as long as it takes to find a great person, I wish more people were like OP.

These people are so right, don't jump into anything until you're ready. After my first true relationship bombed after 2 years of being together, I went 3 years single. I thought there would never be someone for me after I lost my first true love. You need to know yourself before you get to know anyone else. There's a lot of people that can't stand to be alone and always need a boyfriend/girlfriend. Those people think they need someone else because they don't truly love themselves. They're always

Haha it does tug on thee ol' heart strings. I'm just speaking from personal experience. If you don't know or love yourself, you'll never be in a working relationship. You'll be searching for something you'd never come to realize you already have. There's nothing wrong with being in a relationship, nor is there anything wrong with being by yourself. Both are learning experiences. And I know because of my lost love that you'll actually become not necessarily a better person, but more of a complete

Another life-changing speech from the master of life-changing speeches that belong only in the comments section of an FML post. Amazing. Truly amazing.

McFeeli, I really relate to your story here. At seventeen (what a dummy) I thought I had met my soul mate. He, as far as I went, was perfection. Turned out after a few arguments he got fed up and cheated on me with my best friend and got her pregnant. I learned a valuable lesson, I trusted too easily and that was a trait I had needed to work on in myself. Six years later, I am happy, married to my true soul mate (for three years!!), and most of all, I know who I am. To this day the betrayal stil

You're just waiting for your special someone. Tell then you're too good for the guys around you!

This is that awkward case where you go to do the trade in and the guy is like, "Sorry, I just can't take those..."

Now that's just hurtful. :( As hard as it is, coming from your parents, just ignore them, Op. It's not a competition to stack up a list of ex's a mile long, you'll eventually find your match, if you want to. Chin up, Op!

I understand how that would be painful to overhear. If they were saying it in front of you, I'm sure you'd be able to just brush it off as lighthearted teasing, but if you are already self-conscious about the fact that you haven't been in a relationship, hearing people gossip about it behind your back must be pretty brutal. I'd just say take your time, and when the time comes, make sure you're dating someone kind-hearted who likes you and respects you. Then you won't have to worry about those

You're too good :) So you're waiting for someone as great as you, Sad that your parents are so insensitive. But you'll prove them wrong one day.

They sound like fantastic parents, OP. Go out there and prove that you can get a relationship going, then we'll see who's laughing.
