By uh, ask your dad... - 31/08/2018 12:30 - Australia

Today, it's now a week since my mum and aunt shunned me for refusing to play the big brother and give my 17-year-old cousin some dating advice. I'm 31 and have never dated, been in a relationship, or been sexually active. I wouldn't know where to begin with advice. FML

What exactly is wrong with being promiscuous? Not that there's anything wrong with not being sexually active either. OP, do you not date because you don't want to or because you don't know where to start? If you don't want to, great! You do you, ace's are sweet. If you don't know where to start (and you want to), ask some friends or try online dating.

Has any of these other comments considered whether the OP has interest in a relationship or not? Perhaps they simply have no interest in sex or relationships in the first place. More info needed, rather than the judgemental drivel.

Show it anyway

With people being more and more promiscuous, it's not sad at all.

I'd suggest you become more outgoing, it's never too late. Hang in there op.

Maybe you ought to go find your biological mom and learn about the birds and the bees.

Here's some free advice. Insert rod 'A' into slot 'B'.

My family is still completely baffled by the fact that I have zero interest in sex or romantic relationships. But they're smart enough to stop hinting about "one day...." Nope, not happening. If the OP doesn't want to date, that's their decision. If they haven't had the opportunity, hopefully someone wonderful comes into their life soon.

You could’ve told him what doesn’t work...

So give him advice. At least if he follows your method they won't have to worry about him getting anyone pregnant. Heck, maybe that's what they were aiming for.

According to you: OP felt uncomfortable and unqualified in giving advice in a certain subject. OP should still have a responsibility to give advice in that subject. Okay
