    I haven't had a bf yet. I'm only 18 and I think that's still pretty young but I would like to have one sometime in the near future. If you did (or do) have a bf, who initiated the relationship? Gracias!

    I haven't ever gotten serious with a guy yet.

    Maybe 2011 will bring some change icon_smile.gif

    When I was 18. I don't regret it at all but in hindsight I was too young for a relationship, I needed to experience a bit more life first. The relationship was about 2.5 years, with a much older man. He wanted to settle down, I didn't know what I wanted, so we split.

    Don't be in any hurry to get in a relationship, it's amazing when you find the one you do want to settle down with but you can only know that once you've lived a bit, in my view.

    Yes, 18 may be a bit young for some guys. Not because they aren't necessarily old enough to handle it, but many guys will enjoy their greater personal freedom while still a young man rather than in settling down with just 1 guy. (The same holds true for straight guys and women) By waiting until a little older you also gain more social experience & maturity to help you eventually pick the right guy for an LTR, less likely to make mistakes and get hurt.

    Dating at 18 and hanging with your friends, having a BF later in your 20s, and a partner by your 30s is a pattern that works well for a lot of guys. Not a standard rule, of course, with many successful exceptions, and I personally have some as friends, still couples after decades together. But I wouldn't deliberately set out at 18 to find a BF, nor did my friends from what they've told me.

    In my case I initiated each relationship myself, except for my late partner, who pursued me instead. But then I was considerably older than you when I came out, a very late bloomer, a former Army Officer accustomed to taking charge of things.

    Haven't had a serious boyfriend yet and I'm 21... I was in denial about myself for a while, now I'm getting to that stage where I'm just sick of the denial.. I'm at the point where I want someone to care for and to have that be reciprocated.

    Boyfriend??? Boyfriend.... what's that????
    I'll be 49 on Friday, and I've never had a boyfriend... not for lack of trying. You're young, don't worry about it. If he comes, he comes. It's not written in stone that everyone will have a mate, straight or gay....

    Gosh, never had a 'jack-off buddy'. Or I don't remember if I did. Sounds intriguing...

    First boyfriend was age 17/18 - way, way, way too young...

    Not till I was 23. It was the first relationship I ventured into. It took me a while to accept myself. I wish I hadn't stayed w/ the first bf...but I've learned a lot about what I don't ever want in a future bf

    I never really had a true boyfriend up until recently =P

    The guys that I have been with were mostly closeted and was hard for them to commit, then again I was closeted myself... So the intimacy, if you can even call it that was always on the DL.

    So my first unofficial boyfriend was at 15

    After a string of guys, I guess I've found one at 35 =P

    18 for me. I was in it for about a year, and it was too early for me. I feel like I should have been single so I could really learn who I was and who I wanted to be after being so confused in high school. I'm 22 almost 23 now and I'm just starting to feel ready to hit the dating scene again. icon_twisted.gif

    Edit: Although it was a shitty, closeted relationship, so my first real boyfriend would be at 21 - and still going strong icon_smile.gif
