As someone who never dated all throughout college, and met her first boyfriend at 25, I can safely say that the pressure is real. From friends offering to set you up, to those mocking your lack of ‘experience’, life in singleville can feel like purgatory. This is distressing because no one should feel pressured into dating or having their first kiss.
It appears many others feel the same. Recently, a 27-year-old shared a video admitting that she’s never been on a date, kissed, or been physical with anyone in her life, reports Mirror UK. Emily Rose got vocal about her experiences to normalize them and let others in a similar situation know that they aren’t alone.
“I’m 27 years old and I’ve never dated anybody, I’ve never kissed anybody. I’ve never been physical in any way shape or form with the opposite sex and I am attracted to men. Not even come close. Not once,” she said in the viral video.
Take a look:
Speaking of what prompted her to make the video, Emily explains, “I just wanted to say it because I thought honestly, there’s not many of us that I know of.”
She adds, “And I’d love to know more. So if there any more men or women out there who are near this age and it’s just bizarre to the world, I’d love to know if you exist,” she added. “And I want to let you know that I exist and that we’re not alone!”
Clearly, there is no predetermined age to fall in love, have a relationship, or even have your first kiss. So, you do you, boo!
