Is this a normal feeling?/Relationship Advice

So uh, I feel kinda down. I'm going into high school this year, and I guess I feel kinda lonely. I see all these other girls and guys in relationships and I've never had a boyfriend or girlfriend in my life! I had one crush irl (got rejected and she has a boyfriend now). I've been feeling this way for around two years. It's an odd feeling, like, kind of loneliness. I want to be in a relationship, I feel desperate. Like, I don't think it's peer pressure. I think it's more of I want to experience a relationship and be in one and have someone who loves me more than anything. I feel empty. School's (luckily) starting up soon and maybe there's a chance? But I don't know anything about relationships, and I don't want to seem desperate (or a sl-t), but I just feel empty. Any advice?

Yo, I'm going to be a junior in high school this year. I entered high school similarly to you, having no relationship experience. I was in a relationship halfway through that year, and they seemed quite understanding in my lack of experience of being in one. Like what the others below have said, it's not the best to rush into a relationship; the most genuine love forms naturally. I haven't been in a relationship since the one I mentioned, but because I personally focus more on See More▼

get to know somebody and if you start developing feelings, go for it! nobody will think you're a slut unless you're hoping from person to person

Maybe I shouldn't be the person to give advice for something like relationships, but here goes. I think that you should get to know someone. Make sure that they're not a jerk, and that you enjoy being around them. Most likely, they will enjoy your company, too. Then, when you're ready, ask them out on a date or something. If it goes well, then continue doing this until you're in a relationship. If it doesn't go well, then hope you can still be friends, and try someone else. So...just See More▼

I know how you're feeling, and I've never experienced a true in person relationship. I can tell you the relationships I've experienced are hard to handle. You don't need to rush into a relationship starting highschool year it's best to focus on school. I'm not telling you not to get into a relationship, just don't rush it, if you rush it and you're not ready things will happen. Get through freshman year, if you end up in a relationship congrats, but focus on life and wait until See More▼

Wait for the right person. Rushing into a relationship isn't a good idea. I know you want a relationship, but would you rather wait a little longer, or have your heart broken?
