Anneliese said that despite feeling abandoned, she refuses to kiss someone to end this.

Anneliese, 23, from the US, has never kissed anyone or had a boyfriend, and she’s not one to propose to strangers in a bar.
She first revealed her panic about the state of her love life and lamented how “ashamed” she feels.
“I’m actually starting to freak out,” he said. It’s not even funny anymore. I’m 23 years old and I haven’t had my first kiss yet, it’s so horrible.”
Anneliese said that when she was 21 and 22, she could interpret her inexperience as “cute” and “quirky,” but it was too late for that.
‘It’s getting scary. I don’t see it changing anytime soon and I keep getting older.
‘It’s weird because I’m going to be very old and I’m going to have to tell someone that I’ve never kissed anyone before. I am so humiliated.
The young woman explained that she didn’t even have an ‘awkward high school boyfriend’ that she ‘dated’ with for a day and kissed on the lips.
‘I’m really starting to feel that something is wrong with me. I don’t know why I am the way I am. Not good.’
Thousands offered her advice on how to rectify her situation, but Anneliese revealed why it’s been difficult to change her relationship status.
“Everyone’s first piece of advice is to go to a bar, get drunk and make out with someone, or go on a dating app and find someone and kiss them.
But my first problem is that I don’t drink, and I don’t think I can approach a sober stranger. I would be so anxious all the time!’
The second problem was the lack of privacy that these options offered.
‘I don’t think I can make out with a random stranger, it has to be someone I know and care about. So, I would have to get a boyfriend before I have my first kiss, and that’s another set of problems because I don’t know how to do it.
Anneliese revealed that the thought of kissing a stranger made her want to ‘throw up’.
‘What if it’s horrible? What if he tells his friends that he kissed me and that it was a bad kiss? she asked.
“I also think about the things that have happened in my past in the next few years, so if I have a bad first kiss, I can never forget it,” he finally said.
Despite feeling abandoned, Anneliese said she refuses to kiss someone to get it over with.
Many others shared similar stories about their love lives.
“Honestly, I’m relieved to see that others haven’t had their first kiss yet either,” said one woman. ‘I’m halfway through college and still nothing.’
“I’m 27 years old and no one has held my hand,” revealed another.
“I’ll be 30 in six months and I’ve never had a boyfriend, I feel the same,” wrote a third.
