I happen to come across this site and thought maybe you guys can hopefully help and give me some advice.
I have a problem. I am 36 years old and never had a boyfriend. I know it's weird but it's true. Nothing wrong with my appearance. I would say I'm average looking. I'm Asian but just recently migrated to Australia. I didn't really worry too much about being single before as I never really felt alone because I always had friends and family with me. And I have friends near my age who also have never been in a relationship. I was too focused on my studies and my career so I kept thinking my love life can wait. I have a bachelor and masters degree. I'm quite an achiever. Always the honor student and felt like I needed to be successful because my family is expecting a lot from me. I came from a Catholic family who are conservative. My parents didn't want me to have a boyfriend until I finish my studies and I have always been the good daughter. I could think of a lot more possible reasons why I didn't have a relationship. But when I migrated here in Australia, suddenly I don't have my family and friends. And one day it just hit me. I'm 36 years old and still single! I'm feeling scared now and it's stressing me whenever I think about it. I don't want to grow old alone. I want to have a family and have kids.
I'm having regrets now of how I lived my life before and not entertaining guys but past is past and I have to face the present. What should I do? Some friends told me to try online dating but I'm too scared that if I tell a guy that I've never had a boyfriend at my age he will think I'm a freak, considering the culture here in Australia. I'm too scared to even go on dates because of fear when the guy ask me about past relationship. It always gets asked. Hope someone here can give me some advice. Thank you.
