im a mom who wants her 19 yr old son to get his life going and that includes getting a girlfriend!!! i guess part selfishness ( i want grand babiesssss) and my daughters prob not gonna be having any so it looks like it is up to him lol. also he needs someone (not just any ole girl) someone who will love him and help keep him on the straight and narrow rather than in places like "the dope hole" partying etc. his type of girlfriend would be a laid back chic who will work and is clean and a good person. she might smoke a joint with him and they go fishing alllllll the time etc. she aint afraid to get dirty with him etc. but still look and act like a woman. and he tends to like older women. ughh whats wrong with me?????? lol

The age of consent should be set at 81 years old instead of 18.
Drugs, guns, alcohol, tobacco usage, car driving, sex, i.e. all that is "evil" and "dirty" should be allowed only at 81 years old. That should do the trick and insure we live in a pure civilization.

Don't worry that he doesn't want a girlfriend at 18, he stills has 63 years left, LOL !

Seriously, why do you want grand babies ? What's in it for you ?

Look at this world, we live in tyranny all over the place. I would certainly not want to raise kids only to see them become tax payers and getting beaten up by our police state, welfare-warfare state. The best defense against tyranny is to stop breeding.

My son just turned 20 and has dated many girls but only had one serious gf when he was 16-17 that ended in an absolute disaster. I think he is really gun shy about things now even though he would like to have a gf. He has lots of friends, including TONS of just-a-friend girl friends, but suffers from "nice guy" syndrome which keeps him in the friend-zone. He's also old fashioned thinking about relationships (paying for dinner dates, opening doors, get to know someone before getting physical, etc) which some girls laugh at. A few of his buddies have gf's, but many others don't so he is in good company. One of these days some girl who was burned by a bad-boy will realize what a catch he is

My brother didn't date either. He was far from gay, but he had his standards. Being a fireman, he had no shortage of girls all over him, but he wanted a connection with them, not some ditz. He wanted a girl with a brain and values. He finally got a girlfriend at the age of 27, and it lasted for 3 years, but they broke up cause she wants kids and he does not. A good reason, I think. They are still very close, and hang out a lot. I think that it is ok not to date if you know exactly what you want, and can't find it, otherwise it is a waste of time. A lot of people date just to date.

He swears that isnt the case and he knows we wouldnt care. My dad says he is just a late bloomer ( he does tend to act immature sometimes. Any guys out there late bloomers as well, or know of them.
He's still young. Many boys that age haven't had a girlfriend yet. Your mom needs to stop what she's doing. It's not helpful.

I find that statement a little sad. What is the rush? Let nature take it's course. I really wouldn't worry. My oldest son was 18 before he had his first girlfriend. Three years later and they are still together. And I just read that this thread is three years old. Why do people bump ancient threads?

just leave the kid alone. ugh, he will come around. nothing is worse than adults pressuring a teenager into doing something they may not want to do or be ready to do....
