I'M 17 BUT I'VE NEVER EVEN KISSED A GIRL; TEEN ANGST; DEAR COLEEN; Ireland's most straight-talking problem.

Byline: Coleen Nolan

Dear Coleen

I'm a 17-year-old man and have never had any success with women - in fact, I've never even kissed a girl.

I wouldn't say I'm an unattractive person and I've never had trouble making friends, but every girl that I've asked out seems to be completely uninterested - despite the fact that I'm a nice person!

While everyone else is enjoying being in relationships, I'm on my own and feel so alone.

Even my 13-year old brother has been with more girls than me and he always brags about how he's done this and that!

Sometimes I think I'll be on my own for ever. What should I do?

Coleen says

You have to stop worrying about it because it will show as desperation to every girl you meet. And you're only 17 - you're a boy, not a man, and you have plenty of time to get into a relationship. There is no right or wrong time.

As for your little brother, a lot of very young people tend to brag about this kind of thing to make themselves seem older and most of the time it's just a pack of lies! Let's face it, how many girls can he have dated at 13?

What's great is that you haven't kissed or slept with a girl just so you can brag about it. It's good that you're waiting for the right girl to come along. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
