Guys Q & A: Should I Be Alarmed That I'm NBSB?

Alarmed because you're NBSB? Hear us out, this might help.

Got boy problems? One reader sent us a message asking us if she should be alarmed because she's NBSB (read: no boyfriend since birth). And because we love you so much, dear Candy Girls, here's what we have to say about it.

Being NBSB is not something you should be ashamed of, regardless of how old you are. There's actually something good in the whole scenario: You don't have to go through a messy breakup and experience a pain that can cripple you for years, and even a lifetime. 

And for those who tell you that the entire experience is different? Well, we quite disagree. It depends on your perspective about the situation. You can also learn those life and love lessons without getting in a relationship. All of us live. All of us love. All of us lost someone who's become a vital part of our lives. All of us have our hearts broken, and have feared falling in love with the wrong person again at one point in time.

So, don't worry too much about it, Candy Girls. Being NBSB isn't really that big of a deal. Who knows? Life may just be preparing you for the best guy yet—so that when he comes, you're your best self, and things will work out just fine.
