DEAR DEIDRE: I FEEL embarrassed I am still a virgin at 24 and worry no one will ever want me.
I never had a girlfriend. My mates have had loads and don’t go short of sex either. I work for a fast-food chain and finish at midnight on weekdays.
I go out alone at weekends as my mates see their girlfriends then.
If I do meet girls, they are not interested in me and only chat while they wait for someone else to turn up.
I ran into a group of girls I know last weekend but I avoided them and sat on my own rather than wait for the usual rejection.
My situation is really beginning to get me down. Am I being paranoid?

DEIDRE SAYS: It’s time to stop putting yourself down as others pick up on those negative feelings.
It is perfectly possible to be happy and single.
When you meet the right girl she will not judge you for being a virgin – in fact she may be positively happy about it. Change the way you spend your spare time, so it’s not all about bars and clubbing.
You can find lots of ideas in my e-leaflet on Widening Your Social Life.
