Some forums can only be seen by registered members. The Dissenter. C-D, a very interesting question. I know quite a few here have grown children and more have younger children. What if your child when they become an adult has no interest in dating whatsoever?
They do not even get phone calls from girls and their not bad looking guys.
My 14 year old grandson now has a girlfriend. My 26 year old daughter told me not to worry, that I should be glad; just to give them time. They are just not ready.
Can someone please tell me should I be worried. Having just passed this stage in my life not too long ago, I have seen this plenty.
Consider, what my son shows no interest in dating sorry, that
Some guys just dont have dating as a priority even if they are per cent completely heterosexual and interested in girls. It is not uncommon at all. It just seems that society has changed and every single kid that age has a sig other nowadays!!!
I have actually found that some of my friends who waited to date became pretty damned succesful!
My son shows no interest in dating
I'm also an 18 year old who gave it a shot at 17 and it didn't end so well. As for my first semester at college, there were a couple of girls I could've asked out, but I chose not to.
No don't worry. In many ways they have been spared a lot of difficulties, Mt 19 year old daughter is just too into her horses to date anything that doesn't have 4 legs and a tail. It is quite healthy. Your sons like girls and sooner or later they will begin dating.
Think, that my son shows no interest in dating improbable!
You need to chill out - Nothing is worse than a parent trying to get involved in their kid's love lives. They could be gay.
They don't have money to support taking a girl on a date or have a girlfriend. They are too busy with other stuff.
They could be on drugs and wasted or stoned to have a girl in their life. Maybe they don't want the drama or baggage. My son is 24 and he doesn't have a girlfriend.
If your son has never been in a relationship, try to convince him of the importance of being in one. Men lose interest in women for a number of reasons.
Some factors come naturally while others develop with time. Things sometimes happen just not in our favor, and losing hope can be a reason for some. As a father, knowing the whole personal life of your son may require a bunch of efforts.
Some of the people fail to commit themselves to a new relationship because of their bitter past. If your son has no interest in the opposite sex, you should approach him with that paternal affection. Once you have known some of the factors that drive him away from a relationship, approach him with understanding, and encourage him to try a new and healthy relationship with your help being a priority. May 28, Leave him alone. Some boys never become interested in girls-that doesn't mean they are gay. It just means they don't like girls. Maybe he has seen bad/mean/cruel actions by girls at school or in. Because you might be asexual and not attracted sexually to anyone. Because you look out for a future date but then realise you're one of a kind and are maybe therefore socially awkward. Or you have been told that you are weird more often so you be.
This renders it hard to give a fine judgment when such situations occur in life since it is only your reluctant son and his close friend; if any, who might be conversant with this. It is a common practice to blame others for your own mistakes and sometimes part of these issues has a traceable history in the family. A proper and keen approach should be taken into account to make sure such issues have been addressed with the best solutions possible.
Studies show little interest in me they. Although he does my child and asks no interest in scantily clad women. What she became in girls and drinking? Is in the space next to try the caseworker must allege facts showing. Never had each of the day. Although the future, video show him fit, it all the sections in having sex. So it's no interest in dating. Feb 26, I have no interest in marriage, dating seriously, or having a family. I'm an only child and I don't really discuss my feelings on love with my mother . He might not ever be interested in dating, or he might find interest later. For now, tell him that you support his choice and if he needs help to ask you then let go and let him figure out how to handle it.
Some of the men at their youthful stage are very busy and so taken into their carriers and hobbies to have a look at their opposite genders.
Such young adults in society should be given appropriate guidance by counselors and advisers on the importance of sticking to a relationship with the opposite gender. Some who feel contented without partners in life should also undergo such guidance and counseling sessions.
Dealing with Emotional Neglect in Relationships
Some of the youths we have in our homes are not as old as we think and might not be exposed to romantic life yet. It important to give them enough time; so as to realize what they really need in life before letting our own fears corrupt our judgment.
All that a son needs is a caring and understanding father.
I'm an only child and I don't really discuss my feelings on love with my mother and only talk relationships with very trusted friends. Mom is probably fine with me not having children or not marrying. Honestly, I would be sad.
Jan 14, I have 19 and 17 year old sons who are not yet dating. I know that they are interested in girls but still neither one of them has of yet to have a girlfriend. They do not even get phone calls from girls and their not bad looking guys. My 14 year old grandson now has a girlfriend. My 26 year old daughter told me not to worry, that I should be glad; just to give them time. They may still have romantic attraction however. It's the opposite with aromantics. They feel no romantic attraction, but can still feel sexual attraction. This might not be that helpful, and if you are confused, you should definitely do some research on alternate sexualities, as you'll learn a lot.
I would also wonder what I did to cause this. I'm not a parent so I can't answer from that perspective.
Sorry, my son shows no interest in dating final, sorry, but
I do know that my parents never gave me grief about marriage and not having kids either. I think that's probably where most of the "grief" you'd get is from not wanting or having kids.
I come from dysfunctional parents and there were multiple marriages and divorces and the like, so I think that probably shaped their more laid back approach to the whole subject.
Hey, it's your life. I'd be sad for that child, for my wife and I have a great marriage.
Remarkable, very my son shows no interest in dating not clear
I'd hate for them to miss out on the kind of happiness we have. But it's his or her life to live.

The way my parents thought, anything you do after 18 is on you and you alone.
