Your Question

How do i get a boyfriend?


Hey there!
Well done for reaching out—it takes courage to ask about relationships. It’s totally normal to want a boyfriend, but remember, there’s no rush. Relationships happen when the time is right, and everyone’s journey is different. It’s like finding the perfect pair of runners; you want the right fit for you.
Feeling lonely or wanting a connection is absolutely okay. You’re never alone in this. Friends, family, or even school counsellors can be great sounding boards. Open up to them about your feelings, and you might be surprised at the support and advice they can offer. They might even share their own experiences, making you feel less alone.
Now, let’s look at some options. Join clubs or activities you’re passionate about. Whether it’s sports, arts, or a book club, it’s a great way to meet like-minded people. Plus, it’s an opportunity to shine doing what you love. Confidence is attractive, and doing something you like or love is a confidence booster. 
Most importantly, be yourself. Authenticity is magnetic. Don’t change who you are to fit someone else’s expectations. Your uniqueness is your superpower.  You may find this website useful; it covers all the facts on relationships are also some articles on the Childline website you may find interesting, one being
