(+26...5) asks I don't have a girlfriend and it kills me inside😭.
Ask many girls out on dates (ones that don't know each other). You will get rejected most of the time💔, but the rejections which will toughen you up, and you may quite possibly find a girlfriend💑 in the process. Focus on bettering yourself. Spend time on your studies/hobbies/strengths. Become a more confident person, and girls will like you more😍!
