Hi,
There is nothing wrong w/ not wanting a boyfriend. The fear response you feel about the idea of being asked/asking out is also normal. It's a very nerve racking experience for almost everybody. Only date when you feel ready. Always here to talk/listen :)

Your more than welcome!
Im sorry today has not been good. I think it's important to remember fears are seldom rational nor logical. If you take that into account it helps put these fears into a healthier perspective. I think not wanting a boyfriend is partly your not ready yet and/or hocd. I say that cause anytime we have that fear response our focus turns onto that- the fear response. It dosen't mean your not attracted, but the fear response replaces it. It's not repulsive in sexual thought, but invokes that anxiety your talking about. Hope that makes sense. Always here to talk/listen :)
