  • i wouldnt say its something to worry about, maybe there is no girl out there that is interesting just yet. maybe he is a late bloomer?? it could be a lot of things but i really would not worry.

  • I would not worry about it..just because he hasn't had a girl friend yet doesn't mean he isn't interested in girls. Have you tried talking to him about this. I know my 14 year old never wants to talk about girls, he gets embarrassed, which is normal at this age. I think the best thing to do is try to talk with him and don't push, I am sure he will come to it in his own time.

    Good Luck!

  • Normal is relative. It may be normal for him. There are many reasons he might not be interested. Talk to him and find out.

  • Why is this an issue?? Are you scared he doesn't like girls at all??? Have you thought about sitting down and asking HIM??

    He could have not found the right girl, he could not be interested in girls at all.

  • Why is it a priority? There's no need to rush. Maybe there's no one at school who interests him, don't panic. Once he heads off to college he'll meet someone, the ocean will be bigger and there will be more fish to choose from.
