I got to 32 without ever being kissed or going on a date – I always assumed men would chase me but it never happened | The Sun
GROWING up Allora Campbell always imagined her 'Mr Right' would one day sweep her off her feet, just like they do in the movies.
But having got to the age of 32 without ever being kissed or taken on a date, she's realised her approach to romance clearly isn't working.
She'd always expected she would get her "meet cute" or be pursued by men – but it never happened.
But Allora insists she's not embarrassed to be a "late bloomer", and is now taking matters into her own hands.
She set herself a goal of going on dates for a month in January this year.
Having felt she was “falling behind the expectations of dating in society”, she's now been on four dates and has finally been kissed – describing the moment as “sweet”.

Allora, a marketer from Rochester, New York, says: “I’m 32 and I had never been kissed or been on a date until last month.
“I presumed that women were meant to be pursued or some sort of meet cute would happen. But that never happened to me.
“I thought there must be something wrong with me."
She admits she went nearly two decades without going on a single date after she "lost trust in love" when it was unrequited in her early 20s.
