I'm 24 years old and YET

I've never had a paid job
AND
I've never had a girl friend.

Why I'm such a NEET?

You can always change that, but nothing happens until you start looking for them.

The fact that you're looking for an answer in an Internet forum says everything...

Don't be discouraged because things aren't going your way currently, jobs can be difficult to find and as for the girlfriend thing, girls are scary find one that isn't as scary as the rest and see if you can get to know her then if you feel emotions towards her ask her out, I know, a lot easier said than done. Phogan is right though, you can't really change anything until you take that first step. Putting yourself down is something else you'll kind of need to stop doing too, that's never a good thing to do.

In short.
DO:
Apply for work anywhere and everywhere
Try to find girl that don't scare you (although if she does scare you that might be emotions so this one is kinda play be feel)

DON'T
Put yourself down
Change your core personality just because people think you're weird, everyone's weird love your weirdness it makes you who you are
Try not to take everything so serious, learn to relax and take things as they come

^This.

Like Nomad said don't get discouraged. You're only 24 years old which is still young. You can change your life around but in order to do that you to have confidence. First get a job, afterwards start befriending people (from your job or the customers) and then you can find a girlfriend. Do things in small steps and don't beat yourself up.

You're not a failure (there are some individuals who are in a far more pitiable state due to some rather poor choices). Nevertheless, I'll say the following.

I know many individuals around your age in college who have never had a job either. It's not that uncommon. I myself have never had a job that wasn't somehow connected to my university. I would just give it time and that'll probably sort itself out.

Regarding the girlfriend thing, I constantly say this, but l'll say it once again romantic love is not related to the quality of one's life. Despite what society says, there is no pyramid where married people are at the top, dating in the middle, and single at the bottom. Considering the divorce rate and how shallow many romantic interactions tend to be, i'd say that if there were a pyramid, it would probably be upside down.

Love is like taking a crap, sometimes it works itself out, but sometimes you need to give it a nice hard slimy push.

- Eric Cartman


What I'm saying is that you need to make the move on your own, nobody's going to come to your house and bring you a girlfriend or a job.

I'm going to be honest, I'm kind of impressed that you made it to 24 without a paid job. I don't have a clue how one does that. I'm only 21, and the only reason I get to be a NEET right now is because I saved a bit of money and then quit my job (this is something I've done twice now).

The girlfriend thing...meh.

As for why you are the way you are, I don't know you and therefor cannot comment. All I can say is, I wish you the best!

^^ Yup, pretty much all that. You still have a lot of time ahead of you since you're only 24. But of course, you need to take the initiative to first find a job. While at your job, I'm sure you'll meet more people (and more girls to befriend too!). And also, job hunting can be hard, but don't be discouraged if you don't get calls back from the employers. Even "successful" people have tons of trouble finding jobs. Just apply to as many as you can, there will never be too many applications

Again, don't stress yourself out. The initial step is always the hardest, but once it goes right, everything else will be a breeze. So yea, you're not a failure at all (so stop saying that); you just need to get the engine started

Not having a paying job and girlfriend doesn't make you a failure at life. The only sure-fire way to "lose at life" is to die. Made-up, human concepts are actually quite irrelevant. You don't see Influenza strains walking around with well-paying careers and spouses, after all.

Nonetheless, if your that bothered about a lack of romance and a job, then get off of your bum and take care of it. Acquiring a paying job is as easy as mowing someone's lawn for some cash. If you want to set the bar higher, start applying for jobs like a madman. As for getting a girlfriend... Hell, you can meet someone while on the job and through coworkers.
