I feel like the first one sounds better but I can't explain why

Best Answer

I haven't had a girlfriend yet.

I've never had a girlfriend.

I don't have a girlfriend yet.

I don't currently have a girlfriend, and have not since some understood point in time (since your last girlfriend, or since school started, or whatever implied timeline the conversation may entail).

Both are correct in given circumstances.
