Jude following Dil and Fergus. Three met together and talk about love which is between Dil and Fergus:

Jude: Young love, as they say.
Dil: Absolutely. The younger the better. Doesn't come much your way, I suppose.
Jude: Don't go lookin' for it, Dil.

What is the meaning of "Doesn't come much your way"? Does it means young love won't happen to Jude?

I understand it to mean that Jude has not been lucky in love.

Though Jude does say he isn't looking for love, so maybe he isn't that interested.
