Are these correct? If not, why? What do they mean?

1. Don't worry about me, I have never chosed a wrong person before and I still haven't. (Is 'I still haven't' necessary here? I have 'have never chosed' here. )

2. Don't worry about me, I never chosed a wrong person before and I still haven't. (Is this okay? What does this mean? Does this have the same meaning as #3?)

3. Don't worry about me, I had never chosed a wrong person before and I still haven't. (What does this mean with past perfect compared to #2?)

Thanks.

Hello, Jack!
Maybe you should first re-phrase your sentences with: choose, chose, chosen !

I have never chosed a wrong person before

The above sounds odd to me. Because I have never chosen is present perfcet tense. Before means some past aspect.

I wonder a past action could be combine with the words ' I have never chosen' in this context.

Problem 1.

"I have never chosen"
"I never chose"

Problem 2.

"and I still haven't" must be removed. "never" already means the same thing.
"and I never will" can substitute, if you wish.

Problem 3.

The imperative sets up present point-of-view.
Past perfect is incompatible with present point-of-view.
Therefore, sentence 3 is incorrect.

3. Don't worry about me, I had never chosen a wrong person before and I
still haven't. (I don't get why this is wrong? Doesn't this mean "I never chose a wrong person before and I still haven't ?" Could you tell me the meaning of this? How does it compared to #2? Maybe I can see the error better like that. Thanks.)

What do these mean?
4. I have been very busy lately and I still am.
5. I had been very busy lately and I still am.
The imperative sets up present point-of-view.
Past perfect is incompatible with present point-of-view.
Therefore, sentence [1] is incorrect.
1. Don't worry about me, I had never chosen a wrong person before and I still haven't.. (Why is 'had never chosen' wrong? I don't understand.)

2. Don't worry about me, I never chosed a wrong person before. ('Never chosed' is okay but #1 is not okay?)

Thanks.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
There is no 'chosed' in English, Jack. And #1 requires simple past, while #2 can accept simple past.
