Someone said it's the starter....but i would imagine there would have been cranking a some point

If the engine is 'rolling over' then it is not a starter. However, If the engine is not 'rolling over' then you may want to get the starter checked. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If it checked and is ok; I would check all of the fuses. Ignition switches do go bad, but the starter is the more likely culprit if is not cranking.

Check your gear position switch. Your car has to sense a Park or Neutral position to engage starter.

could also be bad wires
