    How to meet someone???

    I’m 25 and I’ve never had a boyfriend. I was an ugly teenager. When I gained a little confidence I got another kick in the metaphorical balls, so I was scared to approach boys. In college I thought this could be it! I lost weight, dressed differently and I really quite liked myself but I kind of missed when everyone appearently got the handbook ‘how to get a date’.
    Over the years people said ‘you should be more confident’, ‘dress more nicely’, ‘get a new haircut’ and the swiftly moved on to ‘you seem too confident’ and ‘your clothes and hair say high maintenance’ – so basicaly I’ screwed either way. How do you even meet men? What do they DO in their free time?? My best friend can’t help.
    She never even has to lift a finger. Men approch her at work, on coffee breaks, walking home, grocery shopping, during sports.
    The only ones I attract are creepy old men who tell me I don’t need to be scared of them. I need to do this myself but I can’t even find any?! I always think they’re taken.

    Have you considered online dating?

    I kinda understand what you’re saying, in that in middle school/early high school I didn’t dress well and wasn’t very attractive. Things improved but the only guys who were interested were jerks or only after a hook up. Now I’m almost 21, I’ve only had one bf and it was long distance. I see guys look at me but rarely do I end up chatting with a guy I find attractive.

    Perhaps you’re a bit intimidating. I know this is my problem too. Have you approached guys at all? It wouldn’t hurt to try and do so. And if you’re open to it consider online dating.
