    26 f, never dated

    Is there any hope for me in the dating world as an ugly, super skinny and short woman? I don’t wear makeup or revealing clothes, because I think it’s false advertising (that’s just my personal opinion, I don’t have a problem if other people do it). I’m 26, never been asked out on a date, never been kissed, never had sex.

    I tried my luck on online dating apps as well. I think I’m okay at conversation, if not the greatest. I hit off with a guy who super liked my profile, I had one picture on tinder (the most flattering pic of me). He wanted me to add him on Facebook, said that “I want to stalk you haha” . I’m not active on Facebook, my last post there is from 2015. But I added him and after that I never heard back from him. I think it’s because he saw other photos of mine and thought I wasn’t pretty enough for him.

    According to a NewsOk article over 85% of women wear makeup!
    How in the world do you expect to compete with them if you really are “ugly” and refuse to wear makeup.
    It’s up to you to look the best you can if you want to attract guys.

    The first thing a man looks for in a woman is physical attributes and fashion sense.
    Every hunter knows in order to catch their prey they have to use the “right bait”.

    There’s a reason why duck hunters use a whistle that makes “quack noises” and not one that makes “moo noises”
    Essentially you’ve admitted you know what men look for but have decided to refuse to equip yourself.
    You don’t get to tell the prey what they (should like or value).

    The next thing is being personable and having a great sense of humor.
    Odds are you’re not the ugliest woman to have ever walked the earth.
    I bet you can go to many public places and see unattractive women with boyfriends and spouses!
    A negative attitude is a turn off. Positive people are attractive.

    Alright, I’ll set up a GoFundMe to get some plastic surgery and hopefully I’ll catch some “prey”.

    In the mean time there’s nothing wrong with looking the best (you) can. Do what you can starting today!

    Whatever (you) feel makes you “ugly” there are ways to enhance it contact lens, diet, dermatologist, dentist, hair extensions, clothes. Working out to have a tone body, getting one’s hair done new color/style professionally, learn about various makeup/lipstick and techniques.
    Going out with girlfriends to dance/nightclubs or listen to live music, join some fun hobby groups on Meetup dot com

    Another option is to consider dating guys who are of a difference race or culture.
    What men find most attractive about women sometimes vary by culture.
    There are also niche dating sites.

    Ultimately when you feel good about yourself you exude positivity and confidence. No one should believe they are “ugly”.
    And even you’re never going to be a “knock-out” there should be some skill or talent you possess that gives you confidence.

    The world may not owe you anything but YOU owe yourself the world!

    26 is very young. Dating opportunities don’t stop at 26 or near that. Some people find that person well past 40 (more and more people do). So stop putting pressure on yourself. Stop making dating such a big deal of success/failure.

    enjoy life.
    learn how to enjoy life
    enjoy the things you love
    enjoy each day
    enjoy each moment

    If you can just keep doing that – you’ll be surprised how quickly somebody comes along. BUT YOU MUST do those things for THOSE THINGS – not because “this should help me find a partner”.

    Good luck.

    Honestly if he did that, he’s not worth your time and you deserve better than that. Patience it the key to happiness love. You’ll get there!

    I think you just have to believe in yourself more.
    I mean one guy on tinder literally says nothing.
    Just start approaching more guys around you. I know easier said than done but you can do it!
