    How to deal with lack of male attention?

    I am 22 and I have never dated a guy before mainly because men never show interest in me or ask me out. I have never tried online dating though. I keep thinking, when will it be my time to find someone and I keep hoping. In college, I joined some organizations and went to some events and still no guy ever seem interested in me there. Never had a hookup with a guy in college. I rarely even see men looking at me. Sometimes I wonder if men don’t take much interest in me because I look so young. I am 5’4 and 120 lbs and people have told me that I look very young and have a youthful looking face. People have asked me why I look like I am 12. People always ask about my age all the time. The oldest age someone told me I look was 18. I don’t go to bars or clubs and I have never been the type of girl to get hit on/flirted with or approached by men anywhere and I have never had a guy ask for my number before both with and without engaging in some sort of conversation.

    The very few times I have been hit on were older uber/taxi drivers or older men on the street to tell me I am beautiful but that is practically it.

    All of this lack of interest from men has made me feel like I won’t find anyone since I am used to the lack of male attention. I feel too shy and scared to make a move myself on a guy because of this and it makes me believe that even though I don’t think I am ugly, that maybe I am not attractive after all and getting rejected would make me feel even worse than I do now. I keep telling myself that I am only 22 and maybe if I wait and play the waiting game, I will find a guy who will finally notice me and take an interested in me. But I get scared that I will be 30 and still in the same position. Love just seems so complicated and hard to me. I don’t know…….I just need advice.

    You Basically need to respond more and be flirty when doing it. Go out with your friends and meet guy friends and probably some of them has a crush on you.

    I am 26 and honestly have never been one to receive male attention until recently. I think it has a lot to do with my approach towards men, mostly because I am a very shy person and don’t really put myself out there. If you want to meet men in a romantic way I would suggest online dating as an alternative. I feel like it’s helped me to be more comfortable around men where I was initially shy. One of the greatest differences that I have noticed is that men pay attention to body language. When I go to public places or special events, I have tried to smile more and be more flirty in my interactions with males.
