    Just be more social. You will never meet any guy if you are always at home. You need to hang out with your friends so they can introduce you to other guys.

    hmm well if you had a picture maybe i could give advice on first impressions 🙂 but i just think you need to be more outgoing. just cuz u havent dated a man doesnt mean u should be shy. and also maybe just ask close friends on whut u think you could work on to attract boys– 🙂 good luck!

    Wow. That’s impressive.

    Do you talk to guys?
    Do you hang out where single guys might be?

    I am bored (at work) message me and maybe we can figure something out that will work for you.

    what do you think is keeping you single? maybe you need to mingle more. expose yourself to different things, attend parties, meet new fun people, flirt subtly and just have fun being yourself, if nobody took notice of how fun and adorable you are, then those uworthy guys are not WORTHY of you.

    two things… confidence… and social situations. join a group at church, a sport league… a book club… go out with friends… you have to meet people to date people. Plus then you can meet someone who is interested in the same things you are. Once you are in a social situation, you need to have confidence… if you sulk in the corner- no one will want to talk to you. Stand tall, look at men in the eyes and smile smile smile. If you think you are hot stuff so will everyone else in the room. trust me on this one, I used to be somewhat shy myself- about four years ago I told myself ‘who cares what anyone else thinks I know what I’m worth’ and pretty soon guys were buzzing all around me.

    don’t put too much effort into attracting a guy- go places, look cute and have a good time- that’s all it takes 🙂

    go out to places that interest you (so you can find someone with shared interests) and, if possible, casually strike up conversation with someone who looks interesting. don’t focus so much on flirting and just focus on talking and (if you are interested) seeming interested. don’t lay it on too thick, or thin either. these things just happen. also, keep up with grooming obviously.

    just be yourself, and be friends first, go to places where there are men you can meet

    take your time for this, because all comes when it should come…..if your rush it, you can find troubles……don’t envy couples that have been in a relationship and you haven’t. take care and let the guys approach to you, and you will be surprise how many there are just for you, but be selective and cautious…because once inside a relation with a boyfriend, you won’t be able to get out so easily. So that’s why I said to be careful. Good luck and take care.

    You have to be happy being alone before you can be happy in a relationship. If you explore your passions, creativity, and intelligence and beam with enthusiasm and charisma, people gravitate to you. When you seem needy, pathetic, and worst of all, boring, good people avoid you like the plague. But there are a couple of codependent losers who will take advantage of your neediness and prey on you–don’t get stuck with one of them just because you’re lonely. Take my advice and before you know it, you’ll have more problems deciding which boy to date or if you even want to close out your option to continue dating and having fun.

    Hi, I’m Leslie, and the first thing I want to say is, “relax!” LOL! Believe it or not, there are a lot of 20 year old guys out there just as apprehensive about being inexperienced as you are.

    I’m glad you asked this question because there are some simple things you need to be aware of that will save you a lot of heart ache.

    1. Know what you are looking for.

    Do some soul searching and be honest with yourself about what you want. Are you looking for a “relationship” or just somebody you can hang out with and have a good time with?

    2. Know what kind of guy is a good fit for you.

    If you don’t have an idea of what you want you’ll waste time tasting all the flavors. At the very least, you should make a list of some specific things that are your “must have’s.” For example, he must be a non-smoker, non-drinker, employed, intelligent, respectful, honest, etc. You get the picture.

    3. Don’t expect to walk down the isle with the first one you meet!

    If you are shopping for a house you probably aren’t going to sign a contract after walking into the first one, right? Well, you shouldn’t expect to find Mr. Right on the first date or even the first dozen guys you date. I know when a hot guy pays you attention it’s really easy to let common sense fly out the window, but you are in control not your emotions. Don’t fall in love after the first kiss. It isn’t easy, but you should always keep your head, keep things light and keep your options open in the beginning.

    Getting a boyfriend is as easy as saying, “hello.” Just scope out someone you think you might be interested in and introduce yourself. Nature will take its course from there, LOL!
