I have never had a girlfriend
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Male
hi. i'm 16 years old and i have never had a girlfriend before, i had a couple of chances to change that, but was afraid to get rejected. pretty much every girl i've asked out only liked me as a friend, and i can get really depressed about it when i see other couples at school or get reminded of it. so is this normal? sometimes i wonder if i'll ever find someone. right now there is this girl i really like(and we get along really good and flirt) but i've stopped talking to her( i have my reasons)for like 2 weeks now. and i never told her how i felt. what should i do? what can i do so that girls stop seeing me as only a friend? i think i might be falling for this girl and it kills me and she doesn't even know. please help me v day's coming up and i don't know what to do. thank you.
Sixteen is still young so don't worry so much.
The way to get girlfriends is to become friends with them and then ask them out. You seem to have the knack for making friends and flirting.
Once you feel comfortable with them you don't have to make a big deal about asking them out. Just tell them you are "developing feelings" for them and see how they respond. Then ask them to go to a movie or dinner with you.
Try to work on your shyness, don't let it become a habit. One good way to become more outgoing is the say Hi to as many people as you can as you walk down the hallway. Say Hi plus use their name. A smile helps too.
Good luck! George
