Every time I see people in relationships I get really sad and wish I had a boyfriend. I'm almost 20 and never really had a serious relationship with a guy before, but I really want to have one. But I get really scared and nervous to talk to guys and whenever I start talking to a guy my brother will call me desperate and say mean things to me, like "oh that guys doesn't actually like you" or "you're ugly and can't get anyone." This only upsets me more because I really want a boyfriend but I don't even know how I could get one or how to approach guys.. Help?

First of all, stand up to your brother and tell him to back off. He's a jerk. Don't listen to him. He should focus on his own dating life, or lack there of.
It's good that you're talking to guys. Keep doing that. I'd make some friends, and good ones who are supportive. It would help to be happier with yourself and have a higher self-esteem before you jump into a serious relationship. You're only 19; that's really young, so don't worry so much.0
