Ok so I'm 21 and I have never had a girlfriend, hook up, or anything like that. I'm really concerned about this because I'm a pretty social guy with a lot of interests. Some of my interests include a lot of outdoor and nature things like hiking and kayaking. I also love music and actually collect records. One of my hobbies is collecting old antiques that I find including coins or stamps etc. I'm more of a cat person than a dog person, but I still love all animals a whole lot! I'm a big gamer also, like a lot of other guys. I really enjoy going to movies and hanging out with friends. I occasionally party but I don't really drink much and I also am a non-smoker. People seem to find me well spoken and humorous as well as kind and fun to be around from what I have heard.
However, I feel that I am at a big disadvantage looks-wise. How much do girls usually take looks into account? These are a few pictures of me, you will have to copy and paste this link. Also, there may be a space in the. and the com, so just delete the space:
Please let me know your honest impressions as it would be greatly appreciated. I actually posted some pics on an image board in something called a "rate thread" and got pretty negative response, so it's had me quite depressed to be honest.
I have actually created some dating site accounts like POF and OkCupid as well as trying out Tinder. I've had no luck with all of these and I didn't even get any Tinder matches. Overall I am not so sure what to do about this. I am admittedly a bit shy, but still, I do know how to not be socially awkward when talking to girls. I actually have some female friends.
Most Helpful Girl
You're an average looking guy like you're no dylan o'brien but you're also not ugly, maybe try to smile it will make you seem more welcoming and friendly which will make it easier for a girl to talk to you. If a guy told me he collected coins and stamps I'd probably assume that you were really boring so when talking about your interests maybe don't mention that but definitely mention your love of the outdoors majority of girls will love that. When your talking to a girl make sure when she talks you stay in tune and seem interested or else she'll think your arrogant. Try not to joke around too much like you can crack the odd joke here and there when it's appropriate to do so but don't joke around the whole time it will come off as childish and immature. When you first talk to a girl try to give her a subtle compliment like she has a pretty smile it nice eyes. Don't give up yet you'll find the right girl:)1
