I'm really pessimistic in terms of me finding someone I would like to be with.
I do feel I am pretty- or at least decent. I feel I get a half decent amount of attention from guys.
I do make an effort to look nice. And while I am a shy girl, I have made significant effort to being more friendly and approachable.
I'm so much better at flirting and picking up on interest now. And I have confidence that I have good character and that I am decently desirable.
I am a very caring person and I am a good friend. Very loyal, trustworthy, good listener, etc.
I have flaws just like anyone else but nothing that makes me a terrible human being lol. Just things like being over sensitive, or thinking too much. Or lacking confidence in my abilities, or being stubborn.
The guys I get attention from I would just never date, for the most part. They tend to be younger and just not my type. I don't mean to reject guys out of being picky but I can't help it if I'm just not interested in them.
I do also approach guys I like who are my type, but the ones I have approached didn't work out.. But it's for the best.
I did give a chance to one guy who I thought was good, but he ended up being the biggest douchebag on the planet. Just a manipulative, sex crazed asshole who didn't respect me.
My friends all tell me that I am a very nice girl with good character and that I am a catch and that I will meet someone good eventually..
I'm just so pessimistic and I don't think I'll ever meet anyone.
Can anyone help me change my perspective?
I'm happy for my friends in their fulfilling relationships, but I also really want one of my own. :/

The way I see it... all it takes is one night out, for the right situation to present itself, and boom, you could potentially meet the right person tomorrow. You never know... That's how I think anyway.
The right place, and the right time and your life can change in an instant... Just get yourself out there, put your best foot forward, be sociable and fun, and put yourself in situations where things are more likely to happen and given time, they will...0
