I'm a quiet, shy, straight-A student. Senior in high school. I don't have many friends but the one's that I do have are all in relationships or "talking" to someone. I'm not very attractive, I know, but I'm nice and kind. I've tried talking to guys but they're always so awkward around me, as if they don't like talking to me. I don't even have male friends. It usually doesn't bother me but yesterday, I went out with my friends and they all were cuddled with their boyfriends. And I witnessed our foreign exchange student, who hasn't even been here a month, already got asked out several times and has a date to homecoming. It's my last school dance and at everyone of them, I've had to watch as my friends danced with their SOs the whole night. Even my younger brother is dating.

It took me until I was 23 before I got in a relationship. I was in a similar position in that all my friends and family had partners and I always was the third wheel. I didn't even go to my year 12 formal (your prom). It seems like everyone is in a relationship because you've brought it to the front of your conscious. You can't stop thinking about it. And so wherever you see it wherever you go. It might seem like it's following you, but you're following it. We all do it over various things we can't stop thinking about.
Don't take it personally, just keep doing what you're doing. Focus on yourself, school and importantly keep putting yourself out there. Don't be afraid of rejection because it happens to everyone. And don't settle for the sake of it as well. I've done that and it never turns out well. Not being in a relationship doesn't make you any less of a person either.
Your time will come! So don't worry about that.0
