I always wonder why don't I get asked out? I'm not trying to be conceited or anything but I always been called beautiful and very attractive by friends and strangers and I've been told that I should become a model. But guys never ask me out. I once told a friend that I rarely get approach by guys and she said maybe because they are intimidated by me which I found funny because at times I do make an effort to smile a bit to come of more open. Also I'm very nice to everyone I meet I love to laugh and be goofy also I love to dress up.
Im just tried of being single. I'm 20 and never had a boyfriend or been on a real date. And I've been open to interracial dating.
Well the top reasons are 1) Guys are intimidated by you 2) You dont seem to be open enough for approach 3) You dont give off a positive vibe 4) You are not interesting enough Well you sure do look good, so I dont think that looks are a problem. Do you try to carry the conversation forward? Even though you might be smiling and all.. if you dont put much effort into it and expect the guy to do everything, they'll not ask you out. I sure won't. Many girls have this habit of giving one word answers and not asking questions. I can help identify the problem if I get some more details eg, a recent conversation or so.
I get asked out a lot only because I look kinda 'submissive' and shy. If you are the center of attention by making people laugh, they might feel pressure or not get the chance to approach you as you are surrounded by your friends.
If you really want to get asked out, start hanging out on your own a bit more. Walk places instead or use public transport. Dress nicely at all times. Have your hair out your face and clothes that aren't revealing but enhance your assets.
I've started noticing patterns and get asked out daily on the days I do this.
The most beautiful girls get approached the least, because guy are more intimidated. They'll either think "She's most likely taken", "Probably she's a stuck up bitch", "Why would she wanna be with someone like me?" ... so they end up not approaching. That's why the end up being "forced" to approach themselves in order to get a guy. Don't get discouraged, it's not that guys don't like you, so try to make the approach yourself.
I see many girls that make the same mistake when it comes to guys. Now I don't know if this includes you or not but do you give men any sign that you want them to approach you. Most men will not approach a woman unless the woman lets him know it is ok to approach. Do you flirt? for example.
Alright, I am going to give you the truth so hold on to your self esteem because this will hurt. I am not sure if you have noticed but the majority of men on this website seem to think any woman looks beautiful. The same is true outside of this website. Have you ever noticed on Facebook or Twitter how many guys say a woman is beautiful numerous times? So most men seem to think any woman looks beautiful which makes you average. The real question is why don't you ask men out? They aren't just going to come to you like in romance novels.
Exactly what @truthbeknown said, he deserves MHO in my opinion. Only thing I would add, maybe try not dressing up too much. A little is alright, but a casual look can be cute or sexy sometimes. Also it doesn't feel like the guy isn't dressed good enough for you. So maybe try to be a little more approachable through your clothing.
I swear every question like this needs a warning before posting saying: "This question has been asked too many times. Are you sure you don't want to read a handy take on your question?" Or some FAQ to be directed about why you dont get approached.
It can be a bit of a turn off if you are too out going or have too many friends or your life is too fast or loud. Maybe from a guys point of view you are just too busy of a person or your life seems too exciting with a bit of high maintenance mixed in.
It's difficult to know without knowing you. You said you were a bit shy. People don't expect attractive people to be shy so when you are shy they may take it as though you are being 'off' and don't want to talk to them. Also, a lot of guys prob wouldn't think you'd be interested so don't bother to ask.
Because good looks and a friendly demeanor alone generally will not suffice. Since you wish to be with someone so much, have you ever thought to maybe do the approaching yourself? No reason why you have to wait around for a guy to one day to it. It's 2015, not the middle ages!
Maybe you don't go out enough. I used to be more of a homebody and I rarely got asked out. When I started going out at night more I got multiple guys each night. My looks didn't change but guys had more opportunities to get to know me. Also when you do go out don't be afraid to make eye contact with them and confidently smile
