I'm not sure why. I would say that I'm average looking, and I'm 17, 5'5" & 134lbs. I have a shy personality with people I don't know, but as soon as we become friends, I'm a very open and talkative person. Am I doing something wrong? And what can I change or do better to catch a guy's attention?
Most Helpful Guy
Age, most likely.
Your face is very pretty. That height/weight is normal, it won't be anything that will interfere with your ability to date. Being shy will slow things down, sure, but it won't be a dealbreaker long term. For the most part, your problem will simply be that you are young, and that guys in that age category are struggling with hormones and with trying to figure out what they want. A lot of very attractive women, that would be an amazing 'catch', go their entire teens without having a guy ask them out on a date. Or just have guys ask them out that are looking for sex, or some kind of friends with benefits situation.
My best guess would be that it may just take some time for a guy to realize what's going on. Part of it could be your personality (that obviously doesn't come across in your picture, or in the little description you provide here), and that will obviously factor in. Part of it could be that you don't appear to be approachable, which also can't really come across in a single picture. A very attractive girl that is also very shy can often come across as unapproachable because her inability to maintain eye contact and smile, coupled with her looking like she should have a lot of guys' attention, makes a combination that makes her seem uninterested. So that could be a factor. A third factor could be hobbies and interests - if you don't have anything to talk to guys about, they will often struggle to find that opening line to use on you. Doing things that guys do, being places that guys are, will increase the likelihood of finding one with the combination of interest and courage required to make that move.
At the end of the day, it's a numbers game, and you want to do what you can to make the odds ever in your favour. Your picture makes you appear far above average looking, so you already have a leg up in that department. And that's important. It will be the supporting qualities, or just time for guys to catch up in the maturity department. Looking the way you do, I would be absolutely shocked if you popped up on here 8 years from now saying you were 25 and had never been asked out or had a boyfriend.0
