Every girl gets asked to Homecoming except for me. I get treated like I'm invisible. I'm shy but there are also lots of shy girls that get asked out! I don't understand what's wrong with me. I bet no guys at my school actually know my name.

It may actually be this: sometimes a girl they come across as intimidating for whatever reason but one of the reasons that they sometimes may be intimidating to a boy is that boys believe that you are with another guy already. When that's the case they won't ask you out. I have heard more than one girl who is rather good-looking complain about not being able to get a boyfriend and it's simply because they are too good looking for any guy to assume that she's available. I have a girlfriend 26 years ago who before me did not have a boyfriend for about a year-and-a-half. She was beautiful and I could not believe it when she told me that. Indeed at first I didn't even try to go out with her because I fully expected that she had a boyfriend already. It was impossible for me to believe that at our college she was available. One summer day I met her in a place at school one on one and we got to be talking and it was then that I needed to pursue her.1

It depends on a lot of things. No one ever asked me out when I was in high school. Granted, I was ugly, but never mind that. Lol. None of those boys knew me. I did not go to middle or junior school with them. I did feel bad for many years because no one asked me, BUT, there is no reason why you can't invite someone out. If you want to be part of the social gang then you have to do something totally different that will get the attention to you. Invite a boy or girl from the mentally challenged class if there is one in your school. Invite a cute boy from the military if you know one. They can be your date even if they are older. The media is really giving police officers a really bad name... write a letter to your nearest department and tell them you wish to take an officer to the homecoming with you. Be creative! Don't be like those other girl. All they have now is... well... youthful looks. Also... make sure you look really pretty and you smile a lot. Make it count!1
