Is it just me, or does it always seem that shy, quiet girls lose out? I'm 26 years old, almost 27 years old and I've never been asked out on a date or even liked by a guy. I think I'm a positive happy person, but I'm not that type of girl to just walk up to a guy and start a conversation. I'm more quiet and reserved in that way. I find that girls who flaunt themselves and post pictures of themselves on Facebook do really well with the guys. I, on the other hand, hate pictures of myself. I really do not want to change myself. Is it just me? Do I just fall into the category of "not likeable" to men?

To be honest, I believe shy guys lose out far more than girls, at least girls only have to wait for the approach (so it is widely believed).As a shy girl imagine if you were having to do what's expected of a guy.
Anyhow, there's no problem with being quiet and reserved, it's another if you seem unapproachable, you already express a dislike of photos of yourself, just be careful that you are not transmitting that image. It won't deter everyone, but will most likely deter the good ones.
Be weary of flaunting yourself on social media, you will get attention, but it's unlikely to be from the right people.
I doubt that no-one's ever liked you and would rather believe that as long as you have been around the opposite gender, it's possible that someone liked you but either were shy, or believed that it was one way i.e. you didn't seem to show interest.
It is advisable that you emit some form of sign to guys you like. The are well know and yes generic but it's a guide of indication of interest (IOI) which is useful for both parties.2
