Growing up, I never had much experience dating guys, nor anyone to teach me. I learned by messing up. (But was never a whore) After graduating high school, I had dated one guy and I was inexperienced in love & dating. I was only 18 and he was 26. In general, I am mature for my age--even when I was 18, yet obviously not as mature as I am now. I feel I've grown a lot as a person in the past 2 years. (I'm 20) Anyways, this guy would call and text me, and took me on one date. After that one date, he never spoke to me again. I felt embarrassed and stupid because I really liked this guy, yet felt that first impression of me ruined my chances with him. I know a lot more now, yet it's too late & I always think I should have done/said things differently at the time. Recently, I went to an event which we bumped into each other at. I looked great, and hoped he would be interested again after seeing me, hoping I would have another chance to prove I am better than the first impression he got of me. Yet, no call or text. I feel like crying, yet can't get over the sadness of my mistakes ruining my chances. How can I just move on from this feeling?

Don't beat yourself too hard. I remember being that nervous too and dorking out. I'm not saying you dorked out; that's just what I did. Of course he doesn't really know you as a person to reject you, but it seems he didn't feel enough of a connection with the impression he got. Was there anything you talked about that might have turned him off?
The best way to move on is to flirt and go out with other men. With more exposure to guys, you will better get over your anxiety. It would really be great if you had a girlfriend or two to show you some of the ropes.0
