Well I'm 18 and apparently if you look at my face you would think I'm 14. (I don't like to wear make up, so I don't)
I look a lot younger also because I'm 5'1 and I pretty much have a flat chest. I'm shy,(although confident), humble, honest and really friendly with strangers who also seem shy, I try to help them out a bit. I've been told that when I talk it seems like I'm my age if not older.
I'm always overlooked when it comes to guys and everybody thinks of me as the "little sister that need protecting" type, even my new and old friends. The people I like never like me in that way, so I've never had a boyfriend.
Is it because I look so young that boys my age won't date me?
Most Helpful Guy
I feel that the way you describe yourself seems very attractive. You sound like you have a positive attitude and you know who you are. Some people have left advice saying that you should try to put on a little make up to make yourself look a little older. Others have said that you needn't worry about it and that you should simply wait for the right guy. Well, putting on make up will probably work. Wearing make up might catch men's eyes more often but by wearing make up you may have to be more careful as you might get unwanted attention. And as far as waiting goes, that could work but it could take longer than you want it to. I mean, wait it out and you're bound to meet the right guy, but when? But from what I gather, you don't seem to be big on the make up thing and you probably don't want to wait for Mr. Right.
Now since you seem to have an idea of who you are and you talk comfortably about yourself in a positive way, I think you should try to work harder with what you've got.
"I'm 5'1 and I pretty much have a flat chest. I'm shy,(although confident), humble, honest and really friendly"
Although you're 5'1 I feel that would not be a problem for men since a lot (not all)of men find really tall women too much. From numerous studies, it's been concluded that majority of men tend to find women that are shorter than themselves more attractive than women that are taller.
Breast size also does not matter. Sure there are plenty of men who enjoy larger breasts but there are just as many who prefer them smaller. Either way this does not matter because that argument is more for sexual attraction and sex itself. So the traditional A cups or D cups argument is irrelevant (in my humble opinion) on the subject of dating.
Being shy, humble, honest and friendly is (again in my opinion) one of the most attractive set of personality traits a woman can have. So since you have an attractive personality there's one topic left on attracting men. Weight. Now since you're 5'1 with breasts on the smaller size, I assume that a healthy and attractive weight you should be ranges between 100 and 135 depending on muscle tone and amount of body fat. Assuming that you are healthy and happily within this range, here's what I advise:
Be a bit more flirtatious. You said you are comfortable with yourself so show it. It's cute for a girl to be shy but being too shy can be simply annoying. Try asking new guys you meet (or guys that you've known for a while) out on dates. From what you've described, it sounds as though you're more likely attracting shy guys instead of more forward guys. So if that's the case which I believe it to be (I could be wrong) then I think you should try breaking the shy guys out of their shell. You might be surprised at who will say yes if you were to ask them out.
Anyways I hope this helped out somewhat. Whichever you decide between make up, waiting, or being more forward with men, I hope it works out for you.1
