I'm a fairly attractive girl, but I'm kinda shy. And I see all these girls who are not quite as pretty as me (not being mean, but its kinda true), and not even that nice, getting boyfriends and dating and no one asks me out or approaches me...what am I doing wrong?
It's not that you are doing something wrong,but rather you may not be doing something right. You need to open up a bit more. Your shyness may preventing you from showing everyone who you really are.
The thing I sense is that you are confusing being good looking and attractive. Looks are genetic and it's either you have them or not and in your case you do. Being attractive is more than just good looks, it includes the way you hold yourself, your personality, the way you interact with your environment. being attractive is using everything that defines you and using it to "attract" others whether they be friends or potential b/f's. Good luck.
in my opinion looks aren't all that matters because it could be the hottest girl in the world but if I don't like her personality itll never work out no matter how good looking she may be if I don't like her personality I will not date her

Maybe they don't look as attractive as you, but they have more attractive personalities. And the people around you are going for personality as opposed to looks
