I knew I was an attractive person in University. I got a lot of stares, and attention etc.
Sometimes when I'd talk about someone my mother would dismiss it as 'why is she talking about someone whose not thinking of her?" I realize now it's hurtful but it's true.
For example, my ethnicity was South Asian (Indian). A lot of the times I was attracted to white guys and felt the feeling was mutual. It was sweet :). But I realize now those guys unless they really liked me would not really think of me much, as most people think they will end up with someone of the same culture.

In general, I agree with your mom. You should be spending your energy on guys who are worth your time. At your age, you have limitless options in terms of dating so why waste your time on guys who aren't interested in you? But then again, the heart wants what it wants so I can't say to not think about these guys -- I just tend to side with your mom on this one that it's just not particularly productive.0
