It seems like every time I'm interested in a guy, he either doesn't feel the same way or doesn't even know I exist. As for the guys that do actually like me, I either don't like them back or lose interest really quickly and I don't know why. I don't know if I'm just being shallow (if so I definitely don't mean to) or what. I have no idea what's wrong with me. I know I'm still young and I have plenty of time for dating, but as a sophomore in high school, it would be nice to have a boyfriend or at least a date for homecoming. What should I do?
Why can't I get a boyfriend?

Age, that's why. I'd guess you're 17 years old (due to being a sopmore) and at that age most guys (and a lot of girls too) are not mature end responisble enough to maintain a relationship over time. I know this sounds completely ridicolous, but the hard truth is that the brain's prefrontal cortex (which is responsible for things like decision making, planning and priorizing) is not fully developed until far into the mid 20's, sometimes even 30's. Hence why at your age many people are no ready and arguably not able to commit like that.
I'm not saying you'll never find one, i'm simply saying that maybe if comitment is what you want, you should take a few steps back, relax, and wait a few years. And if you worry about ending alone all life; did you know people get older and older before they marry? (compared to, say 50 years ago).
So just chill out a little, and don't rish things, even if i understand your frustration.0
Do be impatient dont give up myfriend. remember love comes softly. rather than looking for the guy to come be the right person for him to come too. your very precious and and highly valuable to settle for anything less. u will love again2
That's a common occurace, eventually you will find someone.1
Don't ever rush into a relationship. Even though it's nice to have a boyfriend, you must make sure that the one you love is right for you, and you're right for him.
Also, don't ever go "looking for love". I've seen many relationships that are established like that, and those are the ones that crash the fastest/hardest. Be patient. Analyze the one you love and make sure he's good for you, more so on the inside than the outside, because his inner features are the ones that really make the man. The one who's right for you will come to you in time. Hell, it might be a good friend of yours, and the feelings are just dormant.0
find the right guy0
Just don't worry about it and just let it happen. I didn't get my first gf until senior year. You're still really young. Just enjoy friends and school.0
dress more slutty.0
I'm in the same boat as you. Always have been and always will be.

Make a research about soulmates they are the best thing u can find ever. I was exactly like u in fact I really liked this guy who was older and I started talking with one of his friends and he helped me and finally I started liking his friend and now his friend is my boyfriend and the boy I liked lose the opportunity so the Life is unpredictable and u don't know who u will en up with. Don't wait for it, it will came on its time0
If I were you i wld right down some of the good qualities you have or heard your friends say about you as well as being honest about what you think you might need help with.. like are you clingy? Talk too much? Your appearance? Just things to think about.. confidence is the key if you present yourself with that and not shy it will definitely help1
