Im afraid that in highschool I won't have anyone to take me to the dance and get the experience. I'm a bit over average in the smarts department and I feel as though it intimidates some guys. I'm extremely dedicated, perfectionist and athlete.
A guy friend told me that guys like me but won't tell me who and I think he's just telling me to make me feel better as no guy has asked me out. I'm afraid that this streak will continue through highschool. I'm tempted to stop trying to be myself so hard and figure out what other people are doing right that I'm not. I'm not rude or mean so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm tired of waiting around but don't want to directly ask a guy as I'm scared of rejection.
Any tips for highschool dating? How did you navigate? Any stories from highschool dating?

By the sound of it, I don't think your looks are the problem, but the fact you are intimidating is. I know for a fact it is extremely hard to come across as less intimidating, so what I would say is to just ask a guy on a date yourself. That is what I did and it worked out pretty well for me :) Besides, it's not the the 18th century anymore: girls can take the lead nowadays.
