Why am I so undateable? I'm 17, 18 in December. I'm pretty quiet with new people, unless my friends are with me. I'm not really considered pretty, being tall, a bit chubby and having glasses to boot. I've watched as all my friends went on dates, became people's crushes, so on and so forth, but no guy (except people on the internet, who I don't think dating is exactly the brightest idea) has shown interest in me ever, no-one has ever asked me to date them, I mean I went to prom by myself which was pretty depressing. I'm unsure if it's just because I'm that quiet, prudish and nerdy type of girl who watches anime and plays videogames and people think I'm odd, or I'm just hella ugly; maybe it's a mix of both. Is there anything I can do to make myself more attractive to guys? I do try to make myself look as good as I can, but evidently it's not working out..

Something to understand in life is that each of us has to sell ourselves - whether this comes into romance, college applications, job interviews, or selling products in the real world. Now, so you may not be on the cover of Playboy... That doesn't mean that you can't be the best "you" that there is. So, reach deep down inside yourself and determine who you are. That is tough at 17 and comes with time, but, still, you know what you like and what you don't like. The good news is almost certainly, there are guys out there who like the same things you do. If you can "make the mental connection" with them on those things, romance will eventually follow. So, if video games are your thing, then play video games with guys. Maybe invite a guy over to play some MMPOG or something. Again, the key is to 1) be yourself and 2) find someone who shares your interests.0
