I know i'm still really young at 17... but lately I've been feeling like I'll be single forever... which i really don't want. Maybe it's because of all the couples i see at school and then realized I've never had a girlfriend because I'm shy. The only reason why I'm so shy is because I've been insulted and disrespected for the majority of my life. I also have to consider that I'm not really attractive like people say i am... Its been so tough lately. I've had crushes on about 3-5 girls and couldn't even talk to most of them... it makes me mad because now I'll never know what some of those girls thought of me. The girl i like now will probably just end up the same exact way. Anyone else ever felt the same as me?
On top of that, my grades aren't all that great either... probably about average :/
Hopeless, pathetic, stupid, ugly... that's exactly how i feel about myself... to the point where I've been fucking depressed and have had suicidal thoughts... I don't know if i can go on much longer... it hurts man... seriously 😭
Ik girls want a guy that is smart, funny, good looking, and Loving/Caring bbut the only quality i have out of those is caring...

I know I'm only 14, but as crazy and ridiculous as it sounds, but I get what you mean!
In my grade, most girls have had their first boyfriend and their first kiss but I have not.
I feel like what you're doing is right. Don't just go with anyone to be able to say you have a girlfriend, go with someone whom you truly have feelings for!
The sad thing is, you may feel unwanted now, but you sound like a really sweet guy and I'm most definitely sure some girl will be honored to be your girlfriend! Don't worry, your princess will come around! Good luck!5THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

You need to find something that gives you a sense of purpose. Something that will distract you from all the negative thoughts running around in your head, and something from which you can gain some confidence.
Success with women is about much more than most people think. Looks help but attitude and behavior is very important too. Right now, you've lost perspective, which is very easy to do at your age, and men (and women for that matter) without the proper prospective often struggle with dating. You're placing far too much value into having a girlfriend, and it's not attractive. I guarantee you come off as nervous and unconfident and perhaps even desperate, none of which is attractive.
I can't stress enough how important having a positive attitude is. No one really wants to be around a pessimistic person that is always or usually in a bad mood. People want to be around positive people with a good grip on life and who put them in a better mood.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
