I'm 21 years old and never had a girlfriend and never held a girls hand, I commute to university and I'm pretty much a nerd to be honest, my sisters on the other hand were pretty much the popular sort and they were elected to positions in school government due to this as well as having numerous relationships, this has all come to this point of my mother telling me that I have no life and that astronomy and playing video games are not Hobbys and that I'm in her words, "a loser to girls because of the way I am", I really don't know What to say to this and I just want to know how to handle this and respond?

Wow such a disgrace that a mother can say that. Your hobbies are real hobbies, I wouldn't listen to her, girls aren't the most important thing at the moment in your life. Maybe you can just say you want to focus on your life goals first before looking for a girlfriend, or that you're afraid they will become a distraction to your studies? Why should she compare you to your sisters?3

It sounds silly, but the solution for me was to just say hello. I asked people's names and just greeted them by name when I saw them next. If I forgot, I apologized and asked again. People love this. Just a simple "Hi, Janine. how was your weekend?" will work wonders.0
