    I never used to... for some reason, since I got a boyfriend guys have approached me loads... something to do with confidence?

    I dunno, I was never really bothered before anyway.

    You get on with life, but hey it doesn't stop day dreaming I am entitled to that much I think!
    Definitely agree!

    I went to a girls school, and had no contact with guys really but assumed that when in sixth form we were joined up with the boys school once a week I'd meet more boys and get some attention- nope...also started a supermarket job when I was in sixth form, met some nice guys there but again nothing more than friendly chitchat...

    Naturally I fancied a person in each of these situations, leading to much daydreaming but completely unrequited.

    It sucked some days, I think I 'coped' by being pretty optimistic generally that something would happen, but by the time I left for uni and nothing had I really didn't have 'meeting a boy who likes me' on the brain, because I essentially thought it wasn't going to happen at all.

    Happy ending- my boyfriend, the first boy EVER to be interested in me, lived next door to me in halls. and nearly two years later I'm very happy.

    I honestly think it is about confidence and being happy with yourself, as I'm both of those things now and seem to get more attention than I ever used to, from a variety of types of people, nice and skuzzy...that might just be a coincidence though!

    In a society which constantly places a high emphasis on find a partner and a "right" partner for that matter. What do people fell like who never had any romantic attention at all, I mean not going on any dates, having no kisses, not even hearing that a person fancies them. Going through life as a teenager and hearing about different people hooking up, having break ups, claiming to be in love and even reading about relationships on this site, does it make you fell left out, angry, bitter?

    I'm now past my 18th birthday and can safely say have had no attention from the opposite sex at all, but I' ve lead quite a different life from most people up to this point some it really doesn’t upset me.

    So I was just wondering what does it fell like for other people, are you afraid if no one has found you attractive no one ever will and you will just have to settle for the ugliest person you can find, or are you resentful to your own self for not putting your self in a situation with more opportunities?
    Feels as if you wrote this especially for me. It doesn't bother me really...afterall, I lead a very different life.

    I'm 18 and no-one has ever expressed any interest in me, except for when I was like 11... I guess part of it is down to going to a girls' school so I don't know many guys, but other people at my school do so it's not really an excuse. I think that because I'm always surrounded by girls, most of whom are more attractive than me, I don't see why any guy would be interested in me rather than anyone else. I'm not particularly attractive, or interesting, or funny etc. I dunno, maybe I'll meet someone at uni but I'm worried that everything will just stay the same.

    Tip for girls who want attention but don't get it:

    Lose weight
    Wear makeup
    Good dress sense

    Guaranteed to get you at least some attention if you are overweight, have a bad dress sense and don't wear make up atm. Also confidence is the most important thing. Confidence should come naturally with doing the above 3 numbers anyway. But yeh go to a club with how i said and you DEFFO will get attention.

    Well, having such an introverted personality means I am generally happy in myself and don't feel the need for any attention and approval from other people. So there isn't really any problem for me to 'cope' with.

    This would be much more difficult for girls and women than for men. It's all most of them have got.

    The amount of low self-esteem in this thread is quite pathetic.

    If you don't love yourself no-one else will.

    I had spots a lot when I was in my late teens. The only attention I got in that time was from a really fat ugly chick in sixth form with a possible personality disorder.

    In the last year, have had a bit - went out with a girl I actually fancied back in sixth form, and get the occasional half decent looking girl seek my attention in clubs etc, but still only rarely.
