    Heya
    I am in love with one of my closest friends from home, but am trying to move on, I'm a second year at uni now and am 19 but have have no experience with guys.

    I don't know what is wrong with me but no guys have ever really shown any interest in me. I'm not good looking but I wouldn't say i am hideous or anything, very tall and quite thin, not much in the way of boobs and a pretty average face. I am a nice person though, caring, easygoing. I am quite shy (and it gets worse if I like the look of a guy) so maybe that comes across as rude or something.

    Basically I am now a second year with only a handful of friends, all girls. Rarely go out (as i often just end up feeling awkward in clubs) and spend most of my time really missing the friend I have fallen for back home (he does not feel the same way but we are still close)

    I guess I am just looking for advice on way to open up more, relax more so I will actually enjoy nights out (i do like it on the odd occasion that i let myself go) and how to actually go about the whole flirting thing.

    Thanks

    Socialise a bit more. Guys aren't that scary. You have a group of friends already so maybe see if you can go to a party with them. Most people kinda know each other by face at a party so its easier to strike up a conversation.

    Well I think what he said was along the lines of 'I only see you as a friend but maybe that will change one day' so basically I assume that if he was to change his mind he would just let me know.

    Thanks, that is kind of what I have been doing but it just seems that guys are never interested, I think I might put them off though

    I don't know the ins and outs of it but they could be playing it cool. I do when I am going to a party alone. Also some men may feel emasculated to date a taller women some even want someone significantly shorter.
