I never got much attention in high school,bad hair,braces,shy etc.. but after graduating last summer and making an effort with my shyness and appereance I've been on a few dates and been flirted with etc.. (I seem to attract the geeky or artsy type guys). I've now noticed if I find out someone likes me( I am horrendous at reading 'signals' and have terrible self esteem) I suddenly find myself starting to like them back,and find little things I like about them to further make myself like them..even if I stop and think clearly about it I really dont like them..I'm just bewildred anyone could like me and feel I need to learn to accept what attention I get if any....I now realise it isn't healthy and dont know how to stop...I mean I can't get any guy I want..and the guys I actually like from afar tend to not like me back..

To me it seems like that you are currently in the phase where you feel being in any relationship is better than no relationship. Just remember that you have to have a gain from the relationship as well as the other person so don't rush it unless you are sure you want to spend time with x person. However you still have to be open, as although you might have not found anything special in a person that likes you, it doesn't mean that they are not, as they might have not shown it yet.
