    Im 17 and Ive never had a girlfriend despite wanting one for years. I think the problem is since i was kicked out of the mixed school I was at and put in to a boys school meaning through my teen years I never learned how to talk to girls and now im very shy. Also as I never made many friends that were girls I dont really socialize with girls. Not only am I lonely but I get so embarrased when my friends ask if Ive got a girl and Im still saying no. What do I do? I really need help.

    I''m 29 and really want.... I don't know, a few grand to just waste on useless stuff.

    What it comes down to you need understand the rules of coversation, (surely youtube videos and books on it), its a simple game you have to play for lack of a better word. Learn to undestand and read body language, and know when someone is bored and to leave them alone.

    I would have to write pages to get you started on getting out there an interacting with the world in the way you want.

    But some tips, it should be nutural, unintentioned conversation with people for the fun, and sake of conversation, a little starter, say hello to a random person, build that confidence up. People, especially women want to be the ones talking, but you need to listen, add to, and equire further into the topic of their interest while at the same time, giving away bits about yourself without talking too much and dominating the conversation. Be yourself of course (but not bad habits) and see where that gets you, do not expect sucess, but keep at it. Then of course theres the whole flirting and teasing and all sorts of complexities wer're supposed to learn along the way. But you should be able to pick it up as you go, you're young enough and have enough time.

    One rule, don't not distance yourself from someone you think you like and build up this 'thing' about them, from the beginning get out there and introduce yourself, if can be done appropriately so. The more you know someone, the more complicated it is.

    And remember if things are going bad, you're not getting the sucess you want, dont try and blame other people, what it is you are doing wrong, and try to imrprove on that, watch and listen to other people around you.

    I'm 22 and I've been saying that for 5 years now. I can always bang them, but then something always goes wrong.

    To be fair, if you don't get any matches you should probably commit while you still can lol

    You seriously don't need one, trust me, lots of people feel lie they do but the reality of it is that it brings less than what you think.

    To be fair if a girl is unresponsive to a line like that then she's not worth it, regardless of her age

    What you need is practice! If you have a sister or an aunt or even your mum, practice flirting with them to give you confidence for when you find a real girlfriend!
