    Hi! I'm 23 and never had a girlfriend. I have no confidence.

    My mates say I'm "good looking" and I shouldn't worry, but I just don't think much of myself or I always pick flaws in myself and I hate that.

    I keep worrying I'll be single forever or something because of my confidence.

    How can I feel better about myself?

    Honestly if you keep overthinking things it's gonna affect how you talk to girls...
    Focus on one thing you like about yourself, it could be anything really, and then learn to like other parts by giving yourself compliments....even if you don't believe them at first (I know it sounds stupid but eventually it will work). Also, there must be a reason you're picking flaws.... you could try to see what it is specifically you don't like and how you could change it (e.g. for appearance go to the gym).

    Sorry thats all I can think of..

    Go to the gym and lift some heavy ass weights. Go out and meet people.
