    Okay so I'm an 18 year old lad. I'd consider myself fairly good looking, just under 6 foot, light eyes very dark hair, I take good care of myself and treat girls with absolute respect BUT my confidence with girls has been shot down since my girlfriend left me last year (it was a rough one, 3 years and ended in heartbreak) and I lost most of my closest friends at the same time...though I feel its the right time to get 'back in the game'.

    I am on a gap year and have NOwhere to meet girls. I have plenty of friends, mostly boys and they are in a similar position to me but seem to be unfazed by their lack of girl time

    I feel ready to start dating or whatever you want to call it again, but I have no school/college, I have a few girl mates but they've gone to uni so they cant exactly introduce me to their friends

    What does someone in my position do? I'm not sure how I feel about approaching girls in the street and don't really want to message random girls in my area on instagram which I feel is a bit weird...is the only place to meet girls in clubs? Is waiting until uni the only way?

    NEED SOME ADVICE as I feel like I am going to just be with my boys until next year which is okay but not ideal...

    Thank you

    Get a hobby and meet people that way? But don't go in with the intention of trying to date the first girl you see.

    What are your interests? Join a club or something or start doing something that interests you weekly or something and then you might meet someone, at least that way you'd know that she's interested in the same things, and you have something to talk about
