    I am an 18 year old single male who struggles with girls because I only find a tiny proportion of them attractive. I certainly do NOT think I am too good for them, I just simply do not find them visually or sexually attractive.

    I do have 'a type' but it is very very specific It is not that I am being shallow, I know many girls who I think the world of and care for deeply but don't find remotely attractive?! I know looks aren't everything, but my level of attraction to most girls is so low that I am really having a hard time finding anyone at all and as a result fear that my low levels of attraction will hold me back, especially before I start university next September.

    Can anyone help me out or offer any forms of advice? Is there any ways that people have overcome their own rigidity and become more open minded?

    Thanks

    I don't think it is strange - a lot of people have their "types" and it might be you haven't met the right person who fits in that category. That being said, love isn't based on looks alone. You can fall for their personality or character.

    You're right, but I feel that the fact I am attracted to so few people will actually prevent me from getting to know people My ex fitted my type and I can't help but compare everyone to her.
