    I am 16 years old and I have absolutely no experience with guys that if one shows any interest in me I turn into a clumsy fool. Like yesterday, I was on the train and this guy kept smiling at me, and even though I smiled (only once) it probably came out as a 'omg why are you even looking at me' kinda smile.

    So what I'm really ask is, how do I approach guys?

    Just be yourself. I know that might seem hard but it really is your best option. Maybe a shy smile or catching their eye and then try to get them to come over to you and then when you talk to them be as outwardly flirty as you feel comfortable and try and let them see the sort of person you are

    Although I like to stand out with my advice :p: I am going to have to repeat what has been said. Be yourself. There's no use in acting up a character that you think is cooler. Faked and acted up characters are miserable and eventually fall apart. Be yourself, and sooner or later you'll be loving it.

    First thing is first: learn to like yourself, and come to realize that being yourself is the probably the best "self" you could be

    Oh, and btw (and this is not a flirt:p:) I for one, find shy girls attractive as do many other guys I know

    Lithium usually gives pretty sound advice.

    But in the short term, here's what you can do -

    Start a new thread - titled: I want a boyfriend competition.

    1) Post a picture of yourself
    2) Get boys to post pictures of themselves and where they'd take you on the first date

    You pick the best one.

    Sorted.

    Whilst I'm sure the advice given is useful, I think the major factor here is lack of confidence - or perhaps a heightened fear of rejection. There isn't a magic cure (apart from the booze) for lack of confidence in that department, I suffer exactly the same - but hope it is an affliction which deteriorates with age.

    your 16 who cares have fun with your mates, if you still havent kissed a guy by 21/22 ish then maybe start to worry a little and get some mates to teach u how to flirt

    for now enjoy life

    You're 16, thinking on the grandscale of things, I wouldn't put much weight on not having a boyfriend right now, or any experience. Don't feel under pressure to have one.

    So, I guess my advice is just to concentrate on having new experiences and enjoying the company of new people, and if a relationship comes from it, so be it, if not, you've made a new friend

    I want a girlfriend, how coincidental!

    Maybe someone should go out with me.

    I think at 16 also, your priorities and pressures run along having a boyfriend/girlfriend, looking good etc. It's a youth thing I think, more then anything.

    P.S. I seem to be getting myself in alot of arguments lately (TSR :rolleyes:), so, just as a precaution, I'm adding on to your point, not saying your wrong.

    :yep:

    (As for getting into arguments, there are people who just come on here and kick off about little things - don't worry about it - )

    How come there's two of the same thread?

    This summer I've realised that there's been a lot of break ups. Isn't that saying something? Stay single.
