    I can't believe some guys have only asked one or two girls out in their life, from what I know of my guy friends, they approach any reasonably attractive girl and have the attitude of the more you try the higher the chance of getting lucky
    Some guys don't just go for the looks. Yeh it's unusual but it happens ... sometimes.

    I've been asked out by 4 different guys - 3 of them several times, unfortunately. Went out with two of them. Big mistake. The first one I didn't like in that way. I just liked the attention and the fact that he'd asked me out... tragic. The second one I fell in love/infactuation with and it just went wrong... *sigh*. The other two I just didn't like in that way but we're still friends.

    If I was more forthright, I'm sure I would have been asked out by more/created more opportunities but after my second ex; I've not been interested in a relationship all that much and I let people know that when I meet them. I got hurt pretty bad and it'll take someone special to help me get over it ...

    I've asked 1 guy out in my life and got turned down. I'm glad I did though. We're best friends now and it just would have been wrong. If you want things to change, I'm afraid you'll have to create your own opportunities guys! Get out, meet new people and just flirt with those you like. It'll happen if you want it to.

    I was asked out for a coffee by a guy I met on the internet, but it doesn't really count.

    Other than that, I've not received any real interest from a guy for about 4 years.

    But if that doesn't work, you can ask them out .

    I havn't been in any serious relationships so I havn't had any relationship dry spells, but I have had attention dry spells etc when there has been a lack of men in general.

    When I look back, I must say most of these times when nothing has happened have been when I wasnt really looking for anything, and wasn't 'putting myself out there' so to speak.

    Maybe you should just be a bit more proactive and make things happen, rather than just letting these men come to you.

    Then there'll be lots of new people at uni I was the same as you til then (I dont count the random date when I was 15 it was that bad).

    Plus loneliness might = better A levels and the uni you want. Or was it just me sad enough to think like that...
    Yeah I can imagine that it would make my grades better to be honest! I would be so distracted if I had a guy on my mind all the time. It happened last year with a friend I had a crush on =/ Dear me.. I was foolish :o:

    I bet all the people saying never don't ever go out. Do you sit at home expecting people to call you up?

    If you're female and ever go clubbing/pubs/parties/walk alone on streets, you're bound to be asked out by some guy, try it!
    But it will probably be a pervy stranger
    Yer but does a pull/getting number from some random guy in a club really count? It's not exactly the most meaningful thing in the world...

    I've been asked out about 3 times in total. First one I said yes. And we dated a year. That was 4ish years ago. Then nothing till the start of this year where 2 guys asked me out within weeks of each other. I said yes to both but after the first date they were such sleazy jerks so both ended.

    Now its back to nothing.

    I'm 20, female, about to go into my 3rd year at uni.... I had plenty of attention from guys in my first year and dated 3 for a couple of months each but it's now been an entire year since I went on a date/kissed or had any proper attention - i'm starting to feel a bit abnormal!

    I don't think it's a matter of looks, i'm pretty enough with an athletic figure but in my second year i stopped going out as much - could this be the problem?
    Has anyone else had any dry spells for this long???
    I've been a LONG time without a boyfriend, so don't worry, you're not abnormal at all! What I've sort of come to realise is that this massive dry-spell has been really good for me, because it's given me time to work out who I am and all that without the distraction of a guy. Though it would be nice to have a new boyfriend (though I doubt I'll find one any time soon), it's also quite nice having a lot of freedom.

    I wouldn't worry if I were you, someone will come along sooner or later, it doesn't matter whether or not you're socialising like a maniac or not, I think it's very likely that you'll find someone (or that someone will find you!). In the meantime, enjoy your freedom while it lasts

    I've had dry spells of no boyfriends or guys I'm interested in for months (longest a year) but I always have 4 or 5 people at a time who are asking me out (usually friends)
    I'd be too terrified to ask anyone out! If they like me they would come to me, right?
