"Many women place far more weight on personality than men do"
If this is true, how come ladies go shopping so much, as if they obcess (sp?) over how they look and thus choose guys based on the way they rate themselves? Besides, how do you get to know someone from 50 feet away without looking at the physical features first?
Look, I've been there quite recently and probably still. I'm 22 and all through grade school and my fr/sph years in college, I was pretty much cloacked to females. I'll bet I'm worse off than you are, I don't want a girlfriend yet, I've heard the stories and I'm not ready...
I had a girl friend
who wouldn't really be my friend. She was a lesbian, I didn't care but she might have. I made nine attempts at life during the year I knew her because I had a crush on her and kept it quiet because I knew it wouldn't work. Sadly I rebounded on newer friend of mine; by the time I cooled off she found out and pretty much assumed
I had a thing for her. I tried to fix it but she dragged another friend in and I lost them both, I was so depressed I had to see a therapist.
You see, Jetblue-320, the friends that I've had in school were the shy type and my family wasn't interested in me either, I still feel like I'm 13. I'm 5' 9", 115 lbs., blk hair, brn eyes, look latino but I'm hindu, thick lips and eyebrows, got buck teeth in which they're all asymetric, and I've got some acne. None of my friends talk to me anymore and I can't get into the college of my choice because I'm not smart enough -- I HAVE EVERY REASON TO KILL MYSELF RIGHT NOW, but I'm still here.
My therapist asked me what keeps me going; it's my drawings of airplanes. They are the only thing that have not lied, cheated or insulted me (yet), so I have some faith. I've given up on girls as anything but a myth, I'm going to live my life cuz I don't care anymore.
My advice to you is:
Please try to think of something else, something that you're proud of and feel good about. If you show this confidence in the face of a serious depression, someone of the opposite sex will
notice and you will
I really want you to try this, you're young so it might happen sooner than you think. Tell us what happens, okay kiddo?
Best of Luck,
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
