I know the feeling... But one thing I have discovered is boys look for girls that are confident, and that makes them beautiful to them. I have a hard time with that myself, and people tell me i'm pretty, and i guess i think im ok, yet i've never had a boyfriend, so confidence is literally the key. appearance is important, but comes second.

Yes, all the invisible guys DO deserve a chance, there's a guy that likes me and I never noticed him before. But I don't know if I want to date him. Maybe ;) <3 Ok yes. idk.
by pinklol56 on 4/3/2013 5:00:10 PM
We need to realize we all have what guys want, we just have to find the right guy. I think with some guys it comes down to timing, so many guys our age just arent mature and many dont want a relationship, that is why we end up with older guys and often getting into relationships with them.
And I agree, some of the best guys are right around us and we dont even realize it.

There is no one specific thing that attracts guys to girls. Guys are physically attracted to girls of all different shapes, sizes, ethnicity etc. Common interests are important. As are compatible personalities. The most important thing is that a guy wants to date you mostly for your personality, not just your looks. And never change to impress a guy!!

I'm the type of girl who depends on myself for almost everything, and I guess guys seem to like that because I'm always being complimented and praised. I go for the all natural look (Besides lipgloss), have my further mapped out, and I am totally comfortable in my own skin. The year prior, I wasn't as mature as the other girls in my class so I hid under baggy clothes, basically, I was the oppose of what I am now. I didn't have this type of attention last year and I fear its getting to my head. I don't know what to make of all this male attention, and I can't tell who's a predator or not, So I kinda just try to ignore this reality. Can you help me? I need help. Why are they all of a sudden noticing me? And for what? Is it my newfound confidence or my outer appearance? Who's the good guy and who's the bad boy?

Hey Jellybean10, if he still has a girlfriend I don't think you shouldask him out. The last thing you want to do is be the cause of some drama. If he's single, go for it! Good luck! Xoxo

There's this guy I like and my friend asked him out for me. When he said no, he said already had a girlfriend. I like some one else too, but I can't get over him!! Should I go ask him myself? I haven't talked to him since last school year..I liked him then too!!

I have had a crush on this guy for over a year now and it always works out that when I'm single he has a gf and when he is single I have a bf. well right now he and I are both single and I was planning on asking him to the girls ask guys dance. He and i have been casually flirting in englsih and he is always excited to see me when ever i see him at his work. (the grocery store) Sounds perfect right? Well, it just so happens that my ex boyfriend who cheated on me is his best friend. I broke up with my ex about two weeks ago and my crush says he couldn't hurt his friend by going with me, even if me and my crush just went as friends.. Is there a possibility that he likes me? Or is he just making an excuse so he doesnt have to go with me?

Hey 56082, why don't you make a move. Since he likes you, and already asked you out, flirt back. Ask for his number and if he would like to hang out sometime. Hope this helps! Xoxo
I have a crush on this boy and don't know what to do about it. He almost asked me out once and now he hardly ever talks to me , and if he does talk to me it seems like he likes me because we both laugh at what he says. I'm a little worried because we have alot of things in common. Any advice? Lynae P.

Hey softball6, I'm a tall girl too so I can understand where you're coming from. As you get older, boys will start to grow and get taller, so a few will probably be your height or taller. But if you really like someone don't let something as small as height stop you from dating them. The only reason people get embarassed about things like this is because they are worried about what other people are thinking of them. People will always have something to say about you no matter what you do, so you can't focus on them. And think about all the gorgeous women whose boyfriends and husbands are shorter than them. Victoria Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio's husband is smaller than her. Top fashion model Coco Rocha, has a short husband too. Katie Holmes towers slightly over Tom Cruise and Usher has dated a few tall women. So just own that height and guys will like you. Hope this helps! xoxo

In health class we talked about what guys look for in a girl and this is what the textbook said: they have to be physically appealing, they have to have mothering characteristics ie; cooking, cleaning.. And finally they have to be nice. If you have none of theses characteristics then scientifically you have no chance. good luck to everyone!

So i'm 13 and i'm very tall for my age. i'm like 5'7 and all the boys @ my school are so short! sometimes i like a boy that's a lot shorter than me... it feels awkward! What do i do?! Thanks!!

I asked you on this very article something yesterday. Now I need to know... I'm a pretty good singer so is that okay to sing when he's around me. BTW I sit next to him in Social Studies, Spanish, and very rarely in English. I can't text him cause' we don't talk so much and its very akward between us plus he doesn't have a phone (I think).Is this confusing?

Ok so I really want to know if this guy likes me. Lately he seems so be smiling at me in class a lot and we make eye contact. But he's sort of shy so we've never really talked one-on-one before. Once I went to the school basketball game and at halftime he jokingly took my phone as he walked by. Then I took it back before he could do anything with it. I don't know what to do?? He's kind of cute and I really want to know if he does like me. I'm kinda quite myself so I'd never make any huge move first or anything.

HeybPece*Love*Converse*, aww man you don have a lot going on right now. First thing first, take a ling deep breath. Close your eyes, breathe in handout, and release everything. Next it sounds like you need a break. Let your parents know you don't want to be in the middle of their feuding. Whenever one tries to talk to you about the other tell them to stop or ignore them. I bet the reason youre having these crazy mood swings is because of all th drama. I'm sure your bf wants to be there for you through all this, but if you can't really handle being in a relationship right now let him know. I'm sure he'll understand. Try meditating to balance your moods. Go to a quiet place in your house, sit with your legs crossed, clear your thoughts, close your eyes and rest like that for at least 5 minutes. Once all th stress is out your life you'll feel better. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Plz answer this. My world is falling apart. I can't trust my parents w/ anything. They fight all the time. My mom has lied 2 me and tells me not 2 trust my dad. My dad says not 2 trust my mom. Idk who 2 trust. Also, my moods r going up and down like crazy, and it's NOT normal. Sometimes I'm so happy and then the next day I can barely get out of bed. I went thru this awful low where I stayed in my room almost all day 4 2 weeks during x-mas break. I get so depressed that I feel like it's never gonna get better. I hide it from my friends but it is so hard 2 put on a smile in the mornings when I'd rather just break down and cry. My BGF recently turned into my BF. He is the only 1 who knows all of this. I like him so much, but I feel like I'm a sad excuse 4 a GF. My parents won't let us hang out outside of school so I only c him on the bus. I know he rly likes me 2 and it would break his heart if we broke up but I can't handle a relationship rite now. Plz help! Lynae P.

Hey proarchergal, we can't really control the feelings of others. There's nothing you can do but be yourself. If he likes you back, then great and if he doesn't he's not the only guy out there. Just contiue getting to know him more and see where it takes you. Hope this helps! Xoxo
MOD MOD MOD MOD I really like my best guy friend, and he thinks I'm really nice and one of the only people he can truly expression his feelings too. But he doesn't like me the same way I like him, and he knows I like him and he's okay with it. Actually since he found out he has wanted to get to know me more and hang out with me more. How can I make it easier for him to like me back??? Do you think he will ever like me?? Lynae P.

Hey, ok so i know you've probably heard million of these but i have guy issues. So the guy I like just broke up with his girlfriend and now hes changed the end of our handshake into a hug instead of just half hug. I've liked him for a really long time and I have absolutely NO idea how to flirt. Can you give me some not too obvious but good flirts? Also how can I know if a guy flirts and if I'm friend zoned? Thanks!
Love, Claud Lynae P.
by claudsoda on 1/18/2012 7:47:02 PM
Hey jollymoemoe, no I don't think you should confront him. If he wanted to take it further I think he'd let you know. But it is weird that he told everyon else that he likes you, mhmm I don't know. Let him come to you if he wants to take it further. Hope this helps! Xoxo
My crush told me he liked me and I told him I like him. I've been waiting for 2 months for him to ask me out but now he says he doesn't want to ruin our friendship by going out. I think he is just trying to let me down easy and likes me just as friends. The problem is that he told his 2 best friends he likes me just as a friend and everyone else that he likes me. I'm not sure what to do ? Should I confront him? Lynae P.

MOD MOD MOD. Today in art class me and my two friends were sitting at our table talking and glazing. Then I heard my crush and my other guy friend laughing so I turned around and they stopped. So I turned back around then got up to get a different brush. My friend said that my guy friend (not my crush) told my crush he liked me. Then My crush came up to me and said he was kidding. Then my friend said that's was my crush who liked me. He got kinda red and said no. Anyways, he always talks to me, makes me laugh, and comments about things I do. We always talk to each other and laugh and stuff. Oh! And he said you don't know I like and I said yeah I do (girls name) and he said yeah and you don't know who else.

OK! So last year, i met a really cool guy at winter camp. We talked a bit and i have seen him about six other times last year. In october, we hit it off really well and we joked around a lot and developed a pretty good friendship. This year, I saw him at winter camp again and we really really hit it off. We were hanging out the whole time and we have a lot in common. I have now got the biggest crush ever on him. I gave him my number, but i didnt have my phone with me so i didnt get his. This was just two days ago, how long should i wait for him to text me? I can get his number easily, but I want to see if he will text me soon first. ALSO, he is my friend on facebook, if he doesnt text me soon should i send him a fb message? Thanks Lynae P.

Hey ButterflyGirl18, check out this aricle on how to achieve wavy hair.
And you can use those things to dye your hair. It's a great way to save money and give your hair a break from all those chemicals. Search google for some recipes to make the dye. My guess is like any other hair coloring you get done, you let it fade out on it's own. So by doing that you could go back to black. Hope this helps! Xoxo
