Is It Me?

I am 17 years old about to be 18 in a month and i have never been on a date. Everyone tells me i'm attractive, funny, smart, etc... i've had boys interested in me, but they never ask me out. My mother and father say that they're just intimidated, but i don't buy it. I don't know what to do. My senior prom is in may, and i would really love it if someone asks me, i'm too afraid of being shot down to ask myself.

Uh, tell me about it :)

i feel the same even though i'm only 15. cause people always tell me i'm pretty, or they're jealous of me, or i'm smart, or my hair is perfect something like that but i know it's a ******* load of bull **** because no guy has ever asked me out. nada. don't know, could be my shyness and lack of confidence, but there's no telling. still, it is frustrating, huh?

Well, there is one guy that I think is pretty awesome. His name is Greg and he plays bass in this band. I'm not attracted to him, but he's very smart, easy-going and funny. I would definitely enjoy his company. Sad thing is he probably thinks I'm off-putting because I've made a fool of myself in front of him on more than one occasion.

I've seen two pictures of you, and agree with a lot of people in saying you are very pretty. Also judging by your taste in music and your literary abilities, you are pretty smart as well. There are probably a few men at your school that would love to ask you out to the prom, but are just shy and nervous of getting shot down by you. Is there anyone in particular that you notice and want to go to the prom with?
