Never bee kissed
Hi, I am 16 (male) and I have never been kissed or even had a girlfriend. I am an average looking guy. A bit shy. I always end up being girls friends and that is not what I want. i really want the companionship. Girls don't seem to like me, I don't have the best personality (I am working on it). Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Are there any other 16 yr olds that have never had a gf/bf?

thanx everyone!

Hi there,

it is important that you feel positive about yourself as others will pick up on this in how you conduct yourself. It is okay to be a bit shy, and I am sure you will meet someone when the time is right.

Just keep socialising with your group of friends, and be aware of how other people are acting as cues to your own behaviour. But above all be yourself - someone will like you for this, rather than being false.

You could also ask some of your mates (male and female) for help with this as they will have advice for you.
