• I’m the Fat Kid in the Gym Class of Life

    Have you ever felt like you were the fat kid in the gym class of life? The last one picked? The one forced onto the unlucky and unwilling team? Like everyone is struggling to find anyone else other than you? Well I know that I surely do.

    You see I’m not conceited but I know that at the very least I’m decent looking, have a great sense of humor, and have a nice personality. The problem is that it’s apparently gotten me nowhere. I’m 18 years old and I’ve never had a boyfriend, been asked out, or even been kissed. I swear it’s like I’m boy invisible, actually scratch that I can attract the frighteningly creepy.

    All I’m saying is that what is it going to take for me to find a guy that I like that might actually reciprocate the feeling?? It’s feeling down right impossible at this moment. It makes me constantly question myself and over analyze every detail of my interactions with my crushes. It makes me feel like I’m broken or unworthy or possibly just unlovable. Yes, I have a decent self esteem and wonderful friends and family who love me so it’s not like I’m suicidal or anything but come on, at least one boy. That’s all I’m asking for is one boy to take a chance on me.

    Seriously, I can’t be the only one still waiting to picked? When will it be my turn?

      hi there, i perfectly know the way you’re feeling. that used to be me until earlier this year. unlike you i cant say i have a good self esteem, so many things have broken it because i as always the shy girl the guys made fun of and the girls talked about behind her back,i was always moving with my mom and dad and sister so i never got to have a good group of friends anywhere to stand up for me. I think you should first keep a good focus in that wonderful family and wonderful group of friends you have. trust me its very important and not everybody has it. the right guy will come, i know how sometimes it can just feel very sad or like there’s something wrong with you but there isnt. you’re a unique person with a lot of great things to offer otherwise you wouldnt have those wonderful friends by your side.

      just hang in there, my right guy came at 19yrs old, maybe yours will come by tomorrow 🙂

      I completely empathize with your plight. No one I have ever been interested in has liked me in return, I have a wonderful family and feel like I am simply asking for too much to want a non-scary boy to be interested in me. I have been asked out before, but it has never seemed worth the risk. The worst thing about being boy-less is the rumors that some people feel it is necessary to start spreading about. I once heard a speaker who said he had never had any dates all through high school. His first date was when he was twenty or so, and he ended up marrying the girl. Maybe there is someone out there who is perfect for you, and you have just been lucky enough to evade a bunch of duds these past few years. I hope you find what you are looking for, and hopefully it helps you to know that you are not alone.
