Well first time poster here, been reading for about a week or so. I'm going to be a senior in high school when i start back (next month), and for some reason it seems all my life i could never talk with girls. Like last year it seemed like i could somewhat have an intelligent discussion with them but if i felt any attraction to them i couldn't really talk. Was just wondering if there is some way i can learn to talk to them. Like if im talking to someone online i can say pretty much what i want but if im talking face to face then it's just hard to talk. I guess i kind of feel embarassed by the way i dress. Most of the guys at my school, are preppy and dress with pink button down shirts and white shirts underneath. I wear stuff like a plain one color shirt and some cargo pants or novelty tees (those shirts that say like "Keep staring i might do a trick"), and that doesn't seem to help either, i guess they see me as a bum sorta. I am kind of a dork (i own 5 PCs, 2 xboxes, every gen console, getting xbox 360), which doesn't really help, as i don't know any girls at my school that like games, or anything technology related. Another reason is my pimples (yea that and glasses kinda makes you a dork, lol), i mean it's not super bad but my face kinda has red patches to it. Incase your wondering i do have a pic of myself. http://img291.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc001356fs.jpg That is a picture of me holding one of my lizards. Any advice you people can give me. BTW i don't think i ever had a girlfriend which when i think about it makes me really sad. I JUST CAN'T ASK A GIRL OUT NO MATTER WHAT. I don't know why. So can someone give me some tips.
