I know I’m not pretty or anything

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:40 am

Why Not Me?Don’t go changin’ on August 31, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I am very shy. I know I’m not pretty or anything but I’m 16 and never had a boyfriend. I have low self-esteem and that is why I’ve been told I can’t get a boyfriend, and the guys I like never like me back — they always like the skinny show-all types. My friend who is pretty, all the guys stare at her. My question is how to attract the guy I am interested in without changing myself.

— Depressed

Dear Depressed,

Staring and liking are not the same. “Skinny show-all” and “self-esteem” aren’t either. But otherwise, you’re on the right track: don’t you dare change — or show — a thing. And no, don’t just “be yourself, blah blah blah” — be even more of yourself. Do the stuff you love; really really enjoy it; be good at it. Excellent boys will not stare; they will notice.

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  5. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways
    to help reduce content from being ripped off?

    I’d really appreciate it.

    found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely

    be much more useful than ever before.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability
    and visual appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari.
    Superb Blog!
