She may never have had a boyfriend, but I've known a few people in her position, and with most of them, it wasn't that there wasn't anyone out there who liked them -- it was that they lacked the social skills to know that someone out there was into them. My friends like this are just clueless about picking up on signs that someone likes them. The type of people that are attracted to her type tend not to be "in your face" but may in fact be timid themselves.Originally Posted by Maveno
What has worked for my friends is to create an informal group of people, based around a common interest. For example, one girl decided to invite "everyone at church" over for "DVD Friday Night" at her place, twice a month. Sure enough, the guys that were interested never missed a night and they were able to create positive interactions and memories without the stigma of "dates."
But, if she had come out and asked any of these guys for a date, it probably would have scared them off.
