Why Don't Guys Talk To Me?RelationshipsWhy Don't Guys Talk To Me?<div class="ExternalClass7525E0B57F1D44AAB9BDB2928FF3E73F"><p>​<span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:17.3333px;">Hey. I have been single for a long time. And at times I get lonely wondering why guys my age don't approach me. In class I'm pretty timid but as soon as I talk to people I open up really fast. A lot of the guys at my school barely talk to me because they feel intimidated by my shyness. But I want them to know I'm a great person. How do I do that? </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass3357A3E5745A49A298BF13C11D59B4DF"><p><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:17.3333px;">We are glad you reached out this morning. Relationships can be complicated to say the least. We often find that special person when we least expect it. You ask how can you show that you are a great person. First and most importantly, be yourself. Don't try and be someone you are not. With that said, you can work on ways to become more outgoing and confident which will make you more comfortable around others.

Your friends will get to know you better and it has been our experience that the friendship often comes before a dating relationship. People like to be around people who enjoy doing similar things. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:17.3333px;">If you ever want to talk to one of our counselors about relationships, or any of life's obstacles you can always reach us 24/7 at the Boys Town National Hotline by dialing 1-800-448-3000.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:17.3333px;">One last thought, your greatness is within you whether you are dating or not.
