  1. Airtight study. You should put that up for peer review.

  3. why were you waiting for the guys to make the first move? if you liked somebody, you should have totally asked him out.

  4. Either you're drop dead gorgeous and intimidate almost all guys or you aren't so pretty to attract the type of guys who are aggressive in their pursuits. For men there is a stigma, exacerbated by the constant presence of your peers in the university environment, against being rejected. Asking out girls is great, unless you get rejected a lot. Then you're that loser that gets rejected all the time and girls avoid you like the plague because they know you're a predator. In most cases you can tell when a girl is showing you "signs". That's excessive physical contact, an unusual interest in your opinions and just more intimate behavior than you'd see her use with other guys. A percentage of males get most of the attention, while the rest get little to none. For reasons stated above, those getting no attention won't be active in asking girls out unless they are fairly certain that the interest will be reciprocated. The same concept applies to women, which is why we have a group of people in both genders who are single and complaining about it while mostly likely willing to date each other if only they could somehow express their interest without consequence.

    My suggestion, if you really want a boyfriend, is to show some affection to guys you are interested in. If they don't respond, then move on and show it somewhere else. Maybe lower your standards (seriously re-evaluate the things you cherish), get to know people. If you feel your physique is holding you back, hit the cardio machines at the gym, learn to cook, don't eat processed trash, join a sports club (hint: badminton is easy tier) and/or do body-weight exercises in your room.

    There are lots of opportunities out there, and in the dating game you've got an advantage. This is of course assuming OP is not a troll.

    2. OR they could start with baby steps and do things like say 'hi'. Seriously, in between residence in first year, class, labs, etc. I've come to know at least as acquaintances a fair number of women. I cross paths with them on campus and never, and I do mean NEVER, do they greet my first. It's always me that has to say 'hi' or 'hello'. And I might add when they do respond, more often than not, there's no eye contact, no real warmth in the voice, and they'll never greet anyone by name. The best you can hope for is a perfunctory 'hi' leaving the distinct impression they'd rather you not put them in the awkward position of having to acknlowdge you. Hardly conducive to making any kind of overture.

    3. WTF are you guys on about? You and OP are both ugly sore losers - get over yourselves and stop blaming the other gender.

    4. @4.b

      I feel you bro. The fact of the matter is, we're not attractive enough for women to pay attention to us. They get enough as it is from better guys and don't need any extra from us. Either improve or drop your standards considerably.

    5. @4.c Well, I at least stay in really good shape, which I hope would help. And I figure I'm at least average looking. So, not Liam Hemsorth maybe but not Jonah Hill either.

    Oh wait they don't.

  7. Maybe you aren't a very nice person.

  8. Maybe you're just not very approachable? (ie. super attractive, rbf, or always with people) If you're looking to attract guys, try sitting somewhere public by yourself and look friendly - that should make things much easier.

    I consider myself to be decently attractive (I'm not incredibly attractive, but I do think that, since puberty at least, I've become decent-looking), I usually walk to/from class alone, and I try to be nice to everyone I meet since you never really know who's having a shitty day. Altogether, I think these things make me slightly more approachable and I usually get asked out by strangers about once a week. When this happens, I never try to be mean to the guys who come up to me, since, yeah, I know that getting rejected sucks and it takes a lot of guts to try striking up a conversation with strangers.

    1. 'I never try to be mean to the guys who come up to me'

      That's another valuable lesson. I am pretty courageous when it comes to approaching women, but frankly I'm getting less so over time. And the main reason is the way women react. More often than not the words, tone, and body language make me feel as though I've just asked them to share a dirty needle. Believe or not being asked out is kind of complement...no need to look offended.
