Is it something likely to happen to me at my age?

If you are dating it can happen at any time. F could have done it to you.

Does F sound like the type that would have done that?

She could have but she is not the type.

She did not, is the best proof that she is not that type.

In that case, I will have to be careful who I filter out when seeing who approaches me.

It is very difficult. You might have to take the good and the bad. Besides, it is a valuable learning experience.

Or maybe I will not have to worry about it. H is still the only person ever to approach me.

It is surprising to see that the modern gal is still so old fashioned.

Maybe this is just how British girls are, or maybe since I am not as great as the other guys I have a lower probability of receiving an offer.

What does that mean? Have you left something out?

They may have more attributes that are desirable by a greater percentage of women than I do.

We have already discussed the fact that girls do not have a specific type of guy in mind. Guys usually pick based on endowment. If those guys are doing better than you it is due to their aggression, take charge attitude. Girls are attracted strongly to this type.

But supposing there were 10 guys, each sat at their own table, doing their own independent work, and there were 1000 girls coming in. Surely if one of them were getting the most attention by far, he would have attributes that are more desirable by a larger percentage of girls than the other 9 candidates?

Have you conducted that experiment on those guys? Probably not. Also is such an experiment repeatable? Would there always be the same result?

I haven't conducted that experiment on those guys, but surely there must be some set of qualities which are universally liked by the set of all girls in my school.

Yes, being confident, aggressive, not giving in to their demands, not letting them bully you, not showing any weakness. That is why bodybuilding is so good. They look at those muscles and think, wow he must be strong. Girls worship strength, despise weakness and will pick on it.

If you are strong then show it. If you are not you must project it, even when you do not have it.

Then I must practise finding a way to fake strength.

Or wait for a 'different' girl like H, because apparently since they like both men and women they sometimes look for feminine qualities in men and vice versa.

You will not have to fake it. It will come later.

Why/when will it come later?

When you decide it will. You just have to let it out. It is already inside.

That is difficult to prove. You will have to know that billions of people before you solved this exact same problem.

Apparently... but I don't think I have it yet.

I also saw C today but I think she ignored me on purpose. When I looked up at her I only saw the back of her.
