Q. how do i get a boyfriend and im really pretty poeple tell me all the boys ever say is HELL NO!! what do i do i have no life really no friends all i need is a boyfriend people tell me

A. Don't wait for "the guy". Keep with your normal life and try to do other things - join classes in things that interest you (e.g. foreign languages), go to the gym (where you can find ALOT of guys...), volunteer, join forums on the net etc. Be open to new ideas and invitations - and the guys will already find you... :-)
