Confession: I have never had a boyfriend. Ever (...unless you count Lucas Reynolds back in third grade, but even that only lasted about a week). And I'm almost 20 years old.
Is that weird?
Honestly, it's never really bothered me. But lately I've been longing for love. Every chick flick I see, novel I read, or cute couple I notice, makes me want to let out a sigh... And my daydreaming these days is out-of-control.
My mom is convinced it's because I suck at flirting. Which is completely false. I can flirt! Really, I can! I'm just a subtle flirter... Except I guess maybe a little too subtle... (90% of the time no one even knows I'm flirting!) Ohhh why can't a coy glance and a smile get me half as far with American boys as it could with the notorious Italian ones???
I'm trying to change, truly, but it's hard for me! I've had my eye on a bel ragazzo (beautiful boy) in one of my classes, but how do I let him know I want to be more than friends without making a fool of myself if he's not interested? All my efforts in flirting have been futile. I'm stumped!
So--do you have any flirting tips for a girl like me? And I'm curious: where did you meet your significant other?
