Dear John,
I’m 15. I’m an insecure person. I always think other girls are better than me. I worry too much about what people think about me. I have wanted a relationship since I was 10. Some boys think I’m pretty and nice and they would like to go out with me, but I don’t like them.  
Actually, I’m not in love with anyone. I’ve kissed some boys, but I’ve never had a real relationship. I want a boyfriend who loves me. My best friend has a boyfriend and they are always together and I feel  lonely. How can I attract boys?

Slow down, baby! you may not believe this, but I was chronically shy until I was about 22 years old. Every time I spoke to a girl I thought I was going to have a heart attack! For every lonely teenage girl there is a lonely teenage boy...
Just don’t rush these things and it will come, you’ll see!

Dear John,
I live in Venice and I’ve got a little/enormous problem: I like a guy I’ve already met. Just imagine, I’m single... he’s in my best friend’s class... we’ve chatted on FB... he’s nice and kind... what can I even hope for? OK, now I’m not shy, on the contrary I’m outgoing, always smiling, but when I try to write to him I worry about looking good, sounding funny, friendly, pretty... I know, I’ve always been told: just be yourself, but when you’re not self-confident... I would like him to notice me... but I cannot face the idea of a date! What can I do?

If you’re not confident enough now, the best thing is to go out in a group. Your attractive personality comes across in this message... So it is you... So be yourself and let me know how you get on!

Dear John
I’m broke, without friends, lonely, no girlfriend, my family hates me, I need to rebuild my life... What should I do?

You’ve answered your own question: rebuild your life. Have the courage to leave and find a new place where people deserve you.
