I just donít fit in with them - December 19th 2017, 03:22 PM

Hey guys. Iím in my senior year and I have a few close friends. Itís me and 2 other girls who are in a group and do everything together. The only thing is is that I just donít fit in with them. They are much prettier than I am, guys are constantly chasing them. The whole time Iím with them all they talk about is what guys are hitting them up for this and that, who they slept with, itís just constant. Whenever I hangout with one of them indivualy I feel like the entire time they are just snapping pics or talking on the phone to one guy. And then thereís me, Iím definitely not the prettier of the two. Iíve never even had a boyfriend and Iím going to be 18. And honestly not having a boyfriend is something that really has bothered me lately. We posted a picture on Snapchat today and some guy messaged one of them asking for the others snap and stuff. Nothing about me. There used to be another girl close in our group and she stopped hanging out with them for the same reason. I dont know... I really do like them as friends but I canít help and feel a little worse about myself each time we hang out. Can anyone else relate to this?

I can relate to an extent. Not so much in regards to friends but family. I have a number of family members hat are considered to be quite attractive and it's always been hard being out with them because it has led to me feeling badly about myself. As I have gotten older, I have noticed these thoughts have decreased a bit.

That being said, aside from this particular issue, do you enjoy the friendship and do you feel like they are genuine about being friends with you? If you don't feel like these girls are truly your friends than there wouldn't be anything wrong with leaving behind the friendship. However, if you feel like they truly care about you and the friendship than you might consider talking to them about your feelings and going from there. They can't change their looks but they might be able to support you through these feelings.

Best regards.

if you feel bad because of your friends being good with something you find harder, any good friend will understand when you tell them. I wouldn't have minded and it would be fine now, too if I had friends who were like that, long as they didn't try to rub it in or tease me.
