Hi, I was bullied last year and it still continues but at not as often. It's not by any of my friends it's just this one boy (and his mum was good friends with my mum). I feel like no boy likes me because he has said so many bad things about me and even demonstrated (something's that I "apparently" do when I used to got to his house) in front of me. He has ruined my life and no boy will ever like me. I think I'm suffering from depression as sometimes when I think of what happened last year I go into a complete breakdown. I don't tell anyone about it and I don't know why. I'm not the prettiest girl and I'm not the slimmest girl either I'm a hour glass shaped but I am fatter. I have only told one of my friends who came this year because she saw him talking shit about me. I am just sick of him. No guy has asked me out and I have been at this school for 1 1/2 years. No guy has liked me. And my friends who came to my school this year are already getting asked out by guys or being in their top 5. Will this continue forever? Until I complete school? I don't know. I'm not suicidal or anything like that. I want to start getting skinnier than I already am. It's not really about a guy liking me I just want to be friends with the popular people so they can really see who I really am. Really right now they see me as the ugly fat girl. I just wish that I can be pretty or just skinny. Help me please......

Hi there and welcome to TeenHelp!

People come in all shapes and sizes that may fluctuate (especially throughout puberty). The changing of your body indicates that you are able to reproduce and that's a beautiful thing! Instead of disliking your body, try to accept it and even embrace it as it is. Perhaps you can put some positive quotes around your room or on your mirror so you're reminded of your beauty every day. I'm sure you've heard it before but there is a lot more to you than just the outside; I hope you know that you have some amazing personality traits, too. Popularity isn't always the best route to take and although groups such as that in school have a reputation for being perfect, that is often far from reality as looks are deceiving. The truth is that everyone is fighting their own battles that we don't know about.

You said you haven't talked to anyone about this yet and since this is impacting you so negatively I suggest you talk to someone you can trust. It doesn't have to be your parents, it could be a friend, teacher, coach, guidance counselor, etc. Maybe you can sit them down and explain what is going on and how this is affecting you. Talking to someone might be hard at first but it's definitely well worth it. Here's a list of people who can help you. If talking to someone in your life isn't an option right now here is a list of hotlines to take a look at.

I think a guys will like you in time. It might be well worth the wait! Besides, in a few years from now it is more likely that a guy will mature and like you more for who you are. I think there's someone out there for everyone and I hope you find that special someone someday!
