I'm 19 and I've never been kissed. How can I find a respectable girlfriend?
Let me tell you a few personal things about me. I am shy. I am 6'/6'1, 185lbs (that's not fat for my size), Caucasian, and I practice good hygiene. I do cardio and weight lifting exercise regularly, but still not as much as probably should. I have a summer job, but I want to find some year-round work. I dressed poorly and I had a small wardrobe in the past, but I am making good progress on getting more fashionable clothes. I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I'm fairly nerdy and I get very good grades at my college. I'm a semi-religious Baptist. I don't have any physical deformities, but I also don't think I am attractive. Also, I believe in celibacy, but I understand that I live in a sexualized culture, so I am willing to compromise with a potential girlfriend on social values and troubles from past relationships.
In regards to finding a girlfriend, I feel more attracted to girls who are competent and have good ethics, but I also appreciate good looks as well. I really like nice girls. I noticed that I like brunettes more than other girls, for some reason.
To get a girlfriend, should I:
-Go to college parties and meet loose women who like to get drunk and find men looking for sex?
-Wait for that unlikely someone to find me?
-Use online dating sites?
-Lower my standards?
Thank you more reading my super-long question. I think that the details I provided will help with your responses. Remember: the more advice you give, the more you can help me with my problem. Again, thanks.
