Hello. 🙂 I need some advice please. There’s this boy in my first period class I think is very cute. The only thing is, he’s Hungarian and doesn’t speak English very well, so he doesn’t talk much. When we make eye contact, I try to smile and he smiles back, and I often try to get his attention in other ways, too, but he doesn’t seem to notice.
I thought maybe it was because I wasn’t his type, so I’ll describe myself to you. I’m a girl, 16 years old, black (Nigerian American) and 5’3″. My hair is currently in long black braids. I would say I’m pretty facially, but I do wear makeup to fill in my brows and cover up dark spots and acne scars (i have a lot of discoloration). I definitely don’t think I’m ugly though. I’m not really slim but I’m also not fat — just your average girl with some concealable belly fat. My skin shade is not very dark but also not light either. I would say I’m about the same shade as Kelly Rowland or slightly lighter.
Are my looks the problem? Do Hungarian boys like black girls at all, or do they only care for lighter skin? I’ve been told by boys I liked in the past that they don’t like black girls (often because they think we’re all ghetto), but I’m not like that at all. It’s really messed up my self-esteem and I never try to go for guys I like because I fear they will tell me the same thing. All I want is for him to notice me. What’s your advice? Should I try or should I give up? Also, please tell me the things Hungarian teen boys do like. I can take it no matter how harsh it is. I just don’t want to waste my feelings on another boy who doesn’t appreciate me.
