What is the best way to get a girlfriend? I'm 17 and never really had a gf. I was asked by a good friend once but I turned her down because I didn't think I was ready for dating. I not looking for someone to have sex with, more just a female companion. In a way I kind of don't want to date because what if she wanted to have sex with me. I'm still a virgin, (never even seen a girl naked in the flesh) so the whole thing of sex kinda scares me. I guess you could say I don't have the courage to have sex.
Now at my school there are so many hot girls who I know are single but somehow I don't think that they would date me because I don't think I'm of their caliber. These girls always seem to travel in packs with their other hot friends, so I don't seem to want to walk into the middle of them and make a fool of myself.
I guess what I'm looking for is a good way to make friends with one of these girls and then maybe ask her out. That brings up another good question, how does someone go about asking a girl out, and once they do what kind of things do they do together?
I'm a total newb when it comes to this type of thing so any input would be helpful. I will throw in a picture of my self so you can kinda see how I look and judge if you think I got a shot at it.
