I got a sense of deja vu halfway through your post. Don't worry man, you'll find a girl and she'll love you for your personality and won't care about your weight, or some **** like that. You could go on a high calorie diet and start heavy weight lifting if you want to change it.

Many girls like skinny guys as they are. If you want to gain weight, there are a lot of guys on here who talk about bulking. Check the nutrition thread.

People who judge you based off of your appearance will never be worth your time.

Don't worry about it mate, trust me you're talking to the wrong people there are definitely girls who like skinny guys out there. People are just being *** holes to make themselves feel better.

If you start eating more you'll probably loose the skinnyness. Doing skip rope (20 or so minutes) everyday IF you eat a lot can really solve the skinny problem.

You know what, I think skinny guys are really cute. I really hate muscular guys. I just think it makes them look all douchy and most of them do end up that way once they get the body they want. I used to think this guy was attractive because not only was he pretty skinny but he also had a great personality. Now he has like a muscular body so he looks like a muscle head not to mention he turned into a ****in ******* which makes me look at him in disgust. The new him is really unattractive. The old him was better.

That's about how much my husband weighs. I was instantly attracted to him. Everyone has a type. My type is lean/skinny. I'm sure you'll find someone who appreciates you as you are.

When I was 18, I was 6'6" and 155 lbs. I was super skinny.

I then started to lift weights and now I am 6'6" - 270 lbs...mostly muscle.

How I did it - I lifted like crazy and drank weight gain supplements.

Join a gym. Start working out. I used to be skinny and weighed 125 pounds. Since going to the gym I now weigh 148. I'm still pretty skinny but have some tonal definition on my body. It will boost your confidence.

Except this guy is 115 pounds. Hey and guess what I'm 20, 5'9, and also 115 pounds. I've already seen a few people on here post the typical "eat more" advice but... well, I wish it was that easy. I can force myself to eat 3 decent sized meals in a day, for a couple days, but it's a bit difficult to maintain that amount of eating. I don't have much of an appetite, when I'm very stressed (which is often) I have an even smaller appetite, nor do I have the money to buy all those groceries.

Lifting weights doesn't interest me in the slightest. I still enjoy exercise, playing sports, or even just walking, but I'm not going to force myself to sit and pick heavy things up for 3 hours.

People look at me and think I'm a freak because I'm so skinny, and there was only a single girl in high school who thought I was attractive so apparently not many women are interested in skinny guys either.
