Natalie Wilson...My biggest failure
I have been unlucky enough to go right through school, university (twice) and to my current age of 25 having depressingly kissed only one (1) person in all of that time (even missing out on the play ones everybody did in the cloakrooms at the end of primary school). I say unlucky here because I have been told that I'm not bad-looking and I get on with nearly everybody I meet...so lack of luck must be to blame.
The pinnacle of this unluckyness, however, was entirely of my own making. You know the way it goes...person spends years hoping, praying and failing miserably until fate hands them exactly what they were dreaming of...and they promptly piss it all up against a wall.

I did this spectacularly with Natalie. Natalie was quite simply gorgeous - there is no other word to describe her. She was three years younger than me at the time (I was 16...she obviously 13) and the kind of girl with the kind of looks, body and personality to make your jaw drop and your tongue to roll out a la Looney Tunes. She got on the same school coach as me and barely noticed I existed for the first few months. Then, she started to come and sit next to me at the front when the seat next to me was free. We'd talk about nothing special in particular, then she'd go back to collect her things just before her stop.
One day, she stayed on until the last stop...mine...with everybody else who got off there as well. I didn't even know she was still on...until she came to the front, minutes before the stop...and asked me out in front of the whole of the remaining assembled passengers.
What did I say? No. *No** What can I say...I was terrified! She was so upset...had planned to do it for ages apparently.
Goodness knows what would have happened...but I'd have been happy I know it. Typical...fucksocks :(

Let me guess…
tee-totaller? They never seem to have much fun.

(Apart from those that had too much to begin with, of course)

She was 13 and gorgeous, and you were 16?
Could've been dicey.

Think you dodged a criminal record there, well played inner-conscience.

The summer after my A Levels, my family, and many others in the village, were badgered into taking on a French exchange student for a couple of weeks. There were about 30 of them in total, and this year the coolest of the bunch happened to be the guy staying with us, so half the group would flock around him most evenings. One girl in particular was a drop-dead gorgeous, supermodel-like vision of beauty who made the rest look like a bunch of schoolchildren, and it was all I could do not to dribble on my shoes the first time she turned up. My mission was clear, and I went out of my way to act as unofficial host to the exchange students in the evening, putting up with the annoying 13-year olds and mouthbreathers just so I could be closer to this dreamgirl. Until somebody pointed out she wasn't 18, as I'd assumed, but 14. Luckily the word paedo hadn't been invented back in 1991, but I still felt dirty and perverted for weeks afterwards.

I find
most people who aren't that successful with the opposite sex, despite claiming to be decent looking are not unlucky.

Generally lack of success stems from lack of confidence. I think my theory has been confirmed with the latter part fo your post.
