Sporty but not flirty PLEASE Help!

Hello, I am 14 and 8th grader in junior high. I love sports and have always been considered the "tom boy." But these last few years i have really started feeling like a girly girl. But i am still true to myself, a basketball player that loves to work out. I had a thing with two guys last year and i thought that a lot of guys liked me. But lately, this year i feel that no guy likes me at all. i am nice to some of what i call "nerdy" guys at school who like me and danced with them at the dances. But i really don't like them and i made sure of that. I do not like to flirt and im not very good. I try but i feel stupid. And the guy that i like i know likes my best friend. Which is not unusual because alot of guys like my best friend which isn't her fault but at the same time it really stinks! I really don't know what to do, i know i am young but at the same time it has really hurt me what it feels like to have no guy really interested in you. It has hurt my self esteem. And has made me mad and upset all. And is distracting me from my goals. I love God and respect his plan for me but i just don't know what all this means. Please help me!

Well you can like sports and work out and still be a girly girl if you want.

I love football and I work out all the time and yet I still can be a pretty girl.

I know it can hurt if the guys likes your best friend and not you, but don't give up hang in there, your time will come soon enough.

Because to tell you the truth I was very shy in school and I liked the guys but since I was shy I didn't go for them. the guys I dated all went roller skating, cause that was my thing. Then came my Senior Year I had out grew being shy. I even ran for Student Council Rep.that I won and that made me popular and then not only did I have a lot of girlfriends but I even had the boys talking to me and even now I am out of school and older I think that I am in my best years of life. Because I still have a lot of girlfriends and the boys all flirt with me. I have so much to live for and life is great. I still am into football and other sports and I work out a lot cause I want to keep in shape. And I am sure if you keep it up you will see your life changing in a very good way like mine did.

Let me know how it turns out for you and good luck, also it wont hurt to do a little flirty that is what will make the guys look your way more.
