Just because you're surrounded by other girls for eight hours a day at school doesn't mean that you have no chance to meet a guy. Even though there's a lack of testosterone at your educational institution, you can find a bevy of boys in other places. If you go to an all-girls school, meeting boys means getting creative.

1 Social Circle

During your teen years, dating is more about socializing and having fun than it is about settling down into something serious, notes the TeensHealth article "Love and Romance." Going to an all-girls school doesn't necessarily mean that you -- or your friends -- don't know any boys. If you have a boy who is a friend, ask him if he has any buddies that you might meet. Likewise, ask your girlfriends if they know any great guys. If you don't feel comfortable asking for a fix up, suggest a group guys and girls social outing, such as ice skating, bowling or playing pool.

2 Extra-Curricular Cuties

Do you have a interest in making art? Acting, dance or tennis? Taking an after-school or weekend class is a way to meet boys. For example, enrolling an acting class at a local theater organization or drama school means that you'll get to meet boys who have the same performing arts interests that you do. Having similar interests sets you up for the start of a relationship.

3 Around Town

There are plenty of places to meet boys your age around town and in your community. Religious institutions and community centers often offer dances or other social mixers for boys and girls to get together and meet in an adult-chaperoned environment. For example, the Litchfield Community Center in Litchfield, Connecticut, offers "DJ Dances" for teens. Get a group of girls together and head out to a community social event where you can meet and hang out with boys who live nearby.

4 Work on It

You can use a part-time or after-school job as a chance to meet boys. For example, if you work every Saturday and Sunday afternoon at the concession stand in your local movie theater, you'll get to see the cute usher you're crushing on every weekend.
