Trust me I know I felt very invisible until I turned about 19. So hopefully you will learn from my mistakes. At your age the key to getting a boys attention is to be approachable. Guys mature a lot slower than girls. We know this. So while you might be ready to have a relationship and talk to a guy and flirt, he's still quite a few years behind you in terms of development, so he might be a little afraid of you. Might be a little skittish, so the more you can do to make yourself approachable like not surrounding yourself with your friends 24 hours a day, not piling on the makeup tempting though that may be, not wearing heels, not being too loud. Just be natural. Be yourself and let him come to you. Also a few things like smiling at him, making eye contact, striking up nice easy, breezy conversations will go so far. You don't need to make any grand gestures or go out of your way. If a guy is worth your time he will notice you.
