I felt a lot like this when I was 17. I tried drugs, alcohol, and even attempted suicide. It seems strange, and I know you have probably heard it before, but it is true that no one can really love you until you learn to love yourself. Others sense your low self esteem and neediness and are turned off by it. Building self esteem isn't easy. It is part of growing up though. Find things that you like to do and do them. Try volunteer work. Helping others can help you to find yourself. It makes you see that life is worth living and that everything changes. The beautiful people today will be fat and bald tomorrow, and the ugly ducklings turn to swans. Hang in there kid. God put you here for a reason. It is up to you to find it.
