Lawn Mower Start Problems

I live alone in a town house community where we are required to do our own lawn upkeep. Since my yard is so tiny I had been using a rotary lawn mower; however, I felt like it didn't do that great of a job, so this year I finally bought a gas mower. Trouble is, I can't seem to start the thing no matter how hard or fast I pull the start cord (of course I have no trouble re-starting if it's already been running for a while). I don't know if it's the way I'm pulling the cord or what, but my dad and boyfriend seem to have no trouble getting it started. Of course I don't want to have to rely on one of them every time I want to mow my lawn. Anyone have any suggestions??
