Learn to expose properly in the first place. Get a good book from your library.

Understanding Exposure by Brian Peterson, or any John Hedgecoe book.

After learning to correctly expose for what you want, then you have to realize that all photos need some kind of post processing. Film didn't develop itself and neither does digital. Try shooting in raw and batching shoots.
What mode are you shooting in? Metering mode? Ezposure compensation? Make sure it is not too underexposed. The bar should be towards the middle. Double ,check the settings and re-read the manual to be sure.
