It is often very stressful to date or even try to date when you are shy.
However, being shy is basically being afraid of rejection.
This is a great video with a response from "Ask Danand Jennifer.com" dealing with one of the most challenging topics, how to overcome shyness and ask a girl out.
The video is really helpful because it offers what to do and what NOT to do strategies.
The words, along with all my pain, remained locked inside me. I sang all the time in front of my bedroom mirror, hairbrush in hand, imagining I was singing on stage to a devoted audience.
I wore the mask of a smiling, golden girl and nobody saw the real me. If I didn’t share my dreams then they could never get shattered. In reality, if I knew there was someone within listening range, I couldn’t even sing a single note.
A confident man can comfortably make eye contact with a cute stranger, offer a friendly smile, and strike up a casual conversation without seeming phony or full of himself.
The bottom line is all shyness in this area comes from a fear of rejection and this video addresses that right up front in an informative and helpful way.
By the time you meet someone amazing, you’ll be ready, willing, and able to confidently and comfortably ask her out.
If your beliefs about dating have been largely negative, it’s time to retrain your brain. Let go of any dating disappointments and other drama you’ve experienced.
Stand straight – When standing, pull your stomach muscles in.
Your spine would naturally align and your back is straightened. Practice doing this in front of a mirror until it starts to look natural.
