As a shy guy, there are several things you can do to increase your success.
You will not like the first, and it is not essential, but becoming less shy will help.
You might get yourself worked up over not being ‘perfect,’ but get this through your seemingly impenetrable grey matter – there is no such thing as perfect!
Since we’ve established that, lets also stress the fact that being yourself – especially when you’re just getting to know another person, is the best gift you could give to yourself. Center of attention: Being a shy guy, you’ll most probably hate being the focal point of any event, including a date.
All you have to do is talk about why you like a particular hobby, how you got into it in the first place, and in what capacity you’re pursuing it, amidst your busy schedule.
You’ll be surprised by how much fun can be had when you just let the tide take you in its current. Nobody’s perfect: This fact can’t be emphasized enough.
I am a shy person, and I must admit it severely impacted my dating for a very long time.
I didn’t understand that shy people can date actively and effectively, and even if I had I would not have known how to go about it! Even if you are self conscious because you think you are ugly or you stutter or whatever.
Usually, an informal, and an open-ended event means that there is no pressure on how you have to end a date.
It’s up to the two of you; if you ‘click,’ then you can make further plans, and if not, then you can say goodbye and be on your separate ways. Be prepared: Plan what you have in mind for the actual date in advance. It never hurts to be prepared in case of an unforeseen circumstance. This is not a scripted play where you’re expected to deliver inane lines on cue; this is real life.
