You may be starting out in the dating arena. Or you just plain feel awkward and scared around men. That’s a normal feeling. Well into my twenties, I didn’t feel confident around men.
Even when a guy liked me and it was obvious, I couldn’t believe it. I would shrink in his presence and stutter. So I wanted to share tips I learned over the years about how to feel more confident around men. Here they are!
Funny how this took me time to understand and yet it’s so simple and obvious! I learned that I didn’t have to pretend to be anyone else. I just had to be myself. I didn’t try to pretend to not eat or be dorky. I love to eat and have a healthy appetite. I have my dorky moments and can be absent minded.
When I embraced myself fully and allowed myself to be me, I noticed more men gravitate towards me. I noticed men falling for when I embraced my quirks. In fact, several had told me that it was those quirks that made me endearing in their eyes!
Relax and See Yourself as a Beautiful Asset
Loosen your shoulders and relax. You are beautiful, smart, funny, and driven. You are loving and giving. Why wouldn’t any man want to be with you? Once you see yourself as these things, men will see them in you, too.
Practice, Practice, and Practice!
If you slip up, it’s alright! If you get too nervous, then accept that. It took me several embarrassing instances to realize how to be myself and more confident around men. This is a learning process and you only get better with time. But it starts with you putting yourself out there first.
