But not to shy guys, if you are a shy lady then these tips will also apply.
When you see the profile of somebody you like the look of and sound of, it’s important to tell yourself that no matter how amazing they are the bottom line is that they are on the dating site the same as you.
They are looking to the same thing is you, they have the same hopes and fears as you.
So when you approach someone online it’s important to give your self confidence by telling yourself that they are looking for the same outcome as you and you should have no fear about approaching them.
When your confidence is low then using a dating site can seem like a huge obstacle looming up in front of you.
To try and get some advice, you will usually search online for answers and find unhelpful, general articles giving you poor advice that you just can’t implement easily, and often from “experts” who have never actually been down there in the trenches on a dating site looking for someone.
Whatever you are doing in life, if you are shy or lacking in confidence then interaction with other people can be a really stressful experience.
Many people will think that interacting online should not be stressful, but it is still a human interaction, and a very personal one because it’s about love and romance.
The other problem is that there is a gender gap when it comes to shyness. All they have to do is sit there and wait for the man to do the work.
If that guy is also shy, or limited in their ability to interact, then the woman can often throw her arms up in the air and he gets all the flak because a lack of confidence is seen as “unmanly”.
Let’s address this right now by saying that both men and women can suffer from confidence issues with online dating, and it’s the responsibility of both sexes and every individual should address those issues themselves, not expect other people to bail them out because of outdated “the man should approach the woman” dogma. Then start taking equal responsibility for making things happen with dating!
So let’s acknowledge right here that interacting on a website can be stressful and give you three easy online dating tips for shy guys to implement right now.
