How do i not be shy, I'm 15 and starting high school, I only get shy when talking to girls and how do I boost my self confidence.

I only get shy when talking to really attractive girls and my confidence lowers because to be honest Im just thinking oh my god what am I doing. besides that I'm a pretty ok person

Well I had that same problem all the way thru high school & even a few yrs after. My problem was that I was scared of rejection. At some point I realized not every woman or girl is gonna like u or be attracted to u so some will say no. It's a mind thing really, I'm in my 30's now & was in my mid 20's when I got past my problem. Just loosen up & open your mouth if u see a girl u like, if she says no then hey on to the next 1

Had the same prob as you bro. I'm 16! You need to just overcome it, don't think about it, just do it. It's not scary, and most girls are really nice!

You got that right! Some girls will be ignorant. Dont let them get to you either just...just dont give a "f" and you'll be fine! Brush it off your shoulder.

Practice! Just go up and talk to them like you talk to anyone else. We ladies are human beings too and we dont bite...unless someone is a meanie!

I have always been an outgoing flirt, remember one thing and it will help you. 99% of the pretty girls are boring shells of a human, talk to the girls with personality and you won't be so awkward or shy.

Well, think of them not as hot girls, just as anyone else. Control your breathing rythm to stay calm. Breathe slowly. Relax your eyes a little, and look around. Hope it helps. Gby
