Getting over being shy is not something that is going to happen overnight. Believe it or not, it’s going to take some practice on getting over your shyness, and when you learn to do this, you can interoperate into the world of dating.
Some people choose online dating just because of this reason alone, that they are shy and cannot talk to women, out in public such as imitating conversations. Were women on the other hand, more than half the time they are being approached by guys, and the guys are usually the ones that are starting up the conversations.
Online dating is a great way to meet people, but just because you have mastered the communication through the keyboard, via means of an instant messenger and email, doesn’t mean that you are successful yet, as to be successful with online dating, you also have to have success when it comes time to meeting up face to face.
Back to overcoming your shyness. You will basically have to start talking to people, even though you normally would not talk too. If you are at the barbers shop, strike up a conversation. If you don’t know what to talk about, ask them how business has been. How long they have been cutting or styling hair. Barbers are generally good talkers and if you strike up the conversation, they will do a good job of keeping it going.
When you are out and about, just make eye contact with people you normally wouldn’t and crack a smile. If you are shopping, ask the store attendants how they are doing. By practicing talking to people that you normally wouldn’t, you will eventually begin to overcome your shyness.
This is very important that you can keep a conversation going on a first date – as if the person thinks that you are dull and boring, then there are good chances that you are not going to get a chance to land that second date.
Don’t use Alcohol to Overcome Shyness
Whenever people get a little too much alcohol in them, it may make that a bit more of a chatterbox. Sometimes this is a good way to overcome that initial shyness, but it is also a great way to make a complete ass out of yourself.
The more people drink the more they tend to speak their minds, and when that happens, problems can usually occur. Another good tip, is when you do get that first date, keep the alcohol to a minimum. This especially goes for the guys. You don’t want to make a complete drunken ass of yourself on your first date.
The more people that you talk to when online dating, the better you are going to get at it. It’s the same thing when you start going out on real dates. If you keep dating and things don’t work out, just learn from your mistakes. There is a special someone out there for you somewhere, never give up looking, and keep talking, and you will be successful in finding someone that is perfect for you.
