How Can a Shy Adult Get Dates Without Using Online Dating?
Many shy adults feel like there aren’t any options when to meet someone special without using online dating sites. After all, it’s hard to introduce yourself to a stranger when your palms start sweating and your chest tightens up. When the symptoms of shyness or social anxiety kick in, the only thing we want to do is disappear.
Q: What did the shy pebble say?
A: I wish I was a little boulder
It doesn’t have to be that way though. Even though you may not be an instant Romeo, building your confidence with small steps will improve your love life.
Here are some ways to train yourself that I’ve found helpful.
A Little Bit of Background
I suffered from shyness and social anxiety for years in my late teens and early twenties. Oh yeah, had some serious depression too. It took me a long time to deal with these challenges, but I discovered that there was no “magic bullet.” It was all hard work.
I’m now 38 and consider myself to be very confident. I can start conversations with random strangers, ask attractive women out for a date, and don’t have any problems making friends.
I definitely don’t miss the days where I would break into a sweat if more than a couple of people were looking at me. Working on your own shyness will open a whole new social world.
