Self-Esteem

It begins with you, and your attitude. There are a lot of misconceptions about what type of guys women date. Most guys start thinking, oh they only date the rich guys with thick wallets, or those supermodel guys who look super hot. First off, if you're looking to find a date, you need to stop comparing yourself to other guys. This show isn't about those guys with Porsches and Ferrari's, it's about you.

Believing that you can get a date will help you become more confident. If everyday, you think of yourself as a loser, then honestly, you will remain a loser. Actions have to come from you; the will to succeed and strive has to come from your desire. Sitting around and feeling like crap won't help to your cause, trust me.

Now that we have focusing on yourself, and confidence taken care of, most guys start to be very self-conscious about their looks. Let's face it, not everyone looks like Brad Pitt, and there's nothing you can do about that it's all genetics. What you can do, is start changing your habits and push them into tune. Brush your teeth regularly, shower everyday, buy some fancy deodorant (Axe, Old Spice), comb your hair (gel, hairspray), and most of all wear a comfortable yet good-looking outfit depending on where you go everyday. If your still in school or college, wear something casual, if you're low on cash, visit some of the cheaper stores maybe in an outlet mall and look for coupons. There's no excuse for not keeping yourself in shape either!

Now comes the hard part, facing the real world when approaching a girl. You have to break that shy bubble that you're sitting in. Being silent, and thinking inside your head of all the things you COULD be doing, will not benefit anything. If you're worried that you come to work everyday, and if you mess up your life will be ruined, then don't try to find a date or flirt there! There are a lot of social gatherings, clubs, theaters, plays, etc. where there are plenty of women to pick up. You should use this opportunity to experiment.

Start talking, and joking around, the most important thing of all: try to have some fun. You will be surprised by all the success, and even if you do say something dumb or silly, there's no need to worry because you're not going to be seeing that person everyday anyway. Hopefully these are a few helpful tips to raise your self-esteem. The key is to be confident, don't sweat, and have a good time.
