Dating for shy people sparknotes
The most important point for shy men and women dating is to get them out of their heads and into the moment as much as possible.
If you’re a shy person, you probably know too well that you have a tendency to think, think, think when you’re thrust into new social situations.
The good news is that you can often fidget with your fingers on a date without having your date even know by keeping your hands in your pockets or under the table if you’re out for that romantic dinner.
The takeaway: Shyness often gets better with age and practice.
In fact, you need to simultaneously work on managing the anxiety that so many shy men and women feel on a new date.
Let me share a couple of techniques that will make you feel less anxious when you really want to sit back and enjoy your date. I’ll share a trick that I have used in my career which has helped tremendously.
At the end of the day, this is the main secret to successful dating, especially for shy men and women: distract yourself from the thoughts in your head and come out, come out, come out to play. Being shy basically means that you have a lot of personality inside you, but you feel uncomfortable releasing it to people you don’t really know.
