If you’re a bit of a shy girl when it comes to boys, even talking to them can seem like a challenge. Here are a few things that can help you increase your confidence when faced with the opposite sex…
1. LOOK GOOD
You don’t need to dress up for any guy, do it for yourself! It’s true that when you look good you feel better about yourself, so put on a nice outfit and grab some lipstick and feel your confidence rocket.
2. CALL in BACK-up
You need some alone time with a guy to get to know him better, but if you’re nervous at first, call in some backup. Have your friends walk you to a date or come with to a party he’s attending - having people around to support you will help.
3. NAIL YOUR POSTURE
A simple yet effective tip. When you’re talking to a guy don’t slouch and bow your head, lift your chin, roll your shoulders back and stand up tall. If your posture is good, you’ll feel stronger and more confident around him.
Smiling helps everyone relax, so if you’re feeling nervous then smile and put on a brave face. You may be feeling shy but fake it till you make it! A big, bright smile will put you both at ease very fast and everything else will flow from there.
5. BELIEVE in YOURSELF
We can all doubt our self-worth sometimes, but the key to feeling confident is to believe in yourself. You’re a smart, beautiful, kind girl that a thousand men would be lucky to have on their arm and you need to start believing it – only then will confidence really come.
Being confident around guys isn’t something that comes easy for many of us, and it can take time to grow, but it will come and it could even help you find the man of your dreams!
