Are you guys confident around girls/boys you are interested in? I know when im around girls I like I try to put on a cocky jerk act. but the truth is i just get really scared and dont know how to act around a girl i like. I get really nervous too

Not at all.

And it's the old catch 22 again.

You are silly and flirty with people you aren't interested in because you're comfortable around them - then everyone thinks they're the one you're interested in :o

So far i've been accused of "liking" three guys from work I don't.

The actual person I like i'm so nervous around sometimes it's a pain to see them.

I'm extremely unconfident in this department.

I try to be as confident as I can though I still get the hang-ups everyone gets. You know like the heart pounding before I ask someone on a date.

I clicked on this post from the front page ready to say yes, and then you pulled the rug from under me.

I'm confident in the areas I'm competent in.
But this isn't one of them, despite one or two successes over the years.

And I've been interested in so few girls, anyway. (None for the last ten years)

I am confident but I'm mostly withdrawn because I've got nothing to say, and I'm classed as being quiet or just standing/sitting there for no reason. Or, if I talk just a little and try and share feedback I get told to shut up or get ignored.

I just don't bother anymore anyways.

Yeah I'm confident.
I'm also confident of the direct relationship between her hotness and my tongue-tiedness.
So, if nothing else, I just make her feel uncomfortable, so that she knows that I care. :wink:

I'm only confident when their opinions of me don't really matter, so I'm not worried about being myself or screwing up. As said, the old Catch 22.

I'd probably make an ass out of myself if I tried to approach someone.

Last girl I was pretty confident around but only because she was very accepting.. It was very natural.. any other time, no.. About as confident around the social aspect of things as I am about my ability to fly..

In those situations, it is a balls to the wall deal. I am very timid in social situations, but it never looks that way. I show a mask of confidence and it works...until the phone calls. Yeah, I can go for like 15 minutes without saying a thing on the phone. :lol: But if you can fake it, you're in!

I love that Catch 22 though. I have been accused of liking like ten different people at the same time.

I'm confident.

I can talk to almost any girl without feeling tongue tied.

I'm usually good at befriending people I'm interested in and talking to them on friendly terms, but actually coming to tell them to their faces that I like them is a bit of a challenge.

Totally confident.... in the fact that 9 times out of 10 I'll do something stupid and make myself look like a fool. :wink:
