Overcoming shyness and dating
Ask yourself what you are looking for in a relationship.
Don’t consider whether this is ‘normal’ or not, simply work to accept your wishes and desires. You can write a list of 5 things that really excite you about a partner.
If you indulge in the media rhetoric about all-night sex sessions and body image you will feel incredibly awkward in a sexual situation. There is simply nothing more intense than a deep conversation about how we feel.
Women often complain about a lack of foreplay in the bedroom and this includes talking.
It helps here to think back to times when you’ve received a compliment about your appearance – what feedback did you receive? Work to accentuate those positives and walk into a date loving the parts of your body you are proud of.
Before entering a sexual situation ensure you’ve double-checked your myths about sex and intimacy.
Perhaps you’ve had little experience within relationships and now find yourself wanting to meet someone.
Does nothing excite you more than walking down the street holding hands and being super-close?
Searching for that special someone is a numbers game and it takes time.
We must have the resilience to keep going, knowing always that we will find that person, we just need to continue to look for them.
There is a key difference between a quiet, introverted, unassuming and timid person and an overly shy one.
If shyness limits you, then it’s important to work to overcome this.
