    Whether it's trying to make friends or going on a first date, is being yourself good advice?
    Does anyone have stories when being themselves worked or didn't or pretending to be someone else worked out better for them?
    "Just be yourself" is used for people who are shy and act awkward when they can't pull off a normal conversation because they're trying too hard.

    "Just be yourself" doesn't always work because honestly, not all people should.


    "Be the best you can be, for you and not for someone else" is more like it.

    You know how much of a tightass I am, and where that £200 has come from, you know I wouldn't gamble it on a whim

    Put yourself in that situation, and you'll see how right I am :borat:

    P.S. It sounds awesome but I can of course only condone it if such a gesture constitutes being your true self
