    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)

    Well, it mainly depends on who I am with; and my mood.
    I know that sounds extremely vague, but it is true.
    For instance; When I am with my boyfriend.. I generally feel very, very confident (most of the time, unless there's something I haven't tried before.. or thought about before. Or we try to talk about our feelings.. then I falter. xD). While, normally.. when I'm with my friends.. I just.. sort of.. I suppose I'm sort of sure about myself, I just don't talk very much (because I feel so much stupider than them all; and I tend to babble.. So I prefer one-on-one conversations). That being said; I feel very comfortable around new people, as long as no one I know is around. This also makes no sense.. it's just that I know I will most likely never see them again; so I don't bother about trying to make a good first impression, hence I just become very confident, and flowy in whatever I say.
    As for the "mood" thing.. when I'm depressed; I'm depressed. When I'm happy.. I get chatty.. for that matter though, I also get chatty when I'm depressed.. but, then it's more on a one-on-one basis.

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence

    A shy nature. To begin with; even if the person is able to pull out of it, as long as they are still in the same social group, they will "play" as if they have low self-esteem and a lack of confidence.

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?

    Depends on how approachable he seems.
    If he doesn't seem that interesting; ignore him, and wave him off with a hand (figuratively speaking).
    If he seems interesting, and we get along.. babble about everything and nothing.

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?

    Depends on how "strangerish" he is.
    I probably wouldn't go up to a COMPLETE stranger on the street and start talking to him. If I was on the same bus, we were in the same store, or at the gym; I would make eye contact and "semi-flirt" that way. (just because I find it a fun hobby- a smile goes a long way). If they like me, they like me.. approach me, and yes.
    If it's one of my friends' friends who is the person in question; I would definitely do my best to get to know him. =) Even just because he's my friend's friend.

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?

    Sometimes..?
    Depends on my mood.

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'.

    I used to; because I was the silent one in the corner at my old school. Not so much now because I moved away; and my confidence level wasn't that bad at the end.. but as I said before confidence can be gained over time, it's just hard to show that you're confident when you have already fallen into a "group" or "type" of people.
    Now; it's mostly because of stress at school. =)

    7 - Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?

    Hm, I sort of have with my current boyfriend. So yes. ^^

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?

    Haha. *pokes friends and boyfriend* they believe I do just that.. and makes me swear to believe them when they say I'm sexy, beautiful, pretty, smart, etc, etc..
    So now I'm sort of used to disregard what they say; and just say "thank you".

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?

    I have.

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?

    No. Don't see why that would be necessary. If you end up in a long-term relationship with that person; you'd be screwed.

    I am everything I want to be. Rather over confident with myself tbh.

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence
    Looks, Attention, Which 'social group' you are in, Intelligence.

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?
    I talk back to her and take that fine ass home with me

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?
    Tbh I don't find it easy and I usually think for about 3-5mins before I do it to make sure I make the best first impression - I think first impressions count for a lot in stuff like that

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?
    Yeah definitely.

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'?
    I wouldn't say I'm a failure, no. Although I think it's what I fear the most.. In terms of life.

    7 - Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?
    No. If I was to start a relationship I would need both of us to be confident and want it to work.

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?
    Depends what they say. Most of the time no, someone compliments me and I believe it but sometimes I can just tell if people are being fake

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?
    There are people who I know are hot but I would never get? Just because of who we are as people. I wouldn't say I felt inadequate though, no.

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?
    Generally, if I just want to pull but I know if I tell them the truth about myself they aren't going to want to then yeah I lie and just tell people what they want to hear - Although if I wanted more than a one night stand then I wouldn't lie because as I said above, for a relationship I'd want both of us to be happy and confident it would work etc..

    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)

    Never really talked to girls, many people in life. Never tried to, saw no reason to when I was young, stupidly.

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?

    In this case, me I would talk back. It is dependent on her attitude, but I should be fine, although sometimes become awkward.

    NO!!

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?

    Not all the time, depends on the circumstances.

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?

    Yes, if they were rich, really popular then its hard not to feel inadequate.

    OK i have compiled a short questionnaire to try and gauge the different levels of confidence people have when it comes to relationships and meeting people.

    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'.

    7 - Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?

    Please C&P the previous in a post. And please be as honest as you feel you can.

    Thanks in advance.
    1. Very sure. I know who I am, what lengths I will go to, and what I wouldn't accept. I have more confidence now that I have friends, but I still don't feel I can go round their houses without invading their space interrupting their lives.

    2. Lack of social life, bullying

    3.Talk back. I would keep the conversation going, talking about trivial things like what is the meaning of life probably lol.

    4. No. I would probably wait for them to approach me, or I would try to integrate myself in a group of some sorts and acquaint myself with the person in question that way.

    5.No. I can't care less if I looked nice. People should take me for me as a person, not for the clothes I wear.

    6. Never. Sometimes I think that I could have made better choices in life, which would have led to a better education, career, etc, but I am happy with how I have turned out as a person.

    7. I would not. But I would like to remain friends with the said person, indefinitely or until I am confident that we can continue further.

    8.Sometimes. I never take anything positive to heart because I have a very negative work ethic, I believe improvement can always be made, and so never happy with myself. But someone explicitly says that they mean it, it means the world.

    9. Not as such. I do have a tendency to feel like I am wasting peoples time when I want to talk to them or go out for a drink, I just think that they may not want me there. If I were to meet someone, I probably at first, yes.

    10.No. People must accept me for who I am if a relationship is to work.

    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)
    Depends, really. If with friends, I'm much more confident and could go up to a random stranger and say 'Hey,' or would smile if someone said it to me.. if I'm on my own, I'll think they're taking the piss.

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence
    Not too sure, really. I'd think personality is a major factor; I haven't seen many shy, easily embarrassed people totally transform into someone fully self-confident

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?
    If I thought they were taking the piss, just sit there and go red.
    If I was sure they were sincere, chat.

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?
    Nope.

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?
    Yea, sure.

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'.
    Not really. Only if I, er, fail.

    7- Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?
    Probably, yes. You never know how things might turn out, may as well take a chance once in a while.

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?
    If I know them, no. If they're a stranger, yes.

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?
    No.

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?
    Not so far.. probably would, though.

    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)
    Some days, superconfident, often to the point of arrogance. Other days, not in the slightest, and I don't even want to see anyone because I feel so unconfident.

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence
    Thinking about what other people will think. 'I can't go out looking like this, because xyz will think I look awful'

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?
    Talk back. Bit rude not to. I'd also be a bit confused, as nobody really does that sort of thing, surely?

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?
    Yes. I won't let on that I find them attractive unless they do first though. Not a TOTAL stranger by the way, unless I'm drunk; more a friend of a friend stranger.

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?
    Yes, because I never see anyone if I look really rough.

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'.
    Oftentimes.

    7 - Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?
    Yes. You can't ever be fully confident can you?

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?
    Mostly. Mostly it's just because they want to be complimented back or as part of an ulterior motive. Or because they feel obliged to.

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?
    ALL THE TIME.

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?
    Probably. God I'm a loser.

    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)

    I think I'm quite confident about myself. It is true that depends on the occasion, but I'm pretty confident of what I think, or how I act.

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence

    Depends on a lot of things. Friends (or people who could call themselves friends) might be awful if they don't help you being confident, close people should bear in mind how strong their opinions are and try not to start saying that you were wrong, or trying to put you down.

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?

    Speak with him, of course! I find really easy to speak with anybody =)

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?

    Depends on the occasion too, and if this person is with somebody else or not. If he is alone, it's easy to go with an excuse or sth and start speaking.

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?

    Of course. The day I wake up and I feel better, or the day I think the make-up is good, or that I found a good outfit I think i will be able to confront the whole world.

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'.

    I had thought it like two in my life, after failing sth or not being able to work something out... but really it was not to think as a failure, it was like thinking: oh c'mon, you screwed it up.

    7 - Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?

    Yeah, you learn from your mistakes. They say that is better to cry over sth you did wrong, that to cry over sth you were not brave enough to do.

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?

    Depends on teh people. It's like you know when they are being sarcastic or hypocrite...

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?

    Inadequate... I think that sometimes I used to think I was not in their same league, but finally you realize that there are not different leagues at all.

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?

    Absolutely not. I'm a person who does a lot of different things (like, I have a lot of different hobbies) so I always end up having sth in common with the other person, sth that I think helps a lot.

    Tomcat!

    1 - How confident and 'sure' are you about yourself? (briefly)

    Not very. I'm awkward in social situations.

    2 - What do you think contributes to lack of self-confidence

    Insecurity about looks, nerves, and caring too much about what people think.

    3 - Imagine a scenario: You're out with your friends and you find yourself alone, an attractive guy/girl walks over and sits down next to you and starts talking to you. What do you do?

    I'd make pleasant conversation.

    4 - Do you find it easy to approach and talk to a stranger that you are attracted to?

    Not in the slightest.

    5 - Do you gain confidence about meeting people if for example you dress up and feel good about yourself because you look nice?

    Yeah, who doesn't?

    6 - Do you ever think of yourself as 'a failure'.

    No, I don't allow myself to.

    7 - Would you ever start a relationship that you weren't fully confident would work? But you really liked the person?

    Yes - just because you're uncertain doesn't mean things will definitely go badly.

    8 - If someone compliments you, do you find it difficult to believe they are sincere?

    Occasionally, but mostly I just smile and thank them.

    9 - Do you ever feel inadequate compared to someone that you like?

    It depends. If they were a lot more confident than me, then I'd feel the pressure etc.

    10 - Finally - Would/do you lie about yourself to make you seem more attractive to someone?

    No - I don't see the point.
