    I was listening to mike posner - cooler than me and noticed how much some bits of the song apply to me. Im not a girl but usually i would walk down the street like im cooler than everyone else and not giving girls the time of day or even a second look. Clearly this approach is not working as ive been single for a long time. Its not that i think im better than anyone its just that im extremely anxious around girls and pretend to be confident to the point where i act like i dont notice them. Is anyone out there the same?

    I am similar to that but I do think I could be better than anyone else at anything. I don't believe I am better than anyone, but I always think "if he can do it, so can I" etc.

    You shouldn't be so anxious around girls. They just want to talk and they will judge you and may think you are being rude if you act like you don't notice them.

    'Cooler' isn't synonymous with 'better', so yeah I'm cooler than some people, but some are cooler than me so it's swings and roundabouts.

      I don't think I'm cool at all, and my sister likes to remind me that I'm not, because she jelly

      So yeah, I think I'm cooler than her. Also people who try too hard. Problem?

      I am the coolest. It hast been decreed that thou shalt never amount to the coolness of me.

      Some people i am, some people i am not. Depends on what specific people think is cool.

      Is being strong cool? If so, i have the edge over say, someone who doesn't gym it but a regular down at fitness first is cooler than me.

      Is being smart cool? If so, i have the edge over someone whose GCSEs spelt out the name of the US record label before the name 'jam' but a degree holder with a first is cooler than me.

      Subjectivity plays a part in establishing what is cool.

      What really makes a person 'cool' though?

      Their dress sense/way they carry themselves etc?

      Not particularly, I tend to be anxious when meeting new people and therefore can come across as being stand-offish even though I'm actually very friendly It just takes a long time for me to have the confidence to come out of my shell, so to speak.

      I've never been one to want to be part of the 'cool crowd'. It depends how you define the word 'cool', really. I'm interested in (and very good at, though I say so myself) a wide range of things - art, music, sports, history, psychology, literature - which counts in my favour, but then I'm quite shy and not very good at getting to know people properly, which is an important thing to be able to do! I've never been very good at small talk, unless the person I'm talking to is very outgoing and friendly, or I'm drunk, which is a bit sad really. So it's up to other people to say if I'm 'cool' or not, I really don't know.

      Pretending not to notice women only works if you are attractive. I've ran some tests :rolleyes:

      OMFG are you me?

      Apart from the anxious around girls part this is exactly me lol. Actually tbh I am quite anxious at times I guess.

      The annoying thing is I know this playing hardd to get/pretending I don't notice girls is not having the same effect as it did in school lol. It's time to start making moves but I just have tooooo much pride!!
