How to get your mojo back? watch

    after several failed and horrible relationships where i wasnt treated very well, my confidence is low and i feel unable to chat to guys in person and flirt or make a move. i feel like im frozen or paralyzed and cant do anything anymore, when ive never had a problem in the past. i dont really know how to approach guys or what to do to flirt or show i like them. im not very good at being single and going out and pulling people and having 'fun'. its like ive retreated back into my shell again and im too scared to do anything and just be confident and put myself out there. i can easily give advice to my friends and tell them theyre good looking and they can do it and to be confident they have nothing to lose etc, but when it comes to me taking my own advice i cant do it. im wondering if anyone knows how to be confident and get that self esteem back? rather than being like a little scared mouse who cant even chat to guys..

    The world is a big place and everybody lives their lives for themselves. That being said, as hard as it seems, you shouldn't let past problems weigh you down and affect you in life as you only get one chance to live, and you should live that life to the full.

    Also, if you think about it, when you meet a new guy past issues shouldn't affect how you speak to him as your past problems certainly won't affect how he speaks to you.

    Pull your socks up, smile and realise the world has a whole host of nice people who you might inadvertently be stopping yourself from meeting.
